Yesterday I figured out when I became lazy, about three years ago when I made my initial reddit account, I couldn't remember what I did before reddit, like my head couldn't wrap itself around the idea of not procrastinating watching dank memes on reddit. I remember three years ago loving making youtube videos, loved editing, loved using photoshop, loved so many things.
Now that's not to say reddit has been all bad, I mean I lost 15 kg thanks to them, the weird part is I lost it because of a subreddit called "fat people hate", I started loving photography, I made the bed I lay on every night because of the "do it yourself" sub, reddit has been something to me, but before reddit I found enjoyment on the internet doing what I wanted to do, now I use reddit to see what other people have done and loathe on the fact I will never be able to do it, it became my new facebook, oh look how great everyone else's live is, don't you wish yours was this great?
Reddit became a scapegoat, I let it go too far into my mind, I know all their inside jokes, I know when certain reposts have been posted before, before clicking on a link I know the top comment.
So yesterday I decided to block reddit.com to see what I will do other than browse reddit, and right now it's 10:30 AM and I have done everything I usually do in a full day.. I can't beleive how much of my life reddit was until I decided not to use it, think about it like this;
So I just freed up more than half my day to doing.. stuff.
What made me stop is Adam Kovic from Funhaus saying that you should follow your goals and than Gavin on the latest podcast saying that he never procastinated to get where he is today, if that was the case he would be laying on his couch at home now, and as someone laying on a couch, that shit hits hard man.
So after making a cup of coffee, editing a youtube video which I haven't done in about a year, using Adam Kovic's photoshop tutorial to make the thumbnail, going for a run with my dog, uploading the video, I got to the point where I pretty much have free time for the next 3 hours.. So I wanted to check R... R.. R.. shit.. ROOSTERTEETH, right because we just got a brand new home, a brand new sexy home overlay.
So let me rant about that rather than procrastinate on that other site.
I absolutely love the new design, everything is big enough to fit a screen, on the previous site the text, the video player, everything was tiny, here on the big boy site I can read without staring at my screen from like 10 centimeters away, I absolutely love it.
The modern look of the site is sexy as hell, I'm not the biggest fan of minimalism but this sort of modern design (or Metro or whatever Windows calls it, flat for google, every company has a different name for it) is the perfect fit for me, it's minimalistic but not bland, it's flat but not boring, I absolutely love the look of it, and though it's still in the launch week and I can't be expecting perfection, it's pretty damn good. Though the video player is laggy, the site is slow, it look good.
This site vs the old site is like opening windows on a 70 year old house to let new air in, it's a breath of fresh air, and I am only on this site for 3 years, I can't imagine seeing the same thing for 12. (jesus the site was almost as old as me, I'm 17, I was 5 when the site came about, oh god.)
Soooooo.. I have no idea how to close this..
What do you write as a closing to a journal? .. uhhh UHHH
HERE HAVE A DOG
