Where’d I Go and Why Do I Keep Coming Back?

Hello Internet peeps!

It’s been a loooooong while.  Crap.  Sorry ’bout that.  I just got really engrossed with my physical journals that I didn’t want to come back to the Internet (or so it seemed).  I’ve been on a social media sabbatical the past 6-7 months, and I feel much less drained and blissfully unaware of certain events/news.   You guys should try it every now and then.  Do me one better and go totally offline, if you think you can survive.

No particular reason why I did it.  Maybe I just decided some time last year that I was so fed up with hearing about everything going on with everyone all over the world (strangers, V.I.P.s, politics, friends, etc.) that I just “rage quit” from it all.  I have enough voices in my head telling and re-telling the stupid and/or embarrassing things I did in the past already, a.k.a. I’ve got enough going on in my lil’ ol’ life as it is and I didn’t want to add in the dramas of others in this too.

So, it turned out to be a great decision.  Although, I did often check certain group chats, but it was for school purposes!  And I didn’t count Youtube, of course.  (Youtube killed the TV star.)  For the most part of 2017, I was really focused on my physical journals and I loved it.  I was somewhat surprised by how full it was by the end of the year.  Not a single blank page – unlike my many other past journals that I never finished.  In fact, I can count that as one New Year’s Resolution completed for 2017: Finish something.  Check.

Anyway, happy 2018!  Hope it’s been alright so far for everyone.  It’s only been 3 days into the new semester and we’ve only had one teacher actually show up – totes not an omen or foreshadowing for something, I’m sure.  My number one New Year’s Resolution for 2018 is to reconnect with old friends, followed by blogging more btw.  When I wrote that down, I was so confident and all, “I can totally do this!  Easy-peasy!  Just charm it up.  Haven’t been playing these choice-driven rpg games for nothing.”  But so far, I haven’t reached out to anyone.  I might write a post or two first – similar to a previous post titled To the friend I treated unfairly – just to see how much I’m willing to publicly admit to myself, then slowly work up the courage to send the actual thing to them.  (If you don’t know why you’re apologizing, it’s not an apology, right?)  Wish me luck!  Hehe…sigh…

And that’s it for the first post of the new year!  Man, I missed this.  And I say that every time I come back from a long break.  And it’s followed usually by 1-2 posts and another long break.  And the cycle repeats.  BUT, not this time!  I promise!  Now that I know that New Year’s Resolutions can actually be accomplished, I will definitely be blogging more regularly this year.  You have my word, and if not, well….let’s not talk about that.  Heh.  Bye.
