Firstly, I love to write. And like everything else, the more you do it, the better you become. So I will apologize now for my lack of experience but I know my writing will improve and my voice will become stronger.
Secondly, it’s fun! I get to share all this rubbish in my head. Hobbies, thoughts, opinions, complaints. Life is a journey … sometimes it’s a bag of gold and sometimes it’s a bag of mess. I want to start a conversation about all of it.
Thirdly, I work full-time in the science world. I desperately need a creative outlet. That being said, I will never blog about my work or the colorful characters I work with. Please read the following link to understand why. http://www.dooce.com/archives/daily/02_26_2002.html
Fourthly, I’m a people-person and a people-pleaser. Often I keep my opinions to myself because I don’t want to offend anyone. Well, let me apologize now. I’m sorry if something I write offends you. I have some strong opinions that I would like to share. I’ve silenced some of these views for so long, that my insides are starting to rust. So to quote Dr. Phil, “get over it!” (Yes, I’m embarrassed to quote Dr. Phil).
Fifthly, to become less sensitive and thicker skinned. My dear friend Kim asked, “What if you suck?” Then I suck. I’m not afraid of failure, I’m afraid of not trying.
Sixthly, it’s cheaper then therapy and less injurious then anti-depressants.
Hold your applause and check back soon for my second blog … why facebook annoys the hell out of me!
