As I’ve thought about writing another post, I’ve been wrestling with myself: do I write for an audience or do I write for me? If I write for an audience, I would try to structure my posts around something, an idea, information relevant to people besides me, etc.
However, I don’t have an official audience. I’m just writing to anyone who MIGHT come across my blog but since this is only the second entry, it’s unlikely anyone will find it. And actually, that’s ok with me. I’m not even ready to share the link with my family, who would probably enjoy reading trivial things about my day, college classes, weekend plans, and funny pictures.
So I’ve decided. I’m writing for me. Maybe that will change in the future, maybe I’ll always write for me.
This past weekend was a blast. My family came up on Saturday morning, which was great since I had Friday afternoon/evening to work on homework. I was very successful during my 3½ hour study session at Panera, completely TWO take home tests, and writing 3 longer Facebook messages to friends who live away. Then, I came home, had supper, and caught up on my reading for another class. To top it off, I made cookies, watched most of Anne of Green Gables: The Sequel with my bestie Hannah AND wrote two letters to two of my guys overseas. Talk about a productive evening! Too bad the rest of the weekend wasn’t so productive, even though it was lots of fun!
After staying up too late on Friday night/Saturday morning to watch the neighbors dance to Spice Girls (Greve) and sing depressing country songs (Seieroe and Gosler) I spent the day with the family: brunch at Perkins, BBall at Hilton (ISU WINS!), supper at Legends tower, and Harry Potter 7! My parents headed back to their hotel room, while Emily decided to camp out on the couch for the night, in order to play DD for my roommate Meaghan, our neighbors Seieroe, Greve, Laura, and me later on. We all had a lot of fun, first swing dancing at the Country Bar Outlaws, then taking in a new atmosphere ( at least new to me) at Paddy’s.
Sunday morning, I went to church with the parents, and after a quick grocery shopping/project shopping trip with Emily, we all met at Hickory Park for a late lunch. Needless to say, it was a great weekend, even though I am still tired today. However, I got all my homework done, stayed awake in class AND had my first day of practicum at Gilbert High School. Add in a nap this afternoon before my HCC office hours, and an episode of Chuck, and my Monday is almost gone. I figured I should update though, share my news, and generally take a moment to just breathe.
Tomorrow is the first day of March. I feel like I should take advantage of that and start a new habit or something…. Guess that’s something I should consider doing during work tomorrow!
