Dear Blog

Dear Blog,

I've neglected you. I created you when I was at a high in my life - I had dreams, aspirations, plans... I was going to be a success story that all the kids would talk about. I posted entries on you for a week. Then I posted on May 1st of this year.

It is now September 8th. Yes, it really has been 4 months since I thought about you. I'm sorry. My dreams and aspirations started seeming like a delusional fantasy. Life got in the way. I lost my way, and I neglected you, Dear Blog.

But I'm back. Yes, I know, you're a cynic now. A lover scorned never trusts again. I understand. But I'm going to try to make amends.

I've had a lot on my plate lately. Since I last spoke to you, I have started a Retail Course at a tertiary education place. I'm going to get a job by the start of next year. The Retail Course will finish the end of November. Then, Dear Blog, I'll be on my way. I'll have an income again. I'll be able to buy you things.

But you don't want material objects, do you Blog? All you want is the love I cannot give.

But maybe I can?

I've grown, I've regressed, I've had 2 flus. I still have aspirations, though now the superstar fantasies are dying. Yes, I've become a cynic again, just like you. I'll dream of riches only when they come my way. But there's one thing I can do for you, Dear Blog. I can write.

I won't promise undying passion for you. I can't do that. I honestly don't know how often we'll see each other. But I will try to write you, every once in a while, to make you feel loved again, although I'm not sure what I'll write about. One day at a time is how I'll have to take it.

Did you hear that my Uni studies have progressed? I passed my first subject, and now the second subject's assignment due-dates are looming. It's not a writing class, not this time, but rather a class on politics. I don't know how I'll fare, but I'll give it a shot.

How did you feel when Australia elected its first female Prime Minister yesterday? A minority Government, with the help of some Independents and the first ever Greens MP, and our great Julia Gillard in power - it's heady days. The voting happened about 3 weeks ago, and it took this long to get a result, but I'm happy about it. She had my vote.

You can be a real blog if you believe in yourself, my Dearest Blog. Do you believe?

From - your creator, Cliff Face.

PS. Blog... do you ever dare to dream?
