Ok, so, here’s the deal…

UPDATE: The deal changed. But feel free to read the original post anyway. FYI: I didn’t move. Well, I did. But I moved back.

I am a very particular person.

I like things a certain way.

I like to customize things my way.

When I want something to look a certain way, I want it to look a certain way.

I can’t stand it when I want something to look a certain way and I just can’t make it look that way.

When I can’t make it look the way I want it to look, I create it from scratch to make it my own.

That’s why we have children, right?

“My child will never behave like that.”

“I will never let my child watch so much TV just to keep them occupied.”

“I would never buy my 9 year old an iPhone.”

Well…

You say that now, but then you actually get there and you’re moving your blog to another hosting platform just so you can access the custom CSS editor and finally be able to make your site look exactly how you want it to look.

So, ya… I will be moving.

My blog, that is.

I’m going to have a custom domain name. I’ll have access to my CSS editor. I’ll even be able to edit templates and WordPress files. Hopefully, if everything goes well, I’ll be able to import my current site to my new site. That means that all likes, comments, posts, media, and links will still remain intact. I hope. I think.

I would start over, but I’ve started over sooooooo many times in the past. It’s not like I have a huge following, but I’d like everything to just stay the same. This blog won’t disappear (at least not suddenly). But, I will eventually move over to the new site.

I’ll post an update when I do. Then you all can follow me! Yay! 😀

Oh, and that child thing…

Have kids. Then you’ll see why it’s just so difficult NOT to do all that stuff. You’ll also find out why it’s so tempting TO do all that stuff.

P.S. – kids are great.

P.P.S. – no, seriously.

Perhaps…

So, I’m starting this new thing.

You see, I don’t have much to do with my time right now. Yes, I’m supposed to be looking for a job. But I decided, since I have the money, to take a week or two off for an impromptu vacation. Seeing as I’m in sunny Florida and all.

I’m also not a very outgoing person. I’m also not a very personable person. I also don’t like people (at least in large groups). I have some opportunities to go out and do things, but that’s just not who I am. In fact I literally just got a phone call about going to the park.

I’m not going to lie: I may be a little homesick. But that’s to be expected. It’s not that bad considering I have my computers with me. I can jump back into YouTube or Netflix like I never moved 4 states from home. I’m not really sad or happy, but mostly (and I’m sure the people who know me would agree that this makes sense) indifferent.

However, I am bored. A little scared at the prospects and challenges which lie ahead of me, but mainly (at least for right now) I’m just bored.

That’s the thing about being mostly introverted: I do not like to go out with people, especially in large groups, especially with people I don’t know, especially in public. On the other side I like to be around someone, even if we’re not talking or playing a game, or even paying attention to the other person.

So, I’m starting this new thing…

I have a Samsung Galaxy Note 4 phone – two models older than the Galaxy Note Explode-in-Your-Pocket 7. I have this little pen and a nice drawing app. I have decided to draw something each day. I don’t want to draw a comic, or a grand painting, or a series of doodles that are unique pieces which, when combined, form a larger story. No. I’m just going to draw whatever.

I watch this YouTube channel called Drawfee. They’re pretty good at drawing. I’ve learned a little bit from watching them. But again, this “drawing per day” thing isn’t to get good or to become a digi-art master. I’m just going to get into a habit.

Really, I guess, it’s a little bit more about expression, releasing tensions, and having another regular thing to post to Instagram. But whatever I eventually do with it, right now it’s just something I want to get into the habit of doing.

Not to boast or anything, but I’ve already gone two whole days. Straight.

So besides that, there’s this blog, and this blog, and this blog. Then there’s this Instagram, and this Instagram. And then there’s this YouTube channel. Hopefully I can get some momentum on this “drawing per day” goal and that will spill into other areas that I care about.

So, I’m starting this new thing. Actually, I guess I’ve already started.

P.S. – one post you’ll get insightful, educational, uplifting dialog. And in this one you get rambling, where I’m actually trying to pump myself up by pretending I’m talking to someone who agrees that I need to do what I’m blogging about. Enjoy!
