Fuck it. I can afford to be lazy. I'm poor but being lazy costs nothing. So. Yeah.
Well actually I felt like actually doing a proper "erhmygawd guys, I hit 500 posts" kinda post. Instead I am now celebrating making it to the 501st post. Was the 501st squad of stormtroopers the ones who executed Order 66? I would check it out but I'm not sure how. I'm almost sure that on the campaign mode of Star Wars Battlefront you play as a stormtrooper from the 501st. Which would make this post, and by proxy me, awesome.
But that's just one Hell of a tangent that isn't anything to do with anything. Back on the original, yet secondary, topic.
YAY 501 POSTS.
I'd like to thank Jesus for this moment. Because I feel like patting myself on the back. Though in actuality of course I probably couldn't have done it without you guys. Without you guys I would just be a crazy person who talks to themselves. I do that enough in real life to not need to do it online too. Without an audience I would just get bored and go home. Yes I write my blog posts from home but it's a figure of speech. Without a reader, a writer is nothing really. Then again I have written some things that will never see the light of day.
I said yesterday in the podcast that it really didn't feel like much in the way of spectacular that I reached 500 because I do a post a day, and so it's not like I've been doing this all that long. But it's still a pretty big achievement that maybe...485(?) of those posts were made one after the other. I guess you can count that was rather an achievement. Even if some of them were lazy, and didn't contain much in the way of material, I still wrote them. Plus I put in a lot of effort outside my own blog. I check for new updates every few hours or so, and I do my best to read everything I can every day. Even when I was working 9-5 on my voluntary job I would check all the updates. That, let me tell you, was exhausting.
Part of me is hoping to be able to work my writing, and the other aspects of my life, around checking blogs. Sometimes I would feel put off from doing something because I would have to check blogs soon. But, if I can dedicate myself to one task for an extended period of time, then I can make some kind of schedule, and actually become more productive. Then again, going with my dad to pick up my niece from school three times a week throws a wrench in to nearly any and all attempts to make a schedule because for half the week I have no clue what my free time is going to be. If I had a job it would be even worse.
But, the point remains valid. That I can do different things in between reading blogs, and see that time as a time to change up what I'm doing a little maybe. Last week I was even writing on my laptop in the backseat of my dad's car when we picked my niece up. I was slightly surprised no one asked me why I was suddenly taking my laptop everywhere, my dad didn't even ask me, but I am about a week away from being a published author and no one in my family even knows or cares I'm a writer.
I'll understand if you only read half of this. It kinda turned in to two posts. Just pick a half.
