This has taken me awhile, mostly because I am generally against publishing my personal life on the oh-so-public internet. But lately, I've become a blog-hound - I totally suck up information about other people's lives and have really grown to love it. I find myself running into things on a daily basis and mentally composing my reactions, cracking jokes, telling funnies, whatever. So, here I am.
However, I've had some serious hang ups about starting one. Here are my reasons: 1) I generally think that if you're interested enough in hearing my random ruminations that you're
- a) a friend or family member of mine (that I'll probably talk to sooner or later. Hi!)
- b) some lunatic who is bored at work and trolling for entertainment (sorry - none here)
- c) some lunatic looking for their next victim (for the record I am 6' tall, 850 pounds and I live with a huge doberman. Nyeah.)
- d) someone from High School that, had I wanted to keep in touch with you so you could hear my effusive comments, I would've.
So if you're anyone but a) please stop reading.
If you're still reading - Hi Megan!
No really, if you're still reading, you're probably wondering "Why on earth is this person even creating a blog if they hate it so gosh-darn much?"
I'll tell you why: because I can. Also, because I find myself confronted with some pretty weird stuff on a daily basis, which makes me laugh, vomit, tear-up (more on the urine bushes later) or generally want to share with someone. Anyone. And I can't always hop on email and write down my thoughts and send them off to my friends. Also, my boyfriend doesn't want to hear about the urine bushes anymore.
Relax. It's mostly random stuff. It won't be too painful - and you might find it amusing.
Also, while I do keep a journal - I understand the fundamental reasons why people create blogs in the first place: for attention. And keeping a personal journal isn't really accomplishing much in the "public accolades" column on my life's scorecard (although, it's doing wonders for the "philsophical musings that make absolutely no sense" portion).So here's to you, whoever you are. Welcome to my random acts of life.
