Scrapbooks, photography, knitting, crocheting, reading, blogs, magazine subscriptions, newspaper articles, Tweets, Plurks, Facebook. If you're looking at this list and thinking, "What about [fill in the blank]?" then you are probably just as overwhelmed and addicted to the technology and social networking that we've grown so accustomed to. I have a love hate relationship with all things technology. I love all the things it brings closer, but I hate that I feel like I have to check and be a part of almost every social networking site I can find. However, I love being a part of every social networking site I can find. If it peaks my interest I'm going to check it out.
As you can tell my blog doesn't have much to read. I thought I would become a blogger and ended up never making the time to do it because it required me to sit at my desk. Now I've got a new MacBook Air and an iPhone that I can blog from. Therefore, no more excuses and should have plenty of time to blog. Just another thing to keep up with. Right. That's what I said.
The thing is I have this obnoxious need to talk to folks, but most of the time I don't have anything interesting to say to people that aren't interested in what I'm interested in. I have a lot of interests and find more connections online than I do in person. So now I'm going to add one more thing to my list and do my best to keep up with all of it. I will not beat myself up if I don't finish that knitting project before Christmas, finish the scrapbooks before her next birthday, watch the news or read that magazine. I will do what I can in the time I have and enjoy life as much as I can. I'm going to make an attempt to shut out the SHOULDS. Wish me luck.
