I'm guessing it will get better and more interesting the more I do it, but then again it might not.
I guess you can really only have writers block if your are a writer. I write stuff but not consistently enough to consider myself a writer. Just another idiot with ideas in his head that sometimes make it out of his head onto some external format. Paper, conversation, this blog, an email, etc. So what the hell is my problem with keeping up with this blog?
Motivation, that must be it. I’m just not motivated enough to do it. What would motivate me?
Maybe if I knew people were reading it and “hungry” for my next entry?…
Maybe if I knew that it would lead me somewhere?
Maybe if I were doing something exciting to write about?
Maybe if… I don’t know.
However, I am writing something right now, so there’s that.
I bought a new warm jacket today. My girlfriend, Amy hated it. She said I looked like a security guard or something. Guess I better return it. Apparently I don’t know how to shop for myself anymore. Damn.
Yeah, so clearly I can’t keep this up very well. Just write a little something every day and what have I done since the first blog - nada. I did think about writing something a few times but it never happened.
I’ll try harder next time. Maybe I’ll even add a picture or something. Whatever.
About a week or so ago I decided that everyday I should write something, with or without a picture, that would somehow represent that day. It was my idea to do it every single day. Today is my first attempt at this “project” I’ve set up for myself. It is neither original or inspiring it’s just something to do. I could do it on a piece of paper in a notebook but being able to publish something gives me more satisfaction, I think, plus I don’t have to buy a notebook. The chances of anyone actually reading this is pretty damn slim so I might as well be writing it in a notebook. I guess I’m just better at typing things out than jotting thoughts down on paper. I can type faster than I can write. Any one of these reasons will be acceptable as to why I am putting this in a blog thereby making me a blogger. Something I’ve never aspired to be.
So I’m thinking this will be some kind of experiment for myself. I don’t know where, if anywhere, it will lead me but here we go!
Today is election day and I voted for Obama. I really, really, really hope that he wins. I’m sick of the way things have been going in this country. I’m not proud to be an American, it makes me feel like shit when I travel. People hate US. I’m hoping that he can make change happen and restore some respect to this country. We’re not all stupid Americans only most of us.
I had the great pleasure of getting to use the electronic voting machine today. It totally sucked and took me at least twice as long to vote than if I got into the box with the big red handle. That was actually what I was looking forward to. It feels so satisfying to pull it once you cast your vote. The damn machine wouldn’t even accept my ballot sheet the first two times I tried to feed it in. You had to really push on the touch screen for it to register. I can only imagine how much more difficult that would be for someone who’s old or dumb or both.
I’m tired, bored, and going to wrestling tonight. I have no idea what to do with my day tomorrow aside from clean the apartment. Where can I find work and when will I find it?
