My Problem with the Social Web


There’s the long reason why I left Facebook and there’s the short reason. The short reason is that I was tired of people over-sharing for the sake of over-sharing, or having their opinions reinforced, or whatever. It became less and less my thing. I didn’t have time to keep up with it all anymore (not […]

Writing Dilemma


I mentioned the other day that I’m working on editing my senior thesis from college into a publishable book (more likely a novella, given the length). So far, I’ve taken care of the tedious work of importing it and formatting it nicely in Scrivener but I’m stuck at a standstill now. My problem lies in […]

Proposed Writing Retreat

Peace Corps, Writing

If you remember last year, I had an ambitious November. I wanted to take 30 days to make myself a better man, and I did. I wanted to do 100 push-ups and 100 sit-ups each day, and I did. I also wanted to complete NaNoWriMo, and I did. It was ambitious and by the end I was absolutely drained […]

Problems with June

Peace Corps

Summer hasn’t been up to snuff in my books. I can’t seem to motivate myself to much of what I want to do. I get out and do things often, but it seems like I also do a lot of sitting at home surfing the internet. It just dawned on me why last summer was […]

Too Streamlined


I belated Happy International Women’s Day. Also, I have a problem. I’m starting to make my internet life too easy. I’ve reduced the majority of my internet activity to RSS feeds and I’ve imported all of them into Google Reader.   While this certainly makes my life easier and saves me a boatload of time […]

There Is Good, I can Feel It


I found another reason why the internet is good. Watch the following videos: First: Then this: Finally this: Or you can keep going with this: And then this: You could keep going on and on but then I think the Dark Side starts to take hold.

Mobile internet

Peace Corps

I have this, well, problem. I live in an apartment without a phone line. While some of you who know me, know this might actually be a plus because of my hatred of phones, it actually isn’t good. Without a phone line, I cannot have a DSL hookup in my apartment (or ADSL as I […]

A return


It is official. I no longer need to go to coffee shops to check the internet. Nor do I want to go to work because I can check my email from home. I hate spam comments. A lot. Never leave comments unchecked for two weeks. It took me about twenty minutes to delete them all. […]

Glitch in the system


I managed to find some internet. Granted I had to ride all the way down State Street to find it (not that I needed to, but I had a few errands to run). I have been moved in for over a week and my apartment is still without internet. For those of you in my […]

MIA, maybe


I would like to let you know that I might be MIA in the next week or so. I move in tomorrow and it will take some time to set things back up. I also will not have internet in my place before Wednesday. It is going to be rough. If for some reason the […]
