This should be an interesting experience. It’s been a while since I’ve played around on an actual blogging site or forum. I guess I just sort of fell out of it after my breakup with my ex-husband. We met through an on-line community and we both had a passion for on-line debating and discussion. Believe it or not, there really was a time when raving assholes didn’t dominate the internet. It’s hard to imagine, but it’s true, I assure you.
Anyway, this whole “first post”/”introduce yourself” thing is sort of nostalgically goofy. I’m reminded of the first day of classes when we all had to get up and say who we were and what we did over the summer. It’s crazy the level of subconscious desperation that ritual takes on as the class years progress. In kindergarten, it was no big deal for anyone; in 8th grade some are sweating bullets, for one reason or another; by college most don’t give a damn anymore. Crazy.
I will close this now, before things get awkward. I jumped on WordPress after reading an article on Facebook and realizing that I’ve become one of those people who add five paragraphs to every post. Yeah, that means get a blog and stop inflicting yourself on your friends. I feel pretty shitty, actually, as I realize I’ve been doing it for a couple of weeks. Yikes. Oh, well, live and learn. Here I am, after all. A bit tardy, perhaps, but present none-the-less.
Story of our lives, eh?
