Shady’s back! …alright, I’ll stop quoting decade-old Eminem. It’s not quite as cool typing it out as it is saying it, anyways.
So, you’re probably wondering where I’ve been, where my posts have been, and why the heck I haven’t called you lately. Okay, so you probably didn’t actually notice I was took a hiatus from blogging. It’s okay, I’ll get over my apparent disappointment in your lack of interest in my posts…eventually. But in all seriousness, I sincerely apologize for not filling up ten minutes of your time every week with my meandering words and thoughts. I know, I’m such a terrible person. What can I say? I’m a writer, I like to write. It’s a double-edged sword.
Anywho, back to the reason I’ve been gone…the reason I’ve been gone…Ahh, yes, the reason I’ve been gone! You see, my fellow internet-surfing folks, I have one flaw (alright, maybe a few more than that, but only one that’s relevant to this post): my college priority list involves 1) Homework 2) Work 3) Social life 4) Internet procrastination 5) All other productive activities I should probably be doing instead of wasting time on Facebook.
And that’s just it, I’m addicted to social media and I can’t stop. I was very busy this semester, and between an internship, a job, and school, I just didn’t find–or rather, should I say make the time–to keep up on this whole blog-thing. I’m sorry guys, my bad.
No, seriously, I’m sorry. Seriously.
Actually, I’ve really been looking forward to starting this up again. I have some really great ideas for posts and I can’t wait to share them with you in the upcoming weeks and months. And, I think keeping this up over the summer will be great practice for accountability next fall. I’m working on my social media addiction. I’m going to see if I can ween myself off of it without actually deleting my Facebook profile (I have a lot of long-distance friends, okay!). Maybe I’ll update you on the progress of that as well.
So, the moral of the story is: 1) I’m sorry I’ve neglected my posts 2) Updates every week this summer! (A specific day of the week may be solidified later on) 3) Don’t procrastinate awesome things by scrolling through your Facebook newsfeed. It’s just–just, no. Just don’t. Okay? Cool.
