My thoughts about life
This is my first blog entry. I decided to try entering my thoughts on an online journal. I guess my first entry should be on how I reached this decision. I saw in the latest (well a couple of weeks ago) contests letter a piece about blogging. I checked out the blogs portion of the site and I was impressed. So many people sharing the intimate details of their lifes. I want to do my part.

This may not be the best blog entry, I know. But, I want to learn how to express myself better. I also want more people to get to know me on the site.

Today I plan on watching college football and reading during the commercials with the mute button on :). I may check some more of my e-mails and read some more online stories and try and comment on them. I try reviewing everything i read. I admit sometimes I read something and dont review it. Other times I am afraid I write a pretty crappy review. But noone has commented so far.

Well I will go for now.

I am in bad need of discipline.

Can anyone tell me where to get some?

I desparately need to lose weight and I keep checking the scale only to find that I haven't lost a single pound. I go to the gym twice a week and watch what I eat. Nothing seems to be helping

But that isn't exactly true. I go to the gym once a week and don't do much exercise beyond that. I still eat large portions. So I decided to walk 10 minutes before work, 10 minutes after work. When I eat a large lunch at home, I will eat half at lunch and then eat the other half in three hours.

I will also eat dinners slower.

As for writing. I know i do best when I spend every day writing at least some of the day. That is they only way I can get my muscles fully revved up. I haven't been doing a good job of that either.

I do good on the weekends but something always comes up during the week. Not good. I need to learn how to be more consistent during the week.

So if anyone knows where i can get more discipline, please let me know

Not much to record here. I had a lovely time at work trying to prepare for the 1st period rush. It never ends :)

I am also having a lovely time trying to write. I make a promise to myself to write a little bit each day but I keep breaking it. I only write about 3 days a week and a little time on those days. I don't know how to discipline myself and it is very frustrating

I realize that whenever I try and make myself do something, I usually fail miserably. It is like there is someone inside me who fights every effort to change him with determination and dilligence. I wish that person would apply that determination to actually changing instead of clinging stubbornly to his own ways.

I am talking about things that are good for me. Every Saturday is gym day or should be where I go to the gym and enjoy a nice, leisurely 2 hour workout, a workout that is so desparetly needed. I didn't go today because I woke up late. I woke up late because I stayed up late last night. I stayed up late last night getting into arguments on the internet.

I am passionate about subjects. I am passionate about christians (and other religions) being able to express themselves without getting mocked. I am passionate about life. Whenever anyone attacks my passions, I get rather onery. And so when I see one of my passions attacked on an internet forum, I tend to defend it rather vigorously even if I stay up past my bedtime

It is kinda silly though. Because nobody ever changes his/her mind in this forums. They just keep clinging to their own stubborn ideas right or wrong. It is not a free change of ideas as much as a I am right, you are wrong rant fest.

So anyway because I stayed up to late on this forum, I am unable to go to the gym today. Well not unable as much as I simply don't want to.

I saw the air was unuasly bright through my blinds. Curiously I opened them and saw that the ground was covered with snow. I saw no such snow in the forecast. Maybe it is a good thing that I stayed home from the gym. I could have driven in the snow but sometimes it is nice to just hang out and enjoy the white beauty, a beauty I don't get to see that often.

Farewell for now. I know I misspelled "unuasly" but I can't think for the life of me how it is spelled. It is something that I should know

Don't have much to say right now. It is a beautiful day, the sun is shining, even though it is cold.

My heart is filled with Joy.

It is enough for me

I made it through year end Closing. Well almost. ONe day to go.

What a comedy of errors :)

First, the systems don't work. I mean they had all year to get the systems ready, it is not like this caught everyone by suprise :)

Also, the stores and management keep throwing things at us. It is as if they wait to the last minute to toss something our way. It is if they hold it waiting, waiting till we begin to see the light of the tunnel and then they toss in the train of work

Well tomorrow is Friday and the last of this business. I am looking forward to a little break.

Not much else going on. Writing is going slow as usual. My creative juices aren't exactly sparking for some reason

I also got a bad review on a story I thought was pretty good. That tends to damper my enthusiasm somewhat

Whopee it is superbowl Sunday.

This used to be a big deal for me. Not anymore. With all this stuff dealing with Peyton Manning and his legacy, I just don't care anymore.

When you see a man's face on the paper for 7 straight days, you just want to throw up.

Whether or not Manning gets his legacy is truly the least of my concerns. I like watching football but I could care less about that.

If it means so much to him, than maybe he has another problem.

As much as I would like to just pretend that the game doesn't exist I was invited to a superbowl party and I promised I would come. So I will go. The problem is that they are all Colts fans.


Not much in the mood for writing and/or editing so I don't know what I will do.

I have the craziest writing style, I will admit. I work on 3 or 4 projects at the same time! Crazy? Yeah, I know.

That is just how my brain operates. I can't sit still. It is very difficult for me to stay focused on something for to long. Attention defecit disorder? perhaps.

I also read 3 fiction books, 3 non fiction books and 2 magazines all at the same time. Well not at the same time but I read a chapter from one book, then a chapter from another, then an article from a magazine and then... well you get the picture.

I don't know if my crazy style will result in production or not. we shall see

It has been a while since I updated my blog hasn't it?

There isn't much to say really. Work is a drag as we are preparing for that year end closing. I am upset that next week is our last week to get everything in. Of course that is the week that the auditors pick to hassle us about our accounts.

Who comes up with this? What sort of sense does it make to have the auditors come on our busiest week of the year? I don't know. I guess that is why I am not in management.

As far as my writing. I have finished rewriting the first 3 chapters of my hope of darkness novel. I am debating on whether to post them here or not. I read Stephen King's book "on writing" and he recommends not having anyone look at your work until you finished all the first draft. I can understand that because I won't have to constantly rewrite everything based on what critics say.

But again I am thinking on that. Not much else going on here. Back to business as usual.

Well here comes the next update that nobody reads. Why do I bother? I guess so I can post something. I can have something of myself out there for the world to see.

I think nobody reads me because I dont have much to say.

Well I have to admit my life isn't exactly an interesting novel.

The most exciting thing I did today was go to the gym. Whoopie. Well I did get a good workout in so that is always a plus

I am also fighting with Liberals in my local newspaper. I dont want to get to political here though since i dont think this is the correct site for that.

Well I will get back to reading my mail, reviewing works and commenting on them.

For those who do read. Thank you for your patience with me. Please leave a comment if you feel appropriate.

I got only about thirty minutes of writing done today. Why is it so hard? I dont know. I am concerned.

I am reading "On Writing" by Stephen King and he says that if you dont love to write than perhaps you should get into another line of work.

I dont think a love to write is my problem. I think a will to write is more like it.

I sit here and only small bits and pieces of my story come out. Then I sit back exhausted wondering why I got so little.

Is it because I get so little attention for my work? Perhaps. I dont know. I need to somehow find a way to break through and get these words down. Somehow.
