Oportunity Lost

All the things I should have done
Come rushing through my brain too late
A freezing of my social skills
Something I have come to hate

Why must I fail every time
To say the line and woo the girl
Instead I speak my awkward words
That never click, not for all the world

What’s different is how we’re the same
I see what frustrates me in you
But as I think on it tonight
I realize I’m like that too

[Why can’t we just get along
It’s like our chance for “friends” is gone
So I go compose a poem
And you go home]

An Update

Here’s what’s happened recently:

  • My laptop broke (the biggest reason I’ve been writing here less). I had a bad stick of RAM which, I think, corrupted a system file. I replaced the RAM, but it still won’t boot without a BSOD, so I need to grab my files and reformat. Maybe I’ll try Ubuntu again.
  • I have been keeping up with my reading resolution, just haven’t been posting the reviews. Cut me some slack, I haven’t had a working laptop!
  • A friend just told me “I love your women stories”. I’m not sure what she meant, or if that’s a good thing, but I do have a lot of them. And I got a few more this weekend.
  • Sid (a roommate) and Lacy got married on Saturday! Congrats you two! I’ll certainly miss Sid’s constant antics and Lacy’s frequent visits (she just lived a few houses down). Hopefully we still see each other often!
  • Tristan (another roommate) and I walked down I-35 on Sunday while traffic was stopped because of an accident ahead. It was quite the experience.
  • Slowly but surely, I’m starting to teach more in small group. Dieudonne is leaving in August, and our small group will continue. I’m learning how to lead better, with a lot of grace from the folks in our group.
  • I’ve started a healthy questioning of  my engineering career. In a bid to avoid being limited by my expectations, I’m starting to explore what music production would entail.
  • My (final) roommate Brian buzzed my head a few weeks ago. Don’t worry, I asked him to 🙂
  • The Trinona is coming in less than two weeks! Let’s just say that my training regime hasn’t looked too different from last year.
  • After asking how to cancel my Comcast account, they gave me faster service for $4/month less than what I was paying with my old promotion. But it’s $30/month less than what they wanted to charge me. Internet pricing is such a scam.
  • I’m trying to convince Travis to move in with us. Sid being moved out, Tristan out traveling for work, and Brian having an opposite schedule really makes for a lonely house sometimes.
  • Yardwork is ever looming…

So there you have it, the happening world of Scott.
