I’ve realized that I never really blog about certain things – ever. Maybe I have sometimes, but I just don’t ever think to include them in posts because they seem quite redundant:
- Music – I don’t blog about my music tastes. I don’t really know why; I like a lot of different music, and it changes often. I don’t exactly have a set genre I prefer, so I hardly ever am able to answer such a question at ease, especially in person.
- Politics – I see no point in blogging about it and making a lot of people mad at me. In the past I’ve talked about it with friends. In middle school (seventh or eighth grade?) I found out my best best friend, Sage, and I were opposite of each other as far as politics went. Her dad and I were the same, though. We didn’t stop being friends because of who we rooted for in the election that year; we stopped being friends when I had to move from Austin (literally one week after the last day of eighth grade, whatever year that was in1) to Wills Point (with Mimi) for a while, and then to Forney, because my mom and lard had finally found a house. However, in high school it did ruin some friendships, so since I haven’t really talked politics with friends unless I found out that we shared the same parties because said friend(s) blurted it out once or twice, or whatever.
However, I also don’t think it’s necessary for me to blog about. It’s basically drama, and it’s very annoying. I hear about it on the news enough already; why bring it to my sanctuary?
- Daily ventures – Let’s face it: I don’t really have any unless you consider dancing around my room for one song knowing I’ll regret it later because of my stupid cyst that hates physical activity (even though I would love to be able to run a high school track again…2).
- My religious beliefs – Granted I’ll include some things in my posts here and there, but I’m not going to preach them out loud. It’s not something I want to do. Personally, I don’t believe that not preaching my beliefs to each and every person I meet each and every chance I get makes me any less of a Christian than someone who does. I’m not a preacher, and that is not my calling. If you’re a Christian and you feel as though it is your calling, then that’s great – wonderful! However, it is not mine, so I am not going to. I can only hope you’ll respect my doings as I will respect yours.
- How I’m not a hypocrite – I go back on myself all of the time, and I can’t really help it. However, I’m also still growing and maturing. I do believe there is a difference in being a bad hypocrite and being a good hypocrite. There are differences. I’m not perfect, so I hope you’ll understand and respect that.
- How I have my whole life figured out for me – Because I don’t, and those of you that do… In my opinion, I think your world will come crashing down sooner or later and that you’ll have this huge awakening. And people are probably going to say something about this one bullet point simply because I’m speaking my mind here a lot. And that’s fine. I may not know where I’ll be in five years, but I know where I am today – and to me, that’s all that matters right now. I’ve been through hell already growing up, and I’m trying to figure all of this life crap out. There’s only so much a person can do in a day. I think I actually post more about how I don’t have my life all figured out, especially here lately.
However, here I am… blogging about them. Is that/this considered “ironic”?
Anyway, feel free to throw some blogs at me I can read. I enjoy commenting on blogs as well because it makes a discussion… Yeah, I’m lame, I know. It’s just that I’ve realized a lot of blogs I used to read are closed now/haven’t updated for (almost quite literally) a year, and it’s kind of difficult to find new blogs…
mostly because I don’t know where to look.

And here’s a tweet from me.
Really don't wanna go to the ER, so body, you're gonna have to tell that cyst to fuck off so we can deal with the pain until August. K?

- I wanna beat my time of 1/2 mile in 4:11 minutes that I had in…what? The summer of 2007? Or was it 2006? Either way, I’m really not supposed to run like that because of a) my knees and b) my asthma – even when I am in shape. I love to run, but doctors said that if I kept running past my limit it could kill me. ILOVETORUNTHOUGH. In eighth grade my asthma kept me from being able to train/be able to be in cross country. So did my knees. They do this thing (I forget what it’s called) to where they literally go out of place, and walking on them/putting pressure on them makes this excruciating pain wash over my body, and the way said knee(s) feel is as if they are broken. It’s quite painful, and it happens when I’m running a lot/walking long distances. …Hence why I’m really not supposed to walk long distances yet I put that I am able to on job apps anyway, and I have decided from now on that I shouldn’t because my health really IS more important. ↩
