New Year’s Eve 2010

Posted by Rob on Dec 31, 2010 in Holidays

It’s the last day of 2010 and it was quite a year. Lots of changes – some good, some bad – so it’s fitting that I end the year with a change itself. This New Year’s Eve is definitely NOT like the others.

Most single people are hitting up bars or house parties. If couples aren’t doing the same, they’re retreating somewhere cozy with other couples or enjoying the company of one another. I’m doing none of that and couldn’t be happier. Today, I’m spending New Year’s Eve with Meem.

If you’re not fortunate enough to know Meem, she’s my mother’s mother. The “G” word is strictly forbidden. She’s a crazy character, a lot of fun, and I’m looking forward to crushing a few bottles of wine and klonopin and feelings of weakness laughing it up with her and possibly my uncles depending on their plans. I don’t make time to see them nearly enough so tonight will be a welcome change of pace.

One thing I have never been good at is balance. I easily get focused on something, like work or a relationship, and zone everything else out. Making time for everything and everyone is definitely a goal for 2011 and finding that perfect balance is a never-ending pursuit that, until now, hasn’t evaded me as much as been ignored by me.

Just wanted to take a second to say Happy New Year’s and I hope – whatever you’re doing – you’re enjoying yourselves. I’m sure I’ll be chiming in tomorrow with my goals for 2011 so stay tuned!

The Preface

Posted by Rob on Dec 24, 2010 in Site Updates

A few days ago, I deactivated my Facebook account. Why? I’m not exactly sure. Lots of reasons I suppose, but I’ll boil it down to three:

  1. It’s Christmas Eve and Facebook intends to connect us, but considering my family is in the same room, it can be quite counterproductive. I’ll reactivate it once “The Ball” drops
  2. I’ve got a LOT of things I’d like to change about my life, but I don’t want to minimize them to unfulfilled New Year’s Resolutions. I’m talking everything from routines and habits to big picture, long-term, bucket-list type items. I’m hoping this public journal will help keep me focused, on track, entertained, in perspective, and balanced.
  3. I’ve got a lot of “stuff” to share, creative juices to release, ideas to is daily dose cialis on the tml formulary get down, opinions to suggest, and can’t think of a better medium than my own personal blog.

I don’t know what this site will become and I’ll treat it more like a stream of consciousness, life timeline, and public journal than anything else. But in brainstorming a few directive themes, the kind of features and commentary you can expect are:

  • Documenting my travels through pictures and words
  • Offering my opinion on random topics
  • Making suggestions to family/friends and anyone else who cares enough is foolish enough to trust me
  • Pointing out funny things (that perhaps only I find funny)
  • Artistic randomness
  • Whatever the hell I want… it’s my site so BACK OFF!

Welcome to my scribble pad. I hope you’ll scribble a bit yourself in the comments.
