Good Influences – My 1-year Anniversary Blog Post

Hiya, it’s mon, ringing in at around 7pm on January 21st… Not sure why that’s notable, but whenever I write little journal entries for myself, that’s usually what I do before I get to what I’m talking about. (Hopefully I can start writing less of this for myself and more of this for the blog.)

But wow, jeez, 2020… The second decade of the new millennia. I didn’t really give that big of a shit when 2010 rolled around, thanks to my tiny babby brain kinda not caring about the fact I was at the beginning of a new thousand year period. But since I’m sort of… Here for it? And the fact I remember and have taken note of pretty much everything that’s happened from 2010 up until now? It’s kind of a big deal for me.

But enough of me rambling, that’s not what I’m really here to talk about.

I’m here to talk about today, January 22nd. (Two days after capycammy became a thing, hmm…) I don’t think it was ever really properly documented, at least on the site, but one year ago today was the day that the at-the-time trashfire known as mon became part of the bulb. If I’m being honest, I’ve felt like I’ve been under the bulb’s warm glow for way longer now… It’s a little hard to believe I’ve only been part of the group for a year.

What’s more is the fact I’ve noticed that – in the time that I’ve spent here – I’ve really changed. Like… In a good way. I recently revisited some old discord servers I used to be in and absolutely cringed at how I used to act, pre- and early-somnolescent. Looking back, I’m not pleased with how I used to act, eugh…

Anyways, I’d like to thank mariteaux for swooping me right outta goddamn Neocities and allowing me to be part of the group that I feel like I’ve been a part of for more than a few years. (And for letting me back in after something I pulled early on…) The group’s encouraged me to get in touch with my creative side, shaped me into the person I am today, and allowed me to nerd out about crap I couldn’t nerd out about anywhere else.

Speaking of creative and nerdy crap, I’ve got some of that coming up!

  • I’m planning to write one or more blog posts on some old macs I received from Lucanis, some just regular machines I appreciate and some with some interesting content on their disks… And one with some finnicky problems attached to it.
  • What was it, five months ago I made the first rendition of my site? I’m refreshing the design, adding some new things, tidying up the markup and removing things I feel are pointless. Hopefully this’ll be out sometime in February.
  • And finally, you might just see some music come out of me in the coming months… That’s all I’m saying about that.

I’m trying to sort of… Be a better person, do better things, and manage my time well this year, along with showcasing some things I keep to just myself or Somnolescent to the public. So I think starting the year by working on some cool things would be pretty cool.

Anyways, it’s 9:41PM, and I don’t want to screw up my sleep schedule again, so good morning/afternoon/evening, whenever and wherever you’re reading this. I’ll see you when I see you.
