So, here we are. It’s come to this. Due to the demands of two people (one especially pushy!!) I’m going to update this regularly now. Not that I haven’t tried to start blogging on a regular basis… I have dozens of half-written blogs, all ridiculously outdated (did you know Obama is President, now?) and another 50 or so ideas written in my idea notebook (iPhone), one day I’ll get around to them. The problem I have is that I’m a notoriously self-concious writer, I never like anything I write and I’m never quite “finished” with it. The only things I actually finish writing and turn in are assignments for grades and even then those assignments are never done, they’re ripped from my hands! After which I spend the weeks or days or hours waiting for my paper (which I’ve convinced myself is a failure) to return.. only to look at the high final grade perplexed and confused, convinced that it must be some sort of mistake.
One of the reasons I’ve latched on to Twitter is that it’s so much easier to get all my blog ideas out of the way without having to worry about actually writing sufficient content (it is called micro-blogging after all) the downside being any idea larger than 140 characters is truncated or abandoned in an attempt to not bog down my feed (or my poor followers, they already suffer enough by following me).
I labour so much over everything I write, not just school work but texts, Twitter Posts, Status Updates trying to make everything “work.” 9 times out of 10, if you see me on my phone, I’m generally trying to make the same damn Pocahontas joke work despite the fact that nobody is going to understand it besides me. So, anyway, where was I going with this?
So, this is what should have been about my fantastic Geology class and my AMAZING field trip to Cave Of The Winds, down in Manitou Springs, Colorado, but I forgot my camera cord so therefore I have no pictures and therefore no visual aid to go along with my blah-blah-blah. So, this is what you get.
So what I’m going to need to actually keep up with this, is constant nagging, so (you know who you are) keep pushing me! I can’t promise it’ll always be good (or that it will ever be good…) but it’s a start. Give me topics! If you have a stupid animation or comic question you need answering, ask away. It’ll give me incentive to keep going. ALSO, help get me to start doing more art and I’ll throw that up here too.
