bye for awhile

I am going to be computer-less for two weeks. Hopefully by the time I come back, I will have shaken my aversion to writing, or will have found other things to write about. I'm keeping a travel journal, though, which I'll scan in later and probably post selections from.

There is a sticky note that I left myself, to read when I come back home. It reads,

You are not the person you used to be.


I have lost the will to blog

...and I am considering deleting nearly every music blog from my Google reader. Really, what is the point anymore? I am so tired of reading blogs that have endless lists of random facts about bands I do not care about, have never heard of, and, subsequently, do not want to hear about again.

It may be summer, but I have never been generally prolific. At the same time, all I really want to do is look at design blogs all day, so maybe a shift in theme is in the works. It just doesn't seem right to hold onto something that is such a symptom of who I used to be when my persona is not nearly as self-centered or self-reflexive as it once was. I've learned from all of my other mistakes, so it might be time to let go of this whole public airing of grievances and qualms about many things that ultimately do not matter.
