New Ideas

So I’ve started getting quite a few friends on Facebook, and I mean that’s all going really well and all but I think I need to branch out a bit and find a way for us to all hang out a bit more online.
That’s the problem with having so many friends online – day to day I feel so desperately lonely. I feel like I don’t have anyone to talk to. I don’t have anyone I can trust.
Then it hits 10pm and there they are, USA, Canada, England, Scotland, and Wales – they are all there. These new friends bring a culture to our conversations that I find fucking awesome. But by 2am I am too tired and I’m off to bed.
Only to wake to a new day, a new day of nothing…

An online friend invited me to play Poker at 2am tomorrow morning, so I am going to learn how to play, maybe this will even be something that I am good at! Hopefully the stimulation this game provides is enough to keep me awake.

I got some sweet poker tips online, the help my ‘game.’

Now, I’m going to try my hand at this whole online poker thing. I am sure I will cane it, I am very strategic after all!

Now There’s A Thought…

I don’t really know when it happened, and I am screwed if I can tell anyone why, but somewhere along the lines, I seem to have lost myself. I need to meet new people, I need to find new ways to get myself out there.

So I am online, as ever, and I come across the ever cliched ‘Speed Dating.’ Now, I know how this may sound, a young guy, massive creep, heading on out to find a desperately lovely woman in which that can both bask in a simple routine, in a simple life. (In reality, that actually doesn’t sound too bad.)
But that’s not what this is about. I just want to meet new people, preferable a lady :), and I want to meet people, that they themselves, are looking to make new friends.
That’s all I’m after. Friendship.

So Speed Dating – it’s a lot more romantic than it sounds, but there are a LOT of rules. A relatively new concept, it actually originated in 1998 at a Beverly Hills cafe, and since then I guess, it has really taken off. There is Online Speed Dating, Cafe’s, Nightclubs, International, Chat, Dinner and even Speed Dating Balls. Crazy.

So I guess it is now up to me to find a local event that is airing this kinda thing, and just, go.
That’s it. Just get on out there.

The WordPress ‘Blog.’

So here I am, newly introduced to this blogosphere that has set the world by storm. I guess it’s just a bit easier to begin by introducing myself a little bit.
My name is Simon Brown, I am a 21 year old student living here in Melbourne. I currently live in Carlton, in a sharehouse. Share, however is a bit of an overstatement. Where I live we don’t share anything, food, bills, conversations, glances – if I saw one of my housemates walking down the street, I honestly couldn’t tell you.

From what I gather, there is three of them, only for the sheer fact that the rent is split four ways. That’s about as far as my knowledge of them goes.

Anyway, I was just online talking to a few people in a forum, about ways to make friends and meet new people and they suggested I start a blog. From what I gather – a blog ;

usually maintained by an individual with regular entries of commentary, descriptions of events,

is kinda like an online diary. Seems a pretty girly thing to start up really, so I checked out a few more blogs, and decided that they actually have the potential to be awesome.

Man Blog
Wrestling
Zombies

Examples of what’s to come, I think.
