I swear that I waste so much time on the computer. I work and work on various logos and website ideas, but nothing comes to life. This reminds me of my good friend Ed. He does the same thing. He will design and design and write up business plans for his business and at the end of it all he is left with a bunch of half-started ideas.
Well, heres the deal. I have been wanting to make a logo for my local Karate Dojo (Helena En Shin Do), a logo for my brother’s Karate business (Pacific En Shin Do), and a website for Helena En Shin Do, a website for my church (Friendship Baptist Church), a website for a missionary family (The Epps to Nicaragua) and so on and so forth. Actually, this gives me an idea, I’ll make a list of all the things I want to do for other people. Here’s the list:
- Logo for Helena En Shin Do Karate
- Logo for Pacific En Shin Do Karate
- Website for Helena En Shin Do Karate
- Website for my church: Friendship Baptist Church
- Website for Keni and Vanessa Epp, missionaries to Nicaragua
- Finish my own portfolio section, that’d be nice
- Website/Web Application for Real Estate idea
- Business card for Colin, my friend who is in the clothing business for Cardboard Robot
And….as you can see, I fill my life with so much stuff that I say I am going to do for others. But what good is talking about it when who knows how much of this list will actually get done. Is anyone out there like this? Do you piddle around with a ton of ideas, getting none done?
My wife, Toni was just talking to me about this very issue. People all around me will ask me, Rogie how is life? What do I say? Ohhh man, it is sooo busy. I work all day long at Travel Montana, then I go home and work. Toni asks me, does this really happen? No way. I go home and piddle around forever on projects that just don’t seem to get finished. I sware sometimes people get in these situations, what I call “infinite loops.” You know in coding, when you make a for…loop or a while…loop and you some nasty code that causes this loop to keep going and going and going with no end? Yeah, you know that feeling? Thats how my current Web Design/Project life is going. How do you know for sure you say? I’ll prove it. I’ll find all of this meaningless crap I build, from logos to pixelart to God only knows what and I’ll post them on this site. For starters, here is the Helena En Shin Do Logo:
 Here is some more crap, I like to call the piratey one “skurvy”:
 Once again, I have found more of this piddling crap I do. I think this is some sort of nautical logo, you know with a whale fin and all. I think that it was inshpired by “The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou”:
