Welcome Hazel and S. Gregory! You guys helped me clear the 30's. Thanks so much. :)

There is one thing that I really love about blogging, and I'm pretty sure you can guess it from the title of this post. I love...getting popular and narcissistically posting details of my daily life and knowing that people are interested in it.

Just kidding. I love how writing a blog has enabled me to find so many people who are so much like me. I have not had one negative encounter in the nearly year and a half I've been writing this. Everyone is so encouraging and happy and cute. You all offer wonderful advice and hilarious anecdotes. Getting comments makes me almost as excited as finding out I have new followers. More so, maybe.

I'm not gonna lie to you guys. This summer has kind of proved to me that I really don't have many friends at home anymore. The group that I considered my best friends has consistently not invited me to anything all summer, though they still continue to hang out with each other and invite new people. I don't know if it's college that has changed them, or changed me, or changed us, but all I know is they don't care about me anymore and, while it bothers me a little in the moments when I find out that all of my friends are at someone's bonfire or movie night, I really don't mind all that much.

The fact is, I consider you all my friends more than those kids I hung out with in high school. I'm sure you know much more about my life from college and this summer, and I'm pretty convinced you care more.

So thanks for being awesome! :)

Sorry for not posting these past few weeks. I've been pretty busy with work and visiting Brad. (We took his 2-year-old nephew to the zoo the last time I visited. It was so much fun.)* Next week I'm heading down to visit him for the entire week. I'm pretty excited.

I think that's about it for now. I'm all worded out. More later.

*That's a bad excuse. I've had a lot of free time between those things. I just haven't felt motivated.


  1. Congrats on hitting 40 followers! And I'm glad I could help with that achievement :)

  2. 40...wow. I remember a time when you were under 10. People will find quality and stay around for more. So stop apologizing for not posting. You can't do that because when you do post you give it your full effort and write interesting posts. Post when you feel like it. Make that part of your style too. We aren't going anywhere. Hope you keep having a great summer.
