Time. It’s a funny thing. The other day I was going back through all of the old posts from 2009-2012. It’s hard to believe that this page…this diary…has been a part of my life for the last 3 years or so. Like all things, time passes. Other things become important. Other things take priority. Time becomes more valuable. And the opportunity cost of missing some pieces of life becomes too high.
I started this blog to put in writing what I couldn’t say aloud. It was my release for Continue reading
So it’s been about 3 months again. I said I’d keep the site up-to-date, but I never seem to have enough time. Oh well. It’s updated now, and surprising I have quite a few random views over the last few months. Thank to those of you that continue to stumble over this way. I’ve re-added my links to the sidebar along with some of my favorite sites and blogs.
I figured I’d keep it really simple for a New Year’s Eve post. From 1996 to 2010, I worked almost every New Year’s Eve at a bar or club doing something. The biggest were at Continue reading
Sitting here thinking about age.
I’m 18×2. I thought about this last week. I graduated high school the May before my 18th birthday. And now 18 years later, I see some of my friends talking about their kids starting their senior years…some starting their freshman year. Man, where did the time go?
In 2 years we’ll have our 20 year reunion. I probably won’t recognize 1/3 of them. Another 1/3 I see on Facebook every few days and know more about them than I probably should. The last 1/3 I see on Facebook, see around town, probably didn’t know them that well in high school to begin with, and probably would’t miss knowing what they were up to.
But it’s funny looking back at Continue reading
Wow. 6 months. There’s not even really an excuse. Well, there is. But I think you all already know. I always know what I want to write. I just never have the time to actually do the whole writing part. Kind of leaves me with a feeling like, “when I said I was ‘busy’ before, what was I doing?”
I remember saying I was busy and doing Continue reading
I’m not a huge believer in resolutions. I mean, if you can say that you want to accomplish such and such goal in 2012, why wait for a new year? Why not just start when ever you recognize that you have something to work towards? I think we all see the beginning of the year as that new chapter. We realize that we weren’t happy with this aspect or that. We say that we want to be smarter, healthier, more independent, more cooperative, etc. What better time to start then now?
My goal is to get my weight back down to a manageable level. I don’t have anything to hide Continue reading
It’s a new year, and I’m almost all by myself in this little blog space I’ve made. Hard to believe I started this thing off over 2 years ago with a bang, typing new blogs 3 times a week. Man, when did I have that kind of time?! Oh yeah. It was before family and a baby and working full-time. Last year was by far the busiest, craziest year I’ve ever had, and I learned a ton. So my guess is that this will be the “I don’t have any resolutions so I’ll just say what I learned from last year” blog. Since I’m the only reader these days, it should be easy to keep the audience entertained!
Lesson 1. The old saying, “I’ll sleep when I’m dead” Continue reading
I’m kind of glad I waited to continue these thoughts another day after seeing what all has been going on with the Occupy protesters. As much as it sucks to say it, all of the clashes with police just re-emphasized what I already believed. And as much as I want to believe, and want to remember that we don’t live in a police state (yet), it’s hard to see that when the headlines are so full of information to the contrary. Which all leads up to why peaceful protests, reform movements, etc, won’t change America.
The harsh reality is that we, as a citizenry, don’t have the power any more. When the Declaration Continue reading
