A Hand from the Past

We always seem to have those moments when we look back and think that we have accomplished nothing. As if no goals have ever been met. Nothing we intended to write has been written. And absolutely no progression is being made whatsoever other than the prolonging of our existence.  I was having such an episode the last week when I remember that I wrote a book…I wrote this book when I was in much worse shape than I am now, and that book really did the trick!



The book was “How to Survive as a Complete Failure” and it has the log of things I did to get through when I was in the depths of failing. I read it a night ago and wanted to have contempt and say that the advice would not work for me…but I wrote it, and there were examples of when that advice did work for me. Which after I get over my pity party, got excited that I could do things to make my life better and I have proof that it works and that I actually wrote it down!

I am considering putting this on Kindle Self Publish, it is only 27 pages at the moment, but perhaps I will go through it once (correct spelling and grammar and whatnot…), and any new stories or experiences and call it the 2nd edition.

This blog is exactly the same thing. When I see people asking about how to start a blog, or that they want to write but they are not writers, I think of this blog… Which I have neglected at times, but have still written. When looking back on some of the post I reveal in the fact that “this is not the most terrible thing I have read!”

A big thank you for those who have been following this blog, keep a lookout on Kindle store for the “How to Survive as a Complete Failure” book!

What accomplishments from your past give you a boost?


[Note: I am blank on what to blog about, and have so much going on that I will be staying blank for awhile now I’m sure, so here is the first of entries from my old journals!]

In school today I was in the assembly helping people learn the AF high song.  That’s kinda funny being as I refused to sing it at all in earlier assemblies.  Biology was really really really interesting today.  I learned about neuron transmitters and stuff like that.  After school me Guy1, Girl1, and Girl2 were at my house and me and Guy1 took out the benches in the van and went to Sanaquin and took one load over to a storage unit, (Guy2 is moving to PG and going to AF High!).  Girl1 didn’t eat at Guy2’s, she was mad cause the night before I left her house so as not to get in trouble and stayed till 8:00ish at Guy2’s house.  Well after being mad a little bit, Girl1 told me to call her, (she was on ICQ) so I did and she was sorry, and I come up to give her a hug, and she was trying to not let me go and was even hugging me till I got to the little black car.  Now I’m burning CD’s but the dumb thing they got install codes.  I HATE INSTALL CODES
