Tough But Fair

Well, BU finally took my webpage off of its server (, and so I thought that a new, version 2.0 could possibly be created using this nifty blogspot site. I'm not sure exactly how I want to use this yet, whether it be as more of a traditional, stream-of-conciousness blog, or as a more formal forum for columns and what have you. But I figure that while I'm sitting at home looking for a job, I should stretch my writing muscles a little. I'm finding that it is becoming hard to keep in touch with everyone who I want to keep in touch with, for various reasons, so this could be a good kind of forum for that. One thing I don't always have the patience for lately is long AIM conversations. Sure, once in a while they're fine, but due to how crappy my internet connection is here in CT and also just the frustration of not having too much new news to report on a daily basis, it does get annoying to talk to people online, especially those who I don't talk to on a regular basis. It's funny though, because it seems like the people who I am genuinely curious to hear from are the ones who are usually AWOL (I'm not even sure if that's the correct use of that term, but oh well ...). On another note, being at home on the job search does give me a lot of time to ingest a healthy dose of news, entertainment, politics, etc., so as a writer I have lots to write about in that regard. The funny thing is that in general I don't really like writing about myself. Who the hell cares what I have to say? Then again, all writers are pretty much egotistical because we want to share something of ourselves with others. This is what I have to say, now listen up, Junior. The truth is that I am fascinated with other people's blogs. Why someone would write about their personal life and put it out there for all to see I have no idea. But ya gotta love the internet for allowing us to read why Kelly in Seattle can't believe that Joey doesn't like her back. But on the other hand, if you're like me then you can't get enough of opinions. I love reviews. I love columns. I can't get enough of hearing what people have to say about a subject that i'm interested in, so long as their opinion has at least some merit. So I guarantee that anything I write about will interest me, and it will darn sure have some merit. Wow I was trying to be funny yet sounded pretentious. Dammit I was being self-deprecating but sounded like an ass. Hmm this blogging stuff is pretty hard, maybe I ahould just put up some song lyrics or something ...
