Indeed it has. Seven months since my last post here. I really can't explain the long hiatus. Call it a serious case of writer's block I guess. Actually, a few of my hobbies have been neglected lately. I don't play my guitars as often as I used to (though I still pick one up now and then), and I haven't taken too many photos recently.
A lot has happened in the last seven months that I could have written about, both good things and bad things, but I never really intended this blog to be one of those daily diary blogs so there's only so much of my personal life I'm willing to share with the Internet.
I can say that my work life has really taken up the majority of my time lately. I think my job's also what's been completely draining the inspiration from my life. I started working for a different company a few months ago and it's been a difficult transition to say the least. While I still take pride in my work, recent events have made me realize that I don't want to do what I'm doing for very much longer.
So it's time for a change, and that's where there's some good news in this post. I'm going to go back to school. I'm interested in an Applied Communications course that could lead to a career in arts and media such as radio, advertising, music production, film, or anything else in that field. I had a part time job years ago at a radio station and I loved it. In fact, I'd say that stands as my favorite job so far in my working life, so why mot persue what makes me happy? This time with proper training.
Nothing's carved in stone yet, and it may be some time before the course begins, but I have been registered to attend an information session next month so we'll see what happens. I'm optimistic.
In the mean time, I'm going to keep doing what I'm doing and make the most of it. I'm also going to make an effort to write more. I forgot how good it feels to write.
