I apologize with apologies...

I lied. Last time I wrote here was back in June and I definitely didn't ever post the random thoughts that crossed my mind. I thought about it, though. They say it's the thought that counts. What a load of crap.

A blunt death threat from a friend is why I'm posting. He said that if I didn't have a new post by the end of the day then he would kill a member of my family. This is the kind of positive peer pressure that I need. I thrive on it.

Apologies and death threats aside, I think my WPM has gone down 316% since 8th grade. Remember the Jr. High days of MSN instant messenger? I do. I thrived on those as well. That was where I learned to type--and quickly too. It was a beautiful time of life when you could go home, log onto MSN instant messenger, and talk with all those cute girls you would never dare to approach in person at. Those were the days of 'brb' and 'gtg' and 'lol' and 'ttyl' and 'lmfao' and 'omg' and 'c u l8r' (which takes more time to type out than the actual phrase but is a lot cooler). I'm pretty sure I must have been tapping away at around 130-145 WPM in my prime. No joke.

Now I'm tapping away at what must be a meager 300 words every other month, which equals about one blog post. Pitiful.
