New Year’s, New Posts, and a New Me (JK not really, that’s way too dramatic)

There are so many things I would like to do with this blog, and so many things I would like to do with my life in general. But it’s not what I want to do that’s the problem, it’s how I shall accomplish those things. Like, for instance, i’d like to make this blog completely humor like The Oatmeal or Hyperbole & A Half. But unfortunately i’m selfish and I like to shove my life story down people’s throats. Well… not exactly. But I do tend to fill this thing up with personal things. And it occurs to me that my life isn’t funny enough for me to explain everyday on this thing… But i’ll probably attempt at it later. This post gave me a really great idea…

Anyways, point is, there are a lot of things I want to do. And now that it’s Christmas break, it’s a good time to change some things. Pick up some good habits and what not. Maybe grow up a little.

I’ll be working out on a regular basis, on my own. Key words: on my own. I work out on a semi regular basis because of swim team, but it still occurs to me that I am a lazy bum. I don’t know why i’m even typing this, but it occurs to me that if I say it enough, maybe i’ll actually do it. I’m also considering giving up all drinks but water for all of next year, for my New Year’s resolution. A good friend of mine did it. Then again, he probably has craploads more self-control than I do. But i’m considering it. The health benefits would be massive, i’m assuming. I wonder if I could have milk in my cereal….

Here’s a picture of a glass of water for absolutely no one’s benefit.

I almost had a heart attack. I thought my post had been deleted. But.. it didn’t…

Anyways, writing this gave me a great idea for a decently funny post. So I will be working on that tomorrow. And…. I’m gonna write a poem. Maybe. If I ever get enough inspiration. Some people are so good at it. But i’m excited, because i’ll be taking AP Lang next semester, and that should force me to take in some culture.


When Boredom Comes, Knit Space Animals

So, I started a new blog post, but then I got bored with it. This is my second attempt. As if being sick wasn’t enough, my mind just had to go and throw writer’s block on it. Right now I’m waiting for my sister to bring me a pile of bacon from the kitchen. Granted, it’ll probably take a year off of my lifespan, but for the sake of meat, I’m willing to take that risk. Anyways, I’ll go for a run later. The stupid YMCA called me yesterday and was all “Blurble durble da pool heater iz nawt workin LOLZZ we are totes dumb HEHEHHEHE Bai.” And I was like, “EFFF YUUUUUU.” So now I have to go a week without swimming, and I’ll probably get fat and lazy in the meantime. The only form of exercise I have now is running, which in my opinion is the worst form EVER. Now, if you can run and not die, unlike me, great for you! But if you’re like me, running is worse than putting lemon juice on a paper cut. Ouch. That pained me when I wrote that. That was probably an exaggeration, but I’ll leave it. But the whole point of this was to write something and tell you what I was doing… Oh yeah! Ok, back to the bacon. My sister is making me craploads of bacon, and in return I am knitting her a manatee. Kinda like this one.

Cute right? I think it’s friggin adorable. Anyways, I’d say it’s worth a plate of bacon.

In addition to this, I will be knitting myself a fox, and my friend Kaysee a cat. I feel like that sentence was written incorrectly and that it portrays the idea that my friend Kaysee is a cat. If you had any confusion, what I actually meant was that I will knit Kaysee a cat. They’re going to be really freakin cute. And they shall be our good luck charms for swim team! Or… just knitted animals. Either way, they’re coming to swim team with us. This has been decided. And on top of all that, they’ll have astronaut helmets on! They’ll be super cute. Kaysee and I are fairly obsessed with space, if you haven’t noticed. I can’t remember how it got to that point, but I’m fairly positive Douglas Adams had something to do with it. But anyways, they’ll probably look something like this:

Just kidding. They’ll probably look like this:

But whatever the outcome, my Thanksgiving break will now be composed of running and knitting. And attempting to put music on my iPod. By the way, if you get the chance, don’t buy apple products. They suck.

Also, I’m unsure why this has two different font sizes. It bothered me so much that I had to write a footnote.
