:(

I was going to do a post about my little Christmas shindig last night but it just makes me feel a little sad and a little mad so I’m going to skip it.

It’s freezing cold out today and I keep procrastinating on my laundry, but I’ve got to get it done soon or I won’t have anything to wear to Cuba.

They’ve also started renovating my kitchen & bathroom which kind of sucks. I like the idea of getting a brand new kitchen & bath with more counterspace and such, but I really don’t want to live through it.

We only have one bathroom, it’s going to be a very intricate dance to be able to use it while they’re renovating.

*sigh*

It’s going to take 3+ weeks by my estimation.

Yay for quizzes!

Every blog needs one of those dorky posts that contains all your badges from the quizzes you take online…

This would be the post I speak of.

Questions for my readers

To all my readers out there:

Have you ever been ostracized, been outcast and alone? Do you know why you were subjected to this? Would you share your experience with me?

What did you do about it? How did you deal? Did you ever take action, or did you let it fester? Did you get over it? Did you heal?

I’m hurting pretty bad right now and am hoping to find solace in the fact that others out there have had this happen to them too. Will you tell me your story?

I’m really depressed right now, so I don’t think I’ll be writing in here for a while. It’s too upsetting to even write about.

See you when the funk is gone.

Accomplished vs. Normal

Well, I don’t really know what to write in here just yet, but I’m going to give it a shot. Judy keeps telling me that I should start writing again to stay healthy and sane, so here I am. A new year, a new me, a new blog.

I don’t have any specific goals for this just yet. I like to read other blogs (specifically on personal finance) and they seem to have people actually reading them. I wonder if I’ll have people reading mine eventually.

I’m told all the time how old I seem because I’ve accomplished so much in such a short amount of time. I don’t really see it that way– I see all the things I have yet to accomplish. I don’t understand why people instantly think it’s remarkable, don’t they want to do incredible things with their lives, go on adventures, meet interesting folks? What is life without pushing yourself?

Maybe I really am different from other people. I strive for normalcy in my life, but I don’t know if I’ll ever get it, and if I really even want it. Most times I like being a little different, as long as I’m the leader.

Maybe I’ll write some features on the things I’ve done in my 23 years; that would be a good way to create content and maybe remind me of some of the more interesting things I’ve done.

Hmm, something to think about.

Google AdSense

So I’ve heard a bit about this program from reading other blogs and also through work. It sounds interesting so I thought I’d give it a shot.

Google AdSense is basically a (possible) way for me to make income by allowing Google to place relevant ads on my blog. When people either click on them or even just view them (in some cases) I make a little bit of cash.

I like the sound of this obviously because it’s a chance to make some much-needed money, but also because we use CPC and CPM programs like these in ad campaigns for our clients. I want to see just how effective it is, and I’m curious to find out how much bloggers can potentially make from farming themselves out like this.

I think measuring by CPC is probably the best way for advertisers, because I’m not sure how they would measure the impressions. Maybe there’s a special code or tag embedded in the ads that allow Google to track IP addresses or something. Hmmm.

Man, it’s moments like these when I laugh at my self for being such an ad freak. This guy I once knew called me the Ad Queen sometimes. I’ll have to fill you in on him some other time. The thing is, I’m not so in love with advertising and yet I find myself thinking about it and analyzing campaigns I see on a regular basis. Not good. This clearly means I need a personal life.

Some people write their blogs to document their journeys out of debt, or to becoming a millionaire, but maybe I should write mine with a heavy bent on my journey to becoming social and having relationships. Of any kind. It’s easy to start a pity-party by saying this, but I really don’t have many quality relationships with people, or many relationships at all if I’m being frank. Which I am. So that’s an area I should be working on.

I also need to work on structuring my posts a little bit better! Ahh well, that’s what all this practice is for!

Testing 1,2,3!

The obligatory test post. Hurrah!
