Round And Round It Goes

Where it stops...well, it stops on a round up really doesn't it? It is Monday, and it is that time of the week again (Monday, like I just said) for a round up post. We had a rather varied week on the blog, with some high highs, and some low lows. So let's take a look at just what did happen shall we?

Tuesday was one of the really good days. Originally I had planned to make an incredibly depressing post about the incredibly depressing state of my life right now. Instead though I got some very good things in the mail. It was a nice little package of birthday gifts from Fang, Levy, and a friend of theirs. Inside was a birthday card, a letter, another letter detailing my origins, and a Rainbow Dash toy. Win all around I say.

Wednesday was when it got incredibly depressing. But I can't really complain, it was easily the most viewed post of the week, breaking 70 views. Which is awesome. As for the post itself, well, it was originally about how I have trouble saying no, and really go out of my way for people. Then it kind of went deeper, as I went in to why, and even opened up about the abandonment issues I have, and how I push people away deliberately.

Thursday was a solo effort podcast about how people are too easily offended these days, and some of the things wrong with political correctness. My running theory is that if you don't allow something on the grounds it may offend someone, then you're just drawing unwanted attention to those people, and even getting them unwanted negative attention. Let's say for example that if someone says "You can't say "Christmas", and openly celebrate it, in case you offend the Jews." then people really are going to think "it's the Jews fault I can't celebrate Christmas properly, *insert expletive here*" but it isn't. It's the dumb people who are being offended for other people. Some people are stupid.

Friday was about pressure, and how I don't handle it very well. I don't handle pressure too well because I've never really been pressured. Now I have a lot of stress and pressure in my life and I'm not even sure where most of it is coming from. I guess this counted as depressing because Fang keeps saying he wants to hug me.

Saturday was a super special awesome podcast I recorded while slightly drunk still from the night before. It was a special message to my good ladyfriend Leah. She practically exploded over this, and she will actually explode when she gets some mail some time soon. I'm glad she enjoyed it so much. I also baked a cake, but it didn't go totally well. It was still delicious but only Leah has seen it. Other than me of course. Seeing as I ate some of it.

Sunday  was the latest chapter in Immortal Space, complete with a toned down fight scene that got mixed opinions. Some said I was too descriptive, and some said it was just fine. I've really learned how to write a fight scene from writing notes for my collaborative wrestling blog. I've not really read many books with fight scenes in. Anyway, read it and judge for yourself.

Well that is the week that was last week. Hope you guys have a good week, and I guess I hope I do too.

  3. It just feels like I have less time to do everything I want to do. I too don't handle pressure well.

  5. A week's worth of information here. It's kind of hard to write just one relevant comment. So since the name of the entry was "Round and Round it Goes", I will simply recite a few verses from "Round and Round" the epicly huge hit by the 80's heavy metal band Ratt..."round and round...well love will find a way just give it time... round and round...what comes around goes around...I'll tell you why....she said, I knew right from the beginning, that you would end up winning...I knew right from the start...you'd put an arrow...through my heart." Thank you. Thank you very much.

  6. Nice round up, Mark. It was a rather full week on this blog, wasn't it :-) ? Have a great week!

  7. That's an awful lot of 'exploding' during a podcast. At least it's the good kind.

    Also, I liked the fight description. I hate when someone builds up anticipation in a story and then you get a fight that's over in 2 sentences. What the hell is that? Give me a good brawl any day.
