Readers and partners,
I wanted to take the time to apologize for the lack of posts that I have been making over the past couple of months. This trend will continue until around Christmas due to a change in current focuses in my life. As we all go through things from time to time, I know most of you will understand these issues. I wanted to lay them out as communication and transparency is always important to me.
The first thing is I am finishing up my Master’s degree in December. I am currently in my last term at George Washington University and finishing up their Security & Safety Leadership program. This term includes a massive Master’s Capstone project with lots of research and writing, plus two other courses. This accelerated program has kicked my ass in terms of how fast it has progressed and keeping up with the work while…
Working 40+ hours a week. I never thought I could go to school full-time and work over 40 hours a week during the same period. Luckily, I have a job that has some down time so I have additional time to work on school work. But that may change soon as…
I’m trying to upgrade in the job department. Being highly overqualified for my current position has put me in a predicament where I am trying to find more of a “career” job or at least something I’d really like to spend some time doing. I’ve been applying for promotions internally as well as outside jobs in the hope of finding something. The economy still isn’t great, but it is something I spend a lot of time doing. I also have been spending a lot of time…
Figuring out what I have to do to be a good parent. My wife and I aren’t pregnant yet, but it will be happening in the very near future. That being said, it is a time for self reflection and understanding what I can do to improve my life and the future life of my family. As someone who likes introspection, I have a lot of personal things I would love to improve and I’ve been working on those things as well.
So yeah, I have a lot on my plate coming up. The one thing that takes the most time, school, will be done in December. Hopefully by that time I will have a better job and maybe even might have a child on the way. My New Year’s resolution is to have many of these things taken care of so I can go back to enjoying one of my favorite hobbies that has been on the back-burner the past few months…collecting cards! I can’t tell you how much I miss just writing and learning about new products coming out and sharing it with people. If I happen to continue to get products to review or buy a product here and there, I will be doing those posts, but for now everything has slowed down to a crawl with the website.
I will continue to put a couple posts of things I find interesting or funny, like that last autograph post, but things will be popping back up for 2014 on a more regular basis.
Thanks for sticking around and all of the messages on Twitter. I still do post and check out the tweets from time to time @SportsCardBlog. I also love my COMC store as well and will be getting more into that in the future (I’m still accepting all offers of 15% off, cheap plug).
Stay tuned, there is still more to come on the blog. It isn’t dead yet!
