A Dearth of Awesome

Leave it to Hank Green to make me feel like my Awesome levels are painfully inadequate.

Why don't I do more awesome things for the sake of awesome? It usually turns out awesome. I mean, the last awesome thing I did for the sake of awesome was to write some nonsense mocking the Twilight books. And now people are actually reading it as if it's...something to read. Or something.

I remember when I was in high school, and me and my homies would be hanging out, laughing about things, and we'd come up with all kinds of crazy ideas. And sometimes we wouldn't do them. But sometimes? We would. We wrote shitty comics. We traveled to the Dr. Pepper museum even though it was a few hours away. We created things for the sake of creation.

Why don't we do that anymore? Why don't I do that anymore? There are lots of things I want to do, I think. I make excuses for not doing them (the biggest one usually being my crummy/lack of Internet connection, because what's the point of being awesome if you can't then share it with the Internet??). But I really should stop. I make excuses for everything. Have I started taking life too seriously? Could that be it? Really? I would like to think not.

So I vow to try to do more awesome things in the near future. Because I can.
