Well, here it is. I don’t know the date of my last blog post. I only know it was over two years ago. It honestly seems like a lot longer.
Most of my past blog posts were focused on news that was going on in the world, specifically in Mexico. I’m essentially done with that. Right now, I have no desire to write anything related to current events in the world. I’m just going to use this blog to vent about the stuff that I can see with my own two eyes – situations, irony, whatever.
With that out of the way, I guess I’ll start off with where I’ve been for the last two years.
Sometime after my last blog post, I made the decision to move to Monterrey, Mexico. It wasn’t an easy decision, and it wasn’t an easy thing to do. Honestly, it was probably the most difficult and independent thing I have ever done, but I did it anyway. I don’t know if there was any blood involved, but I know there was certainly some sweat and tears.
The thing that led me to Monterrey is too personal for me to write about. I try to keep that locked away, for better or worse. What has kept me there, is probably the same thing. Anyway, I’m still there, not at this exact moment, but I’m obligated to return there in somewhere around ten days.
I’ve had the funnest of times down there and the saddest of times. The fun comes from the great friends and people I’ve met. I wouldn’t be there still if I didn’t know them. They’ve made it feel like home away from home. The sad comes from a broken heart. Again, I won’t write too much about that, other than by saying things didn’t work the way I’d dreamed they would.
I suppose that all I can do is fire up my ignition and look to the headlights…though it’s almost impossible not to glance in the rear view mirror every now and then.
Whatever I see in the headlights this year, I’m finally going to try to write about it.
