Why I Haven’t Been Blogging #1: I got married.

So I have a handful of legitimate reasons why I’ve been away from the blog for the last three months. I’ll post short retrospective posts over the next few weeks, but today’s is about the biggie…

Kelly and Nate
june twenty-eight
two-thousand eight


It all rhymes.

What can I say about it, really? It was nothing less than the most brilliant day of my life. Kelly and I have made each other better, stronger people the past two and a half years. We’ve been there when we were at our most triumphant and our most vulnerable. Most importantly, we had that “spark,” and it’s continued to burn bright for us.

Our ceremony was near-perfect, with pretty much everything falling into place. As for the reception, if I was to give anyone advice for their wedding reception I’d tell them 1.) write up a brief list of all the events you want to happen and in what order and 2.) delegate, delegate, delegate. That said, it was a lot of fun with great food (hors d’ouerves style), great music, and loads of friends and family. The only major bummer? Kelly and I worked with a dance instructor for six weeks to create a fully original dance. Our song is “Maybe I’m Amazed” by Paul McCartney and we danced to that… and then “Yeah” by Usher. It was five spectacular minutes that blew everyone away… and we forgot to videotape it. I don’t have the heart to tell our dance instructor; I can barely contain my own disappointment as it is!

Anyway, our wedding is probably the number one reason I haven’t been blogging much in the last three months. Hopefully Barry Hess, Scrawlers co-founder and of course – my best man, will forgive me. As for relating all of this back to creativity, I think there’s something in the whole wedding process for me in terms of writing; I’ll post my thoughts about that here, as well as a more thorough breakdown of the wedding day.

Stay tuned for more brief posts detailing what’s been keeping me busy these days, including the thesis reading, graduation, a promotion, and what’s happening this week – our honeymoon and my shows at the San Francisco Improv Festival and Santa Cruz Improv Festival.
