Happy 8Th Birthday, TRST_Blog

How the time flies! I've had a website in one form or another since the early 2000's but this one, for whatever reason has stuck the longest, since 2011 to be exact.

I love that this site exists independently of the general pull of the web's centralising forces. I also love that for better or worse, this site reflects who I am, my interests and my style stretched through time.

There has been considerably less activity here over the past few months than I would have liked. I could blame the inter-continental move, trying work circumstances, or anything for that matter, but the truth is I've found it difficult to get at who or what I am just looking in the mirror. Harder still write at all with any sense of direction.

Yet, I have higher hopes for myself in this season of unlocking. Struggle is the start of something new. And given the relative amount of existential angst I've felt, I'm expecting a decent bounce back. (Can you tell economics was never a subject I paid enough attention too?).

Happy birthday, you big, beautiful, independent blog; here's to another year, another spring and another season of growth ahead.


Nope. Don't worry about leaving them here, instead hit me up @TRST_Blog and share your thoughts.

What is this Place?

This is the weblog of the strangely disembodied TRST. Here it attempts to write somewhat intelligibly on, well, anything really. Overall, it may be less than enticing.
