Ok...so here is the deal. I know nearly 5 months have passed since my last blog entry and that is inexcusable. This silence has been deafening, ringing in my ears and causing me great stress. It isn't as if I haven't sat down 78 times with the intent of writing the "perfect blog entry" that would explain all of the reasons I haven't written a word in 150 days, while simultaneously catching you up on every little detail of what I have done during that time. I have written and rewritten the opening paragraph to this panacea of blog entries wanting so badly for it to be sincere and from the heart but it always comes out as something forced, self-absorbed (see the title of this entry for the definition of irony) and complete bullshit really.
So I've come to this realization...I just need to write something. Publish a blog post...break down the dam and let what follows follow. This is why this is a post just for me. I am writing this just to take the self imposed pressure of writing a new blog entry off of me, so that I can sit down in the coming days and actually write something you want to read about. Something that tells you what I have been up to and how I am doing (really well actually in case you were wondering). I am posting for the sake of posting, hoping that such an absurd idea is just the cure for whatever equally absurd reason has kept my blog silent these many months.
In closing, I apologize for being a completely lazy POS and while there is nothing I can do to make up for the last 5 months of being a neurotic mute, I can only tell you that I will do my best to get over myself moving forward and just tell you what's up because I know that's all you really want from me anyhow. I miss you, hope everyone is happy and healthy and ask you to come back soon to read a real blog post.
