The Glossographer: The Gloss Awakens
A long time ago, on a site (not so) far away …
A girl started a blog. And then that girl kind of suddenly stopped posting on that blog. For, like, a whole year, pretty much.
And that girl, dear readers (if any of you are still with me), that girl was me.
I know it’s been a while, so if you are reading this, I want you to know that I am not dead and I have not abandoned this blog! If you’ve stayed with thus far, brava! I appreciate your undying loyalty!
I’ve had a lot going on this past year or so that needed to be sorted out and just...trudged through. I had some bouts with mental health, I’ve grown unhappy at my stuffy office job, I’ve been so lonely in my post-grad life, and I’ve been trying (and only partially succeeding) to figure out what I want to do with the rest of my life that will allow me to be a content and fulfilled human.
I know, it’s a lot. Some real heavy hitters. You can see why I haven’t really had the energy or brain space to churn out even sparse, irregular posts.
I don’t want you all to think that I’ve descended into any sort of pit of despair, though. There have been some truly wonderful bright spots in the past year too. I got to see and reconnect with family from abroad whom I haven’t seen in 10 years, I worked up the courage to quit my office job, I’ve made plans to move into an apartment with friends, I’ve rekindled friendships that had grown stagnant since high school and maintained long-distance friendships with my closest college friends, and I’ve been rediscovering free time and how to use it (I’ve read soooooo many books for fun!).
It’s been a quite a year, and as much as I would’ve liked, I just wasn’t able to bring you all along as passengers. From now on, though, friends, you’ve always got a seat in the sidecar. I’m back in business! And what a business it’s going to be! There are a lot of things coming your way, the first of which, is the fact that this site is getting a design overhaul! Be on the lookout for the new look, as well as new regular posts and segments, more video diaries (including some retrospectives on the time that we were apart), and some exciting enterprises that I’ve got cooking!
I’m so so looking forward to resetting and reconnecting with all of you, whoever you are! Definitely comment below about literally anything -- we have so much to catch up on! (Except you internet bots, please and thank you!)
See you all soon (I mean it!).
Love, the Glossographer.
