Unfortunate Side Effects

So I really like writing this blog. I think it is a good exercise for me to practice my writing, because in general I consider myself a typical engineer with poor verbal skills.

The thing is, I spend half an hour trying to think of the interesting things in my day to write about. Then, after I've hashed through all the even remotely interesting events I figure I've told them all. The result of this mentality is that I am actually growing more distant from people who don't read my blog. When they ask me what's going on in my life I can't think of anything new to tell because I've already told everything to my blog.

So I guess, if you miss out on reading this, you're probably going to miss out on a lot that is happening with me.

Although, now that I think about it, if you're reading this you probably aren't the person I need to be explaining this to.

Oh, no, now that I've confessed this to my blog I probably won't tell the people who aren't getting the stories about it.

They'll be in the dark about being in the dark.

Viscious cycle.

I've noticed the same thing lately... and I feel like I've become extremely boring to my friends. Either that, or I worry I'm repeating everything I say.
