I feel like this blog has been neglected in the sense I’ve only been going from short story to short story with less of my typical commentary, which sort of detracts from my overall misadventures in fiction being posted. And that defeats the real purpose of this blog/web site/whatever, which is to broadcast my rampant narcissism across the internet. Obviously.
So I’m still adjusting to my very-first full-time job at a place I won’t refer to by name so as to not, you know, get in trouble. I’ll be honest, though; I love it. It keeps me busy, and it’s a lot to get used to, but I’m already very happy with the way things are run. I also have an amazing boss (who has an amazing boss as well, who I have talked to on a few occasions). However, getting used to forty hour weeks after working sixteen hours one week, thirty-some another, and so on, is a bit taxing. By a bit I mean a lot.
On top of all of this, I have lots going on that I’m not quite willing to reveal yet as it’s all still very much in the works. Things I can say, at least: I’ve started keeping notes in my Hobbit Moleskine about my (Un)expected Journeys, and whether or not that ends up manifesting as Misadventures in Nonfiction or something will remain to be seen. I also am now the proud owner of a Hyundai Sonata, courtesy of my parents’ tremendous generosity. It also means more responsibility, which is something I was unaware I had so we’ll see how that goes.
I should like to point out I’m not dead, homeless, in some really horrible state, or anything like the previous, so I’m doing pretty damn well, all things considered. I say that ignoring the way I worry myself to the point of health problems, of course, and those are all things I will never likely post about in great detail on here because reasons.
Lastly, I wish you all a happy Memorial Day, and offer up some serious digital high-fives and salutes for everyone who has ever fought on behalf of the US (or any other country, or for any cause no matter how big or small it may be perceived for that matter). To see people exhibit such courage in any situation still renews what faith I have in the human condition, and that’s a hell of a feat in itself.
