Where the hey have you been?

That's the question I keep getting. Well, there are two big reasons I haven't been posting here very much lately.

The first is work. You know all that excitement I had six months ago about getting my new job? Well, that was definitely the honeymoon phase and it's long been over. Learning an entirely new occupation is pretty rough, especially when I really needed to be up-to-speed from day one. Obviously that's an irrational expectation but that's kinda what the job called for. No real room for a learning curve has caused (along with some stupid personal stuff on my end) a lacking of trust from those around me and some stuff I'm struggling to learn.

I had to tell someone today that I was sorry for telling them I could handle something that I turned out not being able to handle. That kind of stuff is common-place in the corporate world (where I spent the last almost-ten years)... a constant drive to be better and promise more so you rise to the top of the proverbial ladder. Unfortunately, that kind of work ethic doesn't fit into the small non-profit world because the flip side -- loss of position and/or status if you can't follow through -- doesn't exist. A lack of skill hurts a non-profit organization because they don't have the room to execute as the corporate world does. They need you to be strong out of the gate but offer no training to get there. It's an ugly catch-22 I should have been more aware of before I took the job. As soon as I got there I tried to impress instead of just being vulnerably honest and now my reputation is shot. I'm really struggling with that.

The second, not so downer reason for my lack of posting is actually more posting somewhere else. As some of you know (and many of you have likely forgot), I'm posting trail journals for my friends Jason & Diana as they are thru-hiking the Appalachian Trail. With the exception of a few days, I've been posting there every day for the last month or so. I'll be doing so all the way until the beginning of October.

If you haven't checked it out, you're missing a wild adventure. To date in the journals they have already hiked almost 500 miles and today they had a baby bear in their camp. To read my daily postings and to follow their adventure, click on the second tab in my blogroll, "Jason and Diana's trail journals". If you like to read, there's nothing better than reading a story as it happens.

I'll try to post here more, but the two reasons above may hamper that for a little while. Don't worry, I'm not disappearing. Taking some breaks, maybe..... but not disappearing.

No worries buddy i'm leaning that blogging really is a seasonal thing sometimes up sometimes not so much.

Hope the learning curve on the new job eases up. Been thinking of you lately.

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
