Little Trophies

This place is a relic, caked in layers of dust, untouched and neglected, almost ruined.

But I could never let it die. Every so often I update a plugin, mark a comment as spam, but there was never a strong draw to come back, knock the cobwebs off and let it know it was loved. I’ve renewed the domain annually, paid monthly for hosting but providing content became a chore. But this was my baby: I’ve always felt a little proud of this site. Bookmarked at the top, a constant reminder of who I was at an interesting time of my life. I put a lot of work into maintaining it, even when I never posted. And so I kept it like a little trophy, just sitting on a shelf.

As turbulent, hectic and maybe… a little fun the life of a twenty-something can be, I figured it was time to let it all go, start fresh and forge forward. I’m now in my thirties and I’m not the same person as I was in my 20s. If I’m not the same why should I hold on to this reminder? Well, I’m not and with a couple of clicks and dropped tables, it was all gone… Time to clear the shelf for new trophies.
