My brother made fun of me for using Comic Sans :(

Maybe if I was this person, I'd care about Helvetica.

In which I do NOT have a hicky, but nobody believes me.

I was having some weird skin problems (see this post)

It was a rash that actually went from my shoulder up onto my neck, but with my work shirt on, you could only see the part on my neck, so it looked like a hicky.

There was no escaping what was about to happen.  And trust me, I tried.

I finally decided that the only reasonable thing to do was just act casual and pretend I didn't even know it was there.  In my brain, I figured that if I acted like it wasn't there, nobody would notice.


But I pretended that it did.  Because fiercely defending the truth would just make me look guilty...

Just one more annoying post about subscribing...

Using the "Follow by Email" thing means you don't pop up on my members, and I still don't know you're there.  I'm going to keep the "Follow by Email" up, but I ask that you also do the google member thing, too.  Just so I can see it.  So you can get your haiku.

Oh, and I'm going to move the "Follow by Email" thing to the bottom, near the other follow-y thing.

Thanks!! :D

Why PE is Broken

Once again, my history with sports comes up.  (See Sports)

I grew up believing I was not athletic.  And if I ever wanted to be in shape, it would have to be through doing things I hate.

Turns out, I have a friend who was in the same boat!

Do you know what comes after that?  BLACK.  THAT'S WHAT COMES AFTER THAT.

You know how many kids she has?  THREE.  THAT'S HOW MANY.

And she was like, "Allie!  Come to karate!"  And I flashed back to some terrible memories of being made fun of during physical activities.


But I try to try new things.  And I'm not good at saying "no".

It ended up being one instance where it was better than the scenario I imagined!

One week later.


I know it's important to take care of our bodies.  But it's hard when you feel like you are literally not good at physical activity.

Am I just doing this because I have to to pass this class?  Is that good enough motivation?
Am I just doing this to be skinnier?  Is that an effective reason?"

Nope, that just makes me feel bad about myself.

I will do something because it makes me happy.  Screw everything else.

I did not live 20 years to fixate on a number.
I will not live 100 years just to fixate on a number.

Subscribing? Following?

It's getting later into the night, but I wanted to figure this out.

So I found this gadget called "Follow by email" where all you do is put in an email and I think it sends you an email when there's a post.

Cuz maybe you don't want to do all this google stuff down where it has the followers.

I don't know if the follow by email thing pops you up by the followers or not.

But I'm sure it counts you somehow...

Maybe I'll figure it out...

Maybe you should comment if you know how this stuff works, cuz I'm going to bed.
