I want to make this serious. Which will require an utter reworking of the website to make it good… and then I want to add google adsense to the site and hopefully get some publicity, and then see where it goes. I'd love to generate some content for people because I find my thoughts fairly interesting. Other people seem to agree. I'm not being egotistical. I feel that I have interesting ideas, and I need an outlet to the world so that there is even the possibility of being noticed. Though I suppose I want a comment system so I can get feedback. I'll look into typical blog sites, but I really want to be able to generate advertising revenue so that I feel I'm being productive when it comes to working on this. That'll lead to more content, and if it goes amazingly well, a full time job working for myself. I'll want to add pictures as well, along with video. So, yea, thats the plan. I just graduated college, and i'd love to seriously do this full time if it lends itself to it. I may need a part time job on the side to make ends meet. At the moment, I just returned from an adventure all over the east coast, and I'm kinda dead. I really wish I could adventure endlessly in an Earthroamer, using something like this to afford food as gas as I go… and a tethered cell phone plan to let me actually have internet. That sounds like an ideal life to me right now. Well, plus a girl. I need an adventuring companion. And I may have found one, but for her sake I don't want to publicize our lives that much at the moment. Although the two of us are considering writing a book on relationships. and philosophy. I love both of those, and you can expect that as a theme for this blog. I've never written a book before, but I hope that putting fingers to keyboard (like here) will improve my writing ability until I feel I am capable of that. I don't really wish to talk about all this so directly in the real thing, but I think this is still a precursor kind of blog. I need to find a legit one where things work well and let me advertise and whatnot. I suppose I can use Facebook and twitter and dailybooth to publicize my stuff too. I guess the first goal is to make enough profit that the website can afford to have its own domain name. Then move on to real profits.

"A human being is part of a whole, called by us the 'Universe,' a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separated from the rest--a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circles of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty." - Albert Einstein

This is one of my favorite quotes of all time. I often tell people that there is nothing I enjoy more than exploring a fellow human mind. So if you are ever interested in making a mental connection, I like to get involved in people's lives. Many people think the world revolves around them, and this is not true, but others think the world does not revolve around them, and this is also not true. What I mean is that each and every person exists within their own personal universe where everything is subjective to them. So, the actual world does not revolve around them, but the best method for living this life is to relax into this realization and behave entirely as yourself, because there is no reason to act as if you are being monitored. Most other people are trapped monitoring themselves and thus ignore what you are up to.

I hope I've given you a bit to think about, but I don't want to delve too deep too quickly. Responses are welcome, but should be sent to my Facebook for now.

Havent changed this in forever! I'm in my programming class so I felt like changing some code here. I don't really know how to advance this page. We are just learning what a localhost is... so I'm bored. I've known that for a while.

Ah! I broke the twitter feed. dont know whats wrong...
edit: I think it actually works, but twitter is being stupid. And i'm not exactly sure how to add a error message to their javascript... so i'm gonna wait and see what happens. I'll kill the feed if it's not back tomorrow.
edit 2: And its back. I think it stopped because i was fiddling with my profile settings, and their is some lag time in making your profile public. I'm kinda intrigued to see what this will show when twitter is down though.

Twitter support is go! currently showing my 3 latest tweets. continuing to play with it. additionally, i'm attempting to figure out how to use javascript to hide stuff so that i can browse the page using tabs. so... pretty much ignore the ghetto tabs at the top and the random non functional comment system. it's just an example i'm using to figure out how to show and hide things. twitter is bad ass though. oh, and I added an archive... kinda. i'm playing with links for things on the same page.

I would just like to say. I am a god! haha, i fixed the borders, and i made the page read different style sheets depending on the width of your device. if the width is less than 480 pixels, it will go iphone style.

I'm going home on Saturday! then the times here will switch to eastern, and i can stop being confused. The WePay mobile app is coming along. it exists, all the basic views are done. now i'm working on enabling basic features. I really want to get the mobile login working so that the page is self sufficient. Currently you need to use the regular page to log in, but once you have the cookie, then you can access your account on the mobile page. Anyway, with regard to this page, I want to develop something that can detect if your using an iphone or not so that it can give you a different page. also, the left and right borders are annoying me. the left one looks bigger than the right. and i'm having trouble fixing it. arg.

2nd update! Massive overhaul. Just deleted my other pages so it is just this one. the others were kinda useless so i moved their data here. The main reason for the change is because i am optimizing this for the iPhone. i wanted it you be able to display in full screen web app mode. which is totally bad ass. now i need to teach myself ajax to add other pages. side note. i won 50 bucks last night playing poker.

Time for the ghetto blog! i'm gonna write short entries here that are simply written into the source code. This website is just something for me to fiddle with. heh. Completely unrelated... i'm super excited for the iPhone 3GS. I really want the tomtom car kit as well. oh, and i just got my CPR/First Aid certification yesterday. peace all.
