Lately I've been introduced to blogging from a series of influential sources--the main one's being YouTube, Nerdfighting, and Maureen Johnson. I've never really considered having a blog, and heaven knows I don't need any more websites to be keeping up with; I already have two YouTube channels, a Twitter account, a DailyBooth, a Facebook, various profiles on "the ning", and multiple e-mail accounts. Do I really need to publish myself elsewhere on the internet? Really?
Um...yeah...apparently I compulsively sign up for these things against my own will--and I might add "better judgement". Oh well. I've already created my blogging account, so there's no turning back now. As Andrew Lloyd Webber would say, I've "passed the point of no return".
Today it's been raining a lot, so naturally it made me decide to join BEDA fourteen days late. Those two things are OBVIOUSLY inexplicably related. Rain does weird things to me like that; for instance, today I've randomly burst into "Drip Drip Drop, Little April Showers" and "Singin' in the Rain" more times than I care to admit--and in public, too. Not that I really care. I've kind of stopped caring what the public at large thinks of me. My motto--if I had one--would go something like this: WHO CARE'S WHAT OTHER PEOPLE THINK? IF YOU LIKE YOU, THAT'S WHAT REALLY MATTERS!
I only wish that I had figured this out much sooner in life. Like in third grade when I would have given ANYTHING to be friends with "The Popular Girls". Their pink glitter and shiny pigtails enticed me to join them; I could never figure out what set them apart from me. What is it? I would think to myself, Is it the way their moms perfectly curl and fluff their bangs every morning? Is it because they have more money? Is it the giga-pets? I honestly desired a giga-pet as an elementary schooler merely because I thought it would magically make me more "cool". How wrong I was.
I have learned much since then. I no longer attempt to be one of the "In-Crowd" by buying giga-pets...I've moved on to bigger and better things...which is why I've started a blog: it's what all the cool kids are doing!! Ha ha ha ha ha. I'm totally kidding, of course. I'm starting a blog because I've missed writing lately....AND all the cool kids are doing it.
I think I'll go play with my giga-pet now.
