broken and silent
so many secrets hidden
the mask is melting

Personally, I am completely burnt out on social media. It gives me agita to be honest. Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, WhatsApp...all and any of it makes me want to bash my head against a brick wall.
Like everyone else I use it. I have to for business reasons and to see what's going on as far as events and stuff go. But, I honestly can't keep up and don't want to. The algorithms they have these days make "keeping up" nearly impossible. That's the point, right? They want your eyeballs for hours and hours.
So, I've more or less quit. "Well, who gives a fuck?", you might ask. Fair question. The answer: nobody. "So why are you doing this 'blog', if you're so above it all man?", you might also ask. Another fair question. The answer: I don't know. I guess I wanna be recognized just as much as the next anon and show off all the shit I think is clever and cool. I'm just tired of doing it with all the screaming and yelling going on around me.
I've started and stopped blogs probably a dozen times over the last 15 years. I'm not good at it. But I plan to give it a proper go this time around. I'm looking at it like this is my house and if you wanna stop by, you're always welcome. Can't guarantee I'll be home or if I am, that I'll have anything interesting to offer. However, I'll be grateful if ya check in now and then to see how I'm doing.
