Just an introduction…

Having heard from a few people who used to read my Myspace blog – you remember Myspace, right? – I decided that I’d start to chronicle my life again.  Granted, nothing outrageously interesting happens in my life, but I’m just nerdy enough to admit that I enjoy writing.

Originally, my Myspace blog was started as a way for me to share my 2006 New Year’s resolutions with my friends and track my progress throughout the year.  Below is the list of rather interesting resolutions I made that year:

1.  To get in better shape through exercise and sensible eating.  There is no reason I should be a fat, slovenly heifer the rest of my life.

2.  To try not to be so critical of everything and everyone, no matter how tacky they dress, how hateful they are, or how slowly traffic lights change.  Karma will eventually come back around.

3.  To take control of the things in my life that I can – and should – have control over.  For instance, I will not spend money that I need not spend and I will save more money.  I will also take control of my weight – it’s my body, dammit!

4.  To be a good friend and not have knee-jerk holier-than-thou reactions to a problem when presented to me.  I will make a supreme sacrifice and only say, “I told you so,” no more than three times in 2006.

5.  To find a new job that is AT LEAST 50 minutes closer to home.  There is no reason for me to drive all over creation to be under-appreciated and underpaid for the massive amount of work that I do.  Screw you, CNI.

I was more successful at some of those than others.  For instance, since that time, I’ve lost over 70 pounds.  I also did not say “I told you so” more than three times (although I found that “you should have listened to me” works just as well, as my roommate at the time can attest to).  I also found a new job, hated it and started another only to be released a few days later because of budget constraints (or so I was told), and wound up on my feet at my current job.

I’ve tried to think of a specific purpose for this blog with no success.  I’m reasonably good at everything I try to do, but not great at any one specific thing.  I take a passing interest in many things, but rarely grab hold and become an expert at anything.

With that in mind, I figured that the only thing I’m really good at pushing myself through life.  And, you know, that’s hard enough without having to become great at anything.  So I’m settling for being a run-of-the-mill person with a great personality and making the most of it.  And that, my friends, is the purpose of this blog: to chronicle the life and times of an average person who just happens to have a lot of interesting times to share with others.

My hope is that you’ll laugh! You’ll cry! You’ll gasp in amazement!

But probably not.  More than anything, you’ll just laugh at my stupidity (don’t worry; I’ll be laughing with you), empathize with the things I face with my friends and family, and learn a thing or two about yourself.

I suppose we’ll see, won’t we?  So please, sit back, enjoy, and give me lots of feedback (I’m a feedback whore).  And if you have questions, please do not hesitate to ask them!

Until next time…
