Post #100

Hey ya'll, I've stuck with this blog long enough to have 100 posts over the course of the last 3 or 4 years. Wow, what a meaningless statistic. Well let's see, what meaningful things have I done in that time period:

- I started a magazine. We have completed work for four issues, http://lifeafterdeath-comp.blogspot.com/

- I completed the script for an issue of a comic, only 5 to go.

- I've got a start on a novel and a TV pilot.

- I've quit two jobs. Pizza Delivery Boy and Asset Disposal Inside Account Manager.

- I've gotten one job.

- I've been to two funerals.

- I've been to one wedding.

- I've been to LBI 4 times with my family. Twice without.

- I've been to Boston, New York, Williamsburg, Philadelphia, Asheville, Orange County, Palm Springs, La Quinta

- I'm about to go to Aruba.

- I've seen Dispatch, NIN, Jane's Addiction, Against Me!, Modest Mouse, almost REM.

And there are a lot more somewhat noteworthy things that I've done, I'm sure, but summing up my life is pretty depressing. I need to do something important. Something that resonates with other people and not just myself, I think. Here I come to save the day.

Anti-inspired (sad face)

Inspiration is a fickle bastard with a razor dick. I'm stuck on about 4 different writing projects I'm doing. Yay...Oh well, time to power through I guess. That's why I've come on here to post. I need to get something down just so I don't feel like a total failure. So, anyone got any work for a freelancer who can write? Requirements: I would like for my next job to not make me hate my life.

This is month three of freedom from corporate America and boy, am I still not bored. Sorry all you doubters. I'm pretty sure I could do this forever if it wouldn't cause me to die of starvation. I'm not the guy who wants to go make someone else rich all day. I have more than enough random crap rattling around in my head to amuse/befuddle me for the rest of time, or you know...at least a while. What did you people used to do during summer vacations from school? Sit around all day and mope that you couldn't wait until September? Jesus.

Anyway, back to tinkering I go.
