The Adieu. You knew this was coming.
This is it. This is goodbye. (To blogging.)
Only now do I understand both Katie and Netshade.
Only I have less to show for it. ;-)

There are more ways to have fun. Many more. Do I remove the blog? No. I've put too much useless energy into this, but it's energy all the same. I have many other projects to work on. If you ever see a new post here, it will be a great story, or someone else's story that I had to share, with proper permission.

Blogs are wonderful resources, but there are other means of writing and typing - no need even for a computer. I never use the grammar-checker, and rarely use spell-checkers anymore - when I do, I use google and could just as easily use a dictionary. All the rest regarding scripting, databases, and server-programming are things I can do elsewhere, from my own servers to those of good friends (Thank you SJ!) to my own php and cgi space at school.

Here are odd musings from the life of a young man, green behind the ears.
What emerges ?
The man who got his act together.

I'm a hyperactive individual with a slow brain. I'm smart, but not wise. I'm hip, but not street-savvy. I'm willing, but sometimes learning-disabled, and I'm certainly not well-read.
- but I will be.
I just need more time.
You know what?
This blog has sucked a lot of my time.
I'm taking it back.
Goodbye, sucker.
March Madness to April Fools: Back to Work
I got up, washed, chugged some soymilk, took some medication, harnessed the dog, (Leashes suck. I don't like pulling living creatures by the neck.) and we were out the door and under the windy April Fool's Sunshine.
I had my headphones on, listening to music from the early internet mod-tracking scene about '95-'00 .
The track on the cd changes to "Tangerine Fascination" by Necros/Andrew Sega.
(If you want to listen to it, I would've originally mentioned the Andrew Sega Shrine, but it seems to be down right now. Instead, you could try the Modarchive and search by author under Necros to get Andrew Sega's pre-2001 songs. He went commercial after that, and spread himself out on far too many cds and compilation works, in addition to his own cds. At any rate, Winamp will play modfiles, but I suggest Modplug Player)

So the song starts playing...
And I enjoy myself. I realize that regardless of my silliness, regardless of my success and mistakes, I'm back in the groove of life.

I thought about my younger years, when I sympathized with Peter Pan about not wanting to grow up ... one of my favorite songs back then ;-)

Now I realize that you never need to grow-up ... you simply need to sympathize with others, and manage your life before your life manages you.
So -
I'm back on track.
I may graduate sooner than I realized, maybe even in Spring '06.
I've got enough time now to devote to my classes and work.
I'm attempting to befriend new and fun people who actually have valid opinions far different from my own.
I'm having fun.
