Things I have learned:

You must constantly be destroying your old selves. You see that movie The One with Jet Li? That's okay, neither did I and neither did anybody else in the world, but I gather that the plot was Jet Li jumps through universe after parallel universe destroying alternate versions of himself. That is what you must do, only they're not in other universes, they're in this one, or they were, last year, two years ago, last week.

Your old selves, shoot them in the chest and let them fall to the ground. Don't make any attempt to bury them, they're compost: a couple parts will serve as nutrients for the soil, the rest is good for standing on.

If they have left things on your wall, let's say Having First Girlfriend You or Obsessed With Quentin Taratino You, tear it down. If you even hesitate for a moment on whether or not to keep it or throw it away, throw it away. Cackle mightily, but then sober yourself for a minute and look in the mirror and realize that someday you'll have to kill this You too. You will sell his clothes and the ones you can't sell you'll give to the Salvation Army. You'll sell his books and the ones you can't sell you'll sell to a crappier used bookstore. Maybe you'll keep a few. The idea being that every time you go through this cycle, you should be selling fewer clothes, tossing fewer books. With every old version of yourself you slaughter you should be coming closer and closer to the version you won't have to kill, the version that will just grow old and die.


Alecia's blog is deserving of your love and attention but you already knew that.


There are things I can't write about in here, any number of things for any number of reasons. Trevor and I were talking about this last night.

That's what sucks about your address, he said, you can't say mean things about people. This is true, I can't, but that's not what I really want to do, that's not what I wish I could do but can't.

I knew what I was in for when I put my full name on this thing. I don't regret it. Transparency, that's what it's about. None of this internet personality bullshit, if I take full responsibility for everything I write here...

...Ah, I don't know. I could claim it's about honesty, which it is, sort of, but the fact is it would be a different blog if my name weren't the URL. What it's really about is what ALL forms of interent journaling are about: Attention. If it was really, truly about spilling your guts regardless of who reads, you'd do it in a diary you keep under your pillow, not on a series of electrons that can be read anywhere in the world, by anyone who knows where to look.

So there's that.

I will write every day. That's less of a thing I have learned and more of a thing I am promising to you, Gentle Reader. What I have learned is that writing every day makes me a better writer. Look at Tony, dude makes daily newspapers look like a bunch of slackers with his definitive two-or-three times a day several-graf posts. I read things I was writing a year ago in my long-since vanished Open Diary and I think I was actually better then. That's far from a good thing. The only solution is to write lots, because no matter what you've heard about the quantity/quality ratio, lots of mediocre something is better than high-quality nothing.

I am thinking of putting that on a poster, perhaps below a picture of a crew team cutting through a crystal lake, or a bald eagle captaining a yacht.


While we're tripping on honesty, here's a picture Lauren took of me at Game Night on Sunday night. I'm the one in the foreground next to the 53-cent QT bevviridge.

This is Kept Expecting To Get Cooler Before College But It Isn't Happening Needs To Work Out More Do You Like My Hair? Me.

Someday soon, I'll kill him too.
