What blogging means to me...

Do you remember those theme papers you would write in elementary and middle school?  Like the ones the kid writes on A Christmas Story and gets so excited about?  I always loved those things.  I loved journal projects.  I like writing.  I'm the geek who, while many people were struggling to get the minimum page requirement for an assignment, was having trouble staying below the maximum.  Yeah, I tend to ramble.  THIS is my journal.

I don't like any emotion except happiness.  I love to laugh--I hate to cry.  I hate it when other people cry.  I like to ignore emotions and pretend like they don't exist.  It doesn't work no matter how hard I try.  So, I have found that writing about the things that are happening in my life gives me an outlet to try and spin things in a more positive, humorous light. I've been told more than once that I take things to seriously.  (When I say more than once, I mean countless times.)  So welcome to my efforts to not take things so seriously.  Feel free to laugh at/with me on this journey.
