post #3 in 2007

Yes, this is only my third post of 2007. Can it be that I've got bored of this whole blog thing?

Truthfully it's bigger than the blog: I'm bored of the fucking Internet. Sure, I'll flip through a few sites during the workday, but I don't go much further than the NYTimes and CBC. I find that I'm not even e-mailing as much as I used to, which means I feel somewhat out of touch with a number of friends. (Yes, I mean you in Portland, and you in Santa Cruz, and you in Singapore - I'm not going to pull a magic mirror Romper Room thing and start naming them all, but you get the gist.) I guess if you want to look at the positive aspect of not spending much time on the computer, it might mean that I'm having an enjoyable January, one that's full of activity and (yes!) fun. The negative side is that I'm not writing as much as I should. The blog provides an outlet, and it's one that I seem to be shunning for the time being.

Will I make more of an effort to write? Stay tuned. I'll understand if I've already lost you.

Some of you (and a couple of you have even e-mailed!) are wondering where I've been hiding since I don't seem to be blogging. My life has been a little hectic of late (but in a decidedly good and positive way) and I haven't been much in the mood to write on here. But I was thinking this morning that I miss my relationship to this blog, so look for me to be posting more over the next few weeks. You haven't seen the last of me! (I moved my home PC as well, which I'm hoping will create some more "energy" in my apartment that will get me writing more.)

Stay tuned.

Hello 2007!

So I'm trying to figure out whether it's too late to ponder my 2006. Strangely, I'm not much in the mood to look back on the 12 months of 2006. It's not that it wasn't a memorable year - the fact that it was my first full year as a single person since 1998 makes it somewhat noteworthy - but I haven't been into the introspection thing over the last few weeks. Which, of course, I find surprising since I'm rarely not into introspection. I guess part of it is that I've been having such an entertaining last couple of weeks, I haven't felt the need to revisit the past. I'm looking forward, not behind.

Of course all that can change in a beat. Stay tuned.

At some point I should write out a list of goals I have for 2007.
