To Do list

I keep getting these ideas for this site that erupt into my mind like minor geysers. Some of them are the usual dumb ideas that one gets for their site, and then discards with the realization of just how dumb or silly or asinine it will seem. These dumb ideas are usually followed by a prolonged and somewhat depressing evaluation of just why I keep updating this site in the first place.

Luckily, these moments of self-doubt and self-flagellation usually only last long enough for me to remind myself, “It’s your site, stupid. If you want to post ridiculous and asinine stuff to your site, who cares?”

It helps that I get extremely kind and supportive email from people saying that they a) enjoy the site, and b) actually come to the site in the first place. I’m a sucker for platitudes and the kindness of strangers.

Sometimes, however, I get good ideas. The problem is that work seems to get into everything, like cat hair or bad MOR background music. And some of these ideas require time. I’m sick of posting these rather lame and low-effort posts to just make sure that the homepage actually has content. This post is almost one of those, but not quite, because I actually want to get this out of my head, if only to make me feel like I’m actually doing something about it.

The good news is that I’ve got a bit of a respite from work over the next three weeks, as one group of my students are away on work experience. So that means I’m going to be making up for lost time. I don’t want to forget some of these ideas I’ve had, so here’s a memo to me:

1. Eatons
2. Hidden City
3. Vancouver tears
4. Circus Circus
5. 21 Jump Street
6. 10 year itch
7. Path Finder / Change Desktop

If I get to even two or three of these before my students come back from work experience, it will be a bloody miracle.
