Is anybody there?

I kinda like that this blog has fallen off the map. I can use it as more of a stream of consciousness excercise. I tend to psych myself out on my other blog with all kinds of expectations. Here I will simply be myself. Usually being myself at blog time is usually a downer. It's the end of the day and I'm tired. Often, there is some discouraging event on my mind and sometimes I feel downright depressed. This is not something that I necessarily want to share with the world at large. Writing it down helps me to deal with my feelings. I know, I know, this kind of thing belongs more in a journal. I think the fact that somebody somewhere might read it kind of keeps it real. I don't expect comments on this blog, but it could happen.

That's all

Still checking this blog? FYI, there's a new blog in town that's getting much better reviews (for spelling): . Tell your friends. This is important because my self-esteem is now being based on how many comments I get on my posts. I've now placed my emotional well-being in your hands (or 'hand' if you've recently been in a farming accident involving threshing equipment).

I'll keep this blog for a while just for nostalgia, and I like the picture. At last, a chance to share my lack of photogeneity with the world!

Um, Yeah

The original name for this blog is "Um, yeah". I was trying to think of something appropriately anti-climatic for my blogging debut. The problem? "Um, yeah" was already taken! This makes me feel even less digitally significant, if that's possible.

I'm not sure how I feel about blogging. As I write this I am considering deleting the entire thing. In fact, if you have somehow discovered this blog then, Please, don't tell anybody (unless, of course, you think this entry is "wicked cool" in which case you may spread the word ONLY to those you are confident will have a similar reaction.)

The trouble with blogging is that you have to have strong feelings about...anything. So this blog won't be so much a sounding board for my strong opinions or a place where I emotionally "dump" on the internet. Rather, I will simply post extremely random thoughts. Like...I'm going to learn Chinese. Seriously.
