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] 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 […]

*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 […]

“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 […]

Investing more in my love, foundations, & fundamentals (Monday, August 17th, 2020)

It just occurs to me: my anxiety is so embedded and in some respects so unconscious that in the midst of certain activities, like reading my emails, I race to complete them as quickly as possible as if chores as opposed to meaningful life to-do’s. I’m reading my emails this morning with unusual relaxation this […]

Yago received a bunch of vaccinations yesterday along with oral surgery (one of his bottom mullers was removed)—rabies vaccination, Distemper/Parvo vaccination (“what is Distemper/Parvo?” I wondered. As I read on [1] “Canine Distemper/Parvo Bordetella and Rabies Vaccine”; no author named, published November 27, 2011 – where I was directed when I landed on an […]

We who believe we try our best (Friday, August 14th, 2020)

Our dog Yago is spending the day at the… shall I call it the veterinarian’s office? The veterinary facility? The veterinary hospital? (I shall not call it “the Vet” because it makes me think of our veterans and I’d like them to have their own words.) First day without Mr. Yago (I like to call […]

*SHOW ME THE MONEY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!* (Thursday, August 13th, 2020)

Well… I faced my fear yesterday and created my first “donation button” for this here diary blog of mine. Why did I fear it? As I verbalized it in a passage from a draft of the introduction essay I’m working on: “It’s difficult for me to say because I don’t think I’m ‘so special’ or […]
