Hopefully tomorrow (Monday, August 24th, 2020)

Spent much of the day polishing my introductory essay: “My Aesthetics of Internetism & Self Improvement, i.e., An Introduction to my Diary Blog.” Lost track of time. I meant to alternate back and forth between revising a little here and there and noting here thoughts based on those revisions. Usually I finish a post by…latest […]

Project ideation for improving internet Presence (Sunday, August 23rd, 2020)

I began my first readings on web development/design coding: HTML code, courtesy of the Mimo App. [1]https://getmimo.com/ It did teach certain basics, such as the concepts of “opening tag” and “closing tag”; “element,” “body of a webpage,” “empty tag,” and heading options as well as how to code italics and bold. My only first impression […]

Exploring slogan creation and north west-ish New Jersey (Saturday, August 22nd, 2020)

Might my slogan benefit from yet more clarity? “the diary as a literary genre; self improvement focused introspection and constructive, humanistic extrospection for motifs” For example, is a self-improvement focus not crucial to extrospection as much as introspection? Moreover, is self-improvement not constructive? One cannot quite improve that which is beyond one’s self without first […]

*I* am the ‘piano’ man; *i* am the sultan of swing; A sense of SOUL: intelligence; especially the emotions of ‘interest’ and ‘love’ (Friday, August 21st, 2020)

Thou shalt not engage in social media communication at bed time (and especially not if one is especially tired and/or mixing that context with alcohol!) for one may wake up thinking “oh fuck, did I really say that? Can’t I just press delete and pretend I never did? What the hell was I thinking? Or […]

Today I played the idiot, artist, & web designer (Thursday, August 20th, 2020)

“We’re idiots, babe It’s a wonder we can even feed ourselves” So sings Bob Dylan in his song “Idiot Wind” “I cannot rise above my lazy habit,” as Cesare Pavese wrote in his diary on October 11th, 1935. And just the day before he wrote: “there is a blind spot in my work…a material limitation […]

Trying to create a home page with Elementor…(Tuesday, August 18th, 2020)

Yesterday I mentioned how my anxiety often causes me to feel so rushed, so in a hurry and I notice this morning that there is yet more on my list of meaningful things I’ve overlooked. (Reminds me of that line from John Lennon’s song “Mother”: he sings, Children, Don’t do what I have done I […]

Sexual Orientation, Philosophy, & Evidence (Friday, July 24th, 2020)

The Role of Philosophy in Forming Certain Sexual Thoughts, Feelings, Desires, and Speculations One reason it’s so hard for some of us to think about and discuss sex openly and comfortably, I suspect (and I emphasize the word “suspect”; just like the cops identify someone as a suspect but can’t yet compile quite enough EVIDENCE […]

on trying to think positively (preliminary draft)

Having a psychotherapist for a father always seemed like a privilege to me and for multiple reasons. (*)On a very basic/fundamental level, since my father enjoyed discussing psychology even outside of work, and since he was also an amateur artist (not so much “amateur” in the sense of downplaying the depth or evocativeness of his […]
