I’ve been focusing a lot on posting the creative stuff lately.  But I wasn’t lying when I said that this blog was still going to be my blog.  I like having a place to post the things I’m thinking about and just whatever random thing strikes my fancy at any given time.  At the moment, I’m trying to keep from posting a bunch of philosophical/political rants because I don’t know if anybody would actually care to read my opinions on the matter.  And besides, that’s what Facebook is for.  So instead, I thought I’d fulfill another of the Blog Challenge entries I listed on my ‘Notes for the Future’ blurb.

Writing Prompt #1.

One of my favorite things to do is write.  I used to have this book that was literally full of different prompts.  I have no idea what happened to it during the moving process.  It’s likely still in a box somewhere back in Pennsylvania.  I’m sure that I’ll find it someday.  Thankfully, the internet is a pretty good place to find prompts that millions of people have created and shared which I intend to use some of here on my blog.   Some may be prompts I need to answer for myself, others may be completely on the creative side or geared towards one of my ‘characters.’ Feel free to use them for yourself and please share the outcome with me if you do!

#1. “Addict. Everyone is addicted to something in some shape or form.  What are things you can’t go without?”

My ‘siblings.’

If you’ve taken a look at my Notes for the Future post, you’ll see a list of prompts that I nabbed from a 30 Day Blog Challenge I found when I first started writing on this thing.  I’m not even sure where I found the challenge or when at this point because, well, it’s been awhile and I haven’t really been all that good at keeping up to date with this!  Anywho… One of the prompts was to write about my siblings, so how about we do that!

New year, new me?

I have never been the type of person to really do New Year’s resolutions.  I feel like they always end up being these huge promises you make to yourself that you break in less than a week.  Everyone is always starting a diet come January 2nd, because you can’t start it on the 1st when you’re busy eating all the crap you bought for the party the night before.  I know that I’ve been that person at least once but this year I thought that I’d try something a little different.  Instead of making empty promises, I have set myself ten goals.

Happy birthday to me.

Today, I turn 35.  It’s been an interesting year/life so far.  I’m not exactly where I thought I would be when I turned 35, but I’m still here.  So this year, for my birthday, I’ve decided to make a list.  What kind of list, you ask?  Well, my blog so far has been full of a lot of whining and complaining about what hasn’t gone right in my life.  So I’ve decided that this list is going to be ’35 Things I’m Thankful For.’  It’s about time for something positive, right?

What a year.

Clearly, I am a terrible blogger.  I was always really bad at keeping up with my own personal journal, too.  Diaries, seriously, what’s the point?  All you do is sit and ramble a bunch of useless personal thoughts that nobody else is ever going to read.  But this?  Other people are going to see it.  Maybe even comment on it.  It’s going to be out there for the entire world to see, which is pretty terrifying if you think about it.  Especially for an introvert.  So maybe that’s why I haven’t really bothered sharing much since I moved to Florida, or much at all before that.  Though, I feel like I said more here than I’ve ever really said to anyone I know in person.  So that’s saying something, I guess.
