I remember this place. I seem to have set it up long ago as a means to contain the entirety of my creative outlets. I posted a few entries and then promptly forgot about it. And that’s more or less the essence of what makes up me. Deciding to do things and then forgetting about them.
It’s not as if I don’t try. I guess a lot of it comes from the fact that I have so much on my plate at any given time. I decide to pick and choose like any good boy should, but like the dignity of Miley Cyrus’s future children, some things just got left by the wayside in the process. Of course, there is plenty of indication that I will forget about this blog some time tomorrow, but hey, I’ll make a go of it today.
Two things I’m currently focused on at the moment. The revamp of the Zantetsuken website and setting up my own personal portfolio. The portfolio is for work purposes, so that’s a number one priority at the moment. There is nothing more pressing than to find some way to escape out of the hellhole that is Montgomery, Alabama. My plan is to head out somewhere to the northwest, preferably Seattle, but I think I’ll take what I can reasonably get. I think at the moment I just want to get something up there, so simply is the way to go for this. I’m not going to bother trying to create something that will blow your underwear off. At least not at the moment.
Zantetsuken is another beast entirely. That site needs to work well this time around. It needs to look good. It needs to be flexible. The information needs to be organized well. I also need to resist the urge to cram as many features as I can think of down that poor site’s gullet. It’s hard enough for me as it is to come up with a serviceable design.
To be honest, even though I’ve had 2 weeks more or less to just work out everything I wanted, I kind of slacked off and did other things like sleep and play games. I don’t know if you could blame me. It’s vacation so who doesn’t want to sleep and play games? But if I really want to leave this place, then sleeping and playing games aren’t going to help me. Focus is what I need. And I’m in short supply at the moment. I’m bordering on uninstalling every game I’ve ever installed onto my machine and breaking the physical disks and the controllers too. I’d rip apart my keyboard with my bare hands but searching for porn with just a mouse presents a harder-than-usual-to-solve problem.
It’s not just the games. I’m even distracting myself at the moment writing this blog post. So what can ya’ do? I suppose I’ll find some way to work it out. Here’s to my first blog post in about a year and a half. See you next time in 2015.
