I like to be very public about my life. Not that I feed off the attention or need to validate the things I do by posting them online, but just because I enjoy it. I like sharing my experiences with others, documenting the good times I have to look back on later, and also being part of a larger discussion online about what's fun and new and exiting and happening in our community of web people.
But sometimes, like everyone, I have things going on in my life that are healthier to not talk about. I learned my lesson that summer in London; that being too candid with your problems and your thoughts and feelings and emotions when things are hard or heavy isn't always the best way to deal with yourself when you're down.
It's hard for a vlogger, or a blogger, or a tweeter, or a facebooker - because it can sometimes come down to either pretending or lying in your updates, or not updating at all. Neither of those are fun solutions.
Anyway, that's where I'm at. I have a couple posts I want to do on here about other things, like a Buffy survey I snatched from Becky a few months ago, and my thoughts on the game Tetris - easy things, simple things. But I'm apologizing right now for a lack of updates for a little while.
