I'm a liar!

[ #33875 ]

One can't imagine how frustrating it is that I cannot seem to find the time and resources to keep up with the journal and write in it anything that I consider to be serious and worthwile in my life... so I'll cope by occasionally writing random observations and minor issues...

I'm a liar: amongst my .sig's I've had for some time (a year, two?) the following:

Fuckin hell how could we resist that?
- Johnny Rotten, Live in Chemsford Prison.

Well, it popped up the other day, and for one thing I corrected it to Chelmsford Prison. Then I checked my archives and found out that it was the Filthy Lucre Live. And knowing what the latter is I'm not sure I want to keep this .sig, but... WTF! In any event and just to be sure, I'm a liar which is coincidence that applies nicely here. But I still prefer the concept as expressed in the Pennywise's No Reason Why (why we lie to ourselves and anyone else!) - even if I feel that applies to a former stage of my life. OTOH we're what our past built. Hence, as I said I must be a liar, and just to be even more sure, nobody's innocent.

  • The biggest realisation I had to come to with this journal is that I don't HAVE to write in it regularly. I'm not a journalist, I can write when I like.

    So depending on how much open source stuff I'm doing, I write with a frequency anywhere between once a day or once a month.
    • I write whenever I get the whim and whenever I think I would somehow benefit from putting something here. Maybe I'd benefit from the reaction of people who might see what I write. Maybe I'd benefit from getting my thoughts in order, as I did yesterday when I started out to ask a question. Maybe I'd just benefit from putting something here so I can find it later.

      If I don't benefit, I don't write.
