Just learning something new everyday, it seems like there are just as many questions as answers out there…
- Got my Deadpool mask. Very pleased with it. Bit more difficult to see out of than I had hoped, but I’m getting more used to it. Here is a picture.
- I’ve been thinking over something I’ve observed lately. I call it the “Hurry Up and Wait” mentality. Basically I’ve noticed people have a tendency to take what they believe to be a faster approach that isn’t necessarily so. I’ve observed this in a number of cases where the time gained with the perceived faster approach doesn’t necessarily gain you much time in the long run and at best it provides more idle time that could be used to complete tasks more effective and efficiently. Might try to do a longer post about this at some point, trying to oversimplify it in a blurb here. I do think people get in such a hurry they don’t take the time to appreciate the progression or the steps.
- Tuesday was Valentine’s Day. Or Single’s Awareness Day. Or Lupercalia. I personally prefer Lupercalia. Those ancient fertility rituals are really a lost art. Always seemed like such a weird day that shouldn’t be necessary. Admittedly I did spend most of last Valentine’s Day resisting the urge to send my ex a topless picture of myself with the caption: “This could have been making you waffles today, but you’re a bitch and I don’t like Waffles.” Or something along those lines. One of my more douche-bag ideas as I processed things–might still do it someday. Point is, all a special day devoted to showing our love for one another proves is how much we have left to learn.
- I think back on a lot of the projects I wanted to start, but never really got a chance to. A lot of it would have been getting in touch with a more “redneck” side. I kinda took some steps in the direction–getting the chainsaw, some odd yard projects, kayaking, etc.–but there were a few more I still have yet to really parlay into. A lot of it is more dependent on getting into a more independent living arrangement. Right now, I don’t necessarily have the space or resources for getting a dog, ATVs, archery of some kind, livestock… all the other things I want to mess around with. I have a coworker who keeps suggesting I buy a gun, but I’m pretty meh about it. I’ve thought about it before, but it has never been something I’ve been terribly excited about. Point is, there’s a growing list of things I want to try but have yet to do and I’d like to start in on that.
