Reasons I have been neglecting List 5.

October 8, 2008

And we’re back. Oh how I have missed thee. What happened to me? Well I am glad you asked. Here are my reasons for neglecting my blog.

  1. Alabama Football – Despite popular belief, what I do does not actually have any direct bearing on whether or not my favorite football team wins the game. If you are a bit crushed by this realization it’s ok. Take some time to yourself if you need it. How did I come to this conclusion? By weaning myself off of the normal “superstitions” I had for gameday. No longer do I wear the same exact outfit every week. I am slowly but surely changing losing one piece at a time, though my lucky visor is only worn on Saturdays partially because old habits die hard. Mostly because Alabama has yet to lose a game while I have worn it. With the school I attended doing so well (especially against the Black Out/Funeral in Athens) I have been a bit preoccupied with keeping up with every possible article I could find about the team. You are of the same mindset if you understand what I mean by saying “The Dubose Years.” To those who don’t get it college football is like my girlfriend who I only get to see for a few months out of the year, and if we are getting along there is nothing I enjoy more than her company.
  2. Enlightening Myself – Thanks to one of my previous lists I was insspired to put down my computer and to pick up a book. I finally finished the Harry Potter series by finishing book 7 after owning it for more than a year. That is a long an convoluted story that is pretty mundane so I won’t bore you with the details. In addition to that I also rewatched the entire Sports Night television series. It is classic Aaron Sorkin writing with a sports related twist. Good show worth checking out if you haven’t already.
  3. Because my neighbors are too far away – Sometimes I steal things and I am not ashamed to admit it. One such item is my neighbor’s wireless Internet connection, but here’s the deal. Why would I pay for a connection when I could acquire one at little to zero cost, with the emphasis being on zero. So yeah, my neighbor’s Internet connection has been screwy lately so my Internet connection has been screwy lately. What precious few minutes I have been able to spend online has been spent expanding my reputation as a renaissance man by downloading free porn.
  4. Back to basics – Making mix CDs for my friends has been a hobby of mine ever since I first did it to try and impress a girl. Recently this hobby has gone mostly by the wayside due to my excessive video making and writing. I only have enough time for two or three obsessions at once so I made up for lost time and went overboard with finding new music for them to listen to. Hopefully those who get the CDs are satisfied.
  5. It’s mental – My mental stability has always been an area of concern for people considering some of the things I have wanted to mount on my walls in the past. Am I sane? Yes, most likely. But that doesn’t mean that I am immune to the horrible disease that plagues myriads of Americans every year. Writer’s block. “Roach, you don’t actually write anything new. All you do is recount stories that have happened to you in the past. What about that would be hindered by writer’s block?” Nothing. I just didn’t feel inspired to write. I do now. That’s why I don’t normally field questions.

Due to the lack of recent content I am going to attempt to have write a bunch of posts and have them auto post several times throughout the day. FJORD!
