I've been so long that now that I really want to say something, I have no clue what to say. I desperately want to begin writing entry after entry again, because without this extension of who I am I've been feeling strangely disconnected. I guess I'm just out of practice. I used to talk about every little thing and make these strange, profound entries out of absolutely nothing when the need struck me. But then again, I don't want to be tied down to the computer like I was before, but I've been so alienated that it seems just as bad, so I've missed it.
I have so much to say that I have no clue how to begin saying it, because there's too much to think about at once. It's funny how that works. Either way, I've needed the disconnection and things are now great. I've needed to adjust to this place and these new people and this new life of mine. Now that I pretty much have, it's time to reach out again for my old life and get those handholds back.

I'll start slowly. I've been missing this. This entry's a beginning, at least.

Start out with simple entries.

Here's a good formula.

"Today at work was interesting/amusing/horrible/boring. There was this customer who ____________________. Then I came home, and me and Ari _____________. I love him so much."

That's it. Fill in the blanks. Post this 2-5 times a week. Mix it up a bit, duh.

But you must have customers worth talking/ranting about at least twice a week. Jami makes customer posts all the time :)

It may not be much. It may be boring. But it's a habit. And that habit gives you the impetus to add anything else that's interesting you have to say. Just tack it on the end whenever it strikes you. Profound thoughts, plans for the weekend, comments on what you had for dinner, whatever.

These entries give us a little glimpse into your life, and a way to reach back out to you. That's all it takes.

Thank you hun, that's actually a really good idea! Though I'll add that you know me a bit too well for your own good.
He knows too much! He mustn't live to tell the tale!! (j/k...really j/k.)

("Today at work was nonexistant. There was this customer who there were no customers because today was my day off. Then I came home, and me and Ari snogged. I love him so(...oooooo) much.")

I've missed you too...when I have lots to say I usually forget stuff too...to remember you can write your ideas on a piece of paper as they come so you won't forget anything

Thank you, I missed you too. And strangely enough, I did write my ideas down over the weeks. The only bad part is that so many of them have now become obsolete. But tomorrow I'll make a conscious effort to write down more recent ones as they come to me.
