with the last week of classes just around the corner, I definitely haven’t been giving this wonderful blog the attention it deserves. I thought you deserve to know something about me. My favorite word starting with the letter “m” is “multitudinous”. I’ll have several updates once I’m through exams, and probably some links to my projects! Hang in there!
One small step for mankind, one giant, hurtling leap into the abyss for Corey. Trying to be a humour writer these days is a lot about marketing yourself, especially your online presence. You need to be funny and creative, and do it consistently where it will be seen by countless people. I feel I’ve prepared enough yo enact my new years resolution though: one funny tweet a day. It’s going to be grueling, and I know there will be days where I am simply incapable of 140 humorous characters, but I’m excited to challenge myself in this way, and hopefully get some of my stupid shit heard. Follow me @hotwheeel if you aren’t already. It should be an interesting ride.
You’re about to have the best 2015 anyone’s ever had! So y’know. That’s pretty cool.
You go do that. I’ll just be here. Writing away. Doin’ mah thing.
I kind of suck at updates to begin with, and the holiday season has somewhat exacerbated the situation. Things are busy! Being surrounded by friends and family has the benefit of distracting me from the slow, inevitable heat death of the universe. Plus I went to a hockey game, so that’s neat! It’s tough to be an Oilers fan living in Victoria, but seeing the Oil lay a beat down on the L.A. Kings live makes it all worthwhile…. so, whoever you are, and wherever you are, I hope you’re surrounded by the people and projects that fill you with passion. Happy Holidays 🙂
My next exam is in the last possible time slot for exams, 2:00 on the 22nd. It’s unfortunate that I’ll be traveling home so close to Christmas, but hey- at least I’ve got 6 days to do pretty much nothing. That’s pretty neat-o, I guess.
Hey, so here’s a thing I did. After hours of banging my head over simple errors, my website has finally been uploaded. The Small World Project was designed to bring the global community a little closer together- and to get me a half decent mark. Still, it’s kind of neat, and my first real foray into web design. Would highly recommend the squarespace platform to those looking to create their own sites.
In conclusion, check out the site, and send in a submission! That would be neat. No pressure or anything though, alright? I know you got a lot of stuff going on.
I’ve got a cool little project that I’m finally close enough to unveiling to the world! Details as they come, but in the meantime, I have a newfound respect for web designers and they way they wield CSS like an obscure and forgotten tongue, full of arcane power and untold secrets. Man, fuck those guys.
I suppose there has been one interesting development as of late. An opinion piece of mine was recently picked up by the Times Colonist, which is neat because of reasons and stuff. It’s something of a controversial topic, and not something I would normally write about on my blog, but it’s important, and if you’re intrigued on my opinion on e-cigarette legislation, you can read about here: http://tinyurl.com/nx82sva. For the record, I endorse harm reduction strategies as opposed to ineffective prohibition laws. Here, let me link that for you again, just in case you missed it the first time: http://tinyurl.com/nx82sva. So, basically, I had a pretty good week!
I haven’t really been posting anything lately. And that’s shitty of me! I’ve been busy with exams and junk but that’s no excuse. So here’s some content. Content, content, content. It gets better I swear.
Well, the cats out of the bag now. There is an actual, factual, online portal dedicated to one of the most intelligent, thought-provoking and generally excellent people I know- me. As a patron of my wonderful world of web-based whimsy, you’ll be subject to some of the most quality humour writing on the net.
