Time Warp

January 14, 2009

It’s like science fiction. I have this machine at my house that steals my time. Time seems to warp or bend so that hours fly by and nothing gets done. I used to use my computer for productive things. I would pre-write blog entries to maximize [Keep Reading]

Everyone Wants to Be Joan

January 13, 2009

I don’t watch a lot of TV, but often when I watch a new program, I immediately compare it to another one that I’ve seen. Some shows are obviously built upon the successes of others. This is okay. My So-Called Life paved the way for shows [Keep Reading]

Journal Vs Blog

January 12, 2009

Last year, I wrote 250 blog entries. Do the math. 250 entries divided by 365 days in the year = a 68.5% efficiency. That number is misleading though since my goal was to write a blog entry every weekday. So let’s revise the numbers 52 weeks in [Keep Reading]

2008 Rap Up

January 7, 2009

One of the best things about the calendar flipping over to the New Year is waiting to hear the “Rap-Up.” Skillz has been dropping yearly “Rap-Ups” since 2002. The songs are always witty, well-written takes on the year that has just passed. I [Keep Reading]

Christmas Present Irony

January 6, 2009

I asked for a pay-as-you-go cellphone for Christmas. I wanted to have one to take in the car with me on my trips, just in case of an emergency. I’ve never needed a car phone before but it felt like the right thing to do. My mom agreed and got [Keep Reading]

This Point in Time is 2009

January 5, 2009

When I was a kid, this year would’ve been completely inconceivable for me. In grade school, I remember brainstorming what the year 2000 would be like for a project. We all assumed everything would be different and that the calendar flipping [Keep Reading]
