You know, the hardest thing I ever have to do is find any sort of motivation to actually stick with and do anything. This website is a prime example of that, I get an idea, stick with it for awhile, get bored with it and start something else. I…bah, can’t be bothered writing this anymore.
For anyone that’s still using IE, well stop. There’s plenty of friendly, better alternatives out there. Personally I use Firefox and I know that this page doesn’t really show up properly in IE.
So do yourself a favour, try Firefox, Safari, Mozilla, or anything else that’s not IE, please!
I’ve got a real problem with concentration. Well, not concentration per se, more like I just can’t do just one thing for too long. I’ve got several ideas for projects, programming I would like to do, things I would like to learn, countries I would like to invade, typical stuff really. The problem is I just can’t get any of them done.
I’m sure this is a common thing, the problem is I just dunno how to overcome it. I need to pick my motivation and stick with it, but it’s just proving difficult. In the programming stakes for instance, I’m not sure if I want to fiddle with some QNX development, Windows development, Linux development, or some sort of database. I’ve got an idea for all of them, it’s just that I can’t pick one.
Same goes for other things, I want to learn the piano, draw, and I want to start a business. The problem is I just can’t seem to concentrate one one, so I never get any of them started. Ah well, I guess I’ll figure something out eventually. Maybe, I suppose.
What? A serious title, and not one of my crazy, wacky puns? I’m afraid so. I’m going to be serious for a moment. A question that I posted on The Scene forums has had a response that has surprised me.
The thread in question can be found over here. Ack, don’t go there yet, I haven’t finished. Basically it’s a thread of morally dubious questions, whatever that’s supposed to mean exactly I’m not sure. To be honest, it’s really not that interesting, just the usual “Would you kill a stranger to save a family member”, “Would you cheat on your girlfriend/boyfriend for a million dollars” kind of stuff.
So I decided to post the hardest question of that type I could think of:
Would you rather see your mother burning to death, or your father?
Now I consider that to be a very tough question, and it’s a decision that most people would not tell anybody else. However, I think that it’s a question you should know the answer, if only to know more about yourself (see! I get to the meaning of the title at last!).
So far, I’ve got one reply. And even that answer was trying to dodge the question. Fair enough you don’t want to tell me the answer, but at least say that instead of avoiding the actual question altogether.
But! And now I’m finally getting to the real point here. I think the responses (well lack of) are due to the fact that most people don’t know the answer. Maybe I’ve got it wrong, but it would seem that’s the issue. Am I off base here? Is anyone ever going to read this post anyway?
Well if someone does read this and has something to say about it, tell me what you think.
Phew! I’ve managed to get the majority of the old site across to the new one, except for the pictures and files. It’ll do for now, just have to do a bit of tidying up, etc, but for now it’s workable.
Only took 3 hours too.
I’m seriously thinking about getting a proper site set up. By proper site, I mean one with the proper domain name and everything. I’ve looked into it, and it seems very cheap to do indeed.
I’ll also be switching to WordPress. I’ve never used it before, but setting up the website is so cheap that I might as well risk it.
