The pressure to do an amazing first post is immense!

Hello friendly world!
I've promised for months that I was going to do a blog once I moved so that all my friends could read my random thoughts and stay in touch while having tea at their computer.

Here it is. (Insert crowd screaming here)

I must admit, the pressure is on to write something witty or deeply profound. First impressions count right?
But, wait, I'm writing to my friends...therefore a first impression has already occurred which means you are already aware of my idiosyncrasies and my rather bad habit of rambling on and on about a subject that has no real relevance or contains only partial importance to which you feel strangely drawn into listening yet quietly thinking, "What does this have to do with my life?"
But wait, now I feel I have to sensor myself. If I know that my friends are reading my actual thoughts, it brings up a new dilemma: What if Tammy discovers that I do have loads of time to write to her in Thailand but that I've just opted to be lazy in my correspondence because I...well, I don't really have an excuse.
And what if Hetsie learns that I'm not actually the fierce, intimidating leader I portray on a weekly basis in our financial class?

All valid questions.

But, then, I realize that you all know me for my authenticity and overtly honest manner. So, I conclude, that this is a "safe space" to be myself and comment on what is really going through my mind.

Let's all take a moment and be thankful that I've resolved to go ahead and blog. It make sense since, you know, I just worked for a few minutes to set one up!

OK moment over. Moving on.
Right now, the only thought I have is that I wish youtube carried more episodes of Corner Gas.

I know...deep, isn't it?

I'll keep you posted as to whether or not any deep, witty or spiritual thoughts should drop into my mind.

For the King,
