An Informative Haiku

My keyboard no longer has a down arrow key. It’s rather unfortunate. The actual place where the key should be is still there, as is the little nubby button that I can press, but really it is not the same. You also never realize just how much you use the down arrow until you no longer have it. Every time I visit a website I use the down arrow to scroll down. Moving my mouse all the way over to the scroll bar and dragging it toward the bottom? Psh. Far too much work. The down arrow is just so convenient.

I’m considering super gluing a cover back on to the little nubby thing so I can use it again; however, I have no idea what the implications of supergluing something to the inside of a keyboard would be. I have a laptop so it’s not like I could just go out and get a new keyboard if it messes it up.

Little down arrow

A black void where you once lay

A triangle – gone

Last night in front of a theater full of strangers I pretended I was Billy Mays having an orgasm

So I got a new bike today. It’s a nice bike, had most of the features I wanted and was affordable, but here’s the thing. I just don’t love it. It’s just ok. The color is nothing special and it doesn’t look nearly as old school as I was hoping for- I wanted a total hipster bike. But if I complain about it I’ll sound spoiled. I just got a new bike! Everything should be awesome! But really, it’s just ok. I guess all I’m hoping for at this point is to accidently come accross the perfect bike really soon so that we can return the alright one. Here’s to hoping.

You really wanted to know what that title was about didn’t you? Well too bad. That’s a story for another day. =)

I Ended This Entry With A Nike Slogan

My goal in life is to lose Never Have I Ever.

If I could go through my life having done everything I could possibly think of, I think I would end up in a very happy place.

If I have to decide between two things to do, I ask myself: “Which could make a better story?”. And then I do that one.

And in case you were wondering, the answer to that question is never just sitting around watching movies or tv, or surfing the web all day, or doing anything that is routine. Routine is boring.

Ever have I skinny dipped with people I don’t know. Ever have I danced in a field of sunflowers at night. Ever have I made friends with the people who work at lazer tag over some coloring books and silly hats. Ever have I chased down strangers with nerf guns. Ever have I broken into spontaneous dance parties at pretty much every place imaginable.

I want to be the person who ends up living their life to the fullest. The one that is full of surprises. The one who has seen the world and seen what lies outside their own back door.

And I’m going to be.

Because sometimes you have to

Just Do It.
