I’ve been struggling for quite some time now with what exactly to do with uncouthheathen.com and for a while I was almost certainly going to delete it. I can’t really give a solid explanation of why, but I’ve had this nagging feeling that I needed some sort of separation from the past in order to continue. I needed to remake UH into who I feel like I am now as opposed to the person that I feel, in some ways, so far removed from.
I started UH in 2007 and so much has happened since then. Life has drastically changed for me and in many ways I feel like much of what I’ve written about is no longer relevant to my life now. But at the same time, it’s still ME. The experiences, ideas, feelings and words are all a part of my life regardless of whether or not I delete them. Instead, I decided to create a delineation for myself between the past and the present. That old life and the person I am now, for having lived through that. So I’ve removed what’s come before now to an archive. Its still accessible through a link on the sidebar, but I have the separation I’ve wanted for myself. I’ve given myself the clean slate I feel like I’ve needed to carry on with what I’ve always loved about having this website…writing about my life experiences, the people I love, the people I don’t, the things I think about and every bit of crap in between. I’m excited for a new beginning and excited to leave the past behind to start focusing on the future.
Welcome (back) to uncouth heathen. I’ve missed you.
