So, this is the beginning. I’ve had this WordPress blog for some time now (actually about four months), but haven’t had the motivation to post in it. And whilst I’d like to blame work, illness, and other mental preoccupations for that, I know deep down that it’s more because I’ve been too lazy to just get on with it. Anyway, here I am.

It has been at least three years since I have blogged on any website and at least ten months since I have written in my diary, meaning the last time I blogged I was a pessimistic, angst-ridden teenager, and the last time I wrote in my diary I was truly happy. Now, after all this time, I find myself somewhere between these two extremes, neither as down in the dumps nor as blissfully elated as I was before. To borrow a lyric from Pink Floyd, I am comfortably numb.

But I’m not sure if I want this blog to be just a daily rant about how I’m feeling. Actually, I don’t know what I want it to be. When I was creating it, my mind was set on writing something worldly, cultured, and…intelligent. Seeing as the whole thing has been on the shelf for several months, though, I’m now not sure about that, either. I guess this means nothing, then, and that I don’t really know what this blog is about. I’m not sure I’m even making sense any more.

So. This is the beginning. Let’s see where we go from here.
