Digging deep within the abyss that is my hard drive, I stumbled upon a file named “Blog.txt” earlier this week. A file I had completely forgotten. 40 pages of 11 pt text that essentially summarizes my life from 2003-2008. Migrated across multiple versions of my very first HTML site I built and eventually gave up on. Scrolling all the way to the bottom I see my very first entry.
“Today I started my blog. I’m sure a lot of you have no idea what a blog is so I’ll tell you now. A blog is a place where I post what is going on with me and my server and stuff like that. I might tell you what I ate at different times of the days, If my server is all messed up and I have no idea what I’m gonna do, and whatever I may have on my mind. Well this is it.“
Dated June 13th, 2003 – I was 12 years old at the time. It hit me as I was reading through the various entries just how much I’ve changed these past 9 years. At the same time it made me really miss writing for fun. Since getting into college it seems like all of my time is spent shooting off “buisnessy” emails, writing papers about topics I’m not particularly interested in, and trying to finish my thesis.
I think it’s time to get back into creative writing. Writing about the things I’m passionate about.
Well this is it.
