I've decided that I could definitely use a little push with my blog here - I've been so busy lately that I haven't had a lot of time to write.... So I am jumping on board with SITS and their Back to Blogging event. Today's prompt is to repost your very first post and then share your thoughts / feelings about it.... So here you go - the first ever post on Mental Garbage.
How to begin? I just bought myself a really cute bronze laptop. I decided that, as a grown-up, I could finally start buying myself the things I have always wanted.
I had originally wanted this super-adorable red one. It was gorgeous and tiny. My darling husband was aggravating ;-) enough to point out to me that I would not be able to do all the things that I wanted to do if I got that one... It didn't have enough memory... It didn't have a big enough hard drive... It cost as much as a laptop that DID have all those things just because it was super-adorable and red. So I listened to him. He did have a point... I want to be able to do photo-editing and the little laptop wouldn't have been able to keep up with what I want to do... He is my voice of reason when my little impulse-buying alarms start going off. It was ridiculously cute though... check it out:
I loved almost everything about it - the pretty shade of red, the pretty Asian-style flowers... Right down to the absolutely enchanting color-matched red keyboard. But I would have had to have an external... EVERYTHING.
So I got a different one. And it's great.
But with it, I decided that it will now give me an easier way to start a blog. All my life I have tried and failed to keep journals/diaries/blogs/etc... I start off strong, but then quickly abandon them. I have so many little notebooks strewn around that are not even half full. It's kinda sad. Especially after reading on "stuffwhitepeoplelike.com" that one of the more recent was notebooks. They specified "moleskine notebooks," but I still feel sufficiently lame. So here I am. Trying once again to start something with full intention of continuing with it.
I guess only time will tell.
So there we go.... I don't think I've really changed much from then... I still love my bronze laptop, still wish I could have that adorable little red one....
I guess my blog is still kind of a baby in some ways... But I have fun writing it and that's really what it's about for me... Mental Garbage doesn't have a theme, it doesn't always have to make sense... It's my way of venting so that I don't explode or my way of sharing what's going on in my life.
I remember how excited I was to get my FIRST follower. And there are days where I will see new ones and get really silly excited still... Thank you to everyone that has been on board - I know I can be kind of a lazy blogger sometimes... I don't think I will ever be a "post every day" kind of blogger. I post when I need to or when I can and I hope you enjoy hanging out here!
