Alex the kitten

Format – Like many before it, this blog entry (post) is all over the place. So, I decided to separate the different topics to increase readability.

Layout – Thanks for all the positive feedback on my layout. I thought most people would see it as too plain.

Synced – Do you ever feel like you’re synced up with people you’ve never met? I do.

iTouch – I am very annoyed by the term: iTouch. Whenever I hear, or read, it I frown a little. In my head I’m thinking, Ugh, no! It’s an iPod Touch… iPod… Touch!. Heh, in my head I’m thinking… Like there’s any other place to think.

Comments – I am no longer approving comments that have nothing to do with the blog entry. Misreading an entry is tacky. But, not reading it at all is just lame.

Sometimes, the irrelevant comment is a random question or statement. But, most of them are a reply to the comment I made on their blog entry.

To be clear, I don’t mind these comments if you also respond to my blog entry.

I know many see blogs as a means of general communication. I do not. If it isn’t about the blog entry, shoot it to one of my contacts.

Alex – There were a LOT of requests to see Alex. I have a huge amount of pictures from the past few months. Here are some I took with my phone.

Aw, man…

So, it hasn’t been a week yet… But, yeah, I’m blogging anyway, lol. I guess I’ll just make sure more than 7 days don’t go by between posts.

As I mercilessly roamed around, I noticed a lot of birthday blog entries. They reminded me of how I didn’t post about my birthday this year. And that, reminded me of other important events I failed to mention. And that, made me sad.

I planned to just lay face down on the bed, and mumble obscenities into my pillow. But, this seems better some how…

  1. I graduated from college with honors — B.S. in Accounting. Almost all my extended family came to see me walk. We haven’t gotten together in a long time, and they chose my graduation to finally do it.
  2. I commenced operation bum-around-and-just-have-fun. Sleeping, Movies, water parks, clubs & bars, parties, shopping, television, chilling…
  3. I celebrated my 22nd birthday (gemini). My boyfriend got me a new iPod Touch; my other one was stolen. We went to a nice restaurant, and partied, partied, partied. Other gifts were cute little things and cards.
  4. I decided to remain 2,500 miles from home, because I am in love. This forced me to decline a high-paying job at a top 10 university. My mom set it up for me; didn’t even have to interview.
  5. I adopted a 3 month old kitten from an animal shelter; named him Alex.
  6. I got a post-grad job. It pays about half as much as the one I passed up.
  7. I set my blog back up.
  8. Currently – Milking my last week of freedom for all it’s worth.
