I'm your average college bum. I work nights at a gas station to pay the bills and study IT during the day. I used to have a lot of faith in humanity, but I'm over that now. I doodle every now and then. I used to be okay at it but I haven't touched a pen in a while. I guess that's life.

I'd like to draw again, so I'm back to my deviant ways...
Interests
So back in the good ol' days before we knew the NSA listened in on our bathroom time I used to make websites. Oh man, my friend Samir and I made tons of these things. Revisions after revisions. It was great. Every now and then since those years I break open a new notepad and start hammering out a completely new website, obsess over it for like.. 3 weeks? Then either forget to keep up or I just quit and move on to more important things, like paying my bills and keeping food in my mouth "priorities." Today I did it again. Well, not like... terribly bad. I started writing some javascript in a BRAND NEW FOLDER titled aptly 'programs.' Anyhow, I cut that shit out about an hour after I started and deleted everything. evidence of obsession. 

It caused me to think about what my intentions are with this old habit. I seem to revisit those days a lot. I remember the fun of making a website, and then slowly relive the meaninglessness of actually running a website nobody visits. I suppose the real treasure is making the damn thing, because each one was always a work of art. Albeit some works were much less "art" than others. But given what can be done if enough obsession is expended, looking back I am amazed at the things I have worked on and simply forgotten. For me it is similar to the experience one might have revisiting ancient ruins. Like... Yeah we could create way better shit now then they ever did... but just the attention to detail, the motivation behind the ruin structure, it's amazing and yet not worth revisiting for repairs. Nobody looks at the pyramids and says "We should plaster that shit back up and make it look great!" We let our ruins sit, rotting away for future revisits.
