Hello There

Hey, Jacquie Here!

Okay, so yes... I'm starting my own blog.


Now I know what you're thinking... 'SO lame.. another one of those blogs that someone started so she could talk about herself and her opinions and make other people think she is cool'. Just so we can be at an understanding, this is not one of those blogs. Oh no. In fact, I've been debating whether or not to start this blog for months on end. Because I was one of those people once. I would find some girl's blog and think, 'Seriously? How pointless. Why do you feel the need to post endless blog postings all about yourself just so random people can read it?'. But then I came across some pretty awesome blogs of people I admire. And I started "following" them faithfully. And fell in love with their ways of thinking. And then I realized something... I think a lot. And I love to write. AND - I feel like I have somethings to say to the world (okay, maybe not the world, but to people who care to hear about said thoughts). So, combining those three things, I brought yet another blog into this world. But before that happened, I had a several-month-long battle with myself that went a little something like this:

Me: I just thought of a cool thing in my head and should write that down where people can read it!

Myself: Start a blog! You are a pretty decent writer....?

Me: Um.. NO! K, seriously, so many people have blogs where they ramble about themselves and that is lame. Not doing it.

Myself: But this doesn't have to be that kind of blog...

Me: Well, people will think it is. Blogs are for people who have an amazing life story.. Or who are married. Not single college kids.

Myself: Come on...

Me: Maybe I will just start one and not tell anyone about it.....?

Myself: Or you could just make one and tell a few people..

Me: Hm... I think I'll wait. Till I am married.

Myself: No, just start one already. You know you want to.

Me: (A few weeks later to present day) Okay. Fine.

So here we sit, Me and Myself... Finally on the same page, and starting a blog.

Now, I know this is getting pretty lengthy, but let me just add that I still am not entirely sure what kind of blog this is going to be. And I know for a fact that there will be times when I am just an awesome blogger on a blogathon, and other times when I won't write for a long period of time. It just means I have nothing to say. Or no time to say it. One or the other. Anyway, that having been said, I hope one of these days you find something you like here. And I hope that I will be able to touch you in some way. Or make you smile. Or make you laugh. Or get you thinking about something you've never really thought of before. THAT is what this is about. Not about what I wore today or about how much I wish I didn't have to study for that mid-term. So, here we go.

That is all. Thank you for being here today!
