Another Day

Today is a good day. Today is a new lease on life, a new start, a rebirth. Today is the day I begin taking back my own destiny. I’ve found myself with a ton of extra free time, and a friend of mine made a few suggestions that I think I’ll take. “Start prepping meals for the week. Start working out. Get a personal trainer. Work on yourself.” He’s not wrong. I’m too old to neglect my health. I’m not getting a personal trainer, that’s beyond my financial reach at the moment, but I have a fitness room I can access at my apartment complex. I can eat healther, I’m already dropping weight. I’m going to take control of my health, since I have time to take control of it. I’m also taking better care of my living environment. I’m picking up extra hours at work. All the while, I’m still able to treat my kids like the amazing little humans they are.

It’s up to me to make myself important. It’s up to me, and I’m taking control of my life for the best, for everyone I love. I’m going to make 2020 the best damn year I can make it, and I’m not going to shy away from opportunities or challenges. I’m going to meet them head on, and by God I’ll conquer them all. I am a strong person. I can do this. I will do this. I’ve been doing this. Today isn’t just another day. Today is a new day.

Blogging Resumes

I think I’m going to start blogging semi-regularly, both to get shit off my chest and maybe, on occasion, share some knowledge. I need an outlet for the garbage banging around in my tiny, mostly empty skull. I suppose I have a few bits of advice for anyone living in the digital age. There are a few choice pieces up here already, but I’ll admit that in the time since I’ve written stuff here, my skills have improved a bit.

Though, I have to ask; Is there anyone out there who knows why the hell ufw keeps breaking? It seems like every sudo apt-get update | apt-get upgrade is a death knell for ufw configuration. Any reboot after an upgrade just obliterates the entire list of allowed/denied ports. Fucking ufw. I swear.

Man, my life is a fucking mess. I’m not going to splay everything here for twelve people to pore over, but I may on occasion allude to the hard time I’m having in life. I think I’d like to also start blogging about the path my career is taking, try to put some positivity into this thing. Maybe an injection of positivity will help me keep sane somewhat, I don’t know. Sanity seems like such a distant goal at this point.

Holy shit, it’s been a while. Things have changed. Soooo many things. My job has changed since I really took blogging even remotely seriously. I think the trajectory of my career has been surprisingly upward. Moreso than I ever considered it could go. It’s a great thing, but it also taxes my ability to do any serious blogging. I also have been so entirely out of the scene that I pretty much don’t keep in touch with anyone anymore, save for one or two individuals.

Man, I can’t even. I just can’t even.

So I might post up a few useful tidbits I’ve collected over my brief “non-blogging” period. Brief. Hah.

One of these days I really need to put something up here that’s not just more “languishing death knell”.

F’reals. I will, too. Just you watch. I bet I’ll have a half decent post up here by 2025. Easy.
