Resolutions/Revolutions

I’ve decided, nay I’ve RESOLVED to write at least one post per week. The contents of said post may vary, however the spirit of them must remain constant and that spirit is one of change and growth. These are things that I’ve tried to avoid for much of my life. Growth not nearly as much as change. You see I didn’t enjoy the stable root structure that most of my friends were blessed or perhaps cursed with. It has created a strange creature, one that thrives on new experiences, places and people, yet one that at the core, secretly wishes for something constant. I’ve decided that the only constant that one can depend on is change. It’s not an original thought, it’s been said and re-said and discussed and internalized by millions. But what is unique about it now is that I have internalized it and said it and will start to believe it. Nothing can be real to you until and unless you believe it. Choice, it always comes down to choice and I have chosen to believe in that particular idea.

On to bigger and better things then: I came up with another awesome idea for a novel during my flight to DC yesterday. It’s going to be epic in scope and tragic in content, I literally (haha) cannot wait to write it. I have a screenplay kicking around from christmas that my sis and I discussed and it’s just about perfectly maudlin and dramatic that lifetime will prob snap it right up.

In other news it’s almost time to say goodbye to 2010, good riddance to bad rubbish I say.

I’ll be back after the eve to start on my resolution of learning to love change.

Remember to keep it really, really real kids

carbs carbs carbs

As you may know, I am a type-one diabetic.

I am currently at my mother’s home in Ohio, saving cash to escape. This house is full of carbs. Complex and simple….carbs as far as the eye can see.

Well, I saved the first paragraph on the 11th so I’ll continue writing this post now: First day (night really I’m on 3rd) of work was yesterday…not bad, some cool people work there the job is wicked boring though haha.

Currently I’m pounding coffee and trying not to think too much. It’s crazy how hope can turn to fear in an instant and then go right back again. I’m jamming some Econoline Crush and trying to get back into the gloriously good mood I’ve been in all weekend/week.

This year has been an insane trip. I’ve been more sad and more happy than I’ve ever been in my life this year and it’s been one hell of a ride. There’s so much going on in my life right now that it’s a little overwhelming at times.

The happiness that I’ve been feeling lately is amazing, it’s been worth every second of pain I’ve been through to get here. And I hope that I can keep the good things in my life good and remove all of the bad things that have kept me down in the past.

Wow, just read over the post and I’ve got to say it got a little uncharacteristically serious haha I’ll strive to keep it light in the future kids.

Keep it real

fresh and new

So life was great today.
I’m lounging, ignoring my phone for the most part-except, ofcourse, for this post I’m writing (thank you unlimited data plan) and text messages from a fairy-tale princess.
I reiterate: life was grrrreat today and I didn’t need any frosted flakes to make it so.
I had, without doubt, the best sushi roll ever at hama in Columbus, OH. I def recommend you go there and get the island roll. If you don’t like it-I’ll pay for your dinner.
Tomorrow morning is going to be intense, running a 5k for funsies and then running 400 sprint intervals 🙂 it’s going to be brutal and i’m so excited about it I can’t sleep…I wish the interwebs had sarcasm brackets insert hilariously sarcastic observation about life here
In other news, I LOVE my life and I’m thinking about the air force’s marathon in sept 2011…anyone want to run it avec moi?
night kids, keep it real 🙂

accusations of ruminations…

How should I begin?

I’ll start with the typical and work my way through the atypical items on my agenda, unless of course I become distracted by something shiny, dear god that’s a huge cup of espresso….but I digress.

This is my new blog. It actually uses my name instead of some clever moniker of subtle and dubious meaning/design. I am hoping that this will become my primary account with which to write out all of my issues, advice, ideas and of course; plots to take over the earth.

Mostly these days I run. I write and I try to play some video games now and then and hang out with the people I’m going to miss when I move away.

You heard it, I’m escaping the mid-west. I need to be away from this area for a while at least. I think it’s stunting my creativity, and for a writer that is inexcusable.

In other news the novel is nearly complete, I say nearly since my laptop is dead and I prefer to write on it’s smaller, easily-managed keyboard as opposed to the archaic monstrosity I am currently typing this on.

So many things on my mind, projects I’d like to do mostly, some collaborative work with a friend, we may start an imprint; wild and crazy I know. More novels I want to write, novellas, short stories: bouncing around in my brain!

Hmmm, I believe I’ll get to it.

Keep it real.
