It's not that I've lost interest in this blog; it's that I've lost time. The good news is that the time went towards something really rad.
I've been playing roller derby for a start-up league in the bay area since February. This fall was our first competitive season. I made the roster, which was pretty amazing, since I never put on a pair of skates until 9 months ago.
It's been incredible. I've learned a lot—about the sport, about teamwork, about my own strengths and skills. I wouldn't give it up for anything. But that, coupled with an extremely busy season for my day job killed my posting schedule for the last couple months.
I'm going to get back on the wagon very soon. I've been feeling renewed the last couple days, now that it's derby off-season, my coworker is back from maternity leave, and I have a little more room to ponder identity, branding, packaging, function, and design.
I thought about not even writing about this, but derby is me too. And ultimately, this blog is about me. It's about design and art and messaging and all the rest, but it begins and ends with me.
See you soon.
