Memorial Day, Bon Iver

I didn’t have a whole lot to start with,

But that never stopped us

A few choice statements on foreign policy, and how to feed pups

That evolved into debates on the states of Wisconsin, Minnesota, New York

NY, or Long Island, somewhere under a rainbow

 

That’s how I explain my fear of death to strangers willing to ask

With a thermostat set to 58 fahrenheit and a savings account

I don’t remember the last time I added bacon to breakfast,

 

It’s forever ago, with chimes we hung out front to remind you of home

I remember a time when I didn’t fear dying, and fought for that right

Now I take out the trash the day it’s picked up, as an act of rebellion

I have the world fooled that I’m so like them

But I love my wife, like my father loves his, forever and 

I only ask that people stop counting the days for their own sake

I’m not abandoning this

I’ve been writing in a physical journal for most of may, keeping on top of things for the most part since i last saw Kailey and keeping my spending to a minimum and ensuring thwart i don’t spend too much of my money. I’ve been well with my dietary habits apart from the few times i go out with friends at which point i throw caution to the wind because i don’t see the point in restricting myself when I’m trying to enjoy myself.

It’s been a while since I’ve checked in with this blog and written in a public forum. I guess now that I’ve hit the two month mark for leaving NY, it feels like i should be dedicating some time to the one thing i started here that i plan on keeping consistent once i leave, moreso than i did while i was here. I’ll have so much uninterrupted time to focus on things i‘d like to do that it only makes sense to rededicate myself to writing.

What will i actually write about when i utilize this and force myself to sit down and write, though? I think that will be the fun thing to see. If my mind just wandered off onto a topic, what topics would become recurring themes? It’s going to be a bit therapeutic to actually publish things online again. That being said, i don’t intend to make longwinded posts about anything in specific. I say that now, with the full knowledge that i am going to be ranting on end about things that bother me. I’ve already experienced a couple moments this week where i accidentally dominated conversation with friends and gave life to ideas that captivated (that always really motivates me and it causes me to feel like I’m talking too much but then ends up being the fact that people are interested in what I’m saying). I’m an orator that doesn’t want to hog the spotlight, which isn’t the most effective method.

In time, I’m sure I’ll start to get a feel for what i like discussing, but to start i know I’ll be throwing video game ideas out there and shining some spotlight onto videos and articles that resonated well with me. Let’s see where this takes us, and if it makes for anything that you all enjoy, please don’t hesitate to let me know that you did. Thanks!
