So it dawned on me that while I’ve been blogging now for years here on my self hosted blog, and that lots of the people who read this know exactly who I am and what I’m doing. However, with my recent uptick in all my social media endeavors, I’ve gained a lot of new followers and readers and should probably explain a bit about myself.
So my last post, was about how I was going to start blogging again more. That didn’t really work out to well apparently. But this time… This time is for realz! I feel like when you get into a funk with blogging, it’s really hard to get back on track. Mostly because its just so easy to NOT do it. You forget that putting it all out there (well, most of it anyways) has this satisfying feeling of getting something off your chest.
Things have been… interesting lately. I’ve been in a bit of a funk. For various reasons i suppose. I’ve had a lot on my mind as of late. Some good, some bad.
I’ve been watching Game Of Thrones lately. I started a couple of weeks ago and have managed to become hooked on it! While I’m writing this late night blog post I’m currently on Season 3, Episode 6. It’s a very interesting show. It’s a bit on the… graphic side, but once you get past that, its got a very twisting plot that keeps you on your toes. Every time I start to think that I like a certain character, they manage kill them off!
I also have been keeping up on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, Glee, and of course Once Upon a Time. The season finale for the latter was sunday night, and boy what a cliffhanger it was. I won’t spoil it for anybody who hasn’t watched it yet. Agents of Shield comes on tonight so I’ll have to watch that after I get out of work. The Glee season finale is also tonight so I’ll have lots of watching to do.
My daughter turned 13 a couple weeks ago. That was really interesting to me. I’ve never really felt old, and really I still don’t but I do feel like somethings are catching up. If it wasn’t bad enough that she turned 13, she sent me a message a couple days later telling me that the boy she likes asked her out. That was a punch in the gut right there. Now I’ve got to have that conversation with her. About what’s acceptable, what’s not. Blargh!
Anyways, I suppose thats probably all for now. its well past my bed time.
Ok. So, I’ve decided to merge my two blogs into one. Stuff in my personal blog will be under the category “Blog”, and stuff related to gaming will be under “Gaming”. Pretty simple eh? The nice thing about merging the two is that it will be a lot easier for me. Now, the BIG decision, is to still make two separate posts, or just use one posts tagged with both categories.
Anyways, after several MIND BLOWING episodes of Dr Who, its off to bed time for me. WEEEEEEEEE
So, ive made some changes to my Social Media sites. Continue reading “Social Media Updates”
So, I’ve not posted anything up here in quite some time. Well, to be frank, I’ve posted stuff, but its really all been more personal inflection that can’t be shared because… Well… because.
Whats new? I’ve been playing a LOT of Minecraft. The radio station that I DJ at randomly has a multiplayer server. I started out playing it because of Mikayla. She begged me to play it with her on the XBox when she spent a couple weeks over here. She played for all day a couple of times while i was working. So i figured I would check it out and release some creative brain juices. Well, come to find out, Minecraft is kinda like Lego’s, and i LOVED Legos. I’ll post some pictures in my gaming blog, and then link it [HERE] to this article 🙂
I’m also been putting together the ground work for a website for my family to use for photos. Gonna have to figure out a few things though, and may have to make a few backtracks.
I’m thinking about doing a revamp on my blog. I need to figure out a way to seperate out the twitter auto posts once a week, and my normal posts. I tweet a lot, lol.
Other than that there really isn’t much to share that’s of share-able-ness. Wut?
And i think that’s why I love Glee so much. I’m in Season 3 right now, episode 4.
So whats going on in my life lately? Not much really, I feel. I went out Thursday night with a friend for some dinner and good conversation. Had a pretty good time. Other than that, its been pretty busy at work so thats really all i’ve been doing.
I did some updates on the parent site of my blog [ProbablyBlogging]. Basically just some server side stuff. Upgrading packages, deleting old files, backing up all the blogs, you know… all that stuff!
Anyways. Easter lunch with the parents in the morning / afternoon.
So i picked up the latest CD, “21“, by Adele on Amazon.com the other day. And, I must inform you that at your earliest connivance you should go out and purchase this CD. I’ve been listening to it non stop for several days now. Probably almost a week. There are so many good tracks.
So. I’m in the hospital. Its kind of a long story so I guess I will start from the beginning.
Today is thanksgiving. There are many things I’m thankful for. But i find myself lonelier that normal this year. Perhaps because I was looking forward to Mikayla being with me, and that didn’t actually happen due to some family being in town that she’s never met before. I’m not really upset about it to be honest, because I get to have her on Christmas so it all evens out. Other than that I’m not really sure why. Well, I’m lying i suppose. Perhaps because of the reasons posted in my private blogs… Muuhahaha.
So today my brother and I went to spend the day with my parents. My mom made a delicious thanksgiving meal. Turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy, corn, biscuits, and stuffing. Of course some pie too. Weeeee!
After the meal we finished watching the lions play a pretty interesting game, and headed up to the hospital to see my grandpa. He’s been ill with pneumonia for several days now, nay a week or so, if not more. It was rather interesting because my grandma (his first wife) died on thanksgiving several years ago. As we were leaving, we ran into a couple of my uncles, my aunt, and my cousin who were all coming to visit him as well. We had a little mini family get together outside his room down by the elevators… Lol
After that we headed back to my parents house and had Pie. I had a slice of apple and pumpkin. Of course with a pleantiful heaping of Cool whip… 🙂 After we ate pie and watched some TV we decided it was time to head back into town.
Once we got into town I stopped at the store to make sure it hadn’t burned down or anything like that. After that we decided to check out the Black Friday lines at the big box stores. Target and Best Buy were both by far the biggest that we saw, although there were a BUNCH of cars at Toys R Us as well. Best buy had people wrapped around the side AND around the back. And this was at like 9pm! CRAZY YO!
After that we headed home, and I rearranged my desk a bit and switched my fish tank to the other side, and put the LCD monitor that my dad wasn’t using anymore on the other side. I had two monitors before but now with this other LCD i don’t have this humongous monitor on my desk anymore, just 2 nice flat screens 🙂
Anyways, I work in the morning so i’m off to bed. TTFN!
