And the Reason is You.....

This is definitely not my first blog. I started blogging back in 2002. Back when I was just a little college drop out that needed some money to pay for the education i never finished. (If that made any sense) I somehow landed an accounting position which evolved into me having a crazy Assistant Controller title. Anyway, on days that didn't have enough work to keep me busy 8 hours a day i had to keep myself amused. Was chatting on AiM enough? No. Was playing Literati against MKW enough? No. So somehow I found Xanga and started blogging. I started off slow... just like this blog, I'd forget about it now and then and was updating only about once a month. Then- i got better at my job and did things faster... so i had more free time, so i blogged even more. Eventually i was spilling my heart out on that shit, i talked about everything, i came an expert on talking (typing) to myself. But one day I realized I wasn't talking to myself, (uh hello public blog, hello everyone in the world who has access to the internet) One of my friends, Phanus, was like... oh yeah Hanh what's the name of your site again? And I'm like what?? how the hell did you know about that... anyway, ever since that i was more cautious about what i typed on there... it was never the same again. Still I continued to blog almost daily about less personal stuff, but still stuff that went on in my life... it got so bad, it bothered me when i got too busy at work and couldn't blog. When something funny or cool or sad or anything happened, i thought hey i could blog about this! I thought about blog topics in the shower (but somehow forgot them by the time i got in front of the computer) Man, my blog was like my best friend who didn't give me any good advice that i was going to ignore anyway.

Eventually I switched jobs, got cubemates that i didn't want to blog in front of, and the ultimate horror happened, my job blocked xanga!!!! Seriously, i was semi-dramatically devestated. Blogging and reading other blogs took up a lot of my work day (don't worry i definitely got all my work done!)

What the hell was i talking about? Oh yeah, so anyway, in the end, no more xanga, though i have freaking access to it again, hello blogspot, hello blog during my 9-5... will i be able to pick up the addiction again?? I hope so.. i think typing to myself keeps my conversational skills in tact.

ha!ha! okay the first 6 hours of work i had nothing to do, when it's almost time to go home and i'm ready to blog again? I'm swamped-time to work!

have a good weekend errrbody!

(dayum, i just noticed all my pics were dead, i forgot i totally cancelled my old isp account)

Haha, very similar to my post...sorta, kinda...hmm, guess not. But thinking about blog topics in the shower? I so totally don't do that too (often).

haha i think a lot of us can relate to your entry here. if something out of the ordinary happens in my day, sometimes i catch myself thinking, "Hmm... maybe i'll write about this in my blog later." (and YES, i've thought about topics to write about in the shower too!!!) that's when you know you're addicted to blogging... lol.

but you gotta use your head if you wanna blog from work -- something i don't normally get the urge to do when i'm at my cubicle. too many distractions. too many people walking by.

but if i want to write a personal e-mail, all i do is open up outlook, click "reply" on a random work-related e-mail, delete the name of the person it'll be sent "To" (in case i accidentally hit "send"), and start typing my own e-mail. this way everyone walking by will see the outlook e-mail window open, as opposed to yahoo or gmail, and no one would suspect anything. sneaky, yet effective!

you obviously could do the same with blogging ;P

Hmmm.. Amazing does have a good plan there. i think ill have to use it sometimes just incase i come across a cool topic and dont want to wait til i get home. With me and my short term memory loss theres no time in getting home.. but i hate it that i dont blog anymore, altho i still enjoy reading yours.. heheheh.. oh and on the other hand, i forgot my password and login id to even get onto blogspots.. sad huh..
