Month: January 2013

Resolutions Schmesolutions!

It seems like every year, along with the rest of you, I tend to make resolutions for the new year.  And, like you, I hardly ever do any of them.

This year I decided to try something new.  I made silent resolutions.  I didn’t tell anyone what I was resolving to do or change about myself.  I’m not sure I did this, probably to avoid having to be reminded when I inevitably fail at whatever said resolutions are.

That said, I will let you know that so far in 2013, I’ve been doing pretty good at my resolutions.  Of course they’re secret, so I could be lying to you right now. (Don’t worry, I’m not.)  While not perfect at the things I promised myself I’d change, I’m doing the best I can, given the hand that I’m dealt with.

It’s hard to believe that it’s been a month already in 2013.  It really is true what they say when you’re younger — time flies faster the older you get.  It seems like 2012 flashed by in the blink of an eye.  Not that it’s a bad thing. 2012 was a pretty terrible year, on the whole.  Sure, there were some good things that happened, but for the most part, it wasn’t the best.

I’m going to continue trying to keep my secret resolutions, and try to get out of this rut that I’m in.  There’s only one direction to go, and that’s up. (That sounds really tacky to write, but it’s true.)

Sheesh, you’d think I was dead

I was reading through this here blog the other day, and it appears that I haven’t updated in almost 2 years.  Wow.  You’d think I was dead if you didn’t really know me, but followed along to my super witty posts about my computer, and running. (That’s apparently all I’ve written about in years. Pathetic.)

So much has changed over the last few years, but there’s no real reason to bore you with the details, is there?  If you’re in my life and care about those sorts of things, you probably already know about all of them anyway.

Let’s just say that life is never what you expect, and people let you down, no matter who they are.

I don’t have much new to say, without sounding like a whiney asshat, so I’ll keep this brief.  I’m still alive.  I still play drums. I still build and maintain websites.  I haven’t written much in the last year, but I have a few draft posts here of songs I’ve written that I’m just waiting for the opportune moment to publish.

Hope you’re well.  Yes, you, internet stranger.  I’ve missed you.
