Back and Better Than Ever!

I figure after half a year of no posts and almost a full year since I really did anything close to resembling regular posts, you have probably rightly assumed that this is one of the millions of fad blogs that pop up every year and quickly disappear…you might be right.

So believe me, I understand your skepticism when I say that I’m back and I plan on staying, but I have a good reason!

Monday Monday

Here is a random picture that has nothing to do with anything, but wordpress said was relevant to my post. (Photo credit: soonerpa)

You see, it has been a crazy year. I finally got a half-way decent job in the entertainment industry. I made big inroads on my novel only to crash and burn as the rigors of my new job started to take there toll. I continued to delve into my strengths and weaknesses and discover more and more that I am not what my grandiose ideas about myself might incline me to believe. I took a sizable step forward in my relationship with God then, only weeks later let everything I thought I’d learned and all the discipline I thought I had instilled into my life evaporate for no good reason. I also, thought I was moving for the first time towards pursuing a serious relationship only to have it all fizzle up before it ever began.

It was a year of frustration and heartache seasoned with some of the greatest moment and experiences of my adult life. I went white water rafting, skiing, climbed the highest mountain in southern California, saw my sister get married, had two crazy all night lock-ins, went to Disneyland twice and finally celebrated Christmas in Los Angeles. Yet despite all the fun, it was one of those years where you feel like everything is falling apart and then when you are at your lowest, you realize in the grand scope of things your problems are really fairly minor and you do in fact have a good life. It was that kind of year.

So, as I said it was a crazy, crazy year and as a result, the blog slowly took a back seat.

Now, however, it’s back and hopefully I will be taking it in some exciting new directions.

Here’s what I’ll be writing about:

  • What I believe: I really want to explore life and faith, and be honest about it. I live most of my day in a post faith reality and the sad fact is that I am a very mute Christian. I want this blog to be a place where I can explore how that plays out.
  • What I like: It’s no secret that I am a sports fan, movie buff, and writing fanatic so it only makes sense that some of my blog posts would be about my favorite hobbies.
  • Who I really am: I feel I am a fairly self aware individual and I would love to share what makes me tick with you. I find it very fascinating that I can be so acutely aware of my own shortcomings and yet be so clueless when it comes to making actual changes or progressing forward.
  • How I can help you: This past year I’ve learned quite a bit, especially about assistant editing, so I plan on doing some how to’s. My first will probably be some Avid workflow related guides. Stay tuned if you you’re interested in assistant editing, but don’t really know anything about it. I’ll do my best to help you out.

That’s it! The plan is to update this blog every Monday night (work permitting).

I hope what I have to say will interest and inspire you. I also hope to thoroughly offend everyone (atheist, Christians, and sports fans alike) and cause you to stop and think while I do a little public thinking myself.

See you next Monday!
