The Little Things #1

Today I was having trouble with the blogging process.  Let's call it writer's block.  I don't know what it was, but I was feeling completely uninspired.  The process just never got started.  Maybe the fact was that I am always getting distracted.  Then it hit me!  These distractions aren't always a bad thing, they are usually some of my favorite things.  That's when I got the idea for a new potential series.  I'm going to start taking some time, here and there, to begin writing about all the little things in life that make me (and you) happy.  The things that can instantly brighten your day and lift your spirits.  The things that make you feel like everything is going to be ok. 

I have an idea here and i'm going to run with it, but I need help.  I want some feedback from this.  I'm not even just talking a little comment here and there.  I am interested in possible guest bloggers and other ways for everyone to get involved.  If you would be interested in taking any of this on please let me know.  Check out my contact page (top right hand corner) to get with me about any interest.

So, without further wait here is little thing #1 from me:

One word: Shuffle!  Shuffling through my itunes library is one of my most favorite things ever.  It's something that's good for any occasion.  From road trips, to parties, to nights at home with nothing else to do, shuffle always keeps it interesting.  I spend a lot of time driving just skipping from song to song.  On occasion something special happens though.  Sometimes shuffle picks out just the right songs.  Being able to listen straight through without skipping a song is so rare it can be compared to seeing a unicorn, but those occasions are amazing.  There is just something about really good music that makes me happy.  Music is one of those things that makes me tick.  I always find myself setting events in my day to day life to music.  It's kind of like having theme music everywhere I go.  I'm actually shuffling as i'm writing this.  FYI listening to music through bose headphones is like filling your head with awesome!  The song playing right now is "Rise To Me" by The Decemberists.  I recommend listening to it now.  

Somehow I always end up of the main topic.  My mind is always all over the place.  Anyway i'm going to ask one more time.  Help me out!  Let me know what makes you tick!  Let me know about the little things that make you happy!  This could be a lot of fun.

Until Next Time,

What do you think about shuffling?

Mr. Introspective Retrospect,

Since you are such an avid blogger, I will share as much genius as possible.

In high-school football, my coach always said, "Matt, it's the small things that matter."

For me, little things like the love of a good woman, beer, and company of great friends are important. So, yes that sounds like a Country song, but really think... How difficult is it to find a good woman these days? When you dig through the crazies, the slackers, and the promiscuous ones, there may be a decent one out there. There are many topics that one could delve in this relation. Best date places, What does a date consist of these days? Dedicate a blog to "Domi?"
How to make it in a modern relationship?

Beer. Beer is the key to survival of life. There are many topics that one could explore with beer. The difference in a porter and a stout. How microbreweries save humanity from the monotonous use of bud and coors "light" beers... There are infinite ideas from such a beer aficionado as yourself.

Great friends, another of the little things I appreciate in my life. Usually, I try to be a good friend, but what is considered a "good" friend these days? I've had so called "friends" that I hear from once a year... and then friends I talk to once a week, once a month... Anyhow, spending times with friends, sharing business info, beer info, cigar info, talking crazy stories, and making crazy stories.. That's what it's all about... Living life, and living it well.

Some little things, make a difference in life.
-Going out an hear that old rat rod crank after not touching it for months, or after making some adjustments.
-Waking up without a headache, after a night of making stories with friends.
-Living on the coast!
-Of course, popping on the pandora.

I'll share my Master plan of blogging with you, pick a category per day... like weds beer day...tuesday fishing story day...sports sundays...

It'd be pretty awesome to read about a day in the life of a medical professional... There has to be tons of material there...zombie viruses...women who made bad choices...drunk and disorderly... severed appendages...
