dear little blog of mine

i've been thinking of you often.

my absence has definitely proved that i am currently
a shitty blogger {not that i was ever really that good at this}
and that my priorities are not on the creative side {sigh}.

i'm trying to break the routine of

reading a novel for school
reading the bible for school
reading multiple books on the bible for school
occasionally reading a leisure book on a seemingly promiscuous piano teacher
reading an article or two a week for a bible/discipleship class
reading literature pertaining to greek mythology and plato and {wait for it} lysistrata...eek!
reading on the psychology and theology of marriage and family
reading essays in the writing center because i now volunteer there {yay!!!}
reading directions for essays that have to do with reading about all of the above
{with the exception of the seemingly promiscuous piano teacher}

and then ATTEMPTING to write little thoughts here and there so
that my creative-writer-satisfaction can briefly be met.

now, do you see the dilemma?
if i wasn't going to school for reading and writing
i would probably just quit so that i could do more/other reading and writing,
but because almost all i do is reading and writing,
i often times want to quit.

and so the cycle of wonderful, excruciating abuse continues.
at least papers are electronic so there's not so many paper cuts,
and at least books can't hit you back after you slam them shut out
of frustration time and time again.

besides all that, my life is blissfully and simply good.
all that is missing is the book sale in SF this weekend.

oh, my heart.
