Penance

It's been a long time. It's been like half a year. I haven't been writing. I'm going to say I've been writing a thesis, but that is not an excuse at all.

Honestly, I've missed this forum of writing- it's where I feel most comfortable, it's where I like to share details of my life, my thinking, my art. A friend of mine danced up to me at a party last night, a friend with whom I was very close way back when in Freshman year, and she said she used to have the blog bookmarked. But then I stopped. And then she deleted it.

Why did I stop is really the question I should be asking... This blog became so much of a routine while in Italy, a daily IV-drip that made me feel satisfied with life, a healthy dose of self-reflection. Then, when I changed my location, I changed my routine, I had a language I could rely on, friends that were scattered about, and familiar surroundings. So I stopped writing, I stopped sharing...

I'm sorry.

I will write more often. And this will be my penance.

The weirdest part of turning in your thesis, I found, is the postpartum depression that sets in soon after.

Studies show that bloggers bounce back quicker. :)
