Signs of life

Ya, it’s been a while since adding content to this site, I know. It’s on the todo list.

While helping my lovely wife and my grandfather-in-law get their blogs online, I realised I’ve mostly neglected mine. It’s not because I don’t love you, sweet internets, but because I’ve found that the free time I once had for ranting online has almost vanished. It’s honours project time, my final year of uni, my victory lap. Although I don’t have exams, it feels like I’m being tested every day. It feels like it’s no longer fun whimsical nonsense, at uni and at work. And as much as I thought it never would, I want it to be over quickly.

I gave up writing for Nexus; not because I didn’t enjoy it, but because I felt my writing was getting to the stage of interestingness. Throughout all the articles of The Nerdery, you’ll notice a certain “shit, gotta get this done before Monday” feel to them. They were forced. And then, something happened at the start of the year; I felt like I had something to say. I felt like I had to educate the masses. Unfortunately, this came at a time where the new editor felt that Nexus had evolved too much over Josh’s tenure, and decided to take it back a notch. I felt like I no longer belonged.

It’s the sort of feeling I’m starting to find from places where I thought I had permanent membership.

Anywho, that’s enough emo for one night.
