First of all, how the hell does COVID time fly by so quickly? I could swear I wrote what I thought was the last post ever here maybe two or three months ago…I now notice it was back in January. Yikes. Or maybe yay is the correct sentiment when it comes to leaving the darkest months (years) of pandemic anxiety, isolation and just all-around shitty-ness well behind us? I mean, not like our current collective reality is exactly great times or anything, but…whatever, I’ll take it over this time last year, and certainly the year before that one.
Weirdly, I randomly picked today as THE day I would just break the seal of overthinking the hell out of whether or not I should start blogging again and just do it already…only to realize that I already wrote pretty much what I’d write today, last year today (sorry–grammar, but nobody but my mom is likely to read this anyway so yolo. So yeah, I can either leave it at just hi again if anyone stumbles on this post or spend the next hour going down the TMI rabbit hole. I guess I’ll save the TMI for another time…or maybe I’ll just skip that part and dust off one of the dozens of draft posts I’ve half-written or finally write one of the other dozens of things I’ve wanted to write about for ages now but for whatever reason decided not to bother. But I need to bother because I need to break out of the isolation bubble I’ve sealed myself in, one way or another, so may as well start here.
Not to mention that I have read and watched and listened to ALL THE THINGS these past few years, so if you’re like me and prefer to read recommendations rather than watch YouTube or TikTok or whatever, stay tuned.
Anyway–hi mom 👋
