Quote of the day "Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending."
Quote of the day
I think....
"Ignorance is never the answer to a question."

The reason for the I think part is this is from a fortune my friend Rebekah and I found tonight but I don't have the paper to double check, so we will just assume. :)
At first this quote or fortune sounds totally bogus (pretty sure that's exactly what Rebekah said) but once you think about it you can see the deeper meaning. Not knowing or being ignorant is never an excuse. You have to step up and get the questions answered. You can't just expect the answer to come to you.

I feel like I accomplished a lot this weekend! I really didn't do much but I got everything on "my list" done.
This is a big deal for me because a lot of the times I feel like I don't get anything done. There is so much I need to do. I'm starting a blog, I need to get things going with school, I want to look for an apartment, and that's just the important stuff.
Part of my accomplishments this weekend is I took both my phone and laptop in to be fixed at the apple store. My phone piece of cake :) my laptop is "on vacation" for the next week or so. I am already going through laptop withdrawls! But this will probably be good for me. I spend a lot of time on my laptop not doing anything important and that probably hinders me from doing what needs to get done. So let's see how much I can get accomplished this week!!!
I am still tweaking my blog and that will slow down this week since no laptop. (I am posting this through my phone) I spent over an hour this week trying to put a slideshow on my blog and still haven't figured it out! Hopefully I will suddenly be able to figure that out when I get my laptop back.
Sigh....this is going to be a long week!!

Now where did that thought go??

Earlier today I had a brilliant idea for a blog. It was eloquent, put together, and my thought process just flowed perfectly! But many hours later when I went to write it the eloquence and inspiration were gone. (I probably should add that I was quite angry when I had the inspiration this morning) It was going to be about letting things go and I started writing it but could not get everything to come out right. Maybe I will be able to finish it later. I do love my last line though. "Maybe I care or have cared too much. But is that really such a fault?"

I am going to have to start writing things down when I get an idea because I can lose my thought process so quickly! I already know this and you would think this morning when I was spouting off to my work buddy I would have maybe jotted a few things down. No...I guess I thought that I was upset and irritated enough to remember. Negative! It looks like this blog thing is going to be slightly more than I thought....

Giving it a shot...finally

So, I have been saying for a few months now that I thought it would be neat to start a blog. Not because I think I have something amazing or profound to say but to try and get some thoughts out and organized? I am trying to find myself. Who I am, was, and who I am going to be.

I don't have a theme for my's going to be more of a this is just my life or lack of. =) I think it is going to take some time for me to really start posting real blogs but I will start with quotes. You know how I LOVE quotes!!

I don't really have anything else exciting to say right now. My inspiration is very tired and emotionally drained but maybe later. I am getting a few thoughts as I finish typing this up. For those that do take the time to read this thank you for "proving" your part in my life.
