I have a relationship with it. It's morphed so many times for me throughout my time using it. From being something I passively used, to something I started using in an active, interactive way, to something I had entire relationships via, and increasingly, back to something I use in a passive way. It will change more and more I'm sure.
My core group of online friends has changed. I miss you Mark, Kim and Paul. I truly do. I'm happy for you all because I know you are living your lives and that's good because I love you and want you to get the best from your own lives. Though I hope we are friends for a long time in some way.
When I went to New York, I was surprised to make new friends. I didn't expect that to happen with youtube again- making new friends is probably my favourite thing to do, it is like finding new colours in the spectrum that you didn't realise were there before. I'm excited about them. The more friends I make I feel like the more grounded I am and attached to the planet. I could go to so many places around the world and know someone who would have a coffee with me there and show me a good place to eat. That is amazing and wonderful and if there were gods of the internet I would praise them.
I can't sleep. I think I might be coming into a phase of creativity and unstability, which seem to go hand in hand, I've realised. That's a good thing though- I've gotten kind of bored of things as they are currently. I have been casting around for inspiration lately and I might have found some. A seam of inspiration to be mined. Today I did some paintings, apropos of nothing, and it seems like much too long since that has happened. I have a thirst to draw and paint and write and maybe even film and edit!

Oh check out my tumblr blog if you want. I am going to use it mostly for random links cause it's super simple to post links to things on it rather than going through this rigmarole every time I want to keep a note of something. Nathan- you should use tumblr, it would make your life easier!
