the reports of my death are greatly exaggerated

This is not the final post. I'm still here, and still plugging away. My time has been dominated by work and personal engagements. What little free time I have is spent decompressing via my various pastimes. I am still researching wordpress versus blogger, but I'm nowhere near making a decision. Well, that I have yet to come up with a name for the new blog still. I have enlisted some help from a coworker who's also a blogger as well as a writer. Hi Katie! I digress.

I'm shooting for a launch date of mid to late September. I know. I really need to get off my ass and get this going as I've got about four months of material to catch you guys up on. I'll get there!


almost terminus

It's been a while. I've had a lot happen since my last post. I'll start off with the girl is no more. What started off nicely turned into a drawn out version of the last twenty minutes of the movie Braveheart. I finally realized that she only brought out the worst in me as well as her having no redeeming qualities. Nothing good would come of this had I tried to maintain anything with her. I did the only logical thing left. I asked that she never speak to me again. Unfortunately she said "would try". This was unacceptable so I went the length of blocking her from being able to call or text me. It's times like this where I'm truly grateful for modern technology. Good riddance!

Not everything between posts has been bad. I've been visited by friends and family in that time. It was a real treat for me to get to show them around this gorgeous area and around the sanctuary where I work at. Matter of fact, even more family is due to visit me in the coming week. I've got a ton of pictures and writing to do, but will be holding off just a little bit longer.

With all the changes that've taken place in my life this past year I felt it was now the blog's turn. I'm currently deciding on whether to try out wordpress or remain with blogger. I'm not really interested in customization so much as good reliable functionality. And I also need to come up with a new name. I'm open to suggestions if anyone has any. I'm looking for something a touch less specific than the current one I have. It has to pertain to me but in a more generalized sense. Once I've got all the ducks in a row my final post here will have a link leading to the new blog.
