Yes I’m still alive, despite the unwarranted void between my last post and now.
There is a lot I could say about my absence, I could try to justify it with some superficial sentiment of ‘time well spent’ or something along those vague lines. But let’s be totally honest, I got idle for too long. I’d like to raise the following question – “How can an individual become so hopelessly buried beneath idleness, or more to the point why does a dose of torpor linger in the system for so long?”
I honestly wish I could keep up my wise-man façade and answer those questions, but I don’t think I can (at least not in detail anyway). So I’d like to pass the baton to you, the readers. Think back to a time when you have been totally stuck in a rut, and recall how you managed to get out of it. Of course I’m sure many remain under the influence of said ‘rut’, and continue to struggle with it to this day. I extend my deepest condolences should this be the case.
‘Today’ is a weird creature, in my extensive observation I have found its inclination to obscure priorities and quite literally swallow your intentions whole. As the marvellous ZeFrank would put it I have a severe case of the ‘supposed-to-bes’ – a common side effect of living presently. I sat back and watched as the weeks slipped away, despite my best efforts to hold them steady. Please accept my humble apologies, as I gradually return to some state of productivity.
It’s been a while, but I think it’s time. University is around the corner, I can’t go back empty-headed.
