Well Some Slow Days

It’s been a few days since I had stepped outside the apt. Today I went outside after 2 days. In the last few days, I’ve just sat around and played online and socialized online. Logging into irc channels (technical  channels for help and helping), watching Star Trek and Chuck on the computer. I finally have the firewall issues fixed on the Windows XP computer so I can VNC into it. Using the laptop running xubuntu, for web surfing and occasional logging into the XP computer for remote control.

It’s been a nice reflection on the past habits of just staying home and doing online activities. But I have also increasingly seen the need to get out more and socialize with “real” people. Soon, I will take care of that, God Willing!

A friend called today to ask if I wanted to hang out. But today just hasn’t been an active day. I told him sorry I couldn’t hang out today. Will talk during the week.

Thanksgiving – A reflection

Thanksgiving is meant to be a time to give thanks for what you’re thankful for. This year was odd for me. Well, every year is odd for me. I typically don’t do well emotionally on days where some type of reflection is involved on the year past. Normally, my year past is always about having sat around and done nothing. In my personal relationships, I don’t tend to do well. I could sit here and write about how I was taught incorrectly and how it might have to do with my environment. But that doesn’t help, so what’s the point?

When I think about what I can do to make a difference, I try to implement that. But then I always come across resistance and with with each year the motivation just comes slower. It’s sort of dawning on me that there’s a reason old people tend to be cynical and pessimistic while young people tend to be vibrant, hopeful and optimistic. I guess enough old people have tried enough on their own to make a change and failed. Or they have seen “realities” of things not being so rosy. And young people tend to be so full of eagerness, willing to give it their best. Undaunted by the mathematical odds.

I feel, I just want to travel the country and be more on the road. The summer trip to California was a little different since there was time deadline and I had to just drive straight thru. But still it was an eye opener as to how nice it is to travel and see new places. Meeting new peope is fine too, but it’s a little old.

Hopefully, next year will have another possibility to travel.
