A Welcome Back

So it’s been quite a while since my last post. In the beginning I had no idea what this blog was going to be, and to be honest, I still have no idea. It was originally going to be a “tech” focused blog. Just random writings about random tech stuff I found myself doing/learning about. But then I never got around to doing that. But now I think it’s just going to be about my life. Just posts about things going on with me. Maybe someone will find them interesting or useful depending on the context of the post. But for now I’m just going to post an update.

Since my last post a lot has happened. I got a new job. I started skateboarding again. I lost a lot of weight. I started spending more time with my wife. All of these are good things and things have been getting a lot better.

For those of you who don’t know, I struggle with depression and anxiety. I am on medication for both and both of these have made my life very difficult. I don’t want to be the kind of person who blames everything on my mental state, but it makes things hard. I was out of a job for two years because I had a mental breakdown and quit my job. A nice, cushy office job that paid pretty well. My relationship with my wife wasn’t going very well. I stopped doing anything that I enjoyed doing and basically just laid in bed all day or sat on the computer.

But that is no more. I’m turning things around. I’m getting serious. I’m getting healthy. I’m staying active. Next year is going to be good.
