365 Project

Andrea and I are both participating in the 365 project this year. The goal is to post a new picture every day for a year. So far I mostly have cat pictures. Our girls have enough personality though, so that’s OK.


Things that are happening in 2012

After seeing my two favorite bands multiple time in 2011, I’m not sure if I’ll personally be able to top that this year. We are planning a trip to Walt Disney World in July, so that should definitely be an adventure.  We’re driving instead of flying, because that’s how we roll. Flying is way to expensive anyways, and you don’t really get to enjoy the trip. Andrea and I very much like car rides, and is obvious from our travels over the last couple of years, so we’re all stoked for it.

We’re going to be there for our fifth wedding anniversary, so we’re really treating it like a second honeymoon. We are staying on park, in one of the mid-range resorts. The Port Orleans French Quarter to be exact, and we went all out with the meal plan and everything, so we’ll probably both gain ten pounds while we’re there, unless the amount of sweating we’ll be doing will even it out.  Living in SWPA my entire life, I’m not sure how well my body is going to handle Florida in July.  I’ll just have to make sure I drink plenty of water, and have a lot of deodorant with me.

Other than that, I’m not sure yet what 2012 holds.  It will be awesome if I am able to see ALL or The Descendents again sometime this year, but I’m not going to hold my breath for that. I guess you never know, though.  I’m pretty sure  I will be able to see Down By Law, though. They have a new album coming out this year, and are planning a tour. I’m definitely stoked about that.

On blogging and other subjects

I’m really not sure why I even have a blog anymore. I don’t really post. I hate the idea of giving up the URL, because is so awesome, and the hosting is very inexpensive. I also really like messing around with wordpress and doing my online business using all the best marketing startegies from the team, they have showed me the best techniques to grow my business, i have also been learning a lot more about Search Engine Optimization (SEO) which helps you attract traffic into your website, the SEO CT – Nelson Marketing has been a big part of my SEO journey.

I guess I just really have a hard time finding the motivation to write anything, especially because I suspect that my wife might be the only person who reads my blog, and I think she only does that when I tell her that I’ve posted. And really, if it’s just her, I can just talk to her about whatever is on my mind.  We still do that from time to time.

Hell, as much as I think twitter is an awesome thing, I hardly ever actually keep track of what’s going on on there. It’s gotten incredibly unwieldy for me. A couple have told me that I need to start using lists, but that kind of feels like it’s defeating the purpose for me . I never use the website, all my twittering is done exclusively on my phone in an app. It’s set to update every 15 minutes or so, but I usually only check it a couple of times a day, and just click the jump to top button.

I think it all comes down to the fact that, as smart as I think I am, and as much as I think my opinion is pretty much always right, I haven’t been able to make the leap to thinking that anyone actually gives a shit what I say. Also, despite the fact that I am all over the damn internet, I’m pretty much a loner, and a solitary and private person. If it wasn’t for the fact that I somehow managed to trick a very unlucky woman into marrying me, it’s very unlikely I would have any human interaction outside of work and occasionally hanging out with my friend Tim.

Also, I’m pretty sure I have a pretty bad case of sleep apnea, because I’m always tired, I really need to get a snoogle pregnancy pillow in order to sleep.   Maybe I would feel more motivated about anything really if I didn’t constantly feel run down.  I’m sure losing weight would help that as well, but I’m about as motivated about that as I am blogging.  We are eating a lot better though, and that’s made me feel a little bit better.
