Ow. Yum. Argh. Sigh.

The above title is the approximate sound of the inside of my head today. My back hurts from cleaning the house, but we ate some awesome food; also, my mom and stepdad are staying with us for a visit and the house is therefore a bit more action-packed than usual. I did manage to kick back a little over the past few days and play a video game--something completely and entirely and wonderfully unproductive. Sometimes it's difficult to begrudge myself the down time, but I really do need it, as proven by past episodes of hives that won't go away and other such fun stuff.

Anyway, speaking of begrudging, I haven't seemed to be able to justify the blogging time lately (except for the writing blog). It's been a very busy month, and I've been mentally and physically exhausted. A New Year's resolution for me is to do more quality blogging. If quality blogging means that I have to set a regular day and time and stick to it, then so be it. One part of that resolution is to ponder the desired purpose of this blog, and how best to achieve that. Right now, I just post whatever whenever, without much regard for structure/subject matter or potential interest level. And I suspect that the latter could be improved by addressing the former. So, we'll see.

Maybe we like you and want to read what you write? Just a thought....

There's always this part of me that wants to overstructure things. However, I've found that I can seldom fully commit to the wonderfully organized-sounding (if slightly OCD) ideas that I come up with. It turns out that I'm just not quite as methodical, disciplined, or organized in practice.

Sometimes I wonder if going to art school ruined me...

Eek -- that's what's wrong with me: I went to art school too!

If you run out of OCD ideas, just come visit me and I can probably help you find even more... I go along with what DaviMack says, though: write because you know people who like you will want to read what you write!
