It Has Been A Rough Year

I am adding this additional chapter to my introduction, because after I initially wrote the introduction, it was very difficult to come back to it and try to make sense of all that I have experienced through the various stages of my life and the trials that I have endured or overcome.  I wish ...

Woah man I'm reading some of the people on here and they know how to write. I have no idea. I just write what I think and how it comes out.

Compared to some of these fools though it makes me sound like I'm 12 instead of a hard early 20 something. I never started writing anything in my life before I went online and started a blog, which became boring as hell because no one ever read it and it was like so much work to try and think of interesting things to talk about. I tried to focus on skiing but shit after a while there is only so much you can talk about right. Powder, wet, deeps, damp, freshies, whatever. So then I started a myspace and fb and have a ton of friends of mostly people I have no idea who the hell they are. At least they were reading my shiz. But then it was like all companies so I started looking more at writing.

I don't even know what to write about. Compared to some of these people I have nothing to say really. Didn't go to war, woodstock, even see kirk cobain in concert. Nada.

I always thought writing was lame. Texting is faster, takes too long to get the full thought on when writing. Typing is a little bit better. I can type faster than I can write, but I can't type as fast as I talk, let alone as fast as I think. So like I'll be thinking about stuff to write but then my mind thinks about this Zing and then that Zing and pretty soon I have no freaking clue where or what I was writing about and have to go back and think about it then I lost the train of thought.

I hated English in school man. I have to spell check anything because I can't spell for the life of me.

But writing is actually pretty whack. Right like obviously if I pick up a magainze like Stuff or whatever you can tell that the writing is for dudes - short, kinda pointless. Pick up my girlfriend's Cosmo and Star and it's fluffy and kinda ditzy. Pick up my mom's New Yorker and it's like dayum I can't even figure out what they're talking about.

But it's cool man how different voices of people come through in their writing. Like I can picture some of you all sitting in front of your computers typing and then running off to your life.

Whatever. Just gonna tell my story how I see it. Don't read it if you don't want to.

just write friend

there is something here i read (not sure where) you start by looking at the computer monitor and writing the word "something". Now, you've got something written! :) I like your stories. I hate skiing really but like the dress up and fires.

I *love* reading your writing!

I've never met you, nor any of the people you talk about. But I feel like I know what your voice sounds like, how your way of speaking English sounds, just from your writing, which to my overeducated, snobby-egghead mind, is the hallmark of *good* writing. Believe me, there are scads of old people like me (Gen X'ers in their thirties and forties) trying to imitate how you write, so we sound younger and fresher and make it easier for us to sell you stuff :( And guess what? We all sound like phonies. Keep it up!

nothing wrong with just being your self, it's preferable most of the time.
