I'm Baaaaack!

It’s the first work day of January, and I’m on a little eight day vacation from my “real” job. I’m back behind the keyboard for the first time in a while, and I missed it. I took some time off from writing because of Christmas and surrounding madness that embraces my life in the second half of December every year, but I’m sitting here in my familiar chair typing away again and I couldn’t be happier.

It looks so pitiful....
The first order of after Christmas business was to completely revamp my workstation. This is what I started with. All of my blogs up until this one were written on this old, worn out, hand me down desk.

Thew and I spent all day Sunday assembling this monster.
This is my new baby, and I couldn’t be more thrilled with it. It’s given me the desire to write more and the organization to be able to do it with a clear mind instead of focusing on the surrounding clutter. 

We enjoyed our Christmas as much as we could even though, at some point, we’ve all been fighting being sick. It was really great to be able to spend time with our families and I seemed to get into the Christmas spirit a bit, albeit a little late.

I’ve decided that since it’s a new year, I’m going to change up my blogging habits a bit. I’m going to strictly adhere to a three blogs a week schedule; posting a new one Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. If I have more to say, I’ll blog more, but five and six blogs a week is taking away the time and ability to write something in addition to The Madness Spiral. If I’m going to make something of myself, I’m going to have to prioritize a bit smarter. I need to take more time to work on other projects, but I am certainly not abandoning this blog. I’ve had so much positive feedback from family and friends and from people I barely know and I appreciate all of it tremendously, so worry not, I will keep this site updated and current. It was nice to take some time off to get refocused, but I’m back and I’m going to start this new year off like a champion. 

It’s time to let the rubber hit the road. If you like this blog, leave me a comment, follow me, or recommend me to your friends. Your feedback makes this worthwhile, and any success I have will be in part attributed to the core readers of this silly blog.


  1. nice desk. where'd you get it?

  2. I really like your new desk. Ryan got a new desk recently too. Just between us (and the other blog readers), I like yours better. But I suppose it's apples and oranges. His is set up for spending an obscene amount of time playing World of Warcraft - not actually doing something productive.



  3. I read, therefore I like.
    Blog away!
