My Long Absence

One year and three days: that's how long it's been since I've written a word on this blog. But you already knew that considering you can see my last post below.

I never intended to take a break from blogging, let alone one that lasted this long. But life happens and days become weeks, weeks become months, etc.

"Life Happens." As dramatic as that sounds, I haven't experienced any tremendously life changing events in the last three hundred sixty-eight days.  I started working at a new job on July 5, 2010 and have been pretty much staying very busy with that since then.  Honestly though, I think that Facebook and Twitter really dumbed me down to the point that I felt like I could get away with writing one hundred forty characters to convey a message rather than a couple of short paragraphs.  I suppose it's just a testament to our ever shortening attention spans.

I'd like to think that this will be the first of many new posts but I also had the idea to blog two days ago but just couldn't do it.
