I grew up with 8-bit Nintendo. We just called "Nintendo". When Super Nintendo came out, good ole 8-bit went from Nintendo to regular Nintendo. That's what superlatives do. They take something that was once good, and make it no longer good enough. This is a topic I want to explore at some point, but not today.
Today is about a button on my first video game system that put a new word in my vocabulary. Today is about a button with little benefit, but a word with great value.
Today, I'm hitting Reset. Here's why:
- I've missed some posts. Not a huge deal, but if I was loving this as much as I had hoped to, I wouldn't have missed them.
- I am having a hard time writing about things in my life, because I'm worried about offending people that read this blog.
- I am having a hard time writing about things in my life because so much of my life is spent at my job, and I don't want anything I say about my job to be misinterpreted by any coworkers that stumble upon this site.
- Through writing in this blog, I have discovered a lot about myself that I'm not satisfied with. I need time to sort those things out.
I still don't know why hitting reset was better than turning the power off and then back on. Something about data saving, I don't know. I want my readers to know that I'm not sad, and I'm not depressed. I'm just tired. Having faced instances of my own hypocrisy, having faced instances of self-doubt, and having faced instances where the gleam of give-a-shit was not found in mine eye, I decided that this project has to be what gives. Not forever. Just until February.
Until Next, Reader.
