Partly my work makes it so I have less time than I had before, and while it isn’t the most intellectually demanding job, it is mentally draining over the day because I need to be focused. This means I want to use my diminished amount of free time – my job is full-time, 9-to-5 job, five days a week – to recharge, which means I have even less time for hobbies or other forms of spending my free time with mentally demanding activities.
My genealogy and learning Portuguese have also suffered because of this. As in, I haven’t actually done those things in months, save recently updating my family tree with the marriage of a cousin of my dads.
But I digress. The point is I can’t really promise to post regularly, even when I have announced I will try to do so. I’m afraid for the time being everyone (including myself) will have to make do with that.
