Here goes nothing!

Sooo… After debating it over and over in my head, I’ve finally decided to start a blog. I think I mostly need a place to vent, a place to get out the verbal diarrhea that seems to afflict me but that I have to tamp down in regular social situations. I honestly don’t know if anyone will read this or if anyone really cares, honestly this is more an exercise for myself than for anyone else. My life is what it is, I’m sure there are people out there who can relate to some things I’ve gone through and I’m sure there are people who couldn’t really care less. Lately I’ve become somewhat irritated… No that’s not the right word. Maybe disenchanted, with the way our society has become so entirely self involved and obsessed with the minutia of daily lives. I suppose that my blog intro might be an odd place to bring this up, but again, I am not expecting people to really read this. Facebook and Twitter updates that share with the entire world that you are having leftover enchiladas for dinner seem completely ridiculous to me. I honestly can’t imagine who would give a crap that I’m having leftovers tonight, and it amazes me sometimes that other people post these insignificant pieces of information as if anyone cared. Either we have become so narcissistic that we think that everyone really needs to know about every single little event that happens in our lives or we have become so nosy that we really DO care about what color shoes a person just bought. I don’t know which bothers me more… I am the first to admit that I was guilty of this myself when I was active on MySpace (in my 20’s) and when I first started using Facebook. I am not sure exactly what it was that made me stop, but all of a sudden it just occurred to me that it was likely people didn’t really need to know that I was going to stop on my way home and grab some pizza, and if they did it was because they were the ones I was bringing the pizza to. Maybe it’s a privacy issue. Maybe the idea of sharing that much information with jst about everyone was just weird to me. Since I’m starting a blog, I doubt that is the case although I do believe there is a bit more anonimity(just a bit, this IS the internet after all) here than on Facebook.

At any rate, I figured I would start this blog and if people decide to read it it’s up to them. I’ve been through a lot, and if people out there can relate to some of the things I have dealt with then great, if not, then this will be great therapy for me, right?
