It’s been forever it seems like.. is this thing on? Remember when blogging was the thing to do. You’d pour out everything and hope a random person would read it… and then relate… and then some how you would chat with that person on AIM or ICQ and become best online friends. You’d sit at a computer for hours chatting with this person you never knew, but sorta knew… and it was all because you had the guts to be open, and honest. The thing is regardless if it’s online or in person I have found most people just want that ability to connect and to be heard.
What’s funny is that regardless of the jobs I have had and I have had a lot, most of them teach that people just want to be listened to. You want to know what makes a good boss? One that will listen to their employees and feel like their input is being valued. Want to know what makes good customer service? Knowing the customers’ voices are being heard, and being understood. Same with teaching, same with coaching, same with relationships.
So why is it so hard?
Anyways I was just thinking about that for some reason. I got Abandon Kansas playing in the background and the lyric
“Livin’ the dream ain’t so dreamy, darlin’.” was stuck in my head.
I can relate. I heard what Jeremy is saying or at least what I thought. Pursuing what you think your supposed to be doing is hard. Especially when it doesn’t pay off like you think it should. Especially when your expectations are not met, like how you think they should. Then the dream isn’t really dreamy is it?
So what do you do? Persevere, keep moving, or pursue something else?
I am sure THAT thought has ran through everyone’s mind. At what point should you just switch to something else?
Anyway, maybe I should do this more often I haven’t blogged/updated about music in awhile and honestly when you do Social Media stuff for a living it doesn’t leave the desire to want to do it personally. Truthfully I got that lyric I mentioned earlier stuck in my head and figured I would update the blog while Mountain Lion installs on my laptop. So you see… this is just a way to kill time, but I enjoy it. I tell myself I need to do this more often, and maybe I will.
On a different note, since it’s been all over the news. What the HELL was going through James Holmes’ mind when he shot up that theater. Dude what a waste.. I feel sad for him, his family, the victims family.. evil won, but there is still hope. There is still hope for him, for his family, for the victims. It just sucks that there is that sort of evil in the world, that people take it upon themselves to end someone’s life.
What is nuts is that those people had NO IDEA what-so-ever that their time was going to end… That a guy was going to walk into the theater, shoot it up, and then walk out. Insane.
Oh look Mountain Lion is done and so am I.
