Updates; More to Come?

It's funny, how little I update things like this. Even my twitter account doesn't see that much use, and I'll tweet any stupid little thought that I feel like sharing. Could it be that whatever ridiculous narcissistic bug that has taken over the tech generation has passed me over somehow? Maybe. More than likely that just comes with the depression territory.

Speaking of which, I'm totally off meds for the first time in a while. I'm sleeping in weird intervals again, but otherwise the mood's been mostly good. I'm still not back in school yet, and haven't landed a job, but things are slowly changing.

It's probably worth noting that I seem to have a girlfriend-type person in my life now. Kind of big news for anybody who knows me, but I'm a little tired to talk about it now. I'll do a proper post about the whole thing soon.

Meanwhile, I have a few anti-poverty prospects upcoming very soon. For one, I've been following a certain radio show that holds a trivia gameshow every week. I'm not telling what the show is because the pot's getting big and you might be tempted to try for it yourself, and dammit I want the monneh!

Other than that, there's something more promising: a publisher is holding a sort of meet-and-greet to get to know some new authors. I plan on being there to show off some of my stuff. I somehow doubt my old novel is worth showing, but I'll bring a digital copy, along with one of my favorite short stories, a new book in progress, and maybe a couple other projects to sample.

Lastly, and this should be good because it's almost a guarantee: jury duty. I'm due in next week to serve, and they pay you for your time if you're unemployed or your job doesn't pay your time off. I'm sure most people would consider this boring, but considering we're talking about jury duty in Schenectady, I'm expecting some chuckle-worthy moments, if only in retelling the story later. You can expect to see a post about that next week.

So, yeah, as things are kind of picking up with my life finally, I might just start updating more regularly. There are at least 2 posts I plan on writing in the immediate future, so there's a start. In the meantime, I'm sure you'll find something else to amuse yourself with. I will, however, leave you with this:

Guess who has two thumbs a tired meme and got laid this week.

(No, not Bob Kelso. Me)

Anyway, that's it. Peace and love, you crazy kids.
