Still here.

Its not that I have forgotten I have a blog its that I have stopped caring.

The rise of Facebook, Status Updates, the race for Likes, and instant gratification have made long-winded blogs a thing of the past. At least in my personal opinion. Well, now that I think about it I suppose they have been replaced with Vlogs and Podcasts. Much how good books get turned into bad movies, written pourings of the soul become flashy videos filled with special effects and a soundtrack by Kanye West.

The other day Facebook reminded me of an event that took place 7yrs ago, which led me in search of certain images long since forgotten, which led me to this old blog of mine. Since then I have been flipping through the posts like an old man flipping through a highschool yearbook only to realize they don't recognize half the faces.
Going through old posts I cant help but chuckle at the enthusiasm I once had, but also I can't help but frown at how little things have actually changed.
Not to say that life has been a constant downward spiral or anything of the sort, there have been plenty wonderful moments in the past years, memories that I wouldn't trade for anything in the world... but that sense of "I do not know what I am doing with my life" has not gone away. Even after all these years I am without a sense of direction. Its pretty frustrating.

If you are reading this... you are probably here by accident hah. Or a subscriber with an active account? Either way I am surprised you are reading this.
I think I need to keep writing posts here and there if only to ensure that the blog does not close on me. Its nice to be able to back in time every now and then, I would be upset if it all just disappeared one day.

Hope you are well.
