Bloggin' Ain't Easy

Blogging sounds like an easy way to express yourself. A simple outlet through which release your thoughts and opinions to the world. The question is this: how much can you say before your readers start treating you differently? Sometimes I just want to empty my head. I want to post exactly what I feel and exactly what I'm thinking. I used to do just that, on MySpace. I posted a few blogs that I emptied my heart into. It felt good to type it, but I always second-guessed it. It's possible to say too much.

I just don't know what is enough and what is too much. I believe a lot of that comes from not knowing who reads it. I had a lot of readers on MySpace. Well, it felt like a lot to me. Now I have, maybe four readers I know of. Four people who have talked to me about my blog, online or off. I assume I have that many readers who haven't spoken to me about it. I'm confident that I would have more readers if my posts were more personal. But, honestly, I'm afraid to put my business out there again. I'm afraid to step on toes and let out secrets. I keep a lot inside. A lot. I would love to express it, but I'm not sure I would like to express it to you. I know what I want to say, but the thought of certain people reading it... I just don't know.

I'm not entirely sure blogging is for me.

We'll see what happens next.

Failure Is Not An Option

Do you know what it's like to be standing face to face with an obstacle, confident beyond doubt that you cannot pass it, weighing the pain of failure against the regret of giving up?

They say people don't change. If a guy doesn't keep his room clean by the time he's 20, he's not going to have an immaculate house when he's 40. We get set in our ways. But what if "your way" is to ignore the severity of the situation? What if "your way" is to tell yourself that you'll succeed later? What comes next? When time runs out, how do you surpass an obstacle you've just been staring at all of your life, knowing you've never truly tried?

I just felt like drawing attention to that dreadful feeling you get when you realize time is running short, and you haven't done anything. When you realize that you're on the starting line and everyone else is achieving your dreams.

Maybe you don't even deserve it. Still hurts.

At some point, you have to stand up and take what you want.

Take

Freaking Candy Bars!

Why does every good candy bar have to come with 8 crappy ones? I saw "3 Muskateers Mint," today. Mint! Next time you're in the store, count the Reese's. There are millions!
_______

Britney Spears' new track, "Womanizer," is gonna be amazing. Keep an ear out for it.
_______

I've been kinda hooked on Amazon.com's "Used & New." It's kinda like eBay without PayPal. The selection isn't so great, but it's mad cheap. Thing is, I'm usually all about supporting the record industry, but recently I've been really into buying used music. I'm starting to think it's just my collector's mentality that keeps me buying CD's these days, not moral convictions...
_______

You know who I can't stand? T-Pain. No talent. I'm not just talking about that vocoder crap, either. Everything the man touches turns to crap. Then he gets praised as a genius.
_______

The new Pussycat Dolls album is gonna suck...
_______

Michelle Rodriguez has returned to acting. Score!
_______

Am I wrong for opposing the redistribution of wealth? Like, entirely?
_______

Typing blogs isn't easy. I guess that's why I typed another rant. This post is entirely uninspired. I'm only typing it because I haven't posted in a while. I'm afraid my four readers might forget about me.
_______

If, some time in the past, or future, I post something you really like, feel free to share it on Facebook or something. Despite tonight's weak effort, I am trying to get some exposure.
_______

Also, if you're reading this on Facebook, don't forget to click "view original post," to check out my real blog. It's snazzy.


Peace.

Chicks Are Retarded

Why is it that a man can't tell a woman what he's thinking? Why is it that men are forced to play this ridiculous game of cat and mouse? Do they not realize that some of the nicest, most considerate and caring men just aren't good at these sports?! Sorry ladies, hoop-jumping's just not my bag! You ladies need to learn how to take the truth. 

"Hey, you're gorgeous. Unfortunately, that's all I know about you. But I'd love to know more. Let's hang out."

If that's not a good line, I'm effing screwed. Because it's truth and it's all I've got. I don't understand women. They love to make things complicated. They force men to play these retarded games. We have to say the right things, give off the right "vibes." 

What a wonderful world it would be if a guy could walk to a girl, tell her exactly what he's thinking, and start a conversation. 

NEWSFLASH: GUYS TELL GUYS EXACTLY WHAT THEY'RE THINKING. GUYS DON'T FREAK OUT. Hence, chicks are retarded. 

Chicks aren't retarded. If you get pissed off by my title, I'll know you didn't read it.

Really, what is it that women don't understand? I realize that girls have a reputation for being more "emotional." I'm not going to say whether or not it's true because they don't talk to me very long. But I will say that you're not going to kill a man by actually telling them that you like them. You don't have to smile a certain way, look deep into our eyes or flip your hair a certain way. 

Just friggin' say it!

ALL I WANT IS WOMEN TO SAY WHAT THEY THINK, AND LET US DO THE SAME.

Young Americans. I Urge You, Don't Vote!

You'll ruin it for everybody. The lower the education level, the more liberals. There's reason for that.
Zing!



Wow. A lot has happened since I made my last post...

So... McCain chose Sarah Palin for his VP candidate.

I didn't see that coming... I don't know too much about her, but then again, who would? The Governor of Alaska? Whatever it takes to beat Barack... I hope picking a young (looking) VP candidate will help break the stigma of being an old man. My political science teacher made good point: Making history by voting in Barack should have less appeal now that voting in McCain would "make history," too.

I hear she gave a great speech last night. I've only heard bits and pieces, but I'll definitely check out the whole thing tonight.

I met a really cute girl at lunch like, last week. Well, she actually came and sat with me. Being the socially inept idiot I am, I left lunch that day without even as much as her full name. Sometimes, I even amaze myself.

It shouldn't be so hard for me to meet people. I'm just so bad at it. I don't know how to talk to women. And I'm told I "always look sad." Maybe that's because I don't know how to talk to women!

Whatever. It seems like the guys that are good with women are total jerks. They treat women like crap, and women love it. We all know those guys that had four or five different girlfriends is high school. They may be selfish and disrespectful, but they know how to get dates. Whatever happened to using your powers for good?

If a guy is charismatic and attractive enough to get a bunch of women to go out with him, he ought to be using that to find a wife. Instead, he just uses it to "chase the cat - bow wow wow yippie yo yippie yay, bow wow yippie yo yippie yay." That's the worst part.

I finally hooked up the cable in my room. I've gone weeks without television, and I've hardly missed. But, Terminator is starting back Monday, so I had to get ready. The Office returns September 25th.

Michael Jackson's been working on his new album for years. He's never disappointed me, but I'm starting to get nervous. He's been working with Ne-Yo, Akon and Will.I.Am - all MJ wannabes. What's next, Justin Timberlake? Come on, MJ, you're better than that.

I hate Geology.

I've been eating a ton, lately. New Todd is awesome.
