Hello! I’m going to do a random post for you folks because my brain has been afire lately with things I’m still trying to sort out into coherent writing.
I originally found this idea on The Write Transition and she found it on benzeknees . Check both of those blogs out and give them some love. That’s an order.
I thought this was a fun idea and have been having so many writing ideas lately (incomplete pieces of ideas, don’t get too excited for me) that I can’t seem to finish one single thing. I’ll get there though and at least I’m writing. You can’t force being awesome, it just comes naturally. (I swear, I really am modest, haha.)
So, without further adieu, I’ll take this lighter fare post and run with it. Maybe you’ll find we have some things in common or maybe you’ll finally go running in the other direction like I’ve always suspected you might. (I’m looking at all you non-communicative followers, haha.) It’s a risk I’m willing to take!
Five Things I’m Passionate About
-The pursuit of knowledge
-Reading & Writing! They go hand in hand, folks. “If you don’t have time to read, you don’t have the time (or the tools) to write. Simple as that.” –Stephen King (I’m fairly certain he knows what he’s talking about.)
-Science (Both fiction and real!) Want to watch Star Trek and contemplate an alternate universe?
-Anthropology and human history
Five Things I Would Like To Do Before I Die
-Write a novel or five
-Travel to Europe & Asia, maybe live in Europe for a time (Let’s take some historical tours!)
-Live to see space exploration become a primary, cooperative, continuously funded avenue for humans. Make it a priority!
-Find a Time Lord, travel with him/her, gloat to all my friends.
-Fall in love over and over again with life. Never stop appreciating the whole damn thing.
Five Things I Say A Lot
-Fuckity fuck and every variation I can muster
-I love Deep Space Nine
-I wish… or I hope… or I really love…
5 Books or Magazines I Have Read Lately
It’s been awhile since I actually finished a book, I read a lot but I keep starting new things, so I’ll shoot yah a few of my current reads and maybe a blog or two that I enjoy:
-The Stand by Stephen King (Disclaimer, do not read this book when you have a severe cold. It will freak you out and possibly give you nightmares helped along by medication. Also, don’t read it before bed every night. You know what, just don’t read Stephen King before bed at all.)
-Cosmos by Carl Sagan
-Fear and Loathing In Las Vegas by Hunter S. Thompson
-Matt’s blog (This is honestly my new favorite blog and I think you should definitely check it out.)
-Zodiac Unmasked: The Identity of America’s Most Elusive Serial Killer Revealed by Robert Graysmith
Five Favorite Movies
My choices are telling of how refined I am, prepare to be amazed. Thank goodness this didn’t ask top five favorites because that would be impossible. Here are some I revisit and/or reference frequently.
-The 5th Element
-Indiana Jones…really any of the original three, I can never pick a favorite
-Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back
-When Harry Met Sally
-Lord of The Rings: The Return of The King
I can’t believe how long it took me to complete this little thing. What do you think? Was it a waste of time? Do you plan on doing it? Do any of my answers surprise you? Am I asking you too many questions?
