Guys, I've been awful. I've neglected you for no other reason that pretty much the second I posted about being happy, parts of my world seemed to implode. Things I thought were true weren't and things I put my hope in let me down. It's a trying year, apparently. In light of all this, I did the opposite of what I should've done. I didn't start writing to get out my feelings. I closed down. I shut down. I internalized it and it's been eating away at me. Some days, it actually feels like my chest might collapse, though that's from a misplaced rib, so the chiropractor tells me.
The point is, I haven't been giving this site, or all of you, its due. It's time I stop messing around and start pursuing something again. That starts here. It starts with not missing blog deadlines anymore.
I'm going to do better. I promise.
