It’s the most wonderful time of the year again, guys. Now that Thanksgiving has passed us by we can actually start the festivities.
Fuck this shit, this survey is horseshit. New Yorkers getting the shaft.
After reflecting on the elegance of the greatest city on Earth; let’s reflect on this.
— stumbled back on this gem from almost two years ago, still a great piece.
— Jamie and Jeff’s Birth Plan.
The longer I live up by Dartmouth, the more I find less people that will get the joke and more people that will consider this to be the Best Birthing Plan Ever.
Perhaps if they would have let me renew my subscription for longer terms than just two years, they would be able to court advertisers by showing how many captive eyes they have locked up for extended terms. I get it though, but they better not go back on that whole “42 issues” thing now that they’re going to be halving that number. I most recently paid for 84 issues and expect to receive all of those for that price.
I was just about to launch into some long diary-esque entry about how great it was to have my mom here visiting the past three weeks, and how psyched I am to start planning the wedding, etc etc blah.
But thats not what a weblog is about anymore, right? Weblogs are about information? Community? Sharing and caring. Deadjournal is for diary entries.
SO, MAYBE, re-calibrating the ratio of personal diary type updates to more pictures you’ll like and articles you want to read and music about Christmas. Thats what this December is all about.
Think of it like a pre-New Year’s Resolution.
Maybe everything that’s wrong with us needs more than 12 months sometimes, right?
I haven’t posted a real ass word post to this weblog in nearly four months. I used to be a lot better about that and now I have nothing left but to sit in this Starbucks with tears streaming down my face at my considerable failure.
Rather than a big fat dump of all the things going on in my life, how about I just throw down some quick bulletpoints and we move on.
~ Last December I took a job that I don’t necessarily love in order to stave off the cabin fever of being up in the great white north without somewhere to go.
~ Two weeks ago I made the decision to scale back the amount of time I spend at said job in order to refocus on the more creative things that make me happy.
~ Two weeks ago I also got engaged.
~ Yes, I am scared shitless that I have a wedding to plan for and less money coming in so I will have to look more to my savings.
~ I am however excited for the opportunity to find something that truly fulfills me and gives me the means to flex my actual brain muscles.
~ That said, if you need freelance writing I am availble.
~ I have printed out a physical copy of my book and will be going through it with a fine toothed comb on the hunt for any way I can improve it.
~ I now realize none of these are bulletpoints and I also I don’t know what the squiggle is called.
~That is enough for now, but I do plan on posting to this with a significant boost in both regularity as well as quality. Time to bring my A-game in this beotch.
Screwed this gem from @bestmadeco in the wall next to the front door, a little something to think about every time you leave the house.
