The Story Thus Far

September 29th, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

I’ve been retired now for about a month, and let me tell you, it feels great. I sleep late, I eat well, I’m in better shape than I was a month ago, and I’m generally happier with life than I was before.

All things that I was hoping for in taking a break.

Of course, there have been a few things that I didn’t expect. Like the fact that I haven’t been writing about all of my adventures! I was planning on taking a lot of time to concentrate on my writing, but as it turns out I haven’t done a lick of writing this whole month. So what gives? Well, I think when it comes down to it I haven’t been that interested in writing (at least on the blog front) because I’ve been in a content-generation phase. Blogging, as least for me, is something that I do when I don’t have anything terribly interesting to do, and I’m happy to report that my days have been jam-packed with things to do. (Don’t worry, though… I’ve got plenty of notes. Blog posts are coming, I promise!)

As I start in on the second half of my allotted two months of vacation, however, I’m noticing a subtle shift in my mindset. I’m in the downswing of the trip, and I’m starting to think about what I’m going to do with my remaining vacation time. Funny… it’s actually the same feeling I get when I’m traveling for an extended period: the first half of the trip is liberating because you have all the time in the world on your hands. The second half of the trip you can feel precisely how much time you have left, and you want to do everything possible to maximize that precious time.

So anyway, not to belabor the point, but I predict that I’ll start posting more things in the coming weeks. If I’m really clever I’ll even put together a back-log so that I can make updates at semi-regular intervals.

But we’ll see how that goes. 🙂

Oh, and I’ll start putting up pictures, too. ‘Cause the Internet likes pretty pictures.
