Revisit, reexamine, rethink

To paraphrase the great film director Federico Fellini:

Blogging is like returning to the womb; you sit there, still and meditative in the darkness, waiting for life to appear on the screen.
With that said, I feel repentant returning to blog for only the second time in nearly three months. Unfortunately, several responsibilities have taken precedence over blogging here:
  1. I was rushed into handing in a few reports for my U.N. "job" in January and I've followed it up a few times since then.
  2. I caught the flu in February and it knocked me down pretty hard during most of the month.
  3. I preferred blogging here since I enjoy informing others on the news and communicating over important issues.
  4. More than anything else, I have been very occupied taking care of my Master's Project with the hope that my dream can come true.
At the same time, I feel comfortable writing in this blog again. For me it is a very handy vehicle of personal expression. As I look back in hindsight as to why I rarely blogged here, I understand that the brief list of rules I made created in November were serving as an obstacle. Along with the aforementioned excuses, the list hindered more than it helped. Hence, I'm tossing out the rules for the next few weeks while I hope to establish more consistent posting here.

I don't want to promise more than I should (like I did here), yet if I play my cards right I'll be blogging here quite often.

Otherwise, I might as well shut this all down and figure out a better format for expression.
