Day 1126

I do not have time to write a lot of stuff, but I did think of another way to help for defining yourself. I was messing with the Google Ad stuff and realized that the way advertising can figure out interests could also be used to help figure out about someone in general.

Anyway, that is all. Good night.

Day 1125

I still really miss Shadow. I am really glad I get a chance to do an art project about him, though it is not exactly how I wanted it to go.

I have a busy day tomorrow. I dont really know what to say. I am glad I got a good post in yesterday, but I do not really have one today.

I learned more about Shadows death

My grandmother saw the vet today. Shadow had some type of cancer starting that caused the bleeding into his stomach. Apparently it was not painful, which I am happy about. Despite the time some things about Shadow are still making me cry. Shadow was a very special dog. We have had this same vet for various pets at least since I was really young, and she has been a vet for years before that. Apparently she and her vet techs had a really hard time with Shadows death too

Day 1124

In my art class we went around looking at everyone’s things about themselves and tried to answer what we could figure out about them. We were told to use text only.

I got some interesting responses. Someone thought I was atheist because I play minecraft and you are basically a god in that game or something odd like that. While I think that was my favorite answer, it was very incorrect for a few reasons.

My favorite accurate answer was that there is a lot going on all the time in my mind. That is very accurate and probably part of why I always have a tough time defining myself.

I thought a bit about defining self a little while ago. It was complicated and basically resulted in there are many ways to define yourself, by actions, thought, plans, what you enjoy, how you act, beliefs, diseases, etc, but no one thing defines you. It is the combination.

So yeah, I am not much farther than I was before.

I also thought about why it is important to define self, but I have not made much progress on that. I might discuss it in a later post.

About me. 
The exercise we were given in my current art class on the first day. I made this about me. Now, what can you tell about me from this work?

The internet has been difficult all day. So this probably wont be my daily reflection, but a note as to what I will be doing. I have homework I have continued to procrastinate on, despite attempting to work on several times. The plan will now be to go take a shower and then come back and do today’s reflection, or just meditate for a while. The point is to get my mind off of the stuff I need to do because if I am constantly thinking about it I become more stressed and then struggle to do that. I am trying to keep myself from getting to that point. Currently I think the reflection will be one I have been meaning to do for a while, defining myself and the difficulty I have had.

So I hope this all goes well.
