To Be Continued…

Many people think that if they were only in some other place, or had some other job, they would be happy. Well, that is doubtful. So get as much happiness out of what you are doing as you can and don’t put off being happy until some future date.

I was reading over some of my old blog entries tonight and I was reminded of how I used to start every blog post with a quote. I’m not sure why I started doing it, but looking back I always appreciated the quotes I found. I’m trying to get my hands on some of my old blog content that was on a free hosting account that went down. With any luck I’ll get all those posts back. It ought to be pretty intersting stuff.

I remember when I used to spend hours every night trolling Deviant Art for new and cool art. This is what I found after about 5 minutes of looking around, It’s a Christmas version of the Twilight book cover. I read Twilight, and I really enjoyed reading it, truth be told. It is far from a literary masterpiece and the story is contrived, but for those of us who want to escape into a romance where everything works out in the end it does it’s job well. I was not a big fan of the movie, simply because the romance was unfortunately cut short. I really liked the way Edward courted Bella in the book, and I think they got fast tracked in the film to make room for the conflict at the end. It became an action movie instead of a romance. You can probably guess what I care about more.

Christmas is coming up, and I should do some shopping. Meh, that isn’t really worth talking about. I don’t know why I’m writing. Again. For the millionth time. You’d think after stopping and starting so many times I’d have it figured out. But I don’t. So I write when I want to write. And I don’t when I don’t.

This might have to wait until later. I feel like I have a lot to say, but I don’t know that I want to say it to the world. It may be time to start writing private posts again. In any case, to be continued…

    Are we unrelated twins? [ponders what that even means…] The reason I ask is because, even though we haven’t really spoken more than a few sentences to each other in several years, we use the same phrase at the same time in blog entries posted within a couple days of each other.

    In this post, you wrote “It is far from a literary masterpiece and the story…”, and in a post I wrote 2 days later(dec 19) I wrote “Far from a literary masterpiece, the story…”

    Is this coincidence? Is “far from a literary masterpiece” a very common phrase? Or are we somehow connected on a telepathic level. Perhaps a quantum level? At least the latter is mathematically provable ^_-

    It’s good to see you writing again Nick.
