Well I did it!

Today is the Beginning...Of What?

Today is the first day my boredom ends! What should I do??? Start blogging? I have wanted to blog forever but didn't know how, if or  when to start. Today seemed like the day and I'm not sure why!

Two things happened recently that jogged it all into place. I ran into this computer science professor working in the gift department at Neiman Marcus. Jen and I were looking at journals for her. He overheard me saying I loved to write, journaled in bullets and wanted to blog but no one but me would be interested in what I had to say. Jen said she would be but knows I would write a whole lot of butt facts! The gentleman told me "just do it". Then last night I watched one of my all time favorite shows while wrapping Christmas presents, SATC. I have always loved the fact that Carrie just wrote whatever came into her mind.

I have a lot of stuff, real and BS, running through this head but the question is...I think I have a lot to say but will anyone else? I really wanted to title this blog, "Does Anyone Really Care What I Have to Say?" (that's the title I gave the prof at NM). Maybe I actually did call it that but I can't remember. That was five screens ago.

Penelope Trunk says to just start writing which is what I'm doing and I am going to practice everyday. I promise myself that I will write something everyday whether it's bullets or paragraphs. I can usually amuse myself and my goal is to, someday, amuse someone who reads my blog!


  1. I'm amused! :) Glad you started your blog. It's kind of cool to go back to the beginning and see where it all began. I started in similar fashion. Glad to be connected a year+ after you started.

  2. Awwwww! I can't even tell you how special it is, to me, that you took the time to head all the way back to the beginning AND comment. I know others have read it but never left their mark. Thank you so much, Jared. I'm happy, too, that we connected. Great win at YE. Awesome community. Makes me strive to be a better writer. I don't always comment at lick the frig but I've gotten in the habit of reading all your posts and I'm thoroughly entertained and engaged.
