Trying to pick up the pieces

     So I've never really made much of a name for myself online. I'd like to think that a lot of people enjoy my blog, but it's not much noteworthy. Most of what I say is largely covered elsewhere with more research and forethought and the only real reason to come here is because of the breadth of topics and writing style. My games website updates infrequently, is poorly organized, and the forum on it has few members and is largely ignored. In fact I can honestly say that I haven't done anything very noteworthy in general. But there's some comfort to be taken in that.
     All of that really means that I've left my fields open, and I can simply drop and pick up projects randomly without anyone taking much notice; I have infrequent and often unnoticed spam attacks; and to be frank, I can concentrate on whatever the hell I want to and it doesn't change much. My life remains largely my own, in that I don't have to spend hours or days laboriously working to update some website that I honestly don't care about, I don't have to worry about seeking mass approval for any updates to anything, and I basically spend my time how I wish. Certainly I wish that sites like Scuzzstuff would pick up more popularity, but I'd rather not spend all my time fighting legal battles to keep the games that I collect up on my site.
     So what am I really trying to say here? I've dropped a lot of things over the past year. I simply haven't had enough time to keep up with the stuff I wanted to do and school at the same time. The most obvious sufferer has been this blog and the forum. So now, I'm trying to pick up the pieces.
     This started with an update to my blog. The first one in a while. It made a promise that I'd be updating for at least one week. Solidly. So far I've managed to keep that. Next I put up two more games on Scuzzstuff. Sure, they aren't the most fun things I've put up, but they're fun and they'll do the job of keeping you occupied. And finally, I went back on to the forum which I haven't visited with a worthwhile post in many months. It seems like there's more I have to work on, but I think that for the most part I've caught up in terms of the bigger things I work on. I'll probably be a while in getting back into the regular flow, but it'll get there. I've forgotten what the point I was going to make is so I guess I'll just end it here.

A bit more scatterbrained than usual:

guh, i think you do too much. or, you take on too much, get overwhelmed, and then end up not doing things. summer gives a deceptive free timeliness...so...don't kill yourself?

I always think of you as a very busy person... but i can't ever really think of what you're actually DOING. The only thing i could imagine you being really busy with is a job or school/sports training. I'm fairly sure you're not doing sports training right now, pretty sure you aren't doing summer school, and can't imagine that your job would keep you extraordinarily busy without your wanting it to. Anyway, i'd really love to know what's keeping you so busy these days.

Scatterbrained.. that's a funny word... It reminds me of the Spaced Penguin game, which I sadly love.

Kind of combining with what Suzi and Ben said... maybe you take on too much to being with, and then become overwhelmed... and maybe you want to be extraordinarly busy..
