Here we are, again! This blog of mine is like a friend I’ve had forever. You know, the friend you don’t see or speak to for a year, only keep somewhat updated via social media updates, etc…. Then one day, one of you has the urge to call the other and it’s 3 hours of picking up right where you left off. The amazing conversation full of “ooooh girl” and “wow”. It happens through kids running around, refereeing, lunch and/or dinner prep and it is somehow exactly what you needed in that moment. THAT friend!
Well, I woke up this morning, and I’m making that call. The urge to just talk and get some thoughts out struck me, so here I am, Old Friend. There is SO much we need to catch up on. For one, this entire urge to write was inspired by some conversation with my brother and his wife(YES, GIRL! My goofy little brother is married! I know, right!). My train of thought sometimes is like opening folders on your computer. By the time you’ve unfolded and found the file you were looking for, you are so deep into the file tree you’re trying to figure out how it happened (yes, I’m that old! Remember trying to find a file you saved on a DOS system and typing out the ENTIRE address? UGH!). Follow along, shall we?
So, I’m listening to this podcast my brother and his friends put together. Now, these 3 have the most appropriate name EVER, The Dope Nerdz Podcast. It’s he and his college buddies, sitting around talking about the nerdy ish they talk about, but with a microphone and being forced to place a time limit on it. HILARIOUS at times and totally relatable, especially if you are a nerd, yourself. There’s one episode where they are talking about another podcast they are planning on doing that talks more about social issues, etc and less about “nerd stuff”. That whole thing made me think of a previous post of mine, and if my brother remembered the incident. He did, vaguely, but NOT. I’ll pat myself on the back for shielding that(I did good, because I cannot imagine the therapy sessions that would require to unravel- also, I’m now like, damn…my mom is probably going to read that – oh well!). Then, he asked if he could share it, then my sister-in-law(I know! I have a sister-in-law! trips me out, too!) said she’d read it as well. I said, “you know, I should blog again”, and now here I am, talking to my old friend at 5:30 in the morning before I get ready for work. Girl, LISTEN! When the urge to get it out comes about, you gotta do it!
So yeah, anyway…..I feel the need to blog again. I need a major outlet, especially since so many of my other hobbies aren’t “available” right now. I need a thing that is exclusively mine, and my thoughts are it. Why not share a few?
With that being said, I’ll “call” you later to catch up, upload some pics, etc….Later!
