I was recently updating my resume— something I haven’t done in years— when I got to the bottom section, the ol’ dump of skills/interests/miscellaneous fun facts about myself, and noticed I had the following lie written:
“Author of food blog, LaBuonaForchetta.wordpress.com”
I mean, I guess it’s not a lie. I really am the author of this here blog, but the way it was written makes it seem like I’m the current author, like I write in it regularly, like this is something I DO, I write, I update, I keep up the charade of being a food blogger. And THAT was the lie. Because I realized that I haven’t blogged about anything in months, and when I came here to check and realized that the last time I wrote anything was at the end of summer, back in August, I was ashamed of myself, for being a liar and a bad blogger.
So what have I been up to? Oh you know, the usual: working, gallivanting, tom foolery, and some traveling (which I’ll tell you about soon, promise). I was updating my resume cause I’ve been dealing with a nagging feeling of restlessness caused by a stalling work life, love life and personal life. I’ll spare you the details but let’s just say I need something new and fresh in my life, and the ever present mild case of anxiety I’ve been recently plagued with has also killed my desire to write.
Sorry to get all “dear diary” on you but there you have it. That’s why I’ve been away. But I’m back, here on the blog I mean, and I’m a liar no more.
