  • Coping With Everyday Bullshit.
    • But I’m not qualified to write that yet, because I haven’t exactly figured that shit out myself. Suppose that’s written. What do I really want to write?
  • Pursuing New Friendships In Adulthood
    • (?). Not even sure if I’d really do that one. Suppose that’s done.
  • “Stuff We Don’t Talk About (That I Kinda Wish We Did).” Done.
  • “After A While People Aren’t That Interesting”.
    • Not sure if I actually agree with that, but it would be interesting to write.
  • “We’re All Connected, Okay Then What?”
  • “We Tolerate Really Low Standards For Some Reason”
    • That one might be a fun satire piece, Onion style. Actually there are probably a whole bunch of fun satire pieces to be written about marketing and startups. But is that really what I care about? Well, if I thought about it, it’s probably worth writing it and getting it out of the way (as part of a writing project, not necessarily as a top priority altogether.)
  • The Game Of Priorities
    • is something I might write about in my next vomit, because it’s something I’m actually concerned about right now and has direct implications for my own life.
