Back At It
Have you seen this? I'm sure you have. It's one of those "funny cuz it's true things". Makes me smile!
I think I'm going to start blogging again. I now like the thought of having empty space to bounce ideas off of, that's not a journal type thing too. Also, before I did it worrying too much about readers and responses and proper grammar/spelling. Now, I don't care. I mean if people don't like what I have to say here they don't have to read it, right? When I first moved to Boise I met this French professor (who ended up being kind of a wack-o stalker, and I could be dead right now if he weren't kind of a weiny of a man that I could beat up. I could blog about that later if you wanted.) who told me this quote "Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind." I hate that I'm reminded of him when I think of this quote, at least it's not his, but I'm going to adopt this idea for a while. Along with "Approval: neither required nor desired." Oh and "No appologies!" I'm on a mission to discover who really matters in my life I guess, and more about who I am. Boise's been a huge change and change stretches our character. So I'm going to explore my character stretches, instead of resisting them and trying to get them to contract faster. This will be my motif for it! I don't know if I used that word right just now.
So here is where I'm going to say what I feel. Because in reality what you say does have to be controlled. I don't want to say controlled. More perfected into saying it so it's heard corectly, maybe. I don't know. Bluntness can be obnoxious and "calling it like you see it" is all relative...Opinions can be changed, and for me I need to hash them out before I finally have a better judgement, and feel confident in sharing them in a public domain. I like having ambigous philosopical ideas but I also like to be vain and shallow sometimes too. Maybe that's the equally two part formula to coming up with a sound opinion on any topic??
Well!! To start my journey of saying what I want I would first like to say how I feel about Oprah. I hate her. She ruins everything and is over-rated! I no longer dwell on why I hate her. I just want to make it known that I do. Hate is a strong word; ( I don't know the proper use of these ;;;;) a strong negative one. (Later I'll post that I'm on a mission to be positive too!!) So I should clarify that I hate her image and what she stands for. Anyone who demands attention like that, just isn't right. False humility. She's not that cool. Peace out Oprah! I'm glad your show's going to be over. Now I don't have to hear your loud voice like a fog horn blaring out on commercials. That is a positive for me to end on!
Sue Sylvester. Greatest opinionater ever! Do I dare admit she's my roll model??
