Well, I’m turning 30 in six days. SIX days. That’s less than a week. It’s difficult to fathom. I’ve been thinking about it a lot in the last few days. Part of me wants to say “whatever, it’s just another birthday,” while another part is anxious about it. This second part wants my 30th birthday to be extra special, and it wants it to be the beginning of the best decade yet.
The second part is winning.
And so, first and foremost, I’ve decided that it’s time to get out of my blogging hibernation. It’s time to get back in “the game”, despite the challenges that that might present (at the moment of writing this, I am neglecting two group papers, two reports, and three articles).
This morning when I thought about going back to blogging, I realized that I once created a special layout to celebrate my birthday on my blog which was at that time on pitas. That particular layout was for my 17th birthday. Which means that was 13 years ago. Which made me feel old. Other than making me feel old though, it made me realize that I was blogging way before blogging was cool.
Yet, instead of being a professional blogger (something I still feel like aiming to be), all my blogs (yes, I have several) have been on a long hiatus. On a side note, before the long hiatuses, there was a lot of moving around too, which is probably the reason why I don’t have a thousand readers at the moment. Not that I would ever do, of course, but it’s nice to dream about it.
Anyway, as I said, it’s time to get back to blogging, a re-start so to say, and this time I hope I won’t stop.
I’ve been hesitating about getting this post up, thinking that maybe I ought to do proper housekeeping first, which is something I’ve been trying to do for the last six months or so. It’s too hard! So, I decided to just go ahead. I will change things along the way, or not.
Bear with me, it’s going to be a bumpy but awesome ride!
