I realized today over breakfast with Dan Fisher, that I’ve got zero hobbies. There is nothing that I do in my free time. I work, then come home and usually mess around online or watch tv or something.
I also remembered that just a few years ago I used to care about things, and be really into lots of different stuff. I was watching Landon work in his garden, and remembered when Bill and I built one a few years ago when we first moved downtown and how into it we were (for a few months, anyway). I also used to be really into causes, like vegetarianism, and was a member of a few liberal BS groups in college.
So I’ve decided to use this summer to pick up some hobbies, start doing more stuff, and start being an actual human being. I’d like to do some volunteer work somewhere, do some good. I think I’m going to pick up a new instrument (banjo), probably start dedicating myself to being vegetarian again, and just eating better in general, and try and limit myself to 2 hours of internet time (outside of work) a day. I think I’ll be healthier, physically and emotionally, and be actually happy.
You don’t have a job, you think that finding a full-time job is everything, and that things will be better once you have that job and steady income.
But then you get that full-time job, and you realize that it really doesn’t matter one bit. You realize that all the other things like friends and relationships are way more important. You realize that you’re way more depressed than you were when your biggest problem was paying rent.
Trade Cutler to the Lions for next year’s first round pick (not this year’s; M. Stafford isn’t worth it) and Ernie Simms. The guy is a stud, you just don’t know it because he plays for the Lions. He’s an outside lineback, so play him opposite DJ Williams and we have the edges wrapped up. Then, use…
Wanna Re-think this idea, Jon? Ernie Sims and Colt McCoy?? (M. Stafford just not worth it)
Likes to email me at 2am, asking me philosophical questions and giving me links to different blogs regarding mediation techniques and my thoughts on how they help me answer the philosophical questions.
I feel like it’d be a lot easier if he just forwarded me a dilbert cartoon every once in a while.
