I see the upside. I am short I have always had to look up, it’s just in my nature. If I am thirsty, I don’t look at a glass and think it is half full, I think “Yes! Fucking water!” and I drink. That is the way I am; I am upbeat about most things in life, and when things are shitty I will admit it. But what I do not do is act like it has to be a permanent situation or that someone cannot take responsibility to make it better. I would say me but most people’s problems are just that, their problems and it is for them to learn to handle them and grow. My own personal problems vary from extreme to lazy, my biggest problem is a lack of time.
Lowbrow- Punk-Fucking-Rock. As a teenager, I was a loner until I wasn’t. But among the friends I made, there was still a conformist in me, the guy who had to be cool. I liked all the music my friends liked and tried not to let them know I liked the music they didn’t think was cool. MY BAD. But the crew we made was a great bunch of innocent knuckleheads just having fun skating around town and trying to meet girls. On occasion, we would get into fights, or friends would start bands that lasted a couple of months. It was great. It didn’t last long, but it was fun while it lasted. My personal taste hasn’t changed much since then, I love punk rock, not hardcore or metal, I also like pop music, I like TV shows where the characters are imperfect and life is gritty. I read and enjoy non-fiction more than fiction; which is what brings this topic to mind, Don’t pretend to enjoy things you don’t really like. Fuck being cool, be real.
Now, I get it- you don’t want people to think you are weird- too bad you are. People can tell you are weird and you only seem weirder if you are pretending to be normal. So, be yourself, and imagine people like talking to weird people, it breaks up the monotony of everyone is the same.
Anyway, I gotta go. Nice chatting.
The Novel is coming along. But it is going to take the rest of the year to finish. Hopefully, by the end of summer, I will have the first draft done. On top of that, I am working on two hopefully humorous essay-styled books.
