I'm a college graduate who focused almost all of his time on his studies and now wants to take a break from that life and see what he can do in the real world by making something of himself.
What does that mean? Well it means that more schooling is in my future but for now I want to get out all the game related thoughts I suppressed for 4 and a half years during my studies. That's what this blog is all about.
Do I have higher aspirations for being on Dtoid? ABSOLUTELY! I hope to be a paid writer someday (anywhere really but to be paid on Dtoid would be a dream come true). That's a nice little fantasy. But it's not about the work, it's about forcing myself to keep on writing.
I currently write the following features:
A famous feminist (it could have been Luce Irigaray but I could be wrong) once told women to write. Just write. Even if what comes out is cheesy, just do it. What you write is better than what you haven't written. Unfortunately, this man took her advice. (Is that so bad? Probably. I don't know. I'm not big on politics.)
As you probably have guessed from the title of this blog, I have an issue with procrastination. That is to say: I do it. A lot. The sad thing is, it's become a way of life for me. I'll have an amazing idea that must be pursued and about halfway through another idea will either pop up or I'll lose interest and then move on to the next thing. (Perhaps I have a form of ADD, I wouldn't know. I haven't been to the doctor in 15 years).
Even now I'm trying ever so much to avoid procrastinating this blog. It's hard. Extremely difficult in fact. It's taken all my strength to just write my initial thoughts without pursuing backseated notions of going to social media sites, or working on more job applications or watching more videos (say I haven't been to Angry Video Game Nerd's site for about three months, I'm sure I can-NO! MUST. FIGHT IT.)
Look, what I'm trying to get at here is, my procrastination is reaching chronic levels. I have been visiting Destructoid's website since 2007 and have never bothered registering. Why? Because what's the use? I'm a procrastinator. I have to admit my problem before I can fix. Unfortunately I procrastinated going through the process of stopping my procrastination. If procrastination were a religion I'd be the Pope and I'd do nothing all day. Nothing.
But that's what this is all about: me fighting the flicker effect*. It IS possible. It just requires a series people like that will get me back on here on a scheduled basis. Will I be daily? Haha-ERM I mean *ahem* doubtful. Will I be weekly? Most likely. Perhaps Fridays will be Dtoid Day.
Sound good enough.
Anyways this was my delayed "hello," and opening question to you all:
Do you procrastinate? (The answer better be ye-)ERM I MEAN ANSWER HONESTLY, PLEASE.
What is something you REALLY want to do but keep procrastinating?
*Flicker Effect (n): Much like pod-fading but with blogging. A blogger appears and disappears after a variety of hiatuses. Flicker Effect applies to game development (delayed games), comics creating (large gaps between issues) and tv shows.
**Yes I made it up. I'll be making more words up as we go along. Is that okay your highness? Can I take this breath now while I'm at it? Alright. Thanks Kingy.
