Good evening to all. I just wanted to say that I promise that I have not (yet) abandoned the world of writing on the blog. Often people go at it for a while with some strong energy, then slowly but surely entirely stop writing because they run out of things to say. It is clear that it is pretty impossible that I will ever run out of things to say (unintelligent and nonsensical things do technically count as things to say), but I decided over the past couple months to really enjoy the first months of Dean's life while also appropriately committing myself to my still pretty new employment path. Trying to do both of these things as well as possible has resulted in a massive degradation of time directed toward many things I care about, including consistent running, watching TV, and chunks of sleep greater than 1.5 hours. They say that life is a series of compromises, and I now realize that this is only the case when you have children. Prior to that, there is absolutely no need to compromise on anything, ever. This is exactly the message that I will communicate to Dean. For now, I will continue to enjoy the first months of our new family member and just stockpile my ingenuity, waiting to be unleashed like a torrent of things that happen really quickly when they have been leashed for a long period of time. Just like one of those things.
