Alright, so I caved.

So, I mentioned in my last post that I have been wanting to blog more. Not because I want to become "a blogger" (you know what I'm talking about) but just because...well...a few reasons:
Summer finals are over, and I've got two plus weeks until next semester starts. Plus, I need something to distract me so I don't distract Bryce while he's studying for the LSAT. Seriously, I will have the "youngest child" syndrome forever (give me attention NOWWWWW)...although I don't think I'm THAT bad, just sometimes.
Anyway, it'll give me something to do, something to think about, blah blah. I talked with Abby today, and we did some brainstorming (30-day crafts, cookies, pictures...etc.) but nothing is really striking my fancy. I think I need to start with just text. Cookies next month?
I guess I should explain better. I google searched 30-day blog challenges. Most of them are "30 things about ME" which I'm not all too attracted to. I found this list on a random blog,

Day 01: Something you're looking forward to this year.
Day 02: Something you regret not having done last year.
Day 03: Something with which you struggle.
Day 04: Something that is part of your routine that you enjoy.
Day 05: Something in life that gives you balance.
Day 06: Something that excites you and fills you with joy.
Day 07: Vacation Hiatus
Day 08: Vacation Hiatus
Day 09: Vacation Hiatus
Day 10: Something at which you've been a champion or the best.
Day 11: Something about which people seem to compliment you.
Day 12: Something you hope to change about yourself and why.
Day 13: Discuss some of the things on your bucket list.
Day 14: Someone who has made your life worth living.
Day 15: A band/musical artist whose music impacted your life.
Day 16: A book you’ve read that changed your views on something.
Day 17: Someone with whom you shared a friendship/relationship that simply drifted out of your life.
Day 18: Someone you met randomly that's made an impact on your life.
Day 19: Something that shook your belief system to its core (a big disappointment in your life).
Day 20: Discuss your favorite movie and why it's so special to you.
Day 21: Write about your best friend (not significant other) and what makes them special.
Day 22: Describe a dark/turbulent moment in your life.
Day 23: Describe a truly spiritual moment in your life.
Day 24: Discuss a spontaneous moment in your life that that turned out to be fantastic.
Day 25: Discuss something you planned that ended up not being what you expected.
Day 26: How do you handle/deal with both success and failure?
Day 27: What is your vocation (why are you here on earth)?
Day 28: What is your biggest dream in life (what one great thing do you want to accomplish)?
Day 29: What WAS your biggest dream in life (you wanted to do as a kid but no longer can)?
Day 30: Someone in your family that means so much to you.
Day 31: Epilogue: Write a letter to yourself.

While a lot of these seem pretty "deep" (and are mostly about ME) I am hoping that I won't fall into some transcendental state of mind and try to be all super philosophical and serious in these, because a lot of them could be taken that way. We'll see how things go...and I completely reserve the right to abandon ship or modify ship depending on whatever I happen to be feeling over the next 31 days. I guess this person went on a "vaca" for three days, so I guess those are up to me. Ummmm....okay that's all.

See you tomorrow...when I'll talk about something I'm looking forward to. Oh, how fun.
