I’m such a flake. I haven’t been around at all. My reader has a backlog of 3000+ posts to go through, my poor PR reps are wondering where I’m at, and I haven’t been on Twitter for ages!
But it was all for a good reason, I swear!
Most of my longtime readers know that since about April I’ve been having a seriously rough go of life. I lost my two beloved pets, I almost lost my job, I fell into severe depression and had to take medical leave from work until I found a new job.
I finally DID get that new job and I started just after Canadian Thanksgiving in October. I’ve been here about 2 months and so far it’s been great. It’s a huge change from the places I’ve been at before and has therefore had a major learning curve. There’s a lot about media that I DO know, but there’s a lot that I still have to learn, and boy—am I learning it!
Handling a new job that is so brain-intensive is one thing, but I am also doing two online college courses in my Entrepreneurship program. I forgot what it was like to be in school again and the stupid deadlines! Managing my time has been a bit of a trial, that’s for sure.
I’ve been taking an Intro to Canadian Business class, and also Accounting 101. Unfortunately with the amount of time I’m spending on my job and everything, I’ve had to fail out of the accounting class. I’m not really proud of it, but I’m not worried, either. It was pretty much self-taught so I will just go through the textbook at my own pace.
So that’s where I’m at right now.
Ever since I started working again I’ve been pretty busy and haven’t really felt like writing about it. I get that common feeling bloggers get though…oh this would make a great post! But then I don’t really do anything about it which is a shame.
Now that I’m in a better place and starting to find my rhythm, I want to work on the blog some more. It needs a new layout, some branding and an overall fresh new look. I want to take more and better photos of stuff (because everyone is a voyeur!) and include more about the events that I go to with blogging.
So that’s a quick recap of what has been going on lately. I’m not going to make any kind of promises like I have in the past, and hopefully that will be liberating enough to keep me writing!
