I just realized something.

I suck at blogging.

I don't have funny stories to tell you. I don't have beautiful pictures. I don't captivate people with my words (not that I'm aware of, anyway).

So it amazes me that anyone reads my pretty repetitive rambling of living here in this small town.

I hope you know that, even with as much whining as I do on this blog, I'm not this negative in person. I use this blog to vent because writing out my stress helps me release it.

Here's something you might have figured out already: I don't make friends easy. My family thinks I'm obsessed with the computer, and maybe I am. But it's because you all on here are the people who don't judge me, and even if there is someone on here who judges me, I don't care because I don't know you. I don't mean that in a harsh way, but it's pretty freeing.

You wanna know why I don't have pictures on here? Frankly, it's because I'm too forgetful to remember to take my camera anywhere, and if I do remember, I'm too lazy to take pictures and upload them on here.

I realize that I say the same thing pretty much every day, but my life is the same thing pretty much every day. Do I wish that I could change that? Of course. But I don't exactly have a means of transportation, and with my aforementioned problem with making friends, it's a little hard and confusing to do so.

So basically, I just want to say thank you. To all of you. For reading. For caring enough about my small little life to want to check up on me. For all the prayers. For just being willing to read.

And insert a bit of a shameless plug here...If you're reading and don't comment, please do! I love to make new friends, even if most people in real life don't see that.

Okay, now that I've gotten that off my chest, I think I can sleep now.

  6. Hi! I read a lot, but I don't comment very much. I have a collection of health problems too (although I can't say I've ever had brain surgery!) so I can totally relate to your rambling about health complications. I like your blog because it is REAL, it is YOU, and no matter how mundane or dramatic that may be, it is the honest truth and it's refreshing to read!

  7. Mal,

    I've been reading your blog for awhile and I'm not sure if i've commented yet or not, but honestly, I find your blog refreshing. You don't sugar coat things to make your life sound amazing. You are just honest and real and I admire that.
