I'll admit it's been a while since I've been on Blogger. And it's hard to believe I've been blogging here (off and on) for nearly eight years now! I feel kinda old. But I'm also sad to see that so many of my blogging friends have gone the same way as me and haven't been on for a while. I thought at one point that I would catch up on my Word of the Day blog, at least, but life seems to get in the way of that sort of thing sometimes. I'm not as funny as I once was. Maybe this is because I am actually happy right now, and during my college years when this blog was thriving, I wasn't at my happiest; I think I used humor and entertaining stories to keep my sanity. Maybe I'll be able to get back in the groove. Who knows. This is kind of a stream of consciousness entry, if you haven't guessed already. Since I teach English now, I find myself reading and writing less. I mean, it's my job now, so it's difficult to want to do it for fun. Kind of makes me think if one were a prostitute and getting paid for it would make it less fun. Which (WARNING: meta observation coming up) my blog was named after: Writing is like... prostitution. Totally unaware of that connotation as I was writing it. As I said, this is just a stream of consciousness thing. I never realized my stream of consciousness was so... coherent. It's much more organized than my supposedly organized thoughts. Gonna go have some wedding cake now. I'd like to say I'll get back in the habit of this, but I also thought I'd finish Skyrim and play through Inferno difficulty on Diablo 3, so instead I'll see you next year so I at least get one entry per year in this blog. Peace.
