The day finally arrived. I'm typing this while still feeling somewhat sick. Have a stupid cold that doesn't want to leave me alone and a slight headache that is making working on a screen a particularly pleasant experience. But I decided it was time to get on with this post number 100. It's a stupid milestone post, I know and frankly, I don't care that much about it. Still, it's nice to use it as an excuse to look back and reflect on what happened in these almost 3 years.
As I wrote in my History of my personal website this blog experiment started on new year's eve, almost 3 years ago but those initial posts are long gone. The archive on this site starts in July but maybe I can try to find those old posts. We're almost at the end of October which means I've been "blogging" for almost 3 years. That is honestly shocking to me. I never thought this could become a thing for me but hey, looks like I'm enjoying it.
What changed in these 3 years? Not much. I feel like my life is in the same place and that's a good and a bad thing at the same time. On the one end, it's comforting to know things are not getting worse, I'm still healthy (cold aside) and still managing to do something helpful with my time. On the other end, it's sad to know nothing has changed. Personal projects are all still there and I feel like I didn't move forward that much. How do I change that? Don't know.
One thing that did change is my awareness of my mental state. I'm more painfully aware of how "not happy" I am with my current situation. But finding out how to overcome that is taking me time and it's tricky.
And that's pretty much it, I guess. I know this is not exactly the happiest "milestone post" ever but at least is an honest one. Time to start working on the next 100 posts. Hopefully is not going to take me another 3 years.
