Too much to do.

I figured out a while ago that I just can't read all that people post anymore. I did manage to read every single entry that showed up on my friends list for over 6 months. I'm glad I did because I learned so much about how people think, and how the world really works. Most of the people who read my journal would be amazed at how socially inept I was just a few years ago. I put a lot of thought, and effort into figuring out how to relate to other people. Although I have largely returned to my introverted ways, when I do crawl out of my shell for a little while the experiences I have are much more fulfilling. I also learned a lot about myself through the process of writing. I didn't used to think my writing was valuable at all. Writing was something I thought of as painful. Something I never wanted to do, but now I find myself wanting to write about stuff to anyone who will read it. Even if no one will read it.

I have started the process of moving to the next stage of my development as a person. As a child much of my play I called experimenting. My hero was MacGyver. I think it will be a long time before I am ready to do any useful scientific research. Thus I have decided to focus on the inventor side of my personality. I know I could never be truly happy with a normal career. My creativity is far too random for any job description I have ever seen. I decided I need to market an innovative product as soon as possible so that I can say I am a professional inventor. Even if I am not making enough money to live off of just knowing that I am following my heart will make me feel a lot better. I don't expect to have anything ready for public viewing for quite a while still. Right now I am trying to learn what I need to know.

I fixed my bike up enough to ride it. I might even have enough motivation this year to get back in shape. That would certainly be a step in the right direction.
