I really don’t know anything ready to talk about, but in an effort to show that I am indeed sincere about posting often, I’m forcing myself to sit and write for a timed period, kinda like an in-class essay. Let’s see what this leads to…
Life right now, honestly, is as close to perfect as it’s been in a long time. There is one key component missing that I’ve been reminded of many times over this past week, especially at dinner the other night, but overall things are going great. And it’s not just the big stuff (such as, say, a major thesis!), but it’s as if even the small, insignificant things have been falling my way lately. I guess I’m finally cashing in on some of that good karma I’ve been saving up lately. Hell, even the future looks amazingly bright. I got to see my family and friends over Thanksgiving break and am about to see them all over again later this month. By this time next week, I’ll be finished with school for two months. In a little over three weeks, I’ll be snowmobiling in the mountains around Lake Tahoe and January has nothing in store for me but relaxing and trying to get all my old high school friends together one last time before I…..well, I’m saving that for another post =)
And to top that all off, Shyzer’s daily readership is at an all-time high. Have I mentioned lately how much y’all kick ass? Because you really do.
I’ve been e-mailing a lot of people lately, especially people I haven’t talked to in months or years. Y’know, sort of in an attempt to see where they all ended up and what all they’re doing now. It just kind of came to me after surfing Facebook a few days ago and seeing so many people from my past. (Yes, I joined over a month ago and am totally addicted. My favorite feature? “Poking” all the hot girls I see. =) So I just started e-mailing not only people I saw on there, but other people as well. Old teachers, old professors, old neighbors. I tracked down one of my old professors and waited outside his classroom the other day simply to see how he was doing and let him know how much of an impact he had on me. I’ve already made plans to have lunch or dinner in the near future with a handful of old friends I haven’t seen in years. It didn’t dawn on me until just the other day why I was doing it all. I just want to make sure we all have a proper goodbye. I hate that unresolved feeling I have with some people, that feeling of “do they really how I feel about them?” I just want to make sure that everybody in my past who I’ve drifted away from knows they had an impact on me. And I guess this is just the best time to make sure they know, before they all scatter out even more than they have and before I…well, I promised I’d save that for another post.
Okay, my time is up. So now do you see why it takes me a long time to write posts for Shyzer? When I try to throw something together in an hour or two, this is what I get. When I take a few more hours to polish it and then sleep on it and polish it some more, I actually get something decent. Fellner, you have no idea how much I envy your speed writing abilities.
And with that, I’m off to finish a new subsection for Shyzer. Look for it over there on the left hand side of the site by the end of tonight!
