(2003 to 2005)

I've been sitting in my chair, at my computer all day, just thinking.

It's been nice to have the 'day off'.

I have to go to a party tonight, and I have so much to do, that I wasn't able to commit to starting on it today, just to be interrupted this evening. Lame, perhaps, but true.

This might be a terrible thing to say, but I hate socialising. In fact, I hate leaving my house.

Having something on my 'social calendar' really bothers me. I hate feeling committed to go and engage in useless activities that involve me inducing substances that inhibit cognitive function and that cause me to part with resources that could otherwise be put to better use. That is, I don't like wasting my time and money getting pissed when I could just stay at home and program, read or communicate via persistent mediums instead.

I resolved earlier this week to say 'No' to more invitations to parties, etc. Since I made that resolution, I accepted an invitation out on Friday, and then on Saturday.

I feel like I have to attend, for the sake of being able to maintain relationships.

It's a shame that we can't all just maintain our relationships via e-mail. (or better yet, via web-logs! ;)
