"Years ago, I was an angry young man"
It isn't that I've given up on blogging it's just that I don't know what to write about anymore. I am so paranoid that I am going to offend someone that I find a reason not to blog about anything that comes to mind lately. And to be honest, I'm a little bitter about those 200 lost posts. I mean this was supposed to be my outlet, a way to get things off my mind whether because they were funny or because they were annoying or... And I know that I said I had changed my mission statement but I'm not feeling great about that either. I mean as absolutely awful as this may sound, I liked venting. My sister said it best the other day, I have an abrasive personality that comes out best through my blog. I wasn't offended, well at least not overly offended, that she said I could be abrasive. I mean, I like to think of myself as compassionate and caring but I guess I need to be honest with myself. Would a caring, compassionate person talk about other people on thier personal blog? Well, you see I've been thinking about this and I've decided that yes. Venting here allows me to be caring and compassionate later. I'm being totally serious. I mean sometimes if I don't vent, I think I may just harm someone or myself. I think that my funk here lately is the result of having nowhere to vent. So anyways, I'm not saying that I'm completely back to my old ways, but if I ever hope to be back, I need to tweak the mission statement. I hope you understand.
