mr me @ 11:39 am

I keep feeling frustrated with talking about myself
who the fuck cares?
me me me

apparently my iPhone agrees with me
I've used a iPhone for nearly three years and have never noticed this until the last few months:
Mist of the time I type "me" the iPhone auto-corrects it to "mr"

which is one of the factors that lead me to talking about other people (or trying to... pretending too)

how long has it been doing that and I didn't notice?
mostly the autocorrect is good
but the mr/me shit is driving mr fucking nuts


I understand there is value in my conceited ramblings
that, though expressed through myself
I may be writing some things that resonate universally
but it's obviously time to come from another angle

"I gotta learn!"

For what it's worth--I take the view that your Journal is primarily for yourself. So no need to apologize for writing out thoughts and meditations that relate specifically to your own journey. I sometimes connect to what you write, and sometimes don't. Sometimes I connect but don't comment. Sometimes I comment just because I think you look pretty or I am impressed by some stray remark you included.

That thing with the iPhone would have me getting out the sledgehammer.

I've always thought one's journal should be "I, I, I; me, me, me". Journals are about sharing one's thoughts and feelings, so I'm not sure how you could change the focus.

Sometimes it's easier to project your own experiences onto someone else. Or the illusion of someone else.

Seriously? Although everybody's blog is obviously about them, I feel the most important thing a blogger can do is not to write in his own journal, but to share with his friends by writing something in their journal.

The Predictive Spelling thing is uber annoying. WOOF is always WOOD, last week it turned a business I deal with in Hollywood, Coast RECORDING equipment supply into Coast RECOVERING equipment supply. Silly, does this all the time. Like the Apple "Wheel"
