I have a blog?

So a few things occured to me this morning.

1. I have neglected this thing. I realize that, when I set it up, I set it up as something that I wouldn't expect myself to post on every day, but it's been a little while since my last entry, and I feel bad about that. I know there's a few of you out there that like (nay, CRAVE) my blog, and I will try, in the future, to be more accomodating. Still no promises though.

2. My blog has lost its way. I set this up as a place where I could just write random stuff without having to worry about a context for it. (When I say 'random stuff,' of course, I don't mean 'mundane details about my life' or 'whinings about how girl-I-like doesn't like me'. Just so we're clear on that one.) It occurs to me that I've only ever really done this twice, and those are the posts that I'm most interested in personally. This, then, is my new mission statement: I need to harness my inner Sedaris (more the writer part, less the gay part) as I have done in the past, and I need to reconnect with what makes writing fun for me. That's what this blog is for, and that's what I intend to use it for from now on. This is not to say that I will cease with the posting of fun and humorous links - I love that stuff as much as the next guy - but that's not the main purpose anymore, just a side thing for when I'm bored. But really, when I'm bored, shouldn't I then be writing?

3. Chili cheese fries before bed = strange, strange dreams.

Having recently graduated from college, I am currently in the midst of a massive job hunt that spans both time and space. As such, my posting may still be few and far between. However, I will do my best to bring this blog back to where I wanted it to be when I started it. If anyone has any objections, you know where to find me.

That's all.
