Its about that time…

…for another blog

However, what I really want to say, I can’t get into right now.

Not because there is not time, I would just rather use the time before I retire for other things.

Like reading.

Something that has been consuming me in a good way lately, as opposed to other things in the near recent past.

Which were total wastes of time.

But this is not the time of the place for a digression of that sort.

In addition, anything I say about that will mostly be venting, something better done in private.

Moving on….

….or not quite yet.

My intuition has yet to fail me, however, I quite frequently fail my intuition.

As such, there are times when I know I am making a bad decision, but choose to make it anyway.

And then successfully rationalize away my gut instinct to quell the anxiety that ensues.

However, if nothing else, I have learned the value of not necessarily being guided by my intuition, but being more acutely aware of it.

Could have saved myself a lot of trouble by doing that about this time last year, but sometimes you have to make mistakes.

All the same, I would just assume avoid making an obviously wrong choice next time around.

Maybe I will seek out advice before making the decision, as opposed to after digging my self in almost too deep to come out.

If anything this is good catharsis, regardless of any controversy that results from it.

Oh catharsis, how I’ve missed you! You must stop by more often, I could use a friend.

Even of a temporary sort such as yourself.

I’m not the best at keeping in touch anyway, so anything long term would not work out for either of us, but just the same…thanks for stopping by.

Anyway, enough personification (especially as poorly done as mine).

I should probably wrap this up, there are several good books and a small stuffed elephant and dolphin calling my name.

Its been quite the last 12 months, I am glad I snapped out of it in time to salvage some of the time I have left before departure.

Narrowly avoiding the mistake of a lifetime changes your perspective quite a bit, but I wouldn’t recommend the process.

At least not to everyone, sometimes the stubborn ones can only learn that way.

But I’m speaking of my own shortcomings, anyway, this is slowly turning into a ramble, but again…its good for me.

So, next time, I’ll try to be a little more positive, a little more philosophical, and as always, a little more pedantic (or at least a little more pensive)

One thing the next blog will not have is panache, you can at least count on me for that.

I promise.
