Welcome to WordPress. This is your first post. Edit or delete it, then start writing!
It’s Valentine’s weekend, and as anyone who knows, I’ve been single for the better part of the last four years. I’ve been on fewer dates than I have fingers in that time, but for the most part, I’ve been fairly indifferent to the concept of romance in my life.
Sure, I get ronery every now and then, but the feeling usually is gone by the next day, or when the next shiny distraction takes my mind off the feelings. But the fact of the matter is that no matter how chauvinistic, tough, or invincible I may act from time to time, there’s still a great big softy behind the asshole-ish exterior I stand behind a lot of the time.
So in the loose spirit of a commercialized occasion, I’ll share a little bit of softy stuff, just to prove that I’m capable of acting human from time to time.
So I’m sitting at work today, and around noon, the sky pretty much begins falling, and doesn’t really stop until about 9 p.m. The best part was, that people in the office began freaking out, and plots to get out of the office early, and all the other nonsensical excuses people come up with to skirt their work duties began stirring. For hourly slaves like myself, that’s not always in the best interests, but that’s another story.
Bottom line, by 3:30-ish, 80% of the office was gone, and I was back to plugging away at doing the tasks expected of me in order to earn my gravy. The local traffic site, Georgia-Navigator.com was about as flooded with bandwidth like the morning I found out that Costco was selling Piss3s online when they first came out, and I tried really really hard to get one. But I stayed pat, because one, I’m smarter than everyone else in the office, and two, I need the hours.
The last time I overhauled my website in its entirety would have to have been back in like 2003 or 2004. Either way, it’s been a long, long time since there’s been any significant change over in my corner of the intertubes, but as of today, change has finally come. Considering my old website began to really be nothing more than a place to house my writings and photos, instead of the myriad of random nerdy content, it got to a point where I wanted to simplify things, mainly the wring aspect of it.
Throughout the last nine years, the process of posting grew more and more tedious, to the point where it actually began to affect whether or not I would take the time to write at all, which for someone like me, is unacceptable. I noticed how the number of posts I made each year from 2001 through 2009 dwindled a little bit more yearly, to where I began to make bad jokes about how posting became a monthly thing. I really do enjoy writing, but I’m also not a fan of wasted time, which I was growing to feel that the task of getting something posted was becoming to be. So, to alleviate those woes, I’ve moved on, to a WordPress, to make writing and posting a lot simpler in coming days.
Things might look different, but there’s really not going to be a whole lot different than how things were before this change. I’m still the same sports, video games, and zombie-loving hypocrite, with all the same personality hangups and tendency to write too more than what is necessary once I get going.
