Bloggie Turns 1

Today is the 1 year anniversary/birthday of my blog. I’m trying to write some sort of deep, meaningful reflective post so bear with me.

I can certainly say that a lot has occurred since that mandatory introduction post I made on this day in 2009, back at Blogger. I took part in my first NaNoWriMo and NaBloPoMo. I won the first, and failed at the second. This year I’m coming back to the same spot, and attempting both challenges again. I feel like I’ve gotten a lot better at blogging regularly in the past couple months so hopefully I’ll win both this year. My plot for NaNo has more direction than last year, I think, when I pretty much pantsed my novel. I wrote what came to me, and generally my plot development had only been premeditated for a day or so max. This year I’ve had my idea brewing for a couple months. I’m a little hazy on my exact plot, but I really know my characters, and the world they live in. Furthermore, I know their emotions better because this year’s novel is based upon real life events. Only, you know, twisted to make them seem way cooler.

A year ago I was free of guy drama. Best Friend hadn’t even started dating Boy yet, and no one even knew that Elf existed.

It’s amazing how quickly relationships can change in such a seemingly short amount of time. A year ago TB and I were well on our way to becoming close friends, while I barely knew BBF. Now? TB and I have only had two short conversations in about 4 and a half months, while BBF and I are the ones that talk daily.

Next year?

I’ll have so much more to report on. New relationships, a new living situation…

Retrospective blog fail. I give up. I can’t be a Hallmark card for any longer.

Happy birthday, Blog. I would have made you a cake but you can’t eat. How about some cookies?

Let Me Be Girly

Thanks to the wonders of Facebook, I found this blog through a post on someone’s wall. 30 Chick Flicks in 30 Days? Did you say Chick Flicks?
I am a semi-closeted romantic. I love chick flicks. I fall asleep at night imagining that my life is more like one than it actually is. In a perfect world, everyone’s life would be a chick flick. You always find Mr. Right at the end, and at the very least you’re well on your way to a happily ever after. Realistic? No. But who needs realism?
I haven’t really checked out the blog much yet, but I’ll go through it soon and post a better review, and a ramble about my personal favorites and what not. Okay? Okay. Okay!

The Countdown Begins

As you may have noticed, I’m getting really into having tickers on the sidebar of my blog. Because I’m a nerd. It started with the days until graduation. This may not be important to you, but it is to me and the new blog.

Then came the blog birthday ticker. I’m determined to actually pay attention to things like that. Not only am I gaining more seniority in the blogging world, but I can honestly say that in the year I’ve been blogging, I’ve come a long way.

Now, looking at the calendar you might protest. This wordpress blog didn’t exist until December 1st. However, the original Uncreative Writing blog started October 31st, and that’s the date I’m adhering to. I’d still be blogging there if Blogger wasn’t a ghetto piece of crap and gave me the blog equivalent of herpes, making it impossible for people to comment on.

Bitch.

Anyways, my blog will be turning 1 soon! I’ll undoubtedly end up doing some sort of year in retrospect type post.
