What the Future Holds

I’ve become a busy person. When I first started this blog in 2004, I think it was to fill something that was missing. I was unhappy and living in Vermont and my blog was an outlet. I say this with complete honesty and no sarcasm whatsoever:  I think I would have fallen into a deep depression had I not had my blog during those dark times. I’m sorry if that sounds dramatic, but it doesn’t make it any less true.

I have since found other ways to round out my life. I’m still going to school (I’m beginning to wonder if I’ll ever be done with that.), the hubs and I make time to go out alone, and I have my own business. The only thing I can think of to make my life any healthier would be to start interacting with people face to face more. I have real life friends, but I never see them. We text, Twitter, Facebook, and read each other’s blogs. I also have several clients and lots of people that I work with almost on a daily basis. Again, we text, Twitter, Facebook, and talk over the phone. I’ve only met ONE person that I work with/for in person. I took one of those online evaluation things that said I probably have social anxiety and should seek help, lol. I’m actually going to do that because I think I do have social anxiety which is why I’m content to deal with people virtually rather than in person. That’s a whole other topic though.

Anyway, I suppose this is why my blog has been sadly neglected. I’ve even considered calling it quits but I don’t think it’s necessary to be so extreme. Who would’ve guessed that real life would take over my online life? Raising a teenager and a child with ADHD is a job in and of itself. Throw in trying to get my undergraduate and ramping up my online business manager business, and I have a little bit of chaos in each day of my life. I like it though. Other than my daily fight/argument with my teen, it’s a positive chaos. Oh. And base housing still sucks. But whatcha gonna do?

And  hey! I still find time to read.


  1. I know what you mean. When I started my blog it was more of an outlet to vent about grad school. It has turne into something much different than it was in the beginning. I don't blog much either anymore since I hooked up with FB. Besides, I think the desire just isn't there anymore or perhaps I don't feel like I need it anymore. Does that make sense? Although, it's nice to go back and look and stuff I've written and see pictures.

  2. Exactly Pam. I'm also trying to be more consistent about posting articles on my business blog. I'm spread very thin between this blog, that blog, FB, and Twitter. No matter what, I'll never take this blog down and will keep posting stuff here and there. I don't think I could ever give it completely up. I'd be too sad, lol.

  3. I don't hink it is dramatic to say a blog helped you with depression! I have had long bouts of winter blues and other blues since emigrating and blogging has definitely helped! Just being able to look back on what I have done has been incredibly therapeutic.

    Nevertheless, it is always good when life gets in the way of blogging - that is a Good Thing!

  4. Thanks Emm. It really is nice to realize that daily life has become fulfilling enough to get in the way of blogging, lol. It's a positive way to look at it.
