Blog # 3

Yo all.

David here with yet another chapter of The Silent Blog.

Another day has passed in dis-communication, save for my exception places, of course. It really is starting to irritate me. Lots of people who don't seem to understand or ridicule it. Of course these people are also the people I know best. Some., however, are very cool about it. Still, it's aggrivating to not be able to get one's point across without minutes of writing on little note pads. There's gotta be an easier way. I wish I could just talk into peoples' heads.

Had a bit of a fight with my roommate last night after he was being rude and demanding just because he knew I couldn't reply back verbally. Nearly strangled him. However, after slamming angry things on my keyboard for a while he read them and we cleared things up.

This morning I went to the park at about 7 am after a whole night of stayuing up and hanging with my friends and played a bit of guitar. BTW, When I say playing, I mean making cool beats by pressing my fingers against the neck and enjoying the sounds. I can't actually Play guitar. Also, I checked out a couple books from the library to learn Swedish and, in a couple days, will be getting other books to learn Finnish as well. I figure, so long as all I can do is listen I may as well try to learn another language while I'm at it. More listening pleasure ^^

Ugh... it IS really annoying though.

BTW, Last night I DID say a grand total of eleven words outside my safety zones. Which is sad, but, seeing as I was only a day into the vow I reckoned I would just extend it a day and basically start over. The first day, btw, I said “sorry” to someone because I turned around and elbowed the poor woman in the face. You can't really get through that silently. The trick, I suppose, is to not let your mind wander too much. I'm so used to speaking whatever I think that I can't really censor it. Last night I was toying with the guitar and looked at my friend on my computer and there it wenty. I gotta say, I felt REALLY down for the whole night. Very disappointed in myself.

Still, I have faith that I can extend it a day and start over ^^

  1. I'm learning to play guitar... or at least trying too. I'm picking it up pretty quickly. It's really not that difficult just takes a little finger coordination. I checked out some books from the library and found some good ones.

    But yeah, that's too bad you had to start over. It's cool though that you are doing so well. I may be really quiet but I love talking when I have someone who will actually listen...

    Then again when I went to the renaissance faire last year I didn't talk because I was pretending to be a fairie. Now that I think about it that was really quite difficult. I guess I like talking too much.

  2. David, I know it's frustrating, but I'm very proud that the reason you broke your silence was to be compassionate to another person. I think it's a very worthy thing to speak for.
    I am very proud of you for sticking with something you believe in.
    I love you,
