Happy Thanksgiving

I would like to wish everyone a happy Thanksgiving. Your Comic Relief has a comic related thanksgiving post up. I'm going to be taking the rest of the day off after writing that though. Tomorrow though I plan to take on Darren Rowse, the problogger himself, so make sure to check back.

Thoughts On Blogging

Blogging is something I that enjoy quite a bit. I don't make money from it, nor do I intend to; I know those Adsense banners are up there, but they function as more of a real-time google analytics for me rather than a functional money source. I run three blogs currently, although I have tried getting into a number of topics. Right now I run Your Comic Relief and Online Fencing Coach in addition to this one. In the past I have had a haphazard approcach to updating, a few here, a few there, nothing really regular. This one has been the least regular of all, and I simply put stuff up here when it strikes me, although I have resolved to update this more as well. I read several blogs about blogging, the most prominant of them being Problogger.
In the past I have had an inconsistant update schedule because of college etc, I'd get swamped, and get behind on updating or reading comics (the source material for Your Comic Relief), and then abandon the whole idea alltogether for some period of time before picking it up again. However, now with a job I'm starting to update with a greater frequency, although, as I work two jobs, one at a flower shop, and the other coaching fencing (and I'm going to start volunteer coaching at a high school in the near future as well), I generally get home around 10:30, write some posts, and then crash. The message here is that, while I have a less variability from day to day, I also seem to have more work every day, and blogging has become something of a release. Generally during the day I end up communicating to the outside world via Twitter. I've had that floating around in my head today, and it feels good to get it down on 'paper.' Hopefully I won't get too burned out with the blogging anytime soon.

Stuff about YouTube

My brother showed me this today, pretty funny stuff. By the way, what's up with this YouTube Live thing? Does anyone really understand what the heck it is?

Really Weird Dream I Had

So I woke up today, and for some reason I was incredibly paranoid that every time my cell phone alarm went off that I had lost Two Hundred Dollars so whatever it was going to. I don't even remember. It was incredibly bizarre, but I was seriously concerned about this.

Studying for the GRE's

I'm taking a GRE class, which I payed out the ass for. But I need to learn words. I'm ok at the math, I just make idiot mistakes. So I'm thinking I should make a list of words to learn each week or something, the guy says to learn 5 a day, I feel like that's preposterous, and I've tried to learn lots of words, know them for a while, and then forget them, like canard. I forgot that the other day, but I did know it a month ago. (GRE studying has been a long process). That's my thought for the night, I should get some sleep though work in the morning. Have to talk about that later too.

Nifty Phobia (Fear) website

Surfing the internet yesterday while watching Discovery Channel - I heard some phobia name I had not heard before. Me being me, I looked it up, and found a whole site devoted to cool phobia names. Check it out:
