sappiness

In every blogger's time, a little rain must fall. Oh wait, no song lyrics. Let me try again.

In every blogger's time, the glorious day will come when she discovers her readers care. Or at least are bored with everything else and think you might have something interesting to say. It may come sooner for some, but most must toil for many weeks/months/years before the blessed event occurs. Today was my day. JAdam told me to 'get on it' and produce new blog postings. Twas a touching moment for us both. ;) And so, I present: my thoughts of late.

Change is inevitable. I'm not one for stagnation; routine eventually bores me, and I start to go out of my way to look for ways to spice things up. And now, I've put the wheels into motion for a particularly large change*. It's pretty much the only thing I can think about these days, and probably much to the dismay of my friends, the only thing I can talk about. I can't help but wonder if I've done the right thing to take this step, if the timing is right, and if I won't be happier leaving everything the way it is right now.

On the flip side, I'm looking forward to the newness of it all. The beginnings of things are always such an exciting time. You don't know what to expect, and no matter how much you think you've prepared, something hits you and you think, "wow, never would have seen that coming."

All in all, I'd say I've been having very cheesy thoughts, involving the words 'chapter' and 'era.' Hence the hiatus from the blog this month. But perhaps I can be proven wrong, perhaps this stuff can be interesting as well. And if it's not to you, well, I promise I'll return to my normal snarky media-nitpicking self soon enough.

*Disclaimer: If you know the change of which I speak, please do not post comments about it, I'd rather not talk directly about it in this space just yet.

Hugs, dear! No, I don't know about the particular change of which you speak, but I can relate to your thoughts and feelings on change itself. I'm pretty much the same way. This is a very well-written post. And oh yeah... I, for one, do care. ;)

And, can I quote you on this? "I've been having very cheesy thoughts, involving the words 'chapter' and 'era.'" ;)

will you still post when you take yourself on this new path? these are things your readers must brace themselves for.

Do you actually have an answer for the question: "where do you see yourself in 5 years?" i never did.

Thanks for the love folks. Amber, honey, feel free to quote away. ;) peekay, I will indeed continue to post, never fear about that. There's something very fun about seeing your words out for all to see.

Hey, change is a big deal. I've taken TWO classes on it for my graduate studies, and I'm still impressed with how complex (yet normal) it is. And if you give me a moment to sound like a greeting card, I know that with this change you'll only be the better for it, even though you don't know what it will bring. As Jenny and I would say, "I believe in you, Peter... You are the Pan..."
