Ramblings

I have a few rambling thoughts before I go to bed.  None of them are Today’s Perfect Moment–so if that is what you came for, you could stop reading now, but I sincerely hope that you don’t.

On Blogging

I was doing a good job at first finding things to blog about.  Lately, possibly due to a lack of outside stimuli, I don’t have much to blog about.  I am happy that technology allows me to contact people and keep my job, but as good as that is, it doesn’t always equate to a Perfect Moment.  I haven’t given up on the Perfect Moment, but after a day of online teaching, they are seemingly more elusive than before.

On Entertainment

I have started watching Stargate Universe.  I picked up these DVD’s a long time ago.  I remember they were quite cheap and up near the checkout at Best Buy.  I think they were next to the complete Rat Patrol series–not sure why I didn’t pick them up, but I found them on YouTube a short time later.  I like the show and I appreciate Science Fiction that is character driven and only uses the effects to enhance the story.  It is definitely the darkest entry in the series, but that’s not a bad thing.  Maybe it was influenced by the look of the rebooted Battlestar Galactica–or vice versa.

I have been watching a lot of videos on woodworking and woodworking shop organization.  There are a lot of creative and talented people out there.  They are making a lot of cool stuff.  They also seem to get a lot of free stuff from tool companies or glue companies or accessories companies.  I guess I misunderstood YouTube.  You probably don’t make any real money from the channel, but maybe your hobbies or passions get funded.  Doesn’t seem like a bad trade-off to me.

Weather

I seem to write a lot about weather.  Now that my view is mostly the from window of my office/teaching studio/hobby room while teaching, the weather does seem a little bit weird.  My girlfriend described today’s weather so precisely.  She said that Winter and Spring were having a tug of war.  Since it was sunny, then snowed, was sunny again, then snowed again, then became grey, I have to admit she might be right.

Using my time

I might be tired from working, but I am not completely worn out from the commute.  As a result, I am getting a bit more done around the house.  I make a to do list every day.  While I don’t get them all done, I do managed to cross some of them off the list.  I consider that a win.

About Anthony

I am: equal parts rebel, romantic and shockingly average Joe. a writer trapped inside of an ESL teacher's body. an introverted attention seeker. a teacher who hopes one day to be called "Captain, my Captain." an intellectual who can do some very dumb things. a person whose Japan experience, despite being so long ago, still exerts a strong influence upon him. a lover of books, music, beer, hockey and Pizza.

    I enjoyed SGU and was conflicted that it didn’t continue. It prompted me to go back and watch the entire SG1 and SGA series once again. I even managed to see the movies that I hadn’t seen before. Took me over a year to watch then all!

      I quite liked SG1. I think the concept lent itself well to a franchise series. I haven’t watched a lot of SGA because I don’t have the space channel. I’ve seen a bunch of disjointed episodes and I only have an overall feel for the series.

    YouTube actually does pay their stars the big bucks! They get paid by amount of views, subscribers, & likes, I am pretty sure.
