– What Did YOU Do This Weekend –

Okay, I’m just posting this here for now saying that I decided I”m going to use this blog to do more than rant about life. When those epic times go down while we are out and about.. I will post them here assuming I remember the details. ha ha.
So What did YOU do this weekend?

– The Seasons Of Life –

So, it’s 2pm.  Thursday afternoon and I am soon going to be leaving work.  Tomorrow is going to be a massive pain because I have endless amounts of work that needs to be done by Monday. 

Actually, I don’t have anything to say.  I really don’t.  Every major topic on my mind has been discussed.  Until something actually happens to me to trigger another rant I must say I”m pretty much tucker’d out.  Pun intended.

This summer has been probably the most eventful season of the last decade.  The first decade of the 2000’s is going in the books, and it could very well be the most intense one yet. 

Seasons – that is a topic that Candace and I have discussed, and I’ve educated a few friends about it.  I might as well take this opportunity to enlighten the rest of you.

Have you ever noticed that life works similar to a television show.  Bare in mind the format of tv shows.  They have their seasons.  The beginning usually introduces new characters, and new locales, it is basically a fresh start.  Season finales usually either end with a huge dramatic event, or the tying up of said loose ends that began in the premiere.

Look at your life.  Drama-filled.  But have you ever noticed that a lot of the times there are like 3-5 major things happening at one time and they come out of no where.  There is your season premiere… then you’ll find some closure, or some huge even will take place that basically has you floored, and you spend the immediate future after recovering from or enjoying that event.

Here’s an example.  This summer began roughly 10 weeks ago.  Me and Jeff Vineham were okay friends, we didn’t truly hang out all that much.  But, all of a sudden we started to.  We an epic weekend and it went from there.  2 weeks later I took Evan Willoughby out to CB with me and therein lies the “golden age” season.  Evan and Jeff were new characters introduced.  The location kept changing because instead of merely clancys we were at gillies, the gate, all over town.  We discovered “Golden Age of Video” which had then become a song that we play at the beginning of the weekend celebrations.. and we had two months worth of complete insane and amazing weekends.  I also had a complete break down, where everything was destroyed and built back up from the scratch and I have never felt more like myself before. 
That was the beginning of this particular season.

 – – – Fast forward to now.  Salmon Festival has come and gone.  Honestly, I felt the onset of a season finale.  Things are a changing.  We played Golden Age at salmon fest, but it wasn’t the same.  I didn’t feel the epicness.  So the excitement is dying.. Jeff has gone and got himself a girlfriend… i”m ecstatic that it worked that way cause they are both great for each other and seems to be what each other needed… but it does pre-occupy him and hanging hasn’t been the same since. (not that it’s a problem lol).. I have been spending more time with Stacey and Kelsey, a.k.a two new characters introduced mid-season.  And well, it’s just not the same.

I feel like Salmon Festival was out season finale, and now we have a cool down period before shit (good or bad) hits the fan and we enter the next.

Life works like a television show.  If you are truly curious about this concept and my example wasn’t clear.  Come talk to me or msn me and I”ll explain it some more ha ha. 

But for now, I bid you all adieu, I’m going to try to get some of this work done.

– Purpose & Meaning –

Does there always have to be a meaning behind something?  A reason for doing what you’re doing?  A purpose for the actions that you take?  I take the stance of, “No, not really.”  But there was an interesting discussion that took place earlier that got me pondering this… hence here I go on another rant.

The discussion was provoked by Mr. Joe May while I was trying to aid someone in making their own wordpress site.  It essential was a mini-rant about how blogs are annoying and pointless.  There isn’t very many well respected bloggers that he would considering reading.  To this end I do agree.  Bloggers are NOT journalist.  I’m going to school for Journalism right now, and I blog, that does NOT make me a journalist in any way shape or form.  I do not need to source material, or worry about direct quotes because literally I used this website as a tool for ranting and venting when I have something on my mind.  Using his words I just want to “run my mouth” which is indeed what a lot of bloggers do.

I agree with him whole-heartedly that Blogging is rather pointless.  But, here’s where we differ.  I don’t see a problem with something being pointless.  This brings me to my rant at the moment.  Why is it that everything a person does, or says must require a meaning? 

This blog has somewhat of a purpose to me, I don’t feel like I can 100% rant to anyone with complete trust, so I just vent online in a general fashion to help keep my sanity.  Instead of worrying about whether or not what I say will get out amongst everyone I know, I’ll just write it here so that I know every inquiring mind has the ability to see what I am saying.

But, do I really need to justify having this blog?  I don’t need to have a political agenda, or need to promote something, or have to report on the happenings of popular culture to own a blog.  That’s the beautiful thing, I do not need a reason whatsoever to do what I’m doing.  This blog IS absolutely pointless and serves to meaning whatsoever, and yet I keep doing it.  And You guys apparently keep reading. Haha yesterday had more then 40 views.  Now either one person REALLY likes what I”m writing, or there are a handful of people actually interested in what I have to say.

But, I really don’t have much to contribute.  I go through life, and I learn things, I observe things, and when my mind is provoked by a thought I type it out here.  This is basically Intellectual diarrhea (I know I used this term before).  I just spill whats on my mind at the time.  This entry, essentially was brought on my Maywest’s opinion on the validity of Blogs.

The man has a solid opinion, to which I mostly agree.  The difference is, I frankly don’t care how “pointless” and “stupid” blogging is, It’s a nice outlet for thoughts and kills time to read. 

If I want to write here and say that, I think that 3 Days Grace was an okay show at Salmon Festival, but it didn’t blow me away.  Who has the right to question why I decided to say that.  This is a free website, and this little box allows me to type whatever I want… I don’t need a reason.  I can just mash the buttons if I want, sdfhajklgahkjash;fafj… I could even make a whole entry like that.  I don’t need a purpose.

This extends to beyond blogging.  For instance, you see someone sitting at a park bench just staring straight up into the sky.  Nothing up there, he’s just staring.  Maybe he’s doing it because he’s tired.. or he’s bored.. or maybe he just randomly got the urge to look into the sky.  There’s no purpose or meaning to this. 

Right now, lunch is coming up.  I don’t know what I’m going to do, I have no plan.  I texted Stacey to see what she’s doing because she got mad last time I offered KFC and she couldn’t go, so I’ll just keep offering until I make up for that, but she’s watching a movie with Dill,  I could just stay and work since I need to make up a full day of hours and so far only done 1.  I could see what minal is up to.   None of these actions have any prior meaning or purpose then just idleness.  I’m not sure what I”m going to do yet, and I”m not really going to think about it.  Come 12, I’ll just do whatever pops in my head.. lol

Anyway, I know this entry may be a bit vague, and some people will not even see the point I’m trying to make.  But, once again, this is my blog and I have a right to be as confusing as I want and whether you like it or not I don’t need to do anything about it. ha ha

The Jist – Sometimes we can do things for no other reason than just to do them.  There does not need to be some pre-conceived plan or reasoning behind it.  Random behaviour is the funnest kind.
