Sigh. I swear that I change my mind as often as my daughter changes her clothes. And that’s a lot. My last post let you know that I was going to change my blog’s focus to some other aspects of my life and away from my writing. My reasoning behind this was that I haven’t written anything in six months and didn’t feel “qualified” to still consider myself a writer.
But I was born to write. From as long as I can remember I’ve wanted to write a book. I did that. Twice. But writing a novel takes determination, drive, patience and a lot of hard work. I haven’t lost the ability to write, just the passion to write. I hope it’s temporary and that writing on a regular basis for this blog will bring drive back. Until then, I’m going to do some other things that I’ve always wanted to do. There’s no better time than the present.
With that being said, I’m going back to my original idea of blogging. I will share my personal life experiences (past and present) with anyone who cares to read about them. And if someone happens to learn something about themselves through my continuous fuck-ups, well that’s just fan-fucking-tastic.
I’m also creating some pages that will make the blog more user-friendly and organize my posts by category. I am also planning (in the near future) to teach myself how to play the piano (I started many years ago but it turns out that I’m not a very good teacher. Or student), to draw (I bought some drawing supplies months ago) and I want to brush up on and improve my Spanish.
I am aiming for bi-weekly posts and I will try to stick with that frequency but as I’m sure you can understand, shit happens and life gets in the way.
I hope you will stick with me as I blindly make my way through the blogging world. If for nothing else, to watch me fall on my ass while you point and laugh.

Oh…and I plan to use my own photos for the blog’s header. My aim is to have a different one for every post.
