Dust In My Eyes

So I’ve managed to import an old backup of this blog and restore move than 500 entries and about 700 comments. Never realized there was so much here but I guess 600MB sql file should have been a clue.

So as I’m importing the entries and cleaning up old image tags and dead links, I start to read a few of these old posts. I was a hot ass mess during my twenties. But who isn’t? I reminisced, I laughed out loud a few times, my eyes even watered up. With the database issues I was having before, I used it as way to have a clean slate. Everything is about Tumblr and Snapchat, who cares about domain hosted blogs anymore? In the few hours I spent going through comments and posts, I remembered why these are important. Like a photo album, its good to go back and see how you’ve change, grown and mature.

Luckily, I don’t like my keyboard get me in trouble as it did back then.

The Anti-Social Network


Rumors about me being naked on the Internet are completely false… I’m only half naked on the Internet.

I’ve been switching gears and living a little out of the box when it comes to social networks lately. I’m on the verge of deleting several networking accounts, because either I fail to care about the site, ignore the site entirely or initially signed up due to social pressure. Recently I have come into the understanding that ultimately I am not a social animal, whether it’s in person or virtually. So what does that mean? Well, as the year finishes out, I’ll be evaluating all the sites and networks that I’m a member of and determining whether or not membership is fruitful, beneficial or even necessary. Right now I know that sites like Flickr and Qik are getting the ax immediately. I have nothing against those sites, but I’m not sharing as many photos and videos to necessitate membership and I’m using other sites to do the same functions. I feel as if I’m spread a little too thin across too many social sites and things get neglected like Negro Vs Nerd. So right now, I’m have log in credentials for 10-12 social networking sites and hopefully I can narrow that number down to 5-6.

BTW… the reason for the skin on Tumblr? I’m grown and you only live once it’s a lesson in self-acceptance.
