Toilet paper? Really?!

I had some extra time today to sit down and think. Like, really think. What I finally came to realize is that toilet paper really sucks. I get that it serves a purpose, but it's 2017! Are you really trying to tell me that the best thing we have for that particular job is paper? I have a phone that allows me to video chat with almost anyone, almost anywhere. Yet, this tiny roll of paper is the best solution for the particular problem I was having at the time. I don't see a satellite in space to handle this particular problem, but I think to expect this....roll...to be sufficient is almost a joke.

I guess it makes sense; it really not something that anyone wants to spend any time really thinking about what goes on in the bathroom. It's gross, embarrassing, and down right disgusting. Does that mean that we shouldn't take a stab at making the whole experience just a little bit better? I have had the great fortune to travel overseas and experience, shall we say other?, modes of cleaning up. None of these were particularly my forte, but it was a nice revelation to see that at least someone is thinking about this concerning problem.

Alright; let's think of the solution. What is a better substitute that simply rolling up paper and wiping your nether region?

Day One: The Great Awakening (Or The Man Who Knew Too Little)

I used to be convinced that I hated change. Abhorred it even. Change caused everything to spin out of control. It was a terrible domino effect which upended even the minute moments of my life. Fuck change and those who suggested it. But I came to some self-realization recently that I didn't hate change; I was just scared of it. Terrified really.

In retrospect, it seems laughable that I was under any impression that I was in "control". I mean, sure, I have control over the mundane day to day aspects of my life. What time I get up, what I wear, the attitude that I bring with me. But there is a pretty good portion of it where I am not in control. The other drivers on the road, the attitudes of other people, the endless vast of space between myself and the rest of the universe that is being held together by only the tiniest bit of coincidence and happenstance. But I digress. 

I think I am at a point in my life where I need to start welcoming change. Sure thing, but where does one start?  I've been avoiding any change for as long as I can remember, so it makes it tough to find a place to start. I've been kind of thinking that just admitting that change is needed, necessary really, is a great place to start. Yea, I know. It's really hard to continue typing with both of my hands currently patting my own back. 

So, now that I have mastered change, where does one go from here? I'm not really sure; that's what I am here to found out. 

I think that I am going to end these things with a song. Why the fuck not?

Goodbye Facebook, Hello Blogger

I'm not entirely sure what it is I am looking to accomplish here, but I do know that I am done with Facebook.

No long diatribe against the man, or whatever it is that Facebook represents.

No hateful words about fake people are on there and that they only post happy pictures.

I'm just done.

It's never been a big part of my life, so it makes it real easy to walk away.

That's it.

Goodbye Facebook, Hello Blogger.
