Happy New Year. Started this year with a bang. Leave me alone til next year.

Looking back, I realized how amazing 2010 was for me. I ended it celebrating it to two people I met that year that have grown close to me. I reconnected with my old friends, and finally got to hang out with them very often as I always wanted during high school. I made lots of new friends. Too much I think. And I also learned a lot more about myself and who I need to be in order to get the things I want. Which comes my next topic: Resolutions

Every year, people tend to typically make somewhat unrealistic resolutions that last for like maybe a month (Gym prices will be pretty jacked up for a while, be careful!), and by the end of the year we make that same resolutions. I succeeded at the one I made for last year (get back old friends), so now it’s time for some new ones.

1. Be more extroverted this year than last. So in order words say a word or two in a public setting.

2. Learn CS5. Prefferably have someone teach me the ropes of most of it, because video tutorials and books are a bit nerve wracking. PLEASE SOMEONE FOR THE LOVE OF CTHULU TEACH ME THIS!

3. Finish one of my comic ideas. As well as find an illustrator to draw it, we will save “Getting published” for next year maybe.

4. Get this blog up and running. When I say that I mean, write more posts, get more readers, find new things to talk about. Make this blog look sharp, for lack of a better word. I’m out of school, I feel this is like my only way of not being a slave to the machine of working.

5. Go to a state I’ve never been to/ Road trip. I’m trying to aim for making taking a train to Chicago one day and getting a hotel for the weekend to see Best Church of God as well as some other troupes. Yes, I am that determined to see their shows.

Do you guys have any specific ones?


Because I never say thanks enough

Well for starters Happy Thanksgiving. This was never really a holiday celebrated growing up, so I’m not greatly enthused about it as my social circle is. I am though thankful for many things, and though I wont be at any dinners to say this, I figure I’ll say them online. (P.S. DO NOT let this be the only time you feel to be thankful for what you have, and if you do, then you clearly need to re-asses your life!)

I’m thankful that despite some downfalls of the time, 2010 has been a most excellent year for me to remember.

I’m thankful for the time and a half I’ll be making at work today.

I’m thankful for the amazing clothes Threadless puts out every week, thereby strengthening the awesomeness that company is.

I’m thankful for some businesses being open for those that can’t afford to have a Thanksgiving dinner or will be alone on this day.

I’m thankful for the many people that’ll be at homes today, so I will not run into much traffic going to and from work.

I’m thankful that I am weeks away from graduating and getting a college degree (even if I’m not stopping to attain a higher one).

I’m thankful for the low temperature that’s coming pretty soon. (break out the winter clothes baby!)

I’m thankful for the farmer, to the laborer, to the grocery store all putting a hand in the food I will eat later today.

I’m thankful that even though I’m getting spam in my mailbox today, the majority of them had the decency to say Happy Thanksgiving!

I’m thankful that I’m still alive and kicking enough to be around friends.

I’m thankful for the friendships I’ve made within the year, and for the ones in the future.

I’m thankful for the people who are actually reading this and other entries(though some feedback would be nice from time to time).

I’m thankful for being able to freely flow my thoughts through writing, whether it’s through here or the stories I write.

I’m thankful for the friend who wants me to talk and actually does listen.

Bring on the noms gobble gobble


I’m thankful for all my friends, because if it weren’t for them, I would be jobless, homeless, and probably holding up a sign on the street asking for money (and quite frankly, I doubt I can pull off being a World War II veteran)
