First Blog Entry....kind of scary

So my roommate Kaylynne started a blog a little while ago, and it interested me to start one myself. Sure there are things like Facebook to keep us "connected" with the people we love, but really, having hundreds of friends to try to keep up with can be a daunting task, to say the least, and we really don't ever really get the chance to keep up with their lives the way we may want to.

This blog will be my attempt to keep the people who mean the most to me up-to-date with what's going on in my life. I am hoping that this will accomplish at least two tasks which will better my mental situation. The first will be that it will interest my parents enough to finally break down and get a computer so that they can stay in touch with what their daughter is "really up to" over there on that island. The second is that when I get home to BC for visits (which isn't often enough), that my every single one of my friends and family members won't have to ask me the same questions over, and over, and over again. They will have the opportunity to read this blog and not have the need to ask me simple questions, when it's the real important ones that should be asked when you haven't seen someone you love in so long! I hope that didn't come off as snooty or impolite.

So the next big question is, who is going to actually read this anyway??? Blogging has been around for quite a while now and I'm sure that people are sick of it, but it's new for me so I'm going to give it a shot (I accidentally wrote "shit" instead of "shot", laughed, and then changed it). I can be a brutally honest person sometimes...jusk ask my co-worker/good friend Sarah. Never have I once not given her my complete and utter truthful opinion on the guys that she dates. Another thing that you will learn quickly about me is that I have 3 major Sarah's in my life. I will give you a quick run-down on each of them in a vain attempt to clear things up for you.

Sarah #1=heterolifepartner from BC who I've known since grade 8.

Sarah #2= longest known and amazing friend who I've known since I was 5 years old and now lives in Seattle with her husband and 2 kids (I will refer to her as Gill from this point on)

Sarah #3= co-worker and fantastic friend who has one of those laughs that you could pick out of a crowd of a million people.

I also have a list of Chris's that I'll have to clear up someday, but not today.

  1. you know, I love your parents ...but seriously..them getting a computer? Which one of them will figure out how to turn it on? They are still trying to figure out how to use the satelite tv at the lake! A computer just doesnt seem like a likely purchase for them, lol...just saying. Thanks for sharing your case you dont are my hero...I so admire you and your bravery. I could never have left my family and gone so far away. So for what its worth, I am proud of you and your accomplishments! you go girl!
