So, I've been kind of in and out on this journal, so I figured I might as well try and actually use this like I have in the past. So! That being said, I am forcing myself to write a post every single day for the next year! (Let's see how well this will turn out...)
Admittedly, there might be a little trouble updating when I go to Japan this coming January, but I'll work something out.
So... yeah, infrequent updates and all, but I've been focusing some time on my joint blog with my friends about our lives at our university. I've also been hanging around on tumblr and youtube (mostly youtube, because come on, it's Dan and Phil and Nat and Ryan and a bunch of other weirdos whom I can relate to).
But, anyway, I have some awesometacular news!
I'll be going to Japan in January!
So, yeah. I'll definitely try to keep updated, even if it just means an endless mass of photo spam. WOOT!
When I listen to some really good music, and I don't mean pop music and all that jazz (no pun intended), but really good music, like He Mele No Lilo or Summer, I can't help but feel inspired to do something. And then I remember that I'm pretty much confined to my small university because I can't drive and none of my friends have cars. Except for one, but his car is tiny and stuffed.
So then I feel like I should write, or draw, or even sit down and read one of those books I told myself I would. Except I don't because I get side tracked by the music and the awesomeness that is the internet. Then I tell myself I should check out some of the communities I joined on lj since I haven't been on the site for ages. But, like usual, I get sidetracked.
Sometimes I feel like if I make a list of what I should do daily this wouldn't happen. And then I remember that even with a list I have a tendency to get sidetracked. It's like going onto Wikipedia or TvTropes and clicking on a link that leads me to clicking on a bunch of other links, and by the time I sit back and realise that two hours have already passed since I got on the website, I'm on a page that has absolutely nothing to do with the original topic I was researching.
Sometimes I wish the internet weren't so addictive.
But most of the time I wish I weren't so easily sidetracked. I swear, one day I'm going to get into a very dangerous or uncomfortable situation because I get so easily distracted. I fear that one day I'm going to click on a bunch of links and somehow end up on a porn site because one of those links was an evil, evil little scam, and someone is going to walk in on me before I have the chance to delete it and grab the brain bleach.
Horrible, horrible fear. I don't know what I fear more: the situation above, or spiders. Possibly spiders. But it would be extremely awkward if that situation ever occurred.
