This is my 300th post, and like those ancient Spartan warriors, it has been a hard fight to get here, relatively speaking (I didn’t have to slaughter any Persians or anything). Over the last few years, this blog has kind of been all over the place. I think I have talked about everything under the sun at one point or another (though I’m glad I ditched any notion of talking religion or politics very early on).

I’ve had some dry spells, like recently, where I posted very little. And I’ve had some periods where it seemed I would never shut the hell up. But through it all, I’ve always tried to be me. Yes, if you read my blog with any regularity, you know I’m angsty, self-doubting, and overly-opinionated. I’m very much a dad, a husband, a geek, and sometimes even a writer. I’m a student, and a teacher. I’m pretty smart, but I say and do a lot of dumb shit. And I love to read, but I have a very short attention span.

If you’re still actually reading my blogs, I thank you. Thank you for allowing me to use you as self-validation. If you’re not reading this blog, then you can go to hell! And I can say that because, if you’re not reading this, you’ll never know I said it.

I’d like to think that this is a turning point. That just up ahead is a crossroads or a fork, and I will choose a new and exciting path. Well, that’s what I’d like to think, anyways. But in reality, this meandering road I am on will just continue to meander on, so I am just going to enjoy the view along the way.

Though I do plan to have more writing stuff in the near future. I hope you’ll stick around for that, at least.

Yeah, we usually maintain the kind of pattern we've exhibited, but there's nothing wrong with that. Good to be interested in all kinds of things. Keeps life exciting.
