...and this time, I am back for a regular routine of blogging. Why bother you ask? Well, there are a variety of reasons why I need to get back to blogging:

1. There have been so many times over the past year that I have wanted to write. The straw that broke the camel's back (which I will be writing about shortly) is the termination of my blogging mentor and personal idol Colin McEnroe. I am seething over this dumb, dumb, dumb idea.

2. My writing has become sluggish. As I sit, writing on my laptop, I feel like I am back at the gym for the first time in years. I guarantee that I will be wiped out after this writing. Truly.

3. I have failed at my thesis, and need to figure out a way to bounce back. Fail is a relative term, but in my case, my first draft was rejected outright by my adviser. Rather than give up, I am proposing a dramatic re haul of my writing and hoping he will allow me to file another extension. I will, of course, blame my ten month old baby girl, but I realize that my weakness lies in my ability to fake my writing skills for so many years. I have some severe deficiencies to make up for and I hope that writing will bequeath better writing.

Blogging is easy to start, but hard to really get truly involved in. I can't promise much, other than that I will try.

Welcome back, Brett. I'm hoping that you stick around this time for good.

But it's been seven days.

Let's go, man.
