So, as most of you may have noticed, this blog has been very personal, trying to tell stories of my life while getting into very little detail when it comes to the nitty gritty.
There have been a few attempts to promote stuff and criticize things, most of them insignificant, in fact, scratch that - none of them really mattered.
But that's ok, this is supposed to be a journal, you know, "Dear Diary" and all that crap. Except all y'all get to read my life. My life is an open online-book (lame, Dags), except the parts I set to private for my eyes only.
So...let's get a few things outta the way.
First, since this blog usually stinks of my love life, let's get that outta the way. I am still single, I'm not dating anyone, nor do I plan to...it's kinda hard coming from what I last went through, but that is totally my fault.
Sometimes the thought of her being the one that got away enters my mind (she's definitely of the "The One That Got Away" caliber), but, being the stubborn boy that I am, I try not to just mope around about it. It was a huge loss, could've been something something great. Life-changing, in fact. But, ya' know, I screwed up. I hope, no, I think, nay, I TRUST she's happy now.
In the meantime, I'll be doing my thing of doing a whole buncha other things, but this time, I hope to make something outta myself from them.
Now that that's outta the way, I've recently seen glimpses of just how much crap there is out there. Take for example, a lit major who thinks that literary criticism, in a nutshell, is rejecting "your" reality and subbing it with "our" own and whining in behalf of people who don't understand our whining through our writing. Uh...NO. Criticism studies literature, stems from literature then dictates literature via it's criteria, which is originally formed from the literature anyway. Of course, that's just one point that could be refuted. The point is: literary criticism is not just whining and if you could capture it in a nutshell, that's not how you go about it.
Why do I mention this particular example? Well, first, it's crap. Second, seeing that crap made me remember that I wanted to start my own serious blog (outside of LJ) to talk about particular themes and not be filled with love life stories that are fully of generalizations because I rarely get into specifics.
I haven't found the time though, in between trying to catch up on my very lagged PS2 gaming, DVD watching, NBA Games scheduling, band rehearsing, guitar-practicing, song-writing, melody finding, vocal-range-experimenting, Facebook-updating, car-maintaining, events-sideline-project-ing, articles-yet-to-be-written-incubating, etc.-ing. So, maybe this is a good place to start practicing blogging smart. Make the errors here, and save myself some trouble later.
Hence this post.
So, I guess I'll be visiting more often, LJ, not to tell you about my latest love life adventure nor to rant about how life gets me too busy or too bored, none of that crap.
The next time you see me, I'll have something to say about the world. Hopefully you'll find that interesting.
Because sometimes Facebook status updates and Tweets (especially Tweets) just don't suffice to say how you truly feel.
