SOBER CITY – Day 134


Sober City – May 14, 2011
It’s been over 4 months since I’ve had a drink and apparently I’m running out of things to say about it. It’s getting harder and harder to post on a regular basis and my readership has gone down about 75% in the last few posts, possibly as a result of my inconsistency. I’m not sure exactly what it is that changed but it’s not necessarily a bad thing. It’s way easier for me to post when I’m feeling like complaining or ranting about something, so the fact that I haven’t felt the need to write lately probably means I’m fairly content and happy in Sober City. It’s business as usual and a little boring really. I’m sure something crazy and blog worthy will happen soon, and when that time comes, the posts shall follow. Until then I might entertain the idea of another medium. Maybe it’s time for a new podcast or video blog. Maybe I should take questions from the readers (those few left). Or maybe I just keep posting the way I’ve been posting, sporadic as it may be, and embrace the peaks and valleys as they rise and fall. Real life isn’t always audience worthy (despite what MTV may tell you) and that’s a beautiful thing. It’s easy to lose ourselves in the public spectacle that is our 24/7 Twit-Face-Blog-O-Personality and forget that the only status update that truly matters is the one we check in to when no one is around in our quietest moments. Still breathing? Good. Still loving? Great. Have dinner? Check. This is what truly matters.
I love you all dear readers and I thank you for taking this journey with me from the bottom of my alcohol free heart and whatever form the documentation of this experiment should take on next, be it audio or video or more of the same, I do hope you come with me. Just remember to always keep reflecting and check in with your real self more often then you check in on Facebook. Cheers!
