I need a time-out

In case you haven’t noticed already, I haven’t been very actively blogging of late. Actually I haven’t been quite active doing anything creative lately.

I guess part of the reason for that has to do with stuff that’s been going around in my head for a while that kind of needs my attention. Some of this involves what a management guy would probably call “reorientation of short-term goals” and includes (though not limited to) a possible change of career, or geographical relocation, rethinking on continuing school, maybe taking up paid-writing more seriously, getting married, going bungee-jumping and so on, although not necessarily in that order.

And the other thing being the fact that I leave on a 2week vacation shortly and – in the true style of all my vacations – stay as far away from computers as I can while on vacation.

So I’m guessing this is probably the last post in a while, and thus effective right now, I take a break from blogging in pursuit of some, if not of all, of the above.


p.s.
In case you’re wondering, no I am NOT quitting my blog, and The Square Circle will continue to be online. Like I said, I’m on a break – not on retirement.

all the best bro!!!
You do need all the break...
But never ever quit blogging... of course when you consider paid writing as a possible career option, I am sure you wont think of quitting blogging :)

hey,
it'd be really ironic if u quit blogging after writing a post tht encouraged me to restart again...
btw, have a great vacation...i agree, keeping away frm the computer is the best way to enjoy one...

Back home for a while? Consider visiting office once!

Will be glad to see you :)

To each and every single person above, who took time off to write comments, I sincerely thank you; and I'm sorry I haven't been blogging much lately.
But like I said, I've got something else going on here.

@Rayees
Thx bro...and I wish *you* the best too!

@Firas
Woah man, you still blog? I actually thought you quit (and took you off my blogroll sorry!)

-=A.R.N.=- said...

@issam
Thx and don't worry; quitting blogging was never on my mind. But I do need to work more on that paid writing career - and I don't mean just Paid Reviews. :)

@Mohammed Musthafa
Yeah, I see what you mean; that would be the ultimate goofup.


@Prasanna
Hmm, not too sure man.
I'm only in chennai for 5days and have a lot on backlog. Will try...

@Aersh
Dude, did you check out the new Macbook Pros? Mindblowing!
That, and the price too. :P

-=A.R.N.=- said...

@Lena
Don't worry Lena, I'm not gonna quit: At least, not after I wrote that earlier post ridiculing everyone who did ;)


@A New Beginning
Hey hi there,
And welcome to The Square Circle!
I'm hoping to enjoy my break as long as I can.
Thx for your comment!

Ela said...

Getting married heh?!

(u cannot deny since this was also in ur list of 'to do things'!)

have fun then!

-=A.R.N.=- said...

@Ela
Yeah ;)
But the way things are, I think that's probably the last thing on my list...after I bungee jump, cross the atlantic on a rubber boat and visit the South Pole.
