I knew that this was gonna have to happen at least once.
So, yeah, the way I'm using this blog right now is evidently not working out, seeing as I post on average once a month, and that's quite unacceptable. I've been thinking about ways to solve this problem, and have finally come to a lovely conclusion.
The reason I decided to make a blog in the first place was quite simple, actually. I wanted a place to spill all those random thoughts I have and observations I make that are too long and detailed to put in a Facebook status. But I've begun expecting too much of myself when I write here, meaning that my only blog posts end up being overthought and boring or things that slipped by when I was too frustrated to care and are therefore very random and crappy.
So, I've decided I want to return to the original spirit of the thing. From now on, I'm going to try to post at least three times a week, but the posts will be much shorter and more informal than many of the previous ones, and will probably deal with one of three subjects:
-My explorations in language learning. I've started trying to teach myself German and Norwegian, and sort of dabble around in other languages from time to time. So far it's been quite an interesting endeavor, and should give me plenty of thoughts to share.
-Random thoughts or observations for the day.
-My journal that I kept while in Europe (it was pointed out to me that I only posted one entry and should probably post the rest.)
-Maybe, once a blue moon, something intelligent and well-written.
(Okay, that's four, shut up.)
Let's see how this works out.
