Did You Know? Part One

...that blogging is a wonderful way to avoid doing the more important things you should be doing? I’m sure you did know that, because so is blog-reading.

Earlier tonight I thought I had something to say, but now it seems…I’m at a loss. But I’m determined to write something that isn’t my homework. I guess we can quickly move into “Did You Know” part deux: My banner is named after my all-time favorite Guster song of the same name. (I secretly think I’m clever for creating that banner with the name just peeking out there. Not-so-secretly, I’m not that clever.) I adore this song and a few years ago I thought it captured who and where I was…and in hindsight it definitely wasn’t. You can see the "2004-2005 Me" link to the right that was my old livejournal from junior and senior year. Most of them are pretty happy-go-lucky; I was still in the bubble of college and I really didn't have a lot of worries. I wish I hadn't deleted my 2005-2006 blog - I remember a lot of those posts being emotional and negative. I think that was still the old me; the person in the song that is half-asleep and lacking direction. And then 2007 came along and with a couple great things came a lot of awful things. And now, in 2008, it's like I am coming out of a fog and realizing everything I have in front of me, and it's looking pretty good. That's not to say I still don't have bad days, but with the friends that I have and a great education in the works, and a supportive and loving family, and (for the most part) my health, that's really all I need. I have direction.



I guess what I'm saying is...I'm coming downstairs and saying hello in 2008.

Ah! A new blog to read. Exciting... yet horrible for my career.
