Just a thought.


Yikes I suck at this

Documentation via writing is really hard and unintuitive to start unless you lower the bar for yourself. At very best, the best authors in the world smash vast spaces of ideas into a 1-dimensional language transfer device like books or blogs in hopes to transmit maybe 50% of the intended ideas to the audience. Authors might try and try again with more books, blogs, pictures, movies, sequels. But if they had a way to transmit their thoughts comprehensively with infinite bandwidth then they wouldn’t be trying to wrestle and mold language into the shape of their intention. But they and we keep trying.

Anyways, that’s a douchy way to say that I suck at blogging since my last weak vows to try to write more intentionally, more frequently.


 

Boxing is fun. Probably the most consistent I’ve been about exercise in a long time and I knock on wood everyday that I keep it going forever. Maybe I need to learn how to kick too.

I have a problem about starting. Starting a project, starting a blog post, starting a task, starting on a problem. I’ve found it’s centered mostly on how I feel like there must be a bar of preparation before anything has to be started. Like, “I don’t have all the information” or “I don’t know where to start” or “How do I even…”

Well. Here’s to just starting. Writing something, sketching something. Typing something on the search bar. Go on.

It’s the end of 2015, and it’s been almost 7 years since my last post here on Jamaicanjerk, where a lot has changed but barely anything really differs. I read the “About me” page here and smile about what I said in 2006 and how those emotions and passions are largely unchanged, except I know the voice behind it certainly did. I read about my struggles and stories and the background music accompanying my writing ~2008 and find solace in my past self knowing how I was able to overcome and thrive today.

This post is mainly a tribute to my last “Forced Blog Post” and a call for action for 2016, as the need for chronicling begins again. The past 7 years were ripe with changes that I couldn’t have predicted; however it’s extremely reassuring that I remain on a path that I’ve always hoped I would walk.

Happy Holidays. Day 1 is ~10 days away for 2016, but I figure I get a running start so I look good once we start rolling.
