Matt vs. The FUTURE!!!

dun dun dunnn.....

wow, so here i am standing on the edge of tomorrow, what will the future bring? its kinda like the christmas eve of my life. tomorrow you know things are going to be great, you have waited for this moment for so long, but this time i am just a little bit nervous.

so, to bring you up to speed...

today i just had my last in class, sit through a lecture, class period in college. i know, you might be saying, no big deal, people graduate all the time. but, you don't know what it has taken to get to this point. i have been going to school at dixie college, off and on, for close to 12 years. that is enough time for me to have a deacon. i don't even want to think about all the money (through a lot of generous donations of my loved ones, mom and dad, thanks, i love you. and a lot of blood sweat and tears of my own.) that i have spent on this expedition. i am sure that there has been many a time when my poor wife just thought "would ya give it up already", but she has stuck by me. i have been on the campus of dixie college longer then most of the faculty and staff. to some it all up, i have been going to school for way to long. so, now i finish. i take a step out into the world and say "world, do your worst". you know, i don't feel any smarter. i don't feel like i have done this great thing, but inside i cant help but smile little. many have said, "but matt, you own your own business, why do you need to go to school?" and to that i say, for ME.

its not like me to linger on something. i like to walk to the edge and jump, and not look to much at the cliff, cause that way you might not jump. i am the, rip off the band-aid quick, to get the pain over with type of guy. this time i stuck it out, i saw it through to the end.

to the future i go, today is over and tomorrow will be full of all new adventures. so, to the world i say "bring it on" i feel more ready to take you on then ever before. i have sat looking over this edge long enough, now its time to step to the edge and jump. enjoy the ride on the way down, and i will see you all when i surface.

Matt vs. :)

So it has been a few days, but hey its my blog, so I guess it doesn't matter. This song makes me smile. "they got cool cool guy errands that they have to walk to", lol. Man, it seems these days I cling to anything that will make me smile. You know when everything just isn't going according to plan. Well, I feel like i am stuck in that rut right now. Not that anything in particular is that bad. Just things are just not going how I would like them too. You know what they say, "best laid plans of mice and men." So, I find things like this that make me smile.

Thanks for taking the time to check my blog. Things will get better, for everyone. Things wont always be this bad. I have to keep looking up, keep laughing, and just remember that this is only temporary. :) Let me know what you do to "Keep Smiling."

Matt Vs. Friends

Here is a new song from The Flight of the Concords. It is from the new season. I rather enjoy some of their new songs. I think that these guys are hilarious. I do have to admit it does take a few listens to truely enjoy The Flight of the Concords, but once you get there humor style it will have you laughing on the floor.

So, that brings me to my topic today. Am I a bad friend? I feel that I am a pretty good friend, but then at times I lose contact with friends to soon. So, that has got me thinking, maybe I am not good at keeping my end of the friend bargain. Or, do I just rub people the wrong way. You know maybe I just try to hard, or that I am a bit like The Flight of the Concords, it takes a bit to get to get to know me and my style. Thus, sometimes people dont hang around long enough to really appreciate me. lol. Well anyways, that is what i have been thinking about lately.

Matt Vs. The Blog

Well, it has happened, I finally set up a blog. I have had request, not a lot of them but I have had them, to start a blog. So, here I am, and here it is. The biggest thing that was holding me back from doing this blog thing was I needed a hook for it. So, last night while I could'nt sleep I came up with it. So, basically I will report on Matt (me) versus different things, or challenges, that I could be facing.

A little bit about me, in case there might be someone out there reading this that doesn't know me. My name is Matt Dotson, I am a thirty something small business owner, with average English skills. That just about sums it up, but I am going to work hard at making this blog fun and interesting.

Here is one of the best clips from "the Office". Love the show.
