One Of My Many Apologies

Why is it that when you know you have to do something you try to avoid it as much as possible? I have an apology to make because I know I've avoided blogging lengthy posts, and even blogging my tracks of the month, but it's because I'm feeling under pressure.

I need to improve my writing for a test I have coming up. It's the sort of test where they'll assess and scrutinise everything, and I mean e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g. Grammar, sentence structure, paragraph structure, order of paragraphs, whether paragraphs are hooked, the list just goes on and on! It's a test of your thinking, general writing ability and how logical your thought process is - in 30 minutes.

Unfortunately for me, my trail of thought is exactly that. A long trail that meanders and weaves round and round. I'm not very direct and I like to beat around the bush as they say. Hence why I need to improve how I write and what I write. Surely blogging more is the simple, most interesting solution... Apparently not. I've been scared to even look at the blog and read Sean's posts. I sit and I think.. hmm why can't I write like that in 20 minutes like he does?!

Don't get me wrong, he's been very encouraging, but I just can't seem to get my head around any sort of topic to blog about enthusiastically, and I suppose I shouldn't get used to blogging about things I like because I might be given a topic I don't like, or even know nothing about, how will I fare then?! Oh.. the nerves just keep getting worse and worse, my tummy is doing somersaults!

Mind you, I've quite enjoyed writing this ramble so maybe I will write about something I can really sink my teeth into. Thank you kindly, you've been most helpful. I hope you'll read something from me soon - mainly because I hope to have written something for you to read soon!

Tattoos And The Idiots Who Have Them

More and more in recent weeks, I’ve found myself entirely too devoted to bashing tattoos. I’ve got no problems with people getting tattoos, so long as they actually have some kind of meaning to the person other than “I paid for it” or “it’s on me now so that’s what it means to me” or “it looked awesome”. More and more I see people tattooing the most random things to their body, most people covering their body with the nonsense… and more and more, I’ve found myself entirely too devoted to bashing tattoos. Thank a friend via Twitter recently for showing me a picture of some idiot tattooing stars up and down the side of his face. This began my rant against face tattoos. If you’re in a profession or religion where it’s deemed appropriate, fine… tribal tattoos don’t necessarily cause this reaction for me. I also would never have the balls to call Mike Tyson a fool for tattooing his face. But if you’re just a run-of-the-mill Joe… you shouldn’t be tattooing your face with anything.

[9/29]Track of the Day

Track Title: Fuck You Artist: Cee-Lo Green Thoughts: This song is just... incredible. Cee-Lo is an amazing artist, and this track continues to display that. Lyrically, he says everything that needs to be said, and his vocal game is crazy. Great beat, catchy as hell... ...FUCK YOOUUUUUUUU! OOOO-OO-OOOOOOOOO!
