There aren’t many things in this world I can’t stand. I can take Elvis…thanks to my dad’s training. I can take screaming, crying little sisters. I can take concussions*. One thing I cannot stand…my kryptonite if you will…is routine. We’re all prone to falling into the slaving habits…“woke up, fell outta bed, dragged a comb across my head”…etc. and maybe this is why I can’t keep a relationship together. Whatever the case, after being with or doing something so long, it becomes disinteresting. I heard somewhere that Da Vinci never finished a large majority of his paintings–he just got bored with them and moved on. And I feel the same way about a lot of things. It’s the reason I can’t keep a journal and the reason it’s a miracle I’m continually blogging. It’s why I never finish crosswords (that, and I don’t know half the answers) and the reason that if a school topic doesn’t interest me, it becomes very hard for me to pay attention and learn. [MATH!] Whether or not this situation has a remedy, I don’t know, nor do I particularly care. It’s just something about me that I can learn by writing it down. Hank touched on this in one of his bulletins yesterday and I don’t think he could have said it any better. Just how he said it escapes me. (Yes, I’m aware that those sentences almost defy themselves.) He mentioned that it only takes one person to say something nice in a comment, picture or otherwise, to completely boost your self-esteem and make your day. It could be that special person in your life, a good friend, or even better as it sometimes seems, a complete stranger. All they have to do is say something like “i like this picture, it’s my favorite” or “nice hair in this one…i wish i could get my hair like that!” or “quit stalking me or i’ll stick your head in my oven”. Just those little encouraging thoughts that can change a persons day….
Like every other teen male with way too much time on their hands, I filled out a March Madness bracket. I have, like a ton of others, Kansas winning it all. The Jayhawks are just tough this year, and my other final four picks are Wisconsin (Go Badgers!), Georgetown (Take that Tar Heels!), and Ohio State (Who would pick against THIS team?!). I picked pretty conservatively, without a lot of upsets. My biggest upset was Gonzaga over UNLV? I think that’s who they’re playing. I had Georgia Tech winning in the first round too.
That’s all for now.
* – God, Matt. It was just a concussion. It wasn’t even a serious injury. So stop whining about it in all of your blogs!
