Get this: I was sitting in my chair, minding my own business and *SILENCE NOISES* the power goes out. So, it seems like it’s the perfect time to put my Nintendo Switch to use.Continue reading
This holiday season I’m trying something different. Since I never shave anyway I decided that No Shave Novemeber didn’t really change my typical routine at all. There was no challenge to it. And challenges like Inktober, which I tried to take part in, don’t provide any reason to draw every day, no incentive to continue, and no consequence for missing a day (or like myself, stopping at the last week and never catching up because oh well no big deal maybe next year).Continue reading
2019 In Memoriam: We Hardly Knew Me
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
I have really let things slide…
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.Continue reading
New Year’s Resolution
I almost missed February!
If you read my last post, you would notice that it was posted at the end of January, however I expressed my grief that I was slacking on my resolutions… while also talking about time travel.
You see, I posted that last post in February, but back scheduled it to January.
My resolutions (not really “New Year’s” resolutions) have been to complete a couple of certain tasks on a regular basis:
- Read the Bible every day (slacking on that…)
- Post the Bible Verse of the Day from the YouVersion Bible app ( mission accomplished on this front)
- Draw something every day and post it to Instagram (um…. I was doing this regularly… but… idk, something happened and now I don’t)
- Post to WordPress at least once a month (doing OK at this, if we ignore the back-post from “January”)
- Keep up with YouTube (yes, I have a channel. Right now I post Pokemon Go updates, but would like to do other things… what do you think I should do?)
There’s also a comic I draw once every other year… at least that’s what it seems like.
Before this post continues with the shameless self-promotion theme, let’s switch it up.
How have you been?
Are you doing well?
Are things going well for you?
I’ve had a rough couple of months. Lost some loved ones. A friend’s family lost their mom. My car got totaled by a rat…
OMG did I tell you that?!
My car got totaled by a rat.
It crawled it’s way into my car, chewed through the ventilation system, chewed up plastics, wires, and my back seat, and then died… in the car.
Insurance totaled it.
I got my money back, so that’s good.
Anyway, it’s been rough.
But I think I can make it work. Maybe one of my little hobbies mentioned here will take off? Maybe I’ll become the next big YouTube sensation? Perhaps I’ll begin my comic again and it will get lots of attention? Just maybe, I’ll write everyday and subscriber numbers will skyrocket and I’ll become the hottest blogger in the Midwest!?
For now I’ll just stick to making frozen custard treats.
I work at a Frozen Custard shop. It’s really *snickering* cool!
P.S. – maybe I can get a job writing bad puns?
One Last Thing
The following year is sure to be exciting for me. So, here is one last post (out of the many I have posted /s) to end the 2015 year.
The hope is to start anew next year. To bring new life to old passions. To renew passion in old joys. To create joy in the lives of others.
But most importantly, to finally learn how to let go of the past and move onward to tomorrow. That’s my only resolution: To be better than I was.
And eat less junk food. Because, you know, diabetes and cancer. I hear those are bad.
Peace from the past! Enjoy today before it turns into tomorrow.
P.S. – I’m so happy I finally learned how to spell “tommorrow” correctly, without needing spell check! Yay me!
