Today is a beautiful day. I was walking on the bridge thingy at school. The one by Brotman Hall that goes down to the area by the parking structure and business buildings and Horn Center. It was quiet, and the air was crisp. And I took my time. I breathed. And it was nice.
I’m starting to enjoy this whole blog thing. I recently bought a book entitled, The Definitive Guide to Stuff White People Like, and in the book one thing I remember reading is Christian Lander says white people write blogs because deep down inside they all want to be writers. I thought that was funny, and true, actually. Well not just white people. It’s funny how people think the world is interested that they are getting new furniture in the family room. But anyway, even if that’s the case, I think I like the whole blog thing. For me. It’s therapeutic.
So I only have two posts on my blog (which you can find under my websites on my Facebook profile), and so far only one is kind of interesting. Very personal, but… it’s posted. Done. Hopefully I will set aside more time to write some material with some substance. Not for anyone, but for myself. Anyway, on my blogspot in the right hand corner is a gadget I added called “Your Daily Mantra.” I’m a quote fanatic. Maybe because I’ve never had great rhetoric, and there are so many other people, from the past and present, who share my same thoughts and values and actually have the vocabulary to share it in an intellectual way. I especially like today’s quote:
“Risk! Risk anything! Care no more for the opinions of others, for those voices. Do the hardest thing on earth for you. Act for yourself. Face the truth.” – Katherine Mansfield
Hope everyone enjoys their beautiful day.
