Ok, I’m getting really tired of this. I mean, who do people think they are? I am my own person. I can make my own decisions. If I choose to do something, wear something, style my hair a certain way, take part in an activity, or believe in something specific then that has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO WITH YOU!
If you’ve ever read anything of mine, which I assuming you haven’t, then you know just as much about me as the people in my IRL world. But that’s going to change soon.
Not because I am finally going “do the thing” but rather because I need to change.
And so do you.
But we’re not talking about you right now. This is about me. Don’t be so selfish. Jeez, the nerve of some people…
So there are things going on in my life, as there always are; as there are for you. And these things are finally propelling me towards the edge of touching the beginning of achieving a starting kick in the pants to pursue my goals. Eventually.
So, this is my last post of the year. And hopefully my last “I’m finally gonna do it I swear stop laughing I mean it this time” post.
Happy New Year!
P.S. – I actually have 20/20 vision. ;P
Let me start by saying this: only a Sith deals in absolutes.
Let me also start off by saying that this topic is was spurred by some local efforts to create warming centers for the homeless, and the brain-dead politicians who tried to tell these people they are not allowed to help the less fortunate members of their community.
It’s almost time for that end of the year post about resolutions. You know, the one where I talk about how I started out strong, but then let my posting slide. Where I comment on my “free writing” and “free sketching” efforts, which also started out strong… Where I mention my time spent making videos to post to YouTube, which were supposed to be for fun and just a way to get into a habit and actually make something but which soon died because I became partly concerned about COPPA and a little upset about my inhibitions that restricted me to making clip videos containing text instead of voice commentary because that’s a whole thing I don’t want to get into right now.
But let’s get into it.
There is something that I want to do. So, I pray about it. Every now and then someone says, unprovoked, that I should do it. I get ideas for it, plan it out a little bit maybe. I see articles about it, videos talking about it. People online and offline giving advice on whether or not to just do it; and most of the time concluding that you should indeed just do it.
I know the FTC doesn’t really care, but hopefully someone does. Here is my comment on the website where the FTC is “listening” to comments on the updates to COPPA.
I know I know. I’m a pessimistic downer. I have no faith in humanity. I just like to be on the other side of every argument to stir up controversy and watch the world burn around us.
