Memoirs of an Average Unaverage Guy: Entry #1-Introductions I Guess?

1:00 p.m.

Let me start off by saying I have no idea what I’m doing. Not a clue. I’m just a college kid looking for a writing outlet. I’ve always enjoyed writing. The ability to let your mind wander and guide your fingers to create exciting¬†adventures and enthralling tales and to then share these works with others has just always amazed and enticed me. Now, I just want a way to share what my mind is able to guide my hands into creating, and I figured blogging was one way to do it.

Now, I guess I should introduce myself. I’m 18 years old, a guy if you couldn’t tell by the title, I go to a university of 40,000 students where I am studying for an English major with a teaching certificate. I enjoy video games, cooking, writing, reading, watching/studying films and shows, and generally being in a positive position in life. I have Asperger’s Syndrome, which is high-functioning autism. If you don’t know what that is exactly, I definitely recommend you look it up. Basically, as far as I can tell it means I perceive and interpret things in life a little differently. Anyways. That’s enough about me for now. I’m still not sure whom I should be addressing these writings to, myself or an audience? I don’t even know if anyone other than myself will ever read these. I guess it doesn’t really matter in the end if no-one reads it or if everyone in the world reads it. This is really just for myself and just having the ability to share my writings with others is good enough.

I guess I can talk about my life goals. I want to be a high school English teacher, a published author, and big-name movie director. I want to be a name that is remembered by many long after I’m dead. But that’s just the job stuff. I want to graduate college. I might want to go to film school. I want to start writing books. I want to watch films and learn all these different techniques and film tricks. I always feel that there is so much to do in life and never enough time to do any of it. We all have other priorities in life we have to take care of. Jobs, school, sleep, social groups, stuff like that. All that stuff takes time. So you can’t do everything that you want to do all at once. You have to space it out, handle one thing at a time while you also take care of your other priorities. As someone with horrible time-management skills , this is not easy for me to do. So I often bounce between things alongside my priorities in life, but I’m going to try to stick with this since I see this only bettering me.

4:30 p.m.

I took a short break from writing, just to kind of focus on some other things. Had a short smoke in that time. It’s winter break right now so I don’t really have any priorities like school or work to focus on, so I’m able to smoke more frequently than I normally do. There’s a lot of stigmas and stereotypes about people who smoke. It doesn’t really matter to me. I like to smoke and that’s all there is to it really. Anyways, lately I’ve been watching a lot of shows. Sherlock, That 70’s Show, a few anime here and there. I re-watched Archer for the second time; still my favorite show right now. Sherlock was pretty amazing although confusing at times. Yesterday I started Narcos though, and it’s been pretty good so far. It’s interesting to think about how cocaine really was such a problem in the 80’s and it’s crazy how much trouble it caused. Well, I’ve hit a wall for writing for now. I’ll update when I think of something.

6:12 p.m.

I just finished episode 2 of Narcos. I was fine with the episode until the end, where they hang a cat. That really upset me. I really like cats and just the other day my cat got hit by a car so seeing this dead cat reminded me of ¬†my cat. I miss my cat, he wasn’t even a year old yet. The rest of the show was pretty good though. It’s a little dark though, in the sense that there’s no humor, so I’ll probably only watch it an episode or 2 at a time. Not that it isn’t a good show, it’s just that I need a lot of humor in my life so shows with no humor tend to get watched over time. Speaking of shows, there are a lot that have been piling up that I need to watch or finish watching. Jessica Jones, Arrow, Bob’s Burgers, Stranger Things, Gotham, Narcos… not to mention what’s in my Crunchyroll queue.
