I haven’t written here in a minute, and by a minute I mean well over three months. It’s been a weird experience because it’s not like I have been so overwhelmed that I couldn’t spare a second to this dumpster fire of a website.

It’s more like I was very underwhelmed by this website. I really loved it at the start and I felt like my writing had been looking forever for a place to call home and somehow by some happenstance it had found it here. I now realize this website was not made so much so for things like the poems I loved making but more like for articles that start with “How I made 5,000,000 Dollars on Medium with only 4 articles”.

If you’ve spent any significant amount of time here you’ve probably seen more articles like that than you’d like to admit. Also if I have to come across one more open letter to Ev Williams I genuinely might close my laptop and never open it again .

I am very well aware I am coming across as a moaner. I can hear you thinking “You don’t like it, bounce ! Nobody is holding you hostage” and you’re right but I still perserve the notion in my heart that this website could still be so much fun. Besides, I have already fallen pray to The Sunken Cost effect , it is much too late for me to jump off this train.

I don’t know if anyone here has missed my writing, but truth be told I have missed writing here. I’m ready to give it another go and if you end up finding something in my words that helps you, then all the exagerated articles and open letters will have been worth it.

Thank you for reading all the way to here, I deeply appreciate it!

If there is a subject that concerns self-improvement, psychology or philosophy you’d like me to write about, please feel free to leave a comment.
