I’m sure everyone is on the edge of their seat waiting for this next blog post. First and foremost, there hasn’t been anything different in my life that has prevented me from posting. Things are going very well for me both personally and professionally. I’ve been getting in good shape for some upcoming runs I have and there has been plenty going on business to keep busy. I will start getting back into the routine of posting and hopefully put together some better, well thought out entries instead of posting just to post. It’s funny because during the course of my day I still think about funny things that happen to me and I say to myself “that would make for a good blog entry.” Why I’m not putting it down on paper I can’t explain. It’s just the feeling of constantly maintaining something that really has no payoff. So after some thought I just will use this as an outlet when I feel like I have something to write about rather than writing about everything and anything.
I think it’s hilarious because I had a person last night ask me how the blogging was going. Since I can never tell if the person checks in daily and knows I haven’t been blogging or if they are just casually asking about it, I have to frame my answer. I don’t just come out like an egomaniac and say “Oh, do you miss my blog?” So in my mind I know the person probably is wondering what’s going on but I just try to play it normal. I find myself doing this more often in terms of thinking something but saying something else. It becomes a game. I think it’s because I’ve been reading the Fountainhead and the characters in that book are really thoughtful and manipulative. I have no malicious intent but it’s fun to play the game. I’ve also been playing the eye contact game where you just completely stare at the person you are talking to. I know some people probably do this naturally but I sort of force myself to do it. You’d be surprised how many people just wander their eyes around when talking to you. Ahhh, isn’t life fun.
