I have a healthy appreciation for the study of (bad) human behavior.
This is a compilation of observations of a lifetime of observing barn animals disguised as humans. Also, frank and sometimes humiliating observations on the work in progress that is my life.
I’ve decided to make the leap into domain-ing myself. Which kind of means I’ll be making my blog public and available to the world which I really haven’t been doing. I saw one of those corny stylized quotes recently that people make into wall “art” that said: “If you always do what you did, you will always get what you got.”
Corny as shit but came at the right time for me. What am I doing with this blog if I’m only sharing it with a select number of people on my Facebook page? It’s not going to take me anywhere if I just let it sit here, stagnant. Not to say that Tumblr isn’t a great platform. It does all the work for me and was a great introductory tool. Having my own site, that I have to pay for will incentivize me to do the one thing I’ve never really done with this blog: share.
If you’re a regular reader (hi you two! or three!), you know that I talk a lot of shit on here-mostly calling it as I see it type stuff-so you can understand why I’d have some reservations about publicizing my pseudo rants, particularly the ones about work. You know, things that could get me fired. It’s not like I’m calling anyone out by name, listing where I work or even my full name (or part of my name), but in a digital age where everything can be tied back to you, it’s kind of worrisome. I don’t write these things as a disrespect to anyone and I really don’t think I should have to defend myself against things that I say that are true.
Good thing I have no reservations about getting fired I guess.
Also there still really isn’t too much focus on what I write about-every blog has a niche and doesn’t just read like someone’s personal journal. I’m going to try and stick to what I know. Crazy people. Unprofessional people. Tacky people. Things that annoy me (hint: EVERYTHING). And write about them. I was a sociology major in college so I guess in some way, my blog is a reflection of my rich educational history.
Anyway, thanks to everyone (you two or three) who has been reading, enthusiastically or out of pity. I hope I can continue to make you laugh (or cry, from laughing I hope), help you relate and let myself be a reminder to you that it could always be worse.
Warning: this post is STUPID with memes from The Hills. Because it is dedicated to my best friend. And we still continue to be friends even though The Hills is her favorite show.
So remember that supersecret Pinterest project I set up with this post a couple months ago? No? Where have YOU been?
Kidding. But really, I mentioned a project I was working on but had to wait to share because there were a lot of moving parts and I didn’t want any spoiler alerts on the receiving end of the project.
Do people ever approach you at the market and alert you of current deals? And by people I mean strangers who are not store employees? No? Well this is why I write this blog and you don’t. I get approached pretty frequently by complete strangers who want to share their coupon findings, intimate details of their life, ask me deeply personal questions, talk to me about extraterrestrials or try and guess my ethnicity. I usually just let them stick their foot in their mouth with that last one and walk away casually.
