I learned last night that I am far too lazy and probably old to get drunk on anything but wine. I was going to cut lose and get drunk last night and have a good ole time with Tina and the ladies. I had a drink and a half and just didn’t have it in me to keep drinking. I got buzzed but it melted off and took too much effort to maintain. Today, I am exceptionally tired and my allergies are going batshit. I feel old. It is a good thing I never was cool or last night would have been a gigantic blow to my ego. As it is, mostly I just feel old and sleepy.
Last night, I also realized people really don’t know what it is that I do. I don’t even understand what it is I do until I start talking about it. Yes, I’m a writer, but there is more to what I do than just writing. I love my creative writing, and I need to work on it more, but that is only a part of what I do.
I believe my greatest contribution is this blog. I work hard for this blog, mostly in way people never see. I only write three days a week, but I spend a lot of time every day working directly or indirectly on the blog. I am an internet creature. The internet constantly changes. If you want to have any success as an internet creature you have to work to understand it. You have to see what others do, keep up with trends, attempt to keep up with sites like Facebook, Twitter, Google+, and others. There is a new one called Twikle. I have no idea what it is or how I keep getting hits from it, so now I need to learn it.
I fail at Twitter, Pinterest, and Google+, but I am finally starting to win at Facebook. I think I could start winning at Pinterest with just a little work.
My old, highly uncool ass needs some more allergy medicine so I can be ready for my Minecraft date tonight. Somehow, saying I have a Minecraft date should make me feel older and less cool, but mostly it makes me feel happier. I am such a dweeb.
