Hello world!

Well, I’ll keep the headline WordPress gave this entry, but I just had to change the entry.  This is my first post.  Forgive me if it’s lame – I just decided today was going to be the day I finally start a blog, so I don’t have a particular topic in mind… I’m just rambling.  This is the first time I’ve ever explored the background of a WordPress site (and it would have to be my own!) or tried to write a blog entry so we’ll see how it goes….

So, they say that when you decide to start a blog you should determine what your goals, objectives, point, etc should be.  Mine?  Well, I guess I have a few:

  • Reduce the amount of email confusion I go through on a semi-regular basis.  (WordPress says it’s a valid reason to start a blog, so I’m totally stealing that one.  Plus, it’s true)  Instead of the marathon emails, repeating myself and forgetting who I told what, I can finally be one of those people.  You know.  The ones who blog.  Um. 
  • Keep track of stuff.  I have a pretty bad memory.  So what do I want to keep track of?  The manga I buy (no more wracking my brain trying to remember what manga I’ve bought since the last time I saw someone – now I can say, “oh, why don’t you just check my blog….”) (see?  one of those people), the things I’m reading/watching/listening to, cool sites I’ve seen, things I’ve made… I guess it depends on what I decide to post that day.
  • Learn!  I’ve never had a blog before.  I’d like to learn more about how they work and the ways I can play with them.  Eventually this might actually seep into parts of my job, but I won’t hold my breath on that one.  But!  You never know, someday it might.  Plus, sometimes I just like learning new things.  I read a lot of library blogs and now that I have the internet at home and aren’t restricted to one hour blocks of time for surfing whenever I can get to the internet cafe or library, I’m seeing a lot more variety.  It’s really interesting.  Hopefully with practice my writing will improve, but I guess that’s not a major goal – I don’t really consider myself a writer.  I’m more of a consumer of other people’s work, and that’s okay with me.  Someone has to do it.

There’s other reasons, of course, but I guess that’s enough for now.  And speaking of… I’ve got to go finish watching Gothika and knit.  No, I can’t tell you what I’m knitting – it’s a present, and that would ruin the surprise.  Oh, who am I kidding.  Everyone knows what I’m knitting them for Christmas.  It’s a mitten.

So, for posterity:

What I’m listening to: Seishoujo Ryouiki, which is the opening theme song for Rozen Maiden Traumend.  I like it ’cause it’s kind of mind bending, especially after seeing the animation that goes with it.  That’s it.  I just keep replaying that one song. Sometimes I like to do that…

What I’m reading: Smoke and Shadows and Smoke and Mirrors, both by Tanya Huff.  And I’ve read them both before, which is why I can skip between them now.  Not that I meant to, but I was almost done the first one and didn’t want to bring it with me in the morning since I would have finished it and had to carry two hardcover books around with me all day…

(Damn.  I just went to Amazon to link to those two books and found out that I have to WAIT until June 2006 until the next one (Smoke and Ashes) comes out.  arg.  I hate waiting for stuff.  I’ll also virtually apologize in advance to the staff at Bakka Bookstore, ’cause you KNOW I’ll be bugging them all June until it comes out…)

    Hmmm… mental note to me – font is kinda cramped and hard to read. Try to change that…
