I have a friend who started her own blog after graduating from Wake about her journey through pastry school in NYC. When I first heard about and read her blog I found it completely entertaining and I loved reading it but I also thought it was a little bit creepy that she was chronicling her daily life in cyberspace for the whole world to see. I also thought it was a little narcissistic. But now that I have my own blog, I see why she did it. It is kind of therapeutic. Though it still may be a little narcissistic, I like being able to write about what’s going on in my life. I like that I can look back on it and remember how stressed I was about that anatomy exam that, in retrospect, was not so bad after all. I also love an excuse to write something that is not being graded. It is kind of liberating. Though I am certain that my blog has maybe three regular readers (all of which are immediate family members), I have kind of gotten into the “blog scene” these days. I have started following other people’s blogs…some of which have authors that I have zero connections to and found perusing friends’ blogs/facebook pages. Creepy? Maybe a little. But I have included some of the blogs I am following these days in the right margin of my blog so that you (whoever you are) can also check them out!
You may be wondering why all of the blogs I am liking these days have to do with cooking, decorating, or other things about which I have little to no talent or knowledge. Well, I dream of being domestic one day. Being able to cook delicious meals with exotic ingredients like my sister and being able to decorate and throw a great party like my fabulous friend Staver (think Samantha from Sex and the City…only more outrageous if that’s possible). So I’m reading up for inspiration! I will be sure to provide photo documentation if I ever attempt such feats on my own!
