Here there be monsters


A few people seem to have noticed that I stopped posting in this blog. It's been about 3 month since I updated. This has not been by design. I haven't felt like updating. It's been part of my disengaging myself from the Internet thing. I was spending unhealthy amounts of time online, and I didn't want that anymore.

I'd like to say that I've still been reading your journals, but I haven't. I guess it was similar to how alcoholics need to stay away from bars. I've checked in every now and then, and of course I've missed you guys, but I haven't been following. Here's hoping I missed a lot of wonderful news, exciting developments, and tales of raunchy sex with inappropriate partners.

What have I been up to? Reading. Watching movies. Lots and lots of walking. I bought a High Def TV, and learned that crap in 1080i is just 1080 lines of crap. I've detoxed from caffeine no less than 3 times. The last 6 weeks I've been working for the sort of TV show I would never think to watch. I've learned a good deal about production. I'm probably going to apply to grad school in psych or something in November.

There are of course lots of stories and weird events and triumphs and failures I could talk about, but I'm not going to, at least not right now.

I might start blogging again, but probably not in this forum. The thing about Livejournal is that it's a community, and online communities are dangerous for me. They suck me in and eat time I should be spending in the larger world. The Internet is a big place, but the world is infinitely bigger, and features a very intuitive interface.

But I'll do a better job of keeping up with you guys, and if any of you might want to communicate with me, well, there's always email.
