Hiiii, you guys.
Okay, so I have been going through a lot of emotional and crazy shit lately. So many people think that running a blog is really easy when it really isn’t. My typical day is sitting in front of my computer trying to come up with something new to write about that goes with “my voice”.
Since it’s been difficult to find my voice with these ~creative differences~ going on, I have just been floundering around. Well, not anymore.
This will seem totally off topic but I saw The Martian this weekend. Not only is Matt Damon a beautiful human being and fun to watch on screen, the whole plot will just kind of mindfuck you. Basically what happens is: Matt Damon is with a group of astronauts on Mars collecting soil when all hell breaks loose with a goddamn sandstorm and he gets hit with some kind of satellite which leaves the rest of the crew to believe he’s dead. They take off and he eventually wakes up alone on Mars. Like, literally fucking alone.
Imagine that. You’re the only person on the planet. I want to take a clonopin just thinking about it.
Anyways, so he has to figure out how to make contact with NASA and, you know, survive. I don’t want to spoil it for you but after doing a shit ton of math and implementing his botany skills, he does make it.
Fuck, I just spoiled it. Sorry.
Anyways, the ending is the cherry on top. He is finally back on Earth and has become a sort of astronaut-trainer. THIS IS WHERE IT HIT ME HARD: In his lecture, he is explaining that shit will hit the fan at some point and things will go south. But, the whole point is figuring out how to survive and keep moving forward. No matter what happens, you keep going and you figure things out along the way.
That’s what I’m going to do.
I’ve decided to create a proper business plan and maintain more of a schedule (the way I used to). I want TRM to be about my thoughts, musings, and notions about a lot of different things. Sure, some of you may think I’m narcissistic or selfish to veer it in this direction but let me remind you: I started this. This is my baby. I want all of the posts to be approved by me first. If I don’t like it, then it’s not going to be on my site.
Nobody fucks with my baby.
Anyways, talk to you guys soon about what to expect on the site.
