Reasons why I am happy right now:
- I am going to ‘n’awlins’ for pardi gras. With my little bro ! Yes!
- My bogus cleanse is over and I can once again eat hard food…and drink (ergo:)
- I am a bit tipsy.
- The worst day of work EVER is finally over :) :) :)
Things that are cramping my style right now:
- Consideration of the hangover I’m going to be doomed with tomorrow
- My concern for America’s economic future
- The piles of work I have sitting on my desk anxiously awaiting my attention
Thus, blogga-world, I do not believe you will be hearing from me until I return from New Orleans–I will be bringing my laptop, of course, and I’ll have my mobile so perhaps I shall feel motivated to blog…although more likely than not I’ll be intoxicated. So there’s that.
Also…I just feel inclined to say that I was reading a fellow blogga’s thoughts on blogging recently, and she said something like ‘I am a writer, and not, I want to add emphatically, a diarist.’ Now…I want to emphatically add that I was equally amused and annoyed by this statement. This could be a reason why I’m not the prom queen of blogga-world, but in case you couldn’t tell, I am a diarist! Weblogs are not theses, they are not novels, and I don’t really take them all that seriously–this is mostly due to the fact that I don’t take anything too seriously, but of the things that should be taken seriously in my mind, weblogging isn’t particularly high on the list. Thus, I put very little thought into what the hell I write on here and just kind of ramble about whatever is on my mind at my time. I don’t censor myself and I don’t really think about how I might be coming across. Sometimes this results in me reading things I’ve written and feeling like an arse, but the thing is that I spend most of my life behaving in an appropriate and polite manner and this is sort of my outlet for the thoughts that are not necessarily expressed. I think this is kind of problematic because I think writing something makes it seem as though the ideas being expressed are well thought out or complete depictions of the issue at hand, and thus a passing thought becomes this statement of what I believe or think–when often it’s just a small slice of my overall view on something that is skewed by a variety of factors, ie. recent events in my life, my mood, my disposition, etcetera. And for the love of god (or whatever) please don’t take anything I say all that seriously. Lord knows I don’t.
That is kind of ramble-y, but hopefully you get the point even though I don’t think I’ve made much sense. I really enjoy the fact that I don’t need to worry about being politically correct, polite, etcetera on here–sure I think it probably leads to me expressing a lot of negativity and shit, but it needs to be expressed my friends! Also–believe it or not–I rarely curse in real life. Isn’t that strange? I was thinking about how a lot of people don’t curse in their weblogs, and the thing is that I don’t really curse when speaking–but I do curse when thinking. Haha. Doesn’t everyone?
So the things I say on here…I think they should be read as thoughts, as writing for me is more of an expression of thought than it is a means of stating something.
Hah, I think that sounds kind of contradictory and stupid, but it is the best way of conveying what I’m trying to say…
I think I need some sleep!
If I don’t write from nola, peace and love for the next few days! :)
