After looking over a few of my old blogs I realized I should probably be blogging regularly still. Years from now, I’d like to be able to look back at old entries like this one. What was going on my life? What have I experienced? How did I react? Who did I block on Facebook? These are the things I’ll look back on.
So, what did vertigo do today? That’s me, by the way. vertigo. No, I don’t capitalize the ‘v’. Ever. If you ever see it capitalized somewhere, such as on justin.tv/twitch.tv, then someone else made it that way. I am vertigo with a lowercase ‘v’. So… what did vertigo with a lowercase ‘v’ do today? Find out in the following pair o’ graphs.
I woke up. Several times. I think I woke up more times than I fell asleep, which must mean something. What did I have for breakfast? Oh, I had nothing. Eventually I ate some leftovers. I didn’t get much work done until later in the afternoon. Even then I didn’t get much done. I’ll get more done tomorrow I hope.
Eh, I can’t say I did a lot today. I began building a Portal 2 co-op map. That’s… neat.
Y’know what, I don’t really have anything interesting to say right now. Maybe it’s because I haven’t blogged in so long that I’m just not sure what to say any more.
Can anybody give me any ideas for things I could write about in my blog?
Don’t worry. This blog has nothing to do with the movie (or the book).
It’s nice to find that I have a few new readers of my blog now that I’ve recruited a larger number of FB friends. For those of you who read my “Notes” on FB, the actual location of my blog is https://vertigoelectric.wordpress.com. Thanks for reading.
It’s also nice to see that people care. It’s something I often take for granted, as I wander aimlessly through my every day life. It’s true that I have had suicidal thoughts, even today. On one hand, I don’t truly believe I would ever actually deliberately end my own life. On the other hand, I become so miserable and hopeless, I don’t see anything to look forward to.
On a slightly lighter note, I want to make something clear now that I know I have new readers for my blog. You’ll notice blog posts with subjects that contain a date exactly for years older than the date they are posted. Let me explain briefly. Years ago I kept a blog on myspace. I updated it regularly, and often. After a while, I began saving these blogs to individual files on my own server. I eventually managed to save them and store them in a safe archive. I did this because I did not want to risk losing them, as I have had a myspace account deleted before without any warning. Near the beginning of November (last month), I noticed that the oldest myspace blog that I had successfully archived was dated November 10, 2005. With the 10th of November coming up soon, I decided it would be interesting to RE-post these old myspace blogs on the exact date they were originally written, but 4 years later. So, I have been doing exactly that. You can easily identify these re-posted blogs by the dates in the subjects.
These blogs help me reflect, and they are also a way of sharing with you, my friends, some of the events passed. It will help you understand me better, if you have any desire to do so.
I haven’t been posting EVERY SINGLE blog, as some of them are as short as a single sentence, though I may begin to post the short ones as well. If you’d like to look through the archive yourself, please feel free to do so. The link is here: http://www.vertigofx.com/myspace/_blogs/archive/
I will go to bed now.
PS: Let me also add a disclaimer. Some of my old blogs from years ago contain bad language. It wasn’t often, but it is there.
As you can see my blog design is a little different. I went ahead and paid for a custom CSS upgrade so I can have the most flexibility with the design. I’m not limited to the existing theme layouts.
I stayed home from work today so I don’t have to talk at all. I am going to rest and not use my voice for anything, which means I won’t be doing a video log… well, maybe I will do one if I am feeling better tonight. My coughing won’t go away unless I let my irritated throat heal, and the more I talk or use my voice, the longer that’s going to take.
I dunno what else to say at the moment.
Oh, yeah. If you look on the side bar you’ll find a link to my old myspace blog archive. The earliest is from Nov 10, 2005. In 5 days that post will be exactly 4 years old. I was thinking… it would be kind of cool to get those blogs transferred to WordPress so that they are in with the rest of my blog. I think what I will do is copy each post’s content as a new post on the date that it was originally posted, but 4 years later. In other words, in 5 days (november 10), I will copy the 2005 myspace blog and post it here. One concern I have about that is that I would need a for-sure way to make it obvious that it’s an old post. I’ll figure it out. If you have any ideas, please share.
