The trajectory of my blogging activity went from unenthusiastic to senile.
In the last few weeks, there’s been a spike in electronic communications with my high-school friends. We go through these periods once in a while, when we realize that the last time we had any meaningful exchange was months ago. While we mostly spend time to catch up with each other’s lives, we obviously cannot avoid reminiscing a bit.
As I was so reminiscing, I started to type up a memoir of my high-school years to post to the blog. It was coming out pretty well, slowly but steady as always, but 500 or so words into writing it, I started to get a clear sense of déjà-vu, as if I already wrote all of that in the past. Because, of course, I did. The new post that I was writing re-hashed the same topics that I already covered in this post of a year and a half ago.
The good news here is that when I latch onto a topic I feel interesting, I am still able to focus on writing something.
The bad news, of course, is that I seemingly return to a very little range of topics all the time. And I still got nothing to post, after all those efforts. Yay, me…
