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 […]

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 […]

* “Work” * (Saturday, August 15th, 2020)

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 vetstreet.com [1] “Canine Distemper/Parvo Bordetella and Rabies Vaccine”; no author named, published November 27, 2011 – where I was directed when I landed on an […]

*Internetism replacing postmodernism? Substance, replacing superficial money schemes?* (Wednesday, August 12th, 2020)

A new domain name! — — — seanoconnordiary.blog — Why did I do it? I wanted my blog’s exterior identity to align more precisely with what it is or what I strive for it to be. Before, the blog was just a hub for my miscellaneous “literature” or “creative writings.” Now, it is more specific […]

The sunny high that one can feel while reflecting on an excellent day (Monday, August 10th, 2020)

Yesterday was one of the best days of my life thus far! (What other days compare? The day Ashley and I got married and the days of our honeymoon week driving to and from Myrtle Beach are certainly up there. The week or so when Ashley and I drove to and from Portland, Maine. You […]
