This is from 8th April 2010 :)
* NB I haven't
So today I became a Blogger... If I'm honest, it probably has more to do with wanting to expel all of the things whirring through my brain than actually having anything to say, but hey, it's my blog and if I'm the only person who ever reads it then I'm cool with that!
I guess it's like having a diary of sorts - Of course, the whole point of a diary is that it's secret and that no-one else can/will ever read it. A blog - well, that's sending a stream of (un) consciousness out into the world for everyone to see. No matter, I don't have any juicy secrets to hide, and I'm too lazy to put pen to paper. You see there has always been a part of me that feels the need to vent. I dallied with Twitter (3 minutes of my life I'll never get back!), I briefly had a MySpace blog (1 post and 1 comment - the nicest post from a guy called David who, bless him, critiqued my writing in such an honest way that I only ventured back in MySpace to delete my page!).
I have a Facebook account which has taken over my life to such an extent that I have "friends" from every continent who I have more contact with than my real-life friends who live up the road. I have a mobile (who doesn't these days?) which I use solely as an alarm clock and a device to check my emails when I leave the house. What did you say? It's meant for calls and texts to people you know? I think not... It's not that I'm antisocial per se, it's more that I'm only social in certain situations - Like now.
With no-one else in the room I want to be outgoing and vibrant. In a room full of people... well I start to dial the colour spectrum down to a lighter shade of grey. I suppose that's why I started this... Step one to a world filled with colour. How dull do I sound right?! I'm not really I promise. I guess today is just a quiet day, tomorrow may be louder. Nice time to start a blog huh!
