Neat Thoughts

How do you see a glass of water filled only to its midpoint? Half-full or half-empty? Are you an optimistic or a pessimistic person? Your attitudes about just anything will certainly determine if you go about life happy or just ungrateful.

I am thankful for…

…the mess to clean up after a party because it means I have been surrounded by friends,
…the taxes I pay because it means that I have income,
…the clothes that fit a little too snug because it means I have enough to eat,
…my shadow who watches me work because it means I am out in the sunshine,
…the spot I find at the far end of the parking lot because it means I am capable of walking,
…all the complaining I hear about our government because it means we have freedom of speech,
…that lady behind me at work who complains constantly because it means that I can hear,
…the piles of laundry and ironing because it means my loved ones are nearby,
…the lawn that needs mowing, windows that need cleaning and gutters that need fixing because it means I have a home,
…my huge heating bill because it means that I am warm,
…weariness and aching muscles at the end of the day because it means that I have been productive,
…and the alarm that goes off in the early morning hours because it means that I am alive.

Wanna Play?

I finally finished the “Wanna Play” logo. What do you think? =)

I think I’m just gonna add my random thoughts to this webpage. In life there aren’t a lot of ways in which we can voice our opinions for everybody to hear. The internet is a great way for people to let other people know what they think and feel. I decided to add this because I was thinking how people don’t truly appreciate something until they lose it. We always have something in the palm of our hands, but we take advantage of it instead of treasure it, and finally, it’s gone and we regret. Why not just cherish it and try to keep it there in the first place? I’m sure you all have something like this happen to you. Well, that’s my random thought for today.

I have decided to add some video game related material to this website. As of right now I only want to do stuff related to the Sega Master System, but if I ever completely cover all that I want to cover, I may expand it to Sega Genesis and Super Nintendo. These are some lofty goals, so I will concentrate only on the SMS for now. Look for an update in the coming days.
