I just realized it's been a long time since I've added a new page to, "Chapter Five". I've definitely been keeping myself busy with blog and writing projects, just not as directly focused on this project as I once was. As I recently passed my One-Year Anniversary in blogging, I honestly wasn't sure what my next step was. I originally thought this was going to be my only blog project and I would somehow achieve what I wanted with just one blog. I was wrong.
Something, something, eclipse. Oh yeah, I wrote some stuff too...
The biggest problem that I have run into this past week with my writing and presence on social media and the internet is finding that sweet spot where I can truly say what is on my mind without upsetting the masses. I know ultimately, this is a losing endeavor, however, what I don't purposely intend to do is say something to upset people.
To me, I don't like the idea of anger being a negative word. There are outlets for anger and I can assure you that I'm not interested in physically fighting anybody or getting into screaming matches for the sake of having a release.

My Birthday was this past Thursday. It was a great experience overall. I had just recently joined Facebook, against my own inhibitions not to do so for several years. Nothing personal, I still find it as clunky and non-responsive as I did when I first visited it a long time ago, I miss MySpace if I'm being honest. Even through a number of reconnections with family and friends, all the Birthday well wishes, and the "re-emergence" of being socially alive and well, the biggest take away from turning 35 was the thought of me reaching the peak of "the hill". Yes, that hill.
