Medium me

You could say at any given time during the day at any given time during the week things are going about average. I'm not happy, I'm not sad, I'm just existing. I'm there and not there at the same time. If I was in the DSM-V, I would be categorized as having Dysthymic Disorder.

My Jeopardy dream categories are:

  • Future Technology.
  • Video games from the 1980s to now.
  • Photoshop.
  • Ninjas.
  • Film techniques.
  • The history of art in Mesopotamia.
  • The Princess Bride.
  • How to organize a music server file system.
  • PSP Hacking.
  • The Information Super Highway.

I'm well versed in things that don't matter. I'm a very medium person.

I lead a pretty medium life. I have a medium car, a medium residence, make a medium salary. I have a medium body type, not skinny, not fat. A medium attitude. Medium taste in just about everything from clothing to food to movies. If I had to turn in a summation of myself in one word or less, that word would be medium.

Nothing about me really stands out. I just fold along the dotted line, down the center of life.

It wasn't always like this. I was the kid who could draw just about anything, I was into photography and making movies. Creativity man, that was my bag.

I have to get out of the medium rut. I need to, for the betterment of my being.

I'm Downloading these language CDs and I'm going to learn Japanese if it kills me. I've always wanted to learn another language and falling back on the excuse that my brain doesn't work that way is getting old. I'm going to start a web comic, I'm around far too many funny people to not. Plus I can draw. I'm looking into taking A+ classes. I need to start learning again. I'm getting back into the gym.

Hopefully I'll have some more categories added to that list very soon.

I think you should list ChronoTrigger as its own separate category.

Also, I want copies of those Japanese CDs. It's something I've been meaning to do as well. And if all goes well, then I'm serious about a trip to Japan next August.

Also also, I think Kelly got lucky with the A+ thing and you should find something else. Just my .02. Worked for her, but most folks doing that aren't driving BMWs, ya know. Play to your strengths. You're OCD about organizing stuff. Learn some database stuff. It's not as hard as it looks. Start with MySQL.

I have that Rosetta Stone program for Japanese if you want to use it. I found that it's actually pretty good.

I need to get back into my Japanese language studies as well.

We could be study buddies!!!

..wait...

That sounded gay...
