I’ve done it to myself again – I’ve been suckered into a posting marathon. This time, it’s much more severe than NaBloPoMo, this time, I have subjected myself to an ENTIRE YEAR’S VOW TO POST DAILY. I thought November was a tough month, but I made it through. Besides, I definitely found myself growing as a blogger/writer during that month and I noticed a dramatic decline in my want to post once the weight was off of my shoulders. Needless to say, I do better in life with goals and things to aim for, I work my best under pressure, and this will most assuredly pressure me. And in an attempt to start off 2008 in the not so usual way, I thought this was a slightly insane, and yet markedly brilliant way to break out of my “norm” and try something new. Who the hell knows? Maybe I’ll learn something from all of this. *smile*
Already this year, I have changed my hair cut and color (blog to come, just be patient!) AND I have treated myself to something that I have been wanting for a while. I bought myself an MP3 player. I decided that I was going to require more amusement during my 8 hour flight to Hawai’i than my could-potentially-be talkative neighbor and/or in-flight movie could provide. And when I’m doing yard work, I would enjoy some musical distraction as well. So, through a little word of mouth and a bit of research, I decided upon a Zune by Microsoft. Honestly, it was a piece of fucking cake to get started and the sound quality is fantastic. I really have no basis of comparison, aside from my own experience, but I mean, COME ON! Look at this totally awesome packaging!!
