TFW: You realize you haven’t blogged in over 2 years!

I have been casting about trying to figure out how to start this blog post, the first in over two years. In the old days when I was blogging almost daily, I would wake up every morning thinking about what I was going to write about. I would get up, make a cup of Americano,…
