I’ve been thinking…

I know it has been a while, and I feel like I have some explaining to do.  I can’t believe I haven’t written in this blog in almost an entire year, but I blinked my eyes, and a year had passed.  There are a few reasons why I haven’t been blogging.  For starters, I spend the majority of my work day writing.  I honestly enjoy the writing that I do at work, but it tends to leave me mentally drained, and the last thing I want to do when I’m not at work is sit in front of a computer.  Speaking of computers at home, my laptop died a while back, and I haven’t bothered to get a new one, because my iphone is sufficient for a certain degree of connection, and as stating, I have little desire to sit in front of a computer after work.  Another reason – my work computer is rather ancient, and the wordpress website crashes the browser.  The last, most glaring, underlying problem is that I love to read, and I would rather read than write as a general rule.  

All of these factors crept up on me, and I got lazy, and I’ve neglected the blog.  The blog does not deserve this neglect, and some things have changed, and I would also like to change.  First, I have finally replaced my poor comatose laptop from law school with a laptop from this decade.  Second, I have been at my job for two full years, and I now will be working from home two days a week.  Having a laptop that works, and the time saved from working from home, and the ability to blog at lunch, should help me find more time to blog.  Because I miss documenting my thoughts and having a creative outlet.  I mean, I have a LOT to say.  


So let’s get back to something interesting, I’m tired of my excuses, I’m sure y’all are too.  

In the past year, I’ve developed affinity for a few things: yoga, the hairpin, trader joes, my iphone, and online shopping.  Maybe that last one isn’t new. 

Monday night, I was playing tennis with some friends in downtown Charleston, and there was an almost full moon rising over the skyline, behind the palmetto trees on the bank of colonial lakes.  It was huge, a bright squash yellow, with a wisp of a cloud.  In the distance, someone was practicing a brass instrument, maybe a bugle or a trumpet.  Taps was barely discernible, followed by a few scales, and then jazz music for the rest of our match.  It made me appreciate why people travel to Charleston in such droves, and if you’ve never been here, you should visit.  Briscoe and I would love to see you.  

Football has been highly stressful and immensely enjoyable so far this season.  Saturday, my Dawgs are going to Columbia to play South Carolina.  I’m nervous, and excited, and strung out. 

I hope y’all haven’t all forgotten about me, I’m going to make it up to you.  And if you haven’t tried the ice cream made out of coconut milk from trader joes, I encourage you to rush over to TJ as soon as it opens in the morning and try some.  It is literally the greatest thing I’ve ever tasted, and it will greatly improve your quality of life.
