I don’t want to start with “good evening” on every single post I make, but it’s safe to assume that almost all of my posts will be posted (or at least wrote and edited) hours after the sun has gone down… at least during winter time. I think I’m slowly starting to become nocturnal, and while it’s not totally a bad thing… I’d rather be somewhat normal and have a normal schedule.
Before I get to today’s post on Day 2! Of my Blogging 101 course, I’d just like to say two things… #1 that I finally got my Wreck This Journal Everywhere! Although it (AND Wreck This Journal) really doesn’t seem as fun as I thought it would be. I need to look at every single page though. And I want to start it tonight, especially since it snowed today! And I believe one of the questions says to drag it around, outside, on a string. Although maybe it might be a little more creative if I waited until tomorrow and drug it around in the dirty, grey gutter snow? Let me know, since I have to go out tomorrow anyway to dose just like every other day. So, let me bang out this post so I can clean my bathroom, take a shower, and go on with my horrible* life… and when I say that, I mean that I’m probably going to start on Day 3 since it was posted a little more than an hour ago (I live in NJ, USA [EST -5] and I’m started writing this around 8:15pm). #2 Thank you to all of the WONDERFUL people who liked and commented my previous post, which was Day 1 of Blogging 101. I’d also like to thank all of you who decided to follow me after reading it… or any of my other posts. It really, truly means a lot to me that you guys, my new fans! Actually want to “hear” (read) what I have to say! UGH, SO HAPPY ❤ ❤ Alright, on with the show!
For today’s lesson, I’m supposed to “edit my title and tagline”. My first thought was something like “OMG NO WAY DUDE; IT TOOK ME *DAYS* TO THINK OF “THOUGHTS GONE AWRY; I’M NOT BEAT!” But at the end, I was told that if I’m “already thrilled”, I can still publish a post. Great! Because although I really do like my tagline as well, I don’t mind having to change it; mainly because it’s already used in my bio. Speaking of my bio, I still need to update it to the new one that I wrote for yesterday’s lesson.
Surprisingly, it didn’t take long at all to come up with my tagline since I just copied and pasted it from my Twitter, @blo0dchild. Ha, funny… but in all seriousness, it really didn’t take that long to think up. And as mentioned before, I hate writing bios. And this is kind of the same thing. I mentioned somewhere
OKAY IT’S NOW ALMOST 10:30, FML! DUDE, I HATE WHEN THIS HAPPENS… Okay, my dad ordered pizza a little bit before I started writing. When it got here, I figured I’d watch a couple of videos on YouTube while I ate so I don’t get ick all over my keyboard. +60 minutes later, I’m watching pointless, mind-numbing videos about hip hop artists in the Illuminati. Thank god I came to when I did, or I’d still be watching. Anyways, back to what I was talking about…
Great, I forgot where I was going with that. Ahh well. Tagline… alright, basica I REMEMBERED!!! WOW! Alright, I was talking about how getting opinions on blog names from a couple of friends. One friend suggested I use the work “junkie”, but I declined because I really don’t want to focus on using and all that good stuff. But maybe incorporating my addiction and mental illness in my tagline could work? And be cute and funny with it. Something like .. “the thoughts and ______ of a crazy ex junkie”. I almost always describe myself as a “crazy ex junkie” anyway, so I’ll run with it. But the word “thoughts” is already in my title, so I don’t want to repeat it. And I can’t think of another word to go in there. Maybe scratch that all together, and put “the rants and raves of a crazy ex junkie”? But then it just seems as if I’m doing reviews and opinion pieces and stuff.
…the ruminating journal of a crazy ex junkie…
ramblings, nonsense, babble, thought, ponder, contemplate, complain, gripe, chatter, praise, scatterbrained, frivolous, whimsical, lost in thought, abstracted, out to lunch (lol), unpredictable, volatile,
Okay, I’ve come to the conclusion that my new tagline will be… “the unpredictable writings of a volatile ex junkie”.
I changed “crazy” to “volatile” simply because I liked all of the synonyms for volatile on Thesaurus.com. And I’m definitely unpredictable, would you agree? I mean, sometimes I can write legit, intellectual stuff… but other times, I can also write ignorant nonsense <~~~ I’M WARNING YOU NOW. I also wanted to change “journal” simply because it didn’t sound right with everything else.
I’m pleasantly surprised that thinking of a new tagline only took a half hour, oh snap! I’m off to edit, post, and
continue watching Illuminati videos.
Before I go, I want to give a little shout out to Mass he? (only left an e-mail address, but I figured he was a guy because his email address has the name “Spencer” in it) commented, on my previous post and asked some pretty important questions: What do you do all day? How do you survive if you don’t work? Well, Mr. Mass… here’s you answer (I actually commented back to him, but I figured it I’d also add to this post so more people could see it :)):
You ask why I do all day and how do I survive if I don’t work. I *GRATEFULLY* live at my dad’s with him and my sister .. the only thing that sucks about living with him (I don’t mind living with her, expect for the fact that she never puts her dishes in the dishwasher!) is that it really, truly seems like he’s pushing my buttons ON PURPOSE so I can freak out and he can kick me out AGAIN. Again? Yeah, a few years ago, BEFORE I even started getting high (on heroin… he never cared that I smoked pot) because I freaked out on him for doing his button pushing thing. What I mean by that is that freaks out on me for *ABSOLUTELY NO REASON* (here’s one – he freaked out on me tonight actually for not telling him there was no more color safe bleach, and he couldn’t do his *ANY* laundry because of it! #1 I never use that shit, and neither does my sister #2 he damn well knew he was running low OBVIOUSLY since he’s the only one who uses it!!!), so I freak out back, and boom I’m in the crisis center or holding because he called the cops on a false accusation, and because he’s the homeowner and I’m documented crazy, he wins 😦 I survive on “government handouts” lol as I like to call them; food stamps and Medicaid. Unfortunately I’m not receiving welfare (cash assistance) but I really don’t care because if I do extra work around the house, my dad buys me smokes. Andd I sleep all day. Literally hahaha. Seriously though, for some reason I’m nocturnal, and I try SO hard to get into a normal thing, and fail miserably. So I wake up around 2-3pm, go to IOP (and dose) from 4-7pm (or sometimes 8pm), and then chill out until around 6-7am, and do it all over again!
I SERIOUSLY hate thinking of tags (and categories); I hope there’s a lesson on it.
