Hello? Is this thing on??? That’s what she said.
I’ve been gone for 6 months. Half a year of not coming here and sharing my stories & opinions after 5 years and 260 consecutive Mondays was one painful withdrawal for me. At first. It took a few months to adapt to a life without all things T-blawg. Except for the book of course. Is the book done? Not yet. But it’s in a place where I felt comfortable enough to come back here every Monday and to jump back on social media as well. I did a lot in the past six months. I will tell the stories in the upcoming weeks and months here. They’re good stuff, I promise. I also did some tweaks to the site too. A new look and some new functionalities that make it easier to read on your phones and tablets. “Where ya been T?!” I heard that a lot. A LOT! I do have to say it felt good to be missed. Thank you. While I was gone from here I watched the world try to tell their tales on the internet by changing my words and selling them as their own; people still tucked their hats low; #wouldwife their pics; try to share advice on dating, the struggle of everyday life, self-improvement and lessons learned. I saw people badmouth my beautiful Patriots (Super Bowl Champion Patriots by the way regardless on your Deflategate stance); watched my Instagram change into something different; I suffered through the worst Boston winter ever; all while living, learning and laughing. So… How’s the book? I’ll write that story. How are the ladies? I’ll write those stories. Plural. See what I did there? How’s Boston? I’ll tell you. What did I learn…where have I been…what have I done…. Those stories are coming.
During the last 6 months I got to focus on being the guy without the hat again. The man who lived the life that I got to write about on here when I started way back in 2009. I forgot what that was like. Guess I truly got to live the “Grown Man Shit” motto I preached about so much on here. I did some things. I made some life changing decisions. I made some mistakes. I did a lot of writing. And I learned some lessons. I just lived. So from this point on I’m going to write a little differently for T-blawg. This go around will be on a different level. Once again, I’m not the same guy telling his life story like I did 2009 to 2014. This is 2015. What I did, said and finished will stay in the past. They will stay in the archives of T-blawg forever. They built this site. Feel free to go back and look at everything I gave to this site. I’m proud of it all. Even the ugly mistakes. Going forward I’m writing like the man I am now. A wise, humbled, diverse, intelligent, successful guy with an outlet to the world. I think you’ll like this guy better. I sure do. A lot happened in the last 6 months during my time “off” from this place and I’m really excited about what comes next for me and for T-blawg. I am also going to be more diligent about what I share on social media. I think I learned to finally separate all things T-blawg from my personal life while hopefully still being able to entertain you all T style of course. I have one hell of gap to fill between December 1st 2014 and June 1st 2015. I think you all know me well enough to know that most people would only have a few stories to share from a 6 month time span. But not me. Plus writing the book made me do a lot of reflecting on my life and all things T-blawg. Things are going to get interesting, I promise.
Over the course of 5 years writing T-pisodes became a part of my everyday life. Just like getting up and going to the gym. Eating my 5 meals a day. Drinking 2 gallons of water daily. Going into the office. Writing my scripts. Writing the book. Going to Patriots games. Traveling the world. Spending time with friends and family. Enjoying my city of Boston and everything it has to offer a guy like me. And dating. Oh yes, dating. Then I stopped them. I stopped the T-pisodes. Not all that other every day stuff. But just the T-pisodes. I stopped T-blawg. I stopped all things T-blawg. I spent the last 6 months of my life without T-blawg and so did all of you. Part of me is sorry for doing it and another part is extremely glad I did. Because I did a lot. I changed a lot. And now I’m back. Refocused and because I still have more to say. So… Every Monday I WILL BE back here doing what I do. The Facebook page is back on. I’m back on Twitter and I’ll be tweeting again. And while the Instagram was never turned off, you may want to check it out. My ‘gram game is on fire! That’s what they’re saying in the streets anyway. Streets be talkin’ you know. Like I said, I’ll fill in that 6 month gap. I promise. I’ll throw in a bunch of other cool shit too. Like my life, I made some changes to the site. If this is going to be like T-blawg 2.0, then I need to give you all new reasons to keep coming back every Monday. And trust me, I will.
Damn, it’s great to be back! Let the fun begin. Again.
Until next time. Always take it there.
