In the time since Stupidity Hole began it has been updated on four devices I’ve owned as well as more that belonged to an office, a hostel and a university. Since Stupidity Hole started I’ve had three jobs (third still going), a relationship begin and end, another relationship begin a few years later, a few new friendships and many failed ones.
Despite how unlikely it seemed toward its end, I finished a bachelor of science majoring in marine science. Now UNSW keep trying to sell me stuff.
I still make music (though not as much as I’d like) as well as do photography, and my gaming and reading comes and goes in cycles. I get to co-run and write for Culture Eater, which is something I enjoy quite a bit. I haven’t been on a lengthy bushwalk for a while and it has been longer since I last did parkour. I want to get back into doing those more often. I also want to get back into drawing.
Occasionally I think about all the blogs that have fallen by the wayside. I think about people that I’ve followed and how they’re now gone. Sometimes I think about why they stopped and why I’ve continued on.
I do feel as though I need to go through everything here and clean it up a bit. I’m pretty sure last year I said I’d do so. I’m thinking of taking down some things as I don’t feel they should be here anymore, though considering my track record it’ll be a while before that happens, but I digress.
I think early on I decided not to celebrate Stupidity Hole‘s anniversaries, but nine years is a long time. Not as long as ten, but certainly longer than three. In that time I’ve been through both a lot and not much. There has been a fair bit of hurt and sadness, a lot of introspection, all that kind of stuff. There has also been a lot of joy and happiness. I can still remember most of it (I think).
Even though there were also some gaps before Stupidity Hole began, I’ve been doing the blog thing for fifteen years now. Whilst my previous blogs ran for a few years (only closing due to their hosts ending and my inaction on moving them elsewhere), Stupidity Hole has continued for far longer than they did.
Aside from most of 2011, all of 2012 and most of 2013, Stupidity Hole has been a constant in my life. It’s not great by any measure, but despite my attempts to push for bettering my writing and photography I’m not overly fussed with how things have turned out. I don’t mind that this blog tangentialised into something I didn’t originally envision.
I’m pretty sure that at this point whilst writing on here I’ve burned out quite a few times (for various reasons), but I’ve always managed to keep pushing on. I enjoy doing what I do, and I’m glad that some people who come here get something out what what I share.
Here’s to nine years of Stupidity Hole.
