I can’t believe I haven’t posted anything on here since April. This was truly my outlet and allowed me the opportunity to let go of some of the things that were literally ‘swimming in my head’.
Had to let it go for a time to focus all of my energy on growing the business especially because the economy was seemingly sending it the other way.
Truly learning that the universe works in mysterious ways though. June was a month of getting reacquainted with people that I haven’t seen in over 15 years and getting reacquainted with myself.
Where I thought I had analyzed the situation enough to figure out why these people had reentered my life, I’m finding out that the reason may not be as obvious as I thought.
Through those recent reunions, I’ve had the pleasure of meeting and starting to get to know some amazing people; one of which is Traci (click her name for her blog which is an amazing read). As a matter of fact, Traci was the inspiration/motivation to unearth the personal blog again.
I’m not sure exactly where everything is heading on all fronts, but what I’ve learned and gained in the way of knowledge and phenomenal people in my life, makes up for the uncertainty.
I’m just going to go with it and see where it takes me…
It has been a hot minute since I’ve written in my beloved blog and I’ve missed it. Before I go any further…WTF, Gbu2, Brian, Sideon and Sammy – thank you for the emails and concern. I’ve missed you guys too!
As Patsy said in AbFab ~ “I’m fine I’m just here with a sick friend” (internal laughter)
The reality is I’ve been absolutely consumed with a business retool/refocus and we’ve actually got some decent clients that require a good part of my time. So, the reality is that I cannot complain because the good far out-ways the bad in this instance.
Now onto the all-important stuff…
Let’s see, I’ve been on Twitter so much that I dream in Twitter. I literally have dreams where I’m responding to situations by tweeting a message in 140 characters or less. It’s like a drug except that it doesn’t cause tooth loss. The weight loss, sleeplessness, and paranoia are minor side effects that should simply be ignored due to the overwhelming good that Twitter can bring to one’s life.
I’ll admit that there are some real “ass-hats” (thanks Sammy25) out there that think they’re suddenly ‘Twitterstars’ or ‘Twelebrities’ (whichever floats your boat) and they’re really nothing more than hot-air filled pompous boneheads that like to hear themselves talk…except now they can see themselves talk. But that’s what makes the Twitter experience what it is. Can I hear a “block, block”?
I’m all about the visuals since I’m in the multimedia business and I thought that for every major point I discuss in this post, I’ll give you some visuals and some audio thrown in to keep it interesting.
For all of you that think us tweeters are crazy…here’s your proof that you’re only partially right. If it wasn’t for our being crazy, who would entertain you?
Which now leads me to what I think should be the anthem (song) for all of us in the twitterdom on the pilgramage to the promised twitterverse…Don’t judge me!
Oh, I’m not even close to being finished…then there’s Facebook……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………
Sorry, I must’ve drifted off post while I was updating my Facebook status.
You know what? I’ll save my ‘Facebookapades’ for another post. In the meantime…one more good piece of media. I’m completely addicted to this somewhat recent remix of an old favorite – “Silence (Niels Van Gogh Vs. Thomas Gold Mix 2008)” by Delirium featuring Sarah Mclachlan. It’s been on repeat the entire time I’ve been writing this post and between my tweets, status updates, pings, diggs, stumbleupons, flocks, this blog and the damn beats – it’s time for me to bid you farewell until tomorrow for which I’m scheduled to write yet another post right before my nail appointment. I’m having them optimized for enhanced keyboard use.
Thanking @wutupdogg for the intro to Ping.fm! Definitely more than a nice app! Feel a blog post coming on to report.
I reluctantly watched the state of the nation last night and was actually very moved. I was reluctant because for whatever reasons, I’ve got a complete and almost paralyzing fear of what will happen if President Obama ends up doing what most other politicians doing – making a lot of promises and not delivering.
My mistake was watching the address on the CNN/Facebook collaboration. What I observed was interesting however. There were obviously a lot of supporters, but there were still those disgusting jerks who had to make their hateful comments about Dems and their fellow countrymen as though they could do a better job if they were in office.
I learned something again though before I get to my favorite parts…I learned that people that project negativity do so, because they hate something in themselves. I’m no exception…I’ve been known to harshly criticize someone or something, only to realize that I exhibit the same trait and really only hate that about myself.
So, no more listening to the assholes, defintely no support of Fox or anything Rupert Murdoch because they’re just too angry, and no more taking personally the words of people that are completely insecure with themselves.
Now, onto the highlights…
First, I don’t know Nancy Pelosi personally so I cannot talk about her as though I do, but I had motion sickness from all of her standing up and clapping. Nothing wrong with showing support, but talk about giving new meaning to being a jack-in-the box. Nancy, if you ever get the chance to read this, please wisely choose your standing points next time ok?
Some of the lines that I absolutely loved and remembered mostly because I do believe that if we all work at it, we can accomplish some very amazing things here:
“Take responsibility for our future once more”
“The most valuable skill you can sell is your knowledge”
“We cannot afford to govern out of anger or the politics of the moment”
“It’s not about helping banks, it’s about helping people”
“Dropping out of school is dropping out on your country”
“For seven years we have been a nation of war – no longer shall we hide the price”
I’m hopeful, to say the least – hopeful that we can make some great strides as a country and get over the petty in-fighting to truly be the United States of America.
Let’s see how the movie plays…
