TO BE HONEST the real goal is to get this blog up a running by the beginning of next year but listen. I just got off the phone with my parents and I need to feel like I did SOMETHING.
To be super frank I really do not expect anyone to really read the garbage trite that I come up with. I haven’t really written for fun in the last ~3 years. In fact, the most writing I do at my job involves emails and reports in which its target audience maybe understands about 60 percent of it.
But here’s the thing: I like writing. I’ve always liked writing. Especially compared to science and math, which in hindsight is absolutely hilarious since that’s what I now do for a living (*points at my parents off screen* this one’s for you). And I want to write again. I want to stop writing shit out, reading it, be overcome with the clear feeling that its just not good enough and delete the post I spent the last 3 hours on.
Plus I have spent the majority of 2017 on the verge of collapsing into a violent heap of anxiety so I deserve to enjoy being a goddamn human being for at least a couple hours a week.
So I’m starting somewhere easy. I’m just gonna…. talk about books. and games. and maybe some TV (I don’t watch a lot of it. The reason why is a discussion for another day) I’m going to ease my way back into this whole “”writing”” semi-journaling semi-reviewing, semi-writing shit out and pressing publish and never looking at it again because it may make me want to DIE.
