How long have you been married?

Back to work. First day was Monday. Classes went well enough. Kids weren't exactly excited to be back in class. But a month off of routine and then shoved back into it would do that to you.

It does it to me. Every year.

Eating lunch one student asks "Eric, how long have you been married?" I thought for a second and replied, "That's a secret."

"What? Why?" some of the nearby students asked. One replied "I think because that'll give away his age." Yes, another secret.

I am not ashamed of my divorce, but I haven't told many people that I work with. And I ""work"" with hundreds of students. And by work I mean teach, you who takes quotation marks the wrong way. Regardless, I don't need all the chatter. Although I am sure the "scandal" as it were would die down soon. But there would be those adults who ""worry"" about me, and I don't feel like I need that.

I don't exactly know what I want right now. I am just keeping up with my work and trying to find the ""inspiration"" that led to me releasing games again. I released one a year from 2013 to 2015. Last year, nothing. This year is looking similar, and I can't even look at Xcode without feeling... strange.

I don't know, right now. I don't. And that is the scariest part because time doesn't care. Time keeps on ticking.
