That One Time I Started A Blog

What's the big deal with this blog business anyway? Everyone is doing it. The majority of them probably end up as white noise in the sea of information and media that is the World Wide Web.


So why would I create a blog? I'll admit to actually creating this blogger account ages ago...and doing absolutely nothing with it. Why? Because I'm one of the busiest people alive. I also mainly created the account in order to have access to a blog a friend of mine was writing at the time (shout out to my bro Paul).

Reality: My life is jam-packed full of random randomness, and sometimes I think I'm one of those people who just can't say no. Due to this fun fact, I'll add the disclaimer here that I have absolutely no idea how often I'll post to this dang thing. Probably not often. It's like keeping a diary. I never kept a diary as a kid. One of those secret places for young girls to write their hopes and dreams. Blah! Ain't nobody got time fo dat.

So once again, why am I doing this? Well I do often get the sudden urge to rant about random topics. But I also have a filter - enough to realize that if I posted half of this stuff on Facebook, nobody would really care. And that's why a blog for me. Because I can rant here all I want about any topic I want. And you people can't do anything about it (besides stop reading said blog, I suppose)!

As a first post, I suppose I should introduce myself. I'm a 20-something young professional working in the Advertising business. I'm the youngest Account Executive at my agency (a fact I am very proud of), and something of a workaholic (not so proud of that). A Floridian, born a raised. But I wouldn't mind getting out of the heat and moving to a cooler climate in the future. It's freaking hot here!

I'm a huge nerd, and I have no shame in admitting it. There are so many geeky things I could rant about in this post - so many things coming to mind - but I'll save that for a later time.

A lifelong dancer and musician, I'm obsessed with the arts. I also LOVE to travel, though I don't nearly as much as I would like, being a poor young 20-something and all. I'm also an avid DIYer. And I should have a lot of fun DIY posts in the near future, because my roommate is newly engaged (yay!!!) and we're planning to DIY a butt-load of stuff for her wedding. Cannot wait. To add to that, I highly enjoy cooking and baking.

I'm happily in a relationship with an amazing dude. Pretty much the sweetest guy I've ever met. He's also a nerd, so he's able to put up with my quirks...most of the time. He's in the Army National Guard and is just finishing up police academy, so pretty soon I'll have a cop on my hands. Spiffy.

I should add I'm also an unashamed conservative who is not afraid to be politically incorrect. This blog isn't meant to be political, by any means. But occasionally my opinions will come out. Any I don't apologize for them. They're my opinions and you are, of course, free to think or feel differently. That's what makes this country great.

So that's me. At least, all I can really think to talk about for now. More to come, if I have the time and motivation to post, which may or may not happen, as I stated earlier.

Until that time, may the Force be with you.
