Here are my thoughts about films, life, and what not. If you don't like them I'll give your money back.

The Daily Show nailed it earlier this week with its thank you tribute to the shinanigans coming out of South Carolina.

Thank You, South Carolina - Andre Bauer

I do happen to enjoy SC, but there are people and things that make it hard to admit that SC is my home. My new goal in life is to restore SC to its greatness, whenever that might have taken place. I know, there is a long history to overcome. I mean we fired the opening shots of the Civil War! Ugh. Don't even get me started on education.

Anyways, first on my list of things that are great about SC is drop down menus online. Ever filled out your state in an online box? Simply hit S on your keyboard and you're there. I realize this is true for some other states, but S is also one of the home keys. . . if you are using proper typing form.

You gotta start small. This is the first thing I have notice, without giving much thought to it, but rest assured there is more insights to come.

Breaking into the . . .

I've been contemplating several hobbies to pick up during my newly acquired free time (well more so than usual) and I thought I would find several things to break into. . . Google originally suggested cars.

Welcoming the coming decade

10 January, 2010

Not only is it a new year, but, more menacingly, a new decade. I tend to love and hate the month of January because, at least for me, it gives you time to envision a better version of yourself while simultaneously confronting the parts you are not so fond of. The passing of time make you confront your past self with the questions "what would I have done differently?" Many things apparently.

This year has been a little different for me, causing alot of pondering. Not only has a year passed, but a whole decade. 10 years! I've had two whole decades to do something and what is it?

With the past decade I was a Freshmen in high school with no drivers lisence. Now I am married an living in NY. It doesn't seem that long ago but I have done many things to be proud of and many things to regre. This year Carla and I actually made a list together of how we want to act in the 10's. I'll be sharing some of them along the way, but the first is: 1) smile at someone you don't know every day.

I have enjoyed this one very much, and makes my day more than I think it makes other people's day.
