It's been some time since my last post, and for that I am sorry. It's just that I thought no one was reading so I felt it wasn't worth keeping up. I have since learned that there are a few faithful readers out there, and to them I earnestly express my apologies.
Christmas is coming, and I've never been less excited. It's not to say that I'm no longer looking forward to it, I am. It's just not as special this year. I can't honestly say I am all that happy right now and I don't think that Christmas Day can fix that. I'm not sure there's anything that can fix that right now. Life is just hard. There isn't all that much to be happy about. I'm certainly grateful for the things I do have, but I'm also seriously struggling with the things I don't have.
And here's the dose of Red Headed Realism:
In the past two years I've been more mixed up about my life and future than I've ever been before. In that two years I've experienced more failure than ever before... in my finances, spiritual life, emotional life, academics, and aspirations.
That real enough for everyone?
Sorry for the tone of the post. Please know that it was cathartic for me.
