Ok, so i have a few excuses for why i haven't posted anything in over two months. Wanna hear them?
Excuse #1: My iphone was stolen at frisbee by three little 12-year-old punks. Before we realized what happened, it was far too late, and they were long gone. I was pissed and sad for a little while. Fortunately i had backed up most of my photos and videos of Jordan, but there were five or six new videos of him laughing/crawling/being awesome that were lost forever. I lost my desire to blog.
Excuse #2: I've been writing for the More Hangzhou magazine a lot in the past three months as a part time job. Unfortunately, most of what i write doesn't get onto the website, but there's usually at least one thing up there that's mine. It's the first time i've been paid to write, and it's a really good feeling. I enjoy writing, and seeing my words in print is pretty cool. Plus it helps pay the rent. But writing for them means i don't have the drive to write for myself.
Excuse #3: I've started playing drums in the band at Mangos Bar, and not so coincidentally i wrote that review too. When i went in there to review the place, i was of course drawn to the drumset. I hadn't played in over a year and had been missing it. I got to talking with the owner, Tony, who was looking to form a band. He just needed a drummer. So, now i'm playing there wednesday through sunday nights from 8:30-11 as another part time job.
But excuses are stupid. Today i finally decided to connect esther's ipad to my computer to see if i could copy all of her awesome Jordan videos and photos. Turns out i can. It's time for everyone's favorite blog post... MASSIVE JORDAN PHOTO DUMP! ... as opposed to his other kind of massive dump.
