Hello! Welcome to my blog! This is such a high-pressure moment that I’m going to do my best not to scare away any potential readers out there with my very first post. If you read my About Me (right over there in the menu if you have not), you’ll learn that I am a very random person and my thoughts are very eclectic at best — thus the name of my blog.
You’ll find that I write like I speak (to some extent) and that I really enjoy parentheses. For those of you who actually know me in real life, you know that I speak very quickly, I love tangents, and I often change thoughts mid-sentence (or mid-word). My speech often has a difficult time keeping up with my brain and many times, especially when I get going, I forget what my point even was in the first place. It’s a problem, I know, I’m working on it. So, just a little forewarning for all of you readers out there, you have that to look forward to!
I love to write and as long as I can remember I have wanted to write a book. Unfortunately, I feel like that goal might be a bit much to take on at this point in life and so I thought maybe a blog might be a more manageable (less scary?) starting point. The only question was, what could I possibly write about that might be of interest to other people? Or, how and what could I possibly name a “themed” blog when there are so many different things that interest me or so many different life stories to tell or so many different things that I mull over on any given day? But, like most good ideas, this one finally came to me once I stopped thinking so hard about it and, well, now here we are.
I am hoping to write a new post weekly (no promises, but I will do my best), and I am hoping that none of this will start to come across like a drawn out Xanga post (anyone else out there remember Xanga?) from back in the day. I have plenty of topics in my arsenal to last us for quite some time so you’ll have to check back soon to see where we go next! Until then, welcome and I hope to see you all again!
