In the beginning of October, I made a bold leap to Squarespace in an effort to try something new and different. I loved the look and how easy it was to navigate. I had several good options for layouts and design. One of the biggest pluses for me was how awesome it was for my photography. But, for reasons unknown to me other than a mini existential crisis of sorts, I kept feeling a strange urge to go back to WordPress.
Over the past several months I’ve done things, said things, admitted things. A coming out of sorts. I embraced the real me and finally started to do things I wanted to do. Like get my nose pierced. That hurt like a mofo, but it was worth it.
When it comes to writing, I obviously haven’t been sharing anything publicly, though I have been scribbling in various notebooks and journals. Nothing special, mind you. Mostly just random yammering which is to be expected when your brain is fried and anxiety is often high.
As with previous attempts, I have no clue what I am going to do with this blog. Having no immediate direction other than to the coffee pot is probably not a wise idea, but I guess it’s better than doing nothing at all. When not jotting down notes into my planner or scrolling Twitter or Facebook, I’ve had my nose buried in a silly game on my phone for the past month. Good for keeping me occupied, bad for productivity. As Sinatra once crooned, “That’s life.” I’ve needed the mental break anyhow.
