Yeah, so about my lack of steady attention to the site lately.
I know that in the past I've had to occasionally make excuses for not keeping the content flowing around here, but the current situation is something entirely new for me. First of all, my move out to the other side of the country means that I'm not really getting started on anything until around 10:30AM on the East Coast so I'm automatically behind in the morning. Add to that a pretty nice new wrinkle: I'm actually living my life these days. I'm working long hours, yes, but when I'm not doing that I go out, I do dinners and drinks, I exercise, I hang out with friends and, as anyone who's paid the slightest bit of attention to my Facebook timeline recently can probably figure out, I've actually started kind of seeing someone. In other words, I'm doing things that make me happy -- occasionally just content, sometimes deliriously over-the-moon, but generally happy.
Now I just have to figure out a way to make sure the upkeep of DXM -- which has been like a home to me during the long period in which I felt like I had no home -- isn't something I neglect.
It's gonna take a little time, but I promise we'll get back on track soon. I'm eager to really start writing again.
Until then, though, it's nice to be able to say that your humble narrator is finally living a little.
Don't worry, I'm still a smart-mouthed son-of-a-bitch -- but at least I'm a more agreeable one.
