It's 9 am and I'm in class with Steve.  I'm not supposed to be here and I have to pretend like I am, so instead of "taking notes" I'm going to blog.  Due to popular demand, and since it's the new year, it seems like the right thing to do.

One of the smartest decisions I ever made in my life, regardless of how spontaneous it was at the time, was dying my hair from blonde to red.  I can't be sure if it's a result of that change or if it was already in motion beforehand, but there are now certain blondes that I cannot stand.  I can't even be sure if it is the fact that they are blonde or if it's a personality trait that I only find in blonde people that just rubs me the wrong way.  It's just one of those things that grinds my gears.  Skinny, screeching, overly friendly, Kindergarden teacher wanna-be blondes who wear sweaters with big wooden buttons.

That's all for today.  Happy New Year!

Hello Everybody!

Welcome to my new blog.  As I'm sure you can tell, I am very new to the ever-expanding world of blogging.  I had an inclination that this was more than a hobby to most people, but I honestly had no idea how enormous the industry and, shall I say neighborhood, actually was.  Now, only a few hours after deciding to make my own, I'm starting to wonder if I really have what it takes to succeed in this universe.  I am a sporadic write at best, writing what hits me when it hits me, and writing in any style I see fit at the time.  This will be an adventure in self-discipline and structure, which, I suppose, is one of my goals for this endeavor.  

I've been thinking more and more about my semi-near future these days which has sparked some sort of motivation to do something about it.  To be more specific, I have come to the realization that in order to achieve the mild fame and extravagant fortune that I see unfolding in years to come, I must start establishing a name for myself on a much smaller scale.  This means that I have to start writing, frequently and openly, about a wide range of topics, to show whomever may read this that I know how.  Now, I'll be perfectly honest, at times nothing will make sense.  I may write from the heart one day, I may propose an open question for discussion the next, and then I might just copy and paste something I didn't even write but found worth sharing.  This is just how I function.  I'm sure you do, too, in certain aspects.  Maybe you like to switch up your shampoo every third time you buy it, you know, just to be crazy!  

Another goal of mine is actually quite obvious.  I want to read what other people have to say too!  I want to read about things I've never experienced or learn how to do something I've never tried or disagree with someone on something I'm pretty passionate about or laugh out loud or cry unabashedly over people I don't know at all.  I need to immerse myself into the world of words in order to make my niche there for the rest of my life.  Hmm, perhaps I should think of some sort of gimmick, something I can add to the end of each entry, something worth returning for next time...Nah, I think I should just concentrate on improving my writing and therefore improving my life and myself.

At the very least, you could keep reading to see how many commas I incorrectly use.
