Sorry for the lack of blogging of late, but I was away at the lake to celebrate Canada Day, which involved booze and fireworks. How that pays homage to our dear, dear country I am not entirely clear, but it was fun nonetheless. The highlight of the weekend was when I saw Jon Gosselin on the beach. At least I'm pretty sure that it was him. It was an Asian guy with a diamond earring, so I think it's pretty clear cut. And I just have to say: that guy is a straight up A-hole. Talk about conceited. He refused to even acknowledge me when I called his name. Finally I approached him and asked for his autograph, but he outright refused, saying that he didn't know what the f**k I was talking about. And he didn't even have his kids with him! Well he did have two kids with him but they weren't the ones that I saw on the show, so I don't really know where they came from. Maybe he has other kids out there somewhere. I don't know. Anyways. The whole experience was very insulting.
Anyways. In lieu of a post I am going to post song lyrics from my favorite song by MC (which is Miley Cyrus in case you don't know, although how you could not know that is beyond me.) Anyways, this song always picks me up when the chips are down, writing wise, which is pretty much always in my case. I see it, in my minds eye, as that song that plays in the background if my life were to be made into a TV movie (which it probably wouldn't, cuz it would probably suck, but) when it shows various sequences of me, tired and forlorn and sitting in front of the computer at night writing doggedly, sometimes furiously and sometimes slowly, towards an end that I am completely unsure about.
I can almost see it, that dream I'm dreaming
But there's a voice inside my head, saying "you'll never reach it"
Every step I'm taking, every move I make, feels lost with no direction
My faith is shaking
But I gotta keep trying, gotta keep my head held high.
There's always gonna be another mountain.
I'm always gonna wanna make it move.
Always gonna be an uphill battle.
Sometimes I'm gonna have to lose.
Ain't about how fast I get there. Ain't about what's on the other side.
It's the climb.
The struggles I'm facing. The chances I'm taking.
Sometimes might knock me down. But no I'm not breaking.
I may not know it, but these are the moments I'm gonna remember most, yeah.
Just gotta keep going.
And I, I got to be strong. Just keep pushing on.
Anyways, that is all for now.
