Here's a really random little post. I know I've been gone forever, and because of that I'm trying to cram a bunch of stuff into a "what I did for Christmas break" report. However, that is taking longer than I had hoped since it;s actually a pretty insane and confusing story. So for now, here's a little chunk I broke off the bigger post. I'll post something real in just a little while. for now, here's something that made me laugh.
Ever wonder if you've peaked? Like maybe you've done the best you can do and it might be time to just shut up and eat a hot pocket while you watch Louis C.K. videos over and over. After being away for a few days, I recently happened to click on that little bastard tab that says "Stats." For us bloggers, this button should be labeled "you're net worth as a human being" or something along those lines. Sometimes I don't check my stats for days at a time, sometimes I just sit there and hit refresh for hours. But the other day I clicked on it, and when I went to "all time," I actually had to chuckle out loud to myself.
Please understand I'm not trying to bitch and whine and throw a big poor me festival here. I'm not into that and it bugs the shit out of me when people go on and on about not getting the recognition they deserve. But you gotta admit it's kind of funny. Obviously, this is partly because I was a huge bum and didn't write a damn thing over Christmas, combined with the fact that most people are spending time with family over the holidays and not reading the meaningless ramblings of some dude on the internet. Still, it's sort a poignant visual metaphor. Since the blog is relatively new, over the course of years that bar will go up and down and hopefully that will not be the all time highest point in my interweb jabbering career. Which is why I had to post it before it changes and becomes less funny and/or sad.
