You’ve come a long way, baby

I'm closing in on five years since I've had this blog, and I guess that number in of itself is a milestone. I remember when I first started this: it was during my third year of university, my grand father had passed away earlier in the year and I was closing out on what was one of the shittiest years I've ever had at that point in my life. I find myself in a similar situation this time around, but with different circumstances, one where I'm beginning another transitional period in my life. 

A lot has changed since then, but the only constant that I've noticed that seems to repeat itself is the fact that I'm still fighting through life. Which I guess is a good sign that I'm still thinking and trying to live as opposed to 'letting things happen.' I'm not running around scared about what's going to happen tomorrow, I feel as if I'm in control and compared to when I was 21, there is clarity in the things I'm actively doing.

What's interesting about maintaining a blog over a long period of time is having something to observe the change that you go through as a person. It's one thing to see it over a year, but it's another over a five year span. I've noticed my values, beliefs and morals, things that I've held onto forever, have all been challenged at some point. Some of those things I either continued to hold onto or I simply allowed it to die along the way. In the end, I'm happy with who I am as a person right now, which I guess is a blessing in of itself. I still have a lot of work to do to become the person I want to be, but I feel like I'm getting close.

Here's to another five.

New York New York

Under normal circumstances this really shouldn’t deserve its own post, but hey, I’m so addicted to this new fangled thing here that I’ll write just about anything to make a new post.

Anyways, uploaded the New York pictures my Dad took this summer, which you can see the thumbnails for on the sidebar. They look absolutely amazing, but unfortunately I couldn’t put them all into the widget as the maximum was 10. In the next few days, I’ll see to it that the rest of the pictures can be seen. Dad did good here.

On a completely unrelated note, I just can’t get enough of the new Kanye West album after a week or so since it dropped. ‘Welcome to Heartbreak’ is the new audio orgasm around here, a pleasurable sound to be sure.

Finally Running

Hi internet. It’s past 4 AM in the morning and I can’t sleep, so instead of trying to get some rest like everyone else in this house I’m sitting here getting this thing to work after spending almost the entire day trying to get it up and running. I’m happy to see that it’s finally working and I can now focus more on writing than trying to get some sort of template going. Did I say I love WordPress? Never did I envision myself using this thing after prior experience to actually hand-writing websites without a premade template. But looking back, it all seems so primitive. So instead of snubbing my nose to blog software I am embracing the future. Long live WordPress.

Papers are done and that means this long semester is finally over. Can’t say I’m entirely happy with some of the things that transpired this fall – German people hate me – but if my GPA improves or stays the same, then it’ll be easier to forget the bullshit that went on.

Trying to get my whole life back to normal. This past week I’ve been sleeping at 5 or 6 AM thanks to the massive caffeine and sugar influx my body took in on a daily basis during crunch time. It’s been almost a week after my last paper was completed and I’m still sleeping at such a ridiculous time, waking up at 2 in the afternoon. It’s fucking stupid. While some people don’t mind, I rather be awake while the rest of the world is. Reminds me of those graveyard shifts at Superstore.

Just a final note, I’m going to be taking a more casual approach to blogging now. No more taking myself seriously and separation of posts into different pages. I figure I don’t have the same amount of patience in doing that as I did back when I was a kid. It kind of sucks, but then again this way is easier to manage and less of a headache.
