A Post Involving Me Thinking Out Loud and Some Guy Named Demetri

As some of you may know, I'm in the process of ending my other blog, The Nerd Archives. It has had a long, full life. Now I think it's time that it burns to the fucking ground so I can parade around in its ashes and smear the fiery shreds of it across my bare chest.

I know this blog has been neglected for a while. It's gone through three name changes. I like this name. But I don't like this blog. I just deleted about 150 of my posts, because I read them and thought they were absolute monkey genitals. Honestly, it makes me sick to think that I wrote them.

I've kept the last few posts with some poetry and pictures that I'm okay with. But this blog still has a lot of bad connotations for me. A lot of bad juju. And I'm wondering if it would be best for me to get a whole new blogspot around the time when I end The Nerd Archives. Just to start afresh and stuff.

I'd lose all my followers, but I only have sixty anyway and I'm pretty sure not a single one of them still reads this blog. In fact, I'm pretty sure I'm the only one who reads this blog anymore. And that's the thing. Getting a new blogspot would be me admitting that to myself. I could immerse myself in an entirely new blogging community, and I wouldn't have to be so caught up in whether or not people read it. I could just write and post and write and post and do whatever I want and no grownups can tell me when I have to go to bed.

I feel like I've changed so much just in the past few months or so. It's not even that a lot has happened, necessarily, although really it has. A lot happens every day. But I've only just started to become aware of that.

Also I'd probably be willing to post a lot more if I got a new blogspot. I don't know why. I just would.

I've been sort of convincing myself while writing this post and I think it's starting to sound pretty good.

Listening to the Dead. "The Ripple." That's some great shit. I've been listening to the song "Pumped-Up Kicks" by Foster the People for the past like 72 hours, so it makes a nice change. Although...now that I mention it, I kinda wanna go listen to that song again.

I'll get back to you later. Maybe.

I'm learning German. Ja.

Oodles and Oodles of Doodles

And also, Dr. Dog.

But first, the oodles and oodles of doodles. First, here's a bunch of stuff I just drew in the margins of my homework during class or stuff.

Here are some paintings. The first one is a still life we did in the first week or two of class, and the second is my modern art piece.

(See if you can tell what some of the things in the still life are.)

Finally, here's an unfinished one from the Advanced Painting class. (I'm just in Painting 1). Their assignment was to use all of the pages of a book and incorporate it into their painting. The person in that class who's using my easel is using Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret by Judy Blume. But here's the one I want to show you. I'm not sure what book they're using.

Pretty amazing, huh? I'm not quite there yet in regards to school, of course. But you know. Baby steps.

So, anyway, I think I'm about done here. Sorry it's been so long since I've posted. My grandfather died a little over a week ago, and that's been hard. I'm flying out to Texas for the funeral tomorrow. So it might be a while until I post again as well.

November's Blog of Specialness, as it happens, is Party Poison vs. the World. It can be found on the top of the page. Go click on it. Go on. Shoo.

But now, it's time for Dr. Dog.

Thank you and good night.
