The First One


A few years ago, I was confident of one thing. I will never, ever create a blog. I will read them, but I have no desire to put all my business out into cyber space for everyone to see. So that being said, welcome to my blog. Why, you ask? I can give you a few reasons.

First: Everyone I know has gradually spread out all over the country and this is my way of keeping in touch.

Second: One of my favorite people in the whole world has a blog that I follow regularly. I know her better than I ever would have otherwise. I hope that I can return that favor. Also, I plan to regularly steal her blog ideas such as using code names and having weekly features.

Third: I like to talk about myself. I hope this will be therapeutic and interesting for me, even though there is a strong possibility that no one else cares. I have some stories to tell and I hope that maybe telling those stories might help other people like me.

I am not a writer or poet or even very smart. I am just a regular person who feels like sharing. I hope to share with you things that are funny, challenging, weird, somber, difficult, ridiculous, mundane, or meaningful to me in someway. I would love to hear from you anytime, whether I know you in person or not. I will try my hardest to keep up with this.

I now officially eat my words about never having a blog.
