Note to Self

October 26, 2006

Dear Self,

Stop publishing posts after two in the morning when your eyes are so bleary you’re not entirely sure what you’ve typed is in English. If you feel it is so profound you still want to share it with others, save it and read it in the morning when you’re thinking straight again.

And don’t ever write something merely for the sake of posting something new. Or simply because the house is all asleep and you’ve been tossing and turning for the last two hours and it makes a good distraction. You’ll regret it in the morning (even if you are lucky enough to un-publish it before anybody you know saw it).

Oh, yeah, and don’t ever conclude a post with, “I don’t know exactly what I’m trying to say, so I’ll just conclude with this for now and figure it out later.” You won’t figure it out later, and you’ll hate that you exposed your pathetic failures at conclusions to the world.

Thank you.
