I sit in the Redding library, and have for the first time ever, completed an application to get online use of PayPal services. I think my being goaded into the tech world is wild, and I have endured a certain level of criticism. In my blogging, I accept that twenty-three year olds across the globe effectively use html, and accomplish alliances with those that do; they create blogs with stylish layout, multiple links, and copious amounts of pictures to entice readership.
I want to say I dedicate myself to my tech minimalist lifestyle, though the demands of my own communications quickly force me to advance my own techie knowledge to accelerate my own ability to share information, quickly, and cheaply across the globe, with a minimum of effort on my part.
I have had friends who shared with me that as a man who looks for more money, more resources, I should consider getting online sponsorship for my blog. Sponsorship in blogging is an intersting concept, and I have sat watching public television, wondering : what would sponsorship do to me, and to my website. Can I be assured that the friendships I make, the information I share, maintain its integrity when I look to outside sponsorship in my blogging?
So, I had to reach here to some serious reflection on the world of sponsorship, and I look to Mike Myers, who here, in this clip expounds on the challenges inherent in "selling out."
Regarding the day of my birthday. I embroiled myself in a wonderful conversation with a friend online, thrilled to enjoy Redding when the smoke in the air seemed lighter than usual.
I chatted in a Redding coffee house with my bahasa instructor. I felt sad as to the fact that my conversation came to an abrupt end when she disappeared into a deep sleep without telling me. This tells me much about my ability to maintain a person's interest. Sad, having no idea what happened, I disappeared into a Japanese restaurant to eat my sorrows away.
Caveat emptor. Beware any Japanese restaurant that would give you a fortune cookie. I finished my bento box. I opened up my fortune cookie, and read the little paper inside. It read : For better luck, you have to wait till spring. Anyone getting superstitious today?
