Mostly thoughts from a time before I began to change myself.
But I'm changing that.

a health and supplements type of post

So through browsing, I found out about this biologist dude (or chick. who knows. I'll say he's a guy for ease of my pronouns) who posts on Silk Road 2, giving people health advice.

He seems legit to me, in terms of the sheer amount of knowledge he has and shares.

There's a 24 page thread that I saved, and I pasted the segment about supplements into a google doc (and moved the summary from the bottom to the top).
This was his response to someone asking "what kind of supplements should everyone take?"

In terms of diet, he recommends a fruit and mushroom based diet, which is similar to what I'd read and wanted to follow in Joel Fuhrman, M.D.'s book Eat to Live.
I wussed out, but I'm on track for eating a healthier diet for now.

I got one of those green-type supplements
(the powder things that are basically just powdered vegetables and berries and stuff)
to use as a crutch until I know a little better what foods to buy, how to prepare them, etc.

I think I'm already feeling better, more clear-headed and such.
Now I just have to start exercising more!

I'll try to make Saturday my internet-social day, or in any case, will be sure to get to this type of thing once a month at least.
I mostly forget about it/only remember at inopportune times.

But soon

Of course I always thought "a blog should be interesting" and like the idea of saying little, but always being profound over speaking constantly and drowning out those "best" thoughts.

I don't know if I ever saw this as something for me.
I wanted it to serve a purpose of entertainment, either through amusement or interesting things, rather than just be a diary.
So I put off posting, maybe a little daunted.
I think I'll go for weekly puns or jokes I encounter/come up with,
though I'll try for creating daily anyway.

If I look at my old posts on here even, some things seem ignorant, solipsistic (though that's kind of what blogs are for), etc.
I see myself differently than I did then, but I'd like to avoid looking back on current or future posts and thinking the same.

I suppose it's a matter of being better informed.
The writing style should always look worse in retrospect.

I'll try for long-winded being my only big flaw in writing from now.
At least I'll continue to write something like David Foster Wallace that way.

Similar to most people, I often want to do more than I do.
On my part, I'm just lazy.
I could phrase it in a way that puts less blame on me, but I'd rather not.
I don't want to make promises I might not keep, because I've already broken many by putting them off.
So I'll refrain from saying what I'd like or like to do unless I'm sure I will not do/show it,
and I won't say anything until I've been doing it for awhile.

But soon.
