There are so many things I want to talk about on this stupid blog, but here's the thing.... Somewhere along the line, this dumb little collection of news stories about people blowing themselves up by trying to light barbeque grills with gasoline, and stories about all the gunnerific people at law school became *gasp* sorta popular, and *horror of horrors* semi-well-read.
This puts me in a quandary. The stuff that I want to talk about in my life, the stuff that's interesting (read: people I hate, things that piss me off, cool shit I'm doing at work) is off limits now because it's either tangentially related to work, or it's something I don't feel comfortable writing about because I don't want anyone to read it and go "Oh hey, I recognize those mannerisms and annoying habits, I know that person, I'll email them this post!" Or worse yet, have the person I'm venting about in a totally cheap and unprofessional and ridiculously immature way on my anonymous blog come across a post the recognize as being about themselves and have hurt feelings or, worse yet, send it to my boss/parents/some other authority figure who would be highly offended.
So, what do I write about? I'm going to have to come up with something because I'm even boring myself these days. It's weird that the more people read this blog, the less free I feel to write in it...I would have never guessed that when I first started it. But then again, I never thought more than ten people would read this blog anyway.
Shell did ask the other day about how I dealt with the thought of death and dying while I was in the military, and I think I will write about that soon...I just haven't had time lately to make it happen. I've also been doing a lot of thinking about relationships and love and self-esteem and my usual line of "navel-gazing" topics, so perhaps I'll have more of those. I don't know man...this is the closest I've ever been to anything even remotely bordering on "popularity", albeit in a very strange and surreal sense, and it's...well...strange and surreal. Feel free to leave suggestions for topics, but don't feel pressured to...it's not all request week or anything, but if anyone has any burning desires for topics or just needs to get a certain question answered, I'd more than welcome the help.
