Sometimes, I forget it's 2014 even though I write it down every time I post a new Event Log. The beginning of the year always seems to have that effect on people. I still remember, as a kid, thinking to myself, "Man, I can't believe it's the year 2000." That was 14 years ago. Time sure does fly.
I do think kids have it easier these days. It almost takes no effort to leave a digital trace with Facebook and social networking. I would've killed to see what I thought ten years ago. I would be fourteen then, and the only thing I remember was watching Neon Genesis Evangelion. It was freshman year and I'm sure there were all sorts of funny moments that are forever lost because my memory ain't what it used to be. One of the perks of getting older is laughing at your dumbass younger self.
I've been making really slow progress through the last chapter of Hotel Hearts. I'm basically working on it one scene at a time, and there quite a few scenes. I've pumped up the word count to around 8k, so it's getting there.
I've also found a solution for my persistent tinnitus, and that's to listen to music really loudly. I figure if I'm gonna have to live the rest of my life with an annoyinglow pitch, there's not much more damage I can do to my ear drums. Turn that shit up to 11.
I closed out the day by watching a bunch of NBA2K My Career videos. It's pretty interesting to see how other people play. I jumped in and barely won against the Magic. It's pretty dumb since I blew out the Heat by 30 points last game, but here, I had to fight tooth and nail for the victory. I can never get the game winning shot, but I always get the game winning assist. At least I got my triple-dub.
It's always nice when I find a new song to listen to. I've been listening to The Mother We Share on repeat for the entire day. Wanna take bets on how long it'll take before I get bored of it?
