So here’s the thing.
In the days leading up to 2011, I finally reached my breaking point.
After taking a step back, I realized that 95% of my creative juices were being drained by way of semi-clever tweets, topical Facebook updates, and nonsensical gchat statuses. Upon this embarrassing discovery, I knew I had two options:
1) Walk into oncoming traffic.
2) Start writing again.
Thankfully, after much deliberation, I picked option 2.
I considered keeping a diary or writing a journal, but when it’s just for my eyes, I get shockingly lazy (write for 2 straight days, get really proud of myself, and take 3 months off…)
I proudly and openly lack talent, have fooled many people into thinking I’m good at many different things (dancing, board games, basketball, bowling, card tricks, babysitting, subtraction). To be completely honest, there are only 7 things I’m quite good at:
1 – taking it there
2 – being from Atlanta
3 – speaking in hyperboles
4 – having talented friends
5 – making lists
6 – “acquiring” possessions
7 – apologizing, then taking it there again
So that’s pretty much what this blog is about.
1 post every day. No more, no less.
I’m going to do this until I finish grad school and then no more.
May 18th, 2012.
That’s exactly 500 Days.
