|You probably think this post is about you.
I don't write as much as I used to. I usually get home sometime between 6 and 7. I have to make food, which takes about 30-45 minutes (including eating it). I then spend two or three hours reading emails, checking digg, looking at OKCupid, and catching up with a few webcomics. I spend entirely too much time following the campaign. At the end of it all, I don't usually feel very motivated to write something that nobody ever reads.
I also feel guilty. I've been promising for about 2 years now that I was going to upgrade the site. For the last year, I've been saying that I was going to learn JSF by building the site from scratch. I've had several really good ideas (including, as a bare minimum, a way of logging in so that I wouldn't have to manually approve peoples' comments). Friendly tags to sort pictures and articles, a better way for me to add new posts and an easy way to upload new pictures. Every time I log in to the backend, I am reminded that I haven't done any of it yet.
I was in California last week. I was visiting Tina in San Jose for Thanksgiving. Despite what my dad was convinced of, I was notproposing or anything crazy like that. I just wanted to be with friends for the holiday, and she said I could come visit. So I bought a plane ticket and did it. And I kept saying that I was going to post something about it, and I just kept putting it off for another day, until it became pointless to write about. But then, if that's not worth writing about (it being a rather huge event in my life), then what really is worth writing about?
Anyway, I'm alive. And I still plan on creating a new version of the site. Maybe I'll cut my digg reading. Maybe I'll stop checking OKCupid (it's not like it actually helps me find girls anyway). Maybe I'll stop chatting with people online. Maybe I'll just stop sleeping. But somehow, I'll get this project rolling.
