About this blog

A collection of entries about different subjects that may or may not involve golf, cooking, or other such interests I may have. Posts may also include observations I make during my daily life, deep philosophical questions, and general weirdness. Viewer discretion is advised.

This isn't meant to be a partisan discussion, simply a statement of the law. It bugs the shit out of me when people cite the First Amendment incorrectly. Here it is, verbatim:

Amendment I

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

A good resource can be found here at the Cornell University Law School website:

Exhausted

These last two weeks have been crazy. Christmas activities combined with work ramping up have left me completely exhausted. One of the mechanics at work retired a couple of months ago and the work has been slowly backing up. On top of that, we had a couple of additional projects that needed to be done: first a soda machine needed to be installed last Thursday which involved working overnight and being awake for almost 24 hours, and a store closing just before Christmas which involved 40 hours of work this past Monday-Wednesday. I even worked a full day Christmas Eve before heading out for family stuff. Didn't get any rest on the weekends due to shopping, family stuff, and more work. Couldn't even enjoy the warm weather because I've been too tired to do anything golf-related.

I'm absolutely exhausted and this weekend isn't nearly long enough for rest.

Trouble with Expression

It's kind of odd. It's not like I have problems in social situations or anything, but I find I spend a lot of time typing up drafts and then deleting them. I've done it three times already, trying to start this blog. I just noticed I spent more than an hour on the site just now, going through different threads, composing responses. Some things I even took the time to research as part of my response. Then, for some reason or another, I decide it's not worth posting and delete the whole thing. It's not just recently, either. I've done this through all the years I've been a member of TST.

I can't put my finger on it. I'm certainly not shy. I'm not afraid to make mistakes, embarrass myself, etc. I just did it again right now; got up to make myself a drink and almost talked myself into deleting this draft.

Is it perfectionism? Am I trying too hard to be perfect at something that can't be perfected? I think I do the same thing with golf. I have to get over this somehow, since life is not about perfect. I'm planning to go back to school next semester and I need to seriously get over this. The point isn't to get a 4.0 GPA.

BTW I just did it again. I didn't like my original title so I thought about changing it. While I was figuring out what I wanted to change it to, thought about deleting the whole entry because it probably isn't worth sharing. Damnit.
