I Shouldn’t Make Decisions In The Morning

I hope you have a sarcasm detector, and more importantly, I hope it’s working.

Surprisingly enough, I woke up early today. That never happens. I always oversleep my alarm. I’m thinking of buying ten more. I totally don’t have trouble sleeping or staying asleep.

With tons of free time on my hands, I decided to go back to my high school. I definitely didn’t go back already earlier this month. I miss it so much I have to visit all the time.

Then once I was outside my house, I started to run. Yes, you’re looking at a world-class, long-distance runner. I can even sprint short distances no problem. I’m super fit, okay? I could do 10 km in my sleep easily. What, you think I slowed down and started walking after five minutes of light jogging? Please set your standards for me a little higher.

This goes to prove I shouldn’t make decisions at eight in the morning. Also, I probably shouldn’t draft blog posts at one in the afternoon the same day I didn’t get enough sleep prior to suffocating from a sea of teenage sweat I voluntarily waded in.

I might have gone slightly crazy cooped up in a subway cart. The result? This post.

My life in 3 words: sleep, school, and sarcasm.

I didn’t forget about adverbs in abundance.

Most of what I said was sarcastic by the way if you didn’t catch on, but you probably did because you’re smart. And I’m not being snarky when I say that.


Discussing Blog Decisions I Made When I Was 15

I analyze some of the blogging decisions I made when I was young and naïve. Yay! Don’t you love my enthusiasm? 

Categories: all about writing, all about blogging, etc.

To be completely honest, I don’t know where I got the “all about” from. I could simplify the categories, but I’m too lazy to. No surprise there. 

Name: aspiringwriter22

I still like the name. A lot. I have no intentions to change it. And I cleared up the whole “aspiring writer” thing in a previous post, so I don’t feel like rehashing that again.

Capitalizing: everything 

I capitalize articles in titles. I did this starting out, and I still do. As long as you’re consistent, right?

It’s been three years. Some things just don’t change.

Decision-Making Advice

When making decisions, pick the one you won’t regret.

Or the one you’ll have the least regrets.

Actually, don’t listen to me. In case you haven’t noticed, I’m the worst at making any sort of decision by myself.

So you could say I should learn to take my own advice before doling it out.


Poll—Most Interesting Blog Idea

I’m going to mix things up and throw in a poll today.

Imagine confetti being thrown in the air right about…now.

So because I trust your judgement more than I do mine, I want to know which of the below you would be most interested in reading about.

I know the ideas are random and different from what I normally write about. The article in question won’t be posted on this blog, but on another site. If all goes as planned, I’ll include the link to the article once it’s published so you can marvel at my blogging endeavors (more like horrendous blogging attempts).

Like I said, I trust your judgement and I respect your opinions. It should be obvious by now that I’m the worst at making decisions, which is why I am asking you to decide for me.

I’m leaving a part of my life in your hands. What you choose to do with my life is not up to me.

A Life Decision

I have come to the decision that I want to spend the rest of my life reading, writing, blogging, editing, revising, etc. I don’t want to just pursue writing as a hobby or for fun. I’m serious about it. So serious in fact that I want to study writing and English in post-secondary. Serious enough to go after a career in this industry.

You think I’m crazy, right? Crazy enough to follow my dreams, to listen to my heart, to do something I love?

Then yes, I am crazy.
