So besides the fact(s) that I think too much and need a way to organize my thoughts, and that this is a rough equivalent to a Facebook note (I love Facebook notes!), and that I kind of really just like the sound my keyboard makes when I get typing really fast...there are two main reasons that I'm doing the blog thang.
1) Sara Bareilles does it. Enough said. Actually, enough can never be said about my dear Sara. But I'm done sounding like the creeper fan that I am (for now). (I download the full discography of every musician she even mentions in her blog. And I laugh out loud reading her blog in my dimly-lit bedroom with the door shut. And I put her songs/lyrics into every other song I know. And if a TV show/movie was ever made about my life, I daydream about how she would write the soundtrack and play the character of me. All right I'm done.)
2) I have this theory (oh, boy, here it comes...a thought-bubble-explosion) that in the modern world, there is
For a prime example of this information overload, take Facebook. It's a magical living, breathing, international journal where you can see someone's likes, dislikes (they have yet to create a button for those many dislikes...), pets, parents, friends, photos, links, and location at the click of the mouse/keypad/iPad. (What were they thinking when they called it the iPad?!? Mad TV sketch a-ringin' a bell, anyone?) And as if all THAT'S not enough, you have status updates, so everyone can know where you are and what you're doing and how you're feeling at any given time.
My question about all the info is not "why?" Nor is it a who, a what, a when, a where, or a how. I just want to know if, without knowing a single fact about me, you can sit there and read my ramblings. Unless you followed this link from my Facebook (ironic, no?), you don't know me. Try digging around a little.
You don't know my name.
You don't know if I'm a girl
or a guy
or a rodent of unusual size.
You don't know how I feel about the future.
You don't even know how I feel about grilled cheese.
But you've gotten this far.
My challenge to you is to continue.
