Conflict of Interest

Posted in Uncategorized on 11/29/2010 by Christopher Balcer

You ever have one of those, friends? Well I have. And they suck. And I have one right now. And it sucks, big time. For my own physical health, I’ll not delve into details here, but I’ll just be concise and say that it involves matters of the heart, at least as far as the romanticized version of the heart goes. (I don’t actually have an issue with my blood pump.) The conflict lies between two things- what I want to do, and what I should do. Should I take a path that gratifies my selfish desires, that makes me feel good through simple satisfaction of what I want, damn the consequences? Or should I do what’s right, and take the path that might cause me some pain, but will in the end be better for all involved? Both seem equally appealing and unappealing in different aspects, and I can’t decide. Good and evil, right and wrong, pathos and logos. It’s a dichotomy that’s torn me quite in two, and I really dislike it.

On a more positive note… this is my second third post this month! Holy crap! It might be something slightly negative, but damn it, this blog is for how I feel, and what I think about things.

I always find it amusing that I defend myself from imaginary detractors that are amongst my readers. I suppose I’m just covering for myself? I don’t really know. In any case, that about sums up the important things I wanted to say. So have a good one, and drive safe, it’s slicker than whale shit on a glacier out there.

I just don’t understand it. Memes I get. Incessant repetition of memes, I suppose I understand, although I borderline abhor it. All this “like, reblog, re-like, re-reblog about the blogging of the blogger who you blogged about” BLA BLA BLA. A blog is supposed to be a weB LOG. A log about YOU. Not the things you like. Granted, the things you like should be a part of the blog, as they are a part of you. HOWEVER. You should at least have someĀ  personal content on there. You know, shit about you. Personal info, rants, issues, whatever. Not just scrolling through countless pages, wasting Internets fuel, looking and looking until you find a meme that you like and feel “represents you” or something. Now, I understand some Tumblers DO put personal information and treat their assigned portion of Internets space as a web log of their life, and such. However, many people do not, and that irritates the SHIT out of me.

In addition, apologies for the not-video post, but I feel that I’m going to go back to doing these, as constantly putting myself on video and thinking of something to say other than “I DUNNO LOL, COLLEGE” is getting irritating and repetitive, and I am beginning to hate YouTube, and I can’t find an alternative that I like. Plus, I mean I’m really in a groove of writing right now. And I just couldn’t make a meaningful video log like this. Plus, editing videos with Windows Movie Maker is a pain in the arse.

So yeah. Thanks for listening. See y’all later.
