Today is the day I look out the window and see the year's first snow. Today is the day I slay a Web Publishing paper. Today is the day I start my blog again. Today is the day I tell myself all this and more in the morning shower before falling victim (yes, victim) to a three-hour nap and waking up to an odd urge to watch Evil Dead and do that last thing on my Today is the Day list.
Because why would tomorrow be any better?
A great man once said,
Carpe Dizzem y'all.
I've been wondering what has taken me so long to start blahgging again. All of my posts thus far have been prompted by some professor or another. Blech. Disregard. Today is the day I'm not getting graded on my responses to things people relevant to my studies are certainly not blogging about.
Here's the thing. I HAVE BEEN BUSY.
I'm not whining. I am actually quite proud that I've done so much more with my time than any other semester of mine at NWMSU thus far. Between being heavily involved in NW Ad Ink, interning for a great start-up from the west coast, and just taking some all-around challenging and great classes, my time is tied up in a lot more than playing Dark Souls all day like I did this summer.
AHHHHH, EASY! DON'T PLAY THE TAPE BACKWARDS BRO. YOU IDIOT! SHUT IT OFF AND LISTEN TO YOUR GIRLFRIEND! Sorry. Evil Dead. Rising action. Cheesy plot thickens. Love this movie. Anyway.
There's a lot I've been missing out on posting here. I have been going through my life taking pictures and thinking, "this is a blog post for sure" lately. I'm telling you, the content is there. My life is interesting enough to accommodate that. The rest comes down to my motivation to become better. For awhile, I will be back-pedaling; retelling my semester while I have the time to remember it all. And hopefully before finals week comes crashing down all around me. I have a lot on my plate now. Well, the spring semester is guaranteed to be one hell of a greasy, I-know-I-shouldn't-but-one-more-can't-hurt return to the buffet line for seconds. Bring it on.
My name is Jake and I've been bad about streaming my life events to the interweb. Trying to get better.
If you're going to slap responsibilities on your plate in college, (and you should) you'd best make sure you have some oven-safe Stoneware, because Dixie paper ain't gonna cut it anymore, son.
Step up your college game. Get involved. But don't be afraid to bring some napkins.
