Don't call it a comeback, I been here for years...

Hola amigos. I know it's been a long time since I rapped at ya (bonus points for id'ing that semi-obscure pop culture reference,) but I'm back in business. I originally took my hiatus because I felt like I had a lot on my mind, and that I needed to give the blog a rest for awhile. I read a fair number of other blogs, and I would be surprised to occasionally see bloggers saying things like, "I think about this blog several times a day, wondering if what is happening is blog-worthy." Or, "Why do I think you care enough to know about [insert mundane topic here]" The response from me being, "Of course I care about [previously mentioned mundane topic] that's why I clicked on your blog, yo!"

But I noticed that as I started updating this blog everyday, that started to happen to me. This blog started taking up a lot of space in my brain. Too much, because it started to get hard for me to think about anything else. Now I'm feeling like a few weeks off has been good for me, and I am excited to get back in the swing of things. I won't be updating everyday, but I will use this space for what it has been from the beginning: A place for me to say what I think. And I've had a lot on my mind lately: The Supreme Court firefighter decision and the term "anti-racist" just to name two.

Another one of the things that I've been thinking is that it would be unwise for me to let the potential bump that would come from a shoutout on a blog much more popular than mine go to waste. So if you're visiting me for the first time from Macon's blog and are looking for a more comprehensive definition of the word racish, you should click here..

I've missed you all and am happy to be back. Stay tuned (:

    Hola amiga. Nice opener. I'm a little late to the comeback, but things have been a little crazy around here if you know what I mean.
