Time for some change

It’s def­i­nite­ly been a long time since I’ve actu­al­ly updat­ed my blog. Hon­est­ly, I had a good rea­son why not to — no focus.

No focus in the sense that this blog real­ly didn’t have any real goal or pur­pose. It start­ed off as a cool thing to do (all the cool kids are doing it), then a per­son­al soap box and final­ly a bit of news report­ing. To be frank, I failed at all of those. Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not call­ing myself a fail­ure in a self-dep­re­cat­ing way. I mean in the best, post-mortem way. To real­ize the err of one’s way is the first step to recov­ery and pre­ven­tion.

So let’s con­sid­er this a first step in that recov­ery.

At the behest of one of my biggest sup­port­ers (Mom, of course), I will use my first post as a guide­line for the future of this blog. Addi­tion­al­ly, since I find myself usu­al­ly at a loss when asked to give a sto­ry about my life, I will try to present my diary-like log entries in some sort of prose-like for­mat. To not pigeon­hole myself, to allow my cre­ative juices to flow and respect oth­er cre­atives, I will attempt to use a dif­fer­ent style of writ­ing for each post — short sto­ry, poet­ry, haiku, quo­ta­tion.

I’ll also try to be less sopho­moric. It’ll be hard (that’s what she said) but I must try. My cur­rent age is not what is dic­tat­ing the change (32) but instead my desire to real­ly be tak­en more seri­ous­ly… by myself.

Wel­come to my new. Say hel­lo to Hand Sig­nal Before Turn­ing.
