I always seem more prone to write at the beginning and end of the year. It's easy to miss the cadence of the internet writer I  used to be. Given the amount of writing I do from day to day, I know I'm a better writer now than I used to be. Much of my writing these days is written for a different purpose, and no matter how used it I become, I still miss writing here.

Some of my writing is in a journal. Some of my writing is for work. The writing I used to do on the internet was very much about self-discovery, and in the process I found a rich group of people from around the world who helped me embrace myself.

The longer you spend away, the harder it is to try to find your way back. I feel I've lost a part of myself, and am hoping to find it again.
