It’s the end of the year and I am tired.
2014 was a challenging year. There were a lot of ups, don’t get me wrong, and I made some fantastic memories. But boy, am I eager to see it go. I actually wrote up a big post analyzing my year, explaining everything that happened and whatnot. But I don’t think I’m going to post it. I feel like I should be putting more effort into the whole blogging thing. I feel like I should engage more, follow more blogs, immerse myself in the splendor that is WordPress. I want to. But lately, whenever I think about sitting down to write a simple post… all I can think of is how tired I am.
The words are there. There are so many things I can say right now. But I’m not sure if I want to talk. I’ve got a long road ahead of me and there are a number of stories to tell. Right now, though, I don’t know if I want to let people in. I just want to hole up in myself and be.
It’s been quiet here on my blog since Christmas. It’ll be a quiet New Years–I’m going to Wisconsin for a few days to celebrate Christmas with extended family and won’t have internet access. It may be quiet for a while. I’ll come back, don’t worry. At this point, blogging is in my blood. I’ve been doing it since I was fifteen and know I won’t be able to stop. But, for now, my stories need to be mine for a while.
In light of all of this, I just want to let you know (yes, YOU reading these words) how much you mean to me. I haven’t engaged with you as well as I should, but know that wherever you are, I am thankful for you. Thank you for taking time to read my blog, and I look forward to getting to know you better as 2015 comes around.
Happy New Year, friends! Let’s make this next one the best yet.
