As the time goes on, I find time to do random personal hobbies and interests; this time is rare as it is typically taken by work or Netflix, as I'm sure most of you can sympathize with. This week's free time was spent getting back into some doodling, which led to a fearful foey into trying to format some of those in a mildly witty arena, and though the formatting and style are prone to change (mostly to polish it and make it look nice), here is the first installment of a most likely sporadic but definitely to-return comic strip on Heinz Evolution! I will post the panels in the blog and on their own tab for now, though it might get it's own site in the future. Hope you enjoy!
For those of you relatively new to the blog here, There's Something about Thursdays was a weekly tradition that I had to discontinue due to difficult Thursday scheduling every week. With this week's mission, however, I am bringing them back for this special installment - and I've been saving something just for this.
I know that I'm a day late, but hey, it's my first week here in beautiful Rochester New York! This week has been extremely busy, but I am still here so that you guys can keep up with the times. The University is perfect for what I was after, and I am happy to say that the next for years could be the best yet for Heinz. All procrastination and laziness aside, this year's schedule has many good things in store, including the possibility of adding German to the languages Heinz has available. I have met a few different people so far, and there are many more that I do not know, but what people can have in common is somewhat astounding. A TV show or hobby can break the ice between two people, and an hour's time can make friends of them. An afternoon can see them sharing stories and pains of the past. What I have realized in the last couple of days is that you cannot take those pains into such a new phase of life. They are not only in the past but separated by an expanse of new information and a new you. No matter how hard you hold on to an old break up or scar of similar kind - and we all do, no matter how much we tell ourselves that we really want to let go, you cannot help but be faced with the world that sees that as a long forgotten moment - inconsequential to the present that is so full of rich possibilities. Things can remind us of what came before but it cannot strike again, not in this world that is so different and rife with its own dangers. We cannot survive such pain as is to come if we bear it alongside that that has passed. We feel like both are one in the same, however, when they are not. Every new person holds a whole world, and no matter how similar their story could be to one that you have heard before it is different in just as many ways. A person doesn't ever have faith in relationships, love, or anything of the kind, they have faith in each person that they let into their life. If someone hurts you when you let them get that close, that is something that they alone decided. Broken trust - or broken faith - is something beautiful truly lost, but it is broken only for that person. Sometimes the only way to love again is to find the one you can trust in and believe in when you feel like you can't anymore.
As a quick foreward, the picture I have in my mind as I write these posts is a dark expanse, where I throw ideas and hope that they find somewhere to be heard. Again I ask you to comment if you can, so that I can see your face in that darkness. Plus, I'm not going to stop mentioning it until you do, so there. Hop to it. On to the good stuff!
After a hop across the pond, some scary driving, and a hundred failed chess matches, I am finally on my way home. To one home, at least.
Week number three! Exciting! Do you believe me now? Looks like we’ll be here on Thursdays now. Tell your friends, tell your family; tell every single person you know!
This week’s TSaT will be somewhat short and late (I’m not sure whether I will be losing a day or not), as I am writing it in the air above the American south, headed to Atlanta, Georgia before flying to a wondrous land: Ireland. This does not mean, however, that I will be breaking off or limiting my posts, however; I will be writing a full post out of the Land of Ire and Song. I wouldn’t forget you guys, those of you actually out there. For today, however, I wanted to talk fairly quickly about Twitch.
Hey! Hello there! Here we are again, on Thursday, just like I promised. (Well, technically Friday morning, but let's just call it a late Thursday night.) "Ooh, it looks like this is a weekly thing! Or at least he said it would be; it will take more than just two weeks to get me to believe that this is going to be a thing. After all, you can't just say it will be and have people accept it right away." Well, one step at a time, as they say. This week I want to talk about minds.
There's a bit of a tradition about to start here on Heinz Evolution, or as I have just now decided to call it, Evolve, so let's get the first things first. There's something about Thursdays, and that thing on Evolve will be a post about any random subject. Updates will be done separately, and these posts will be completely self-contained and unique. Plus, they will be consistent because I actually said that they would be. Don't want to make a liar out of me, do we. And, in keeping with starting a new adventure, I had a fitting topic in mind. Come along, will you?
