Then was, and now am not.
Gets a little tiring after a while, but oh well.
There was something I was going to talk about, a bit of a follow-through on yesterday, but ultimately, I felt like it was too much of a rehash. Most of the newer material I forgot, while remembering the older material which was already there thanks to yesterday. What I did do, though, is make a blog on my professional blog which was, essentially, a professional, non-crazy version of what I said yesterday, and that was something which I had wanted to do since Wednesday, meaning it predated my blog post on here, even.
Other than that, not much, though in a recent blog post, I did mention something offhandedly that I feel could be worth more attention. For all of October, it completely slipped my mind (hey, to be fair, I had a lot on my plate), but...October 23rd or so, 2014 was when I started my blog.
Meaning, that same day on 2016 represented my two-year anniversary of (almost) daily blogging. Between the days I accidentally miss, and the days where I double or even triple posted (if not more), that puts things at...well, at least 730 entries, probably closer to 800 posts by me. I'd count, but as far as I know there's no way to do that except for manually.
Who'da thought? me, the poster child for starting ambitious projects and then abandoning them midway through, managing to keep a blog running for a full two years! That's no small victory on my end. That's a huge milestone of commitment on my part.
I said I wanted to do a daily blog, but I was expecting it to fail like so many of my efforts before. All Too Human, my current blog, what you are reading now was certainly not my first attempt at thought recording. It wasn't even my first attempt at daily recording, either! Some time, I should track down my various notebooks I've held throughout the years which would have entries on a daily basis, giving an insight into my life at critical times.
I had one in my earlier college days, pre-blog here. I had one in my high school days. Maybe two. Maybe even three! I may have had one in my middle school days as well. The point I'm making is...when I started this blog, I wasn't expecting it to be anything better than what I had done before: maintained for a short while, before inevitably, failing some point down the line.
And, hey. Who knows. I could always cease blogging at some indeterminable point in the future. This blog has no set end date. Rather the opposite, it's meant to keep going as long as humanly possible. But the fact remains, while keeping this going for this long was my objective...I never thought I'd actually make it there!
So I'm ever hopeful for what the future has in store for me. I am capable of doing much.
