|you said we had unfinished business, but it's finished now

you might've noticed that i haven't really blogged that much in the past year or so - i mean, heck, my first post of 2009 was in july. that's pretty shameful, especially since i'm someone who quite enjoys dipping into my blog archives on occasion (morbidly embarrasing as they can sometimes be). i guess i stopped blogging for a variety of reasons - lack of time, laziness, lack of anything worth blogging about - but those same reasons that never stopped me in the past, y'know? and reading through my old blog archives does make me want to start blogging again.
accordingly: i am going to! only, elsewhere.
it was what, four years ago when i started blogging here? four years doesn't really seem like a long time, but it really is, and a lot has happened and a lot has changed in those four years. i've recently read through my entire blog, and i don't think you really realise how much you've changed until you actually see that? y'know, i have this idealised memory of me in 2005, and it doesn't seem too far from who i am now, but then you go back and read stuff you wrote then and you're like "umh, cringe much? why did i ever write this?", and you realise how different you were back then. i mean, if you go and read my first ever post (which is something that you should never, ever do), it's hard to imagine me writing anything of the sort these days.
in short: i feel like a fresh start; a new blog without four years worth of archive posts behind it. i was actually going to just make my archives private and start again here, but as it turned out, i think you need a paid account to do them all in one go, and it was just far easier to start a new blog elsewhere. i'll still read my flist daily, and i might even post here on occasion! who knows? i'm not disappearing, at any rate. so, i suppose - farewell, but not goodbye!
finally did its time
one million keystrokes have gone by
and i've never saved another's life
why didn't i choose the other way?
i'm damned if i go, damned if i stay
then there's the place i am in
all pages in your lap
all levels in the dark
everything just comes
and then goes again
