I am trying to commit to being a better blogger. To me, this means:
a. Posting more regularly
b. Posting things that don’t suck
Both have been a challenge lately.
There’s something about living on the East Coast I didn’t expect: time suck. I am losing hours and hours of my life in ways I couldn’t anticipate. For example, although my work commute is the same as it was when I lived in Phoenix, it now takes me 45 minutes to get to a social engagement in DC–by Metro. This is mostly because I
a. stubbornly refuse to drive in DC under most circumstances, unless it is a Sunday
b. don’t drive anywhere if I suspect I may have an alcoholic beverage
c. don’t drive if I’ve been fortunate enough to get parking at my apartment building that day
Everything else seems to take longer. Driving to Target/groceries takes longer. Walking the dog takes longer. Getting settled at home after work takes longer. It takes longer to get to the gym and back, longer to work out, and longer to do my dishes and laundry.
I feel mostly like all I do is go to work, do laundry, do dishes. It’s awful!
But, I also watch a lot of television. Right now I’m watching hours of Battlestar Gallactica every night.
(No, this is not an April Fool’s post. Sadly, this is really just my life.)
