You know, it’s pretty weird to work out some of your issues on a blog when you really stop to think about it, but sometimes I have to laugh at myself. I would never want to take myself too seriously. But I’ve also recently realized that aside from all my jokes of having anti-social tendencies, I actually do find myself needing to reach out to people during times of confusion. It helps immensely to talk it out and in this case, to also write it out, and I’ve been spending a lot of time with friends lately. Guess I’m not really such a hermit after all. I liked the analogy that someone had left in comments that this period of angst is not unlike the angst you go through in high school and college years. Maybe she is right. I’m listening to all the same music that I listened to back then. It helps.
I just want to thank all of you who come and visit the blog and leave your nice and often helpful comments, especially in recent posts. I know that I don’t respond to every single one and that is more of a symptom of not being able to have threaded comments, something that I need to address when I overhaul this blog someday, but that’s a huge undertaking and not exactly high on my priority list at this point. I keep thinking to myself that I am busy, but not busy. Does that make sense? As the holidays approach, there are so many things that I need to do and cross off my list, but I find myself much more motivated and productive when I’m really slammed. Since this year feels like it never just got off the ground in any meaningful way, I just have to readjust to this pace. It will happen. We’ve been there before. It may be a dip, but it’s not rock bottom. We’ll tighten our belts, use our brains and imagination and all that other hippie dippie self help stuff. If it all fails, I’ll go forage for spare change under the cushions of the couch and go get a tattoo.
