Some Blabbery.

I like to blog for fun. I like to write about whatever nonsense is floating around in my mind. And then maybe year's later I can look back and think wow I was brilliant! Kidding!

No but really. I like writing freely. Its nice.

I like making interweb friends along the way too! I must admit I am terrible at leaving comments but it doesn't mean I don't stop by to lurk and read. I've gotten to peer into peoples lives in cities I probably will never visit. Thats the neatness about blogging.

I could careless about having a bazillion followers or just one. Quality over quantity my friends.

The first time I saw my followers fluctuate I was a little offended. I thought, "Who dare leave my blog! How rude! Why did you come in the first place?!?" But then I thought really? Who cares. If they don't like it here well I am not going to beg them to stay. I followed this one person whose blog I liked and saw that they followed mine in return. I was flattered because I didn't ask for them to be a follower and I thought cool they like my blog too! And then that person unfollowed me briefly after. And then I unfollowed them for being a phony follower! Isn't that just the dumbest thing you've ever heard?

I don't know why it makes me laugh. I guess that person pulled the ol' "PSYCH!" game on me and I played it right back. Brilliance! See years from now thats the kind of crap I will read and remember what an idiot I was and maybe am? In the future?

I am yammering on here so lets change the subject...

So I gained two pounds during Christmas break. Ugh. Something about being back home just makes a girl pig out. I ate like it was thanksgiving everyday. Honestly, I must have good genetics to only gain two pounds over three weeks because I ate like I was going to die the next day everyday. I mean it was just ridiculous.

So I am back in my natural habitat (aka the San Francisco bay area) and I have been exercising 5x a week. I just drag my lazy  butt to the apartment complex gym whether its freezing, windy, or raining. I love that feeling of jumping back into a work out and feeling yourself build more endurance. Today I jogged 20 minutes straight! No stopping. (Okay I stopped for 30 seconds because my shoe lace unraveled but otherwise I wouldn't have)

Also I have a question for the mothers out there. What age were you when you were decided to enter mommyville? When you felt ready? I am 23-years-old and still think kids suck and that babies stink like doo doo.

Will I ever have maternal instincts?


  1. LMAO! I had to delurk for this one. I was 32 and I still don't feel ready. (I have a 3.5 yo) You have PLENTY of time before worrying about mommyville. Enjoy your 20's & live it up before worrying about wanting children. I was the same way but when you do have kids the maternal instinct just kind of kicks in. Trust me.

  2. I blog for the same reason :)

    I've been so lazy over the Christmas period. I really need to get back into doing things.
    It's just so hard to get motivated!

  3. I was OLD when I finally thought "I might be ready to be a mama" and had I waited to feel I AM SOOO READY :) I think Id still be childless.

    (I was 36)

    Motherhood is fantastic and, for me, Im so glad I waited as I was too selfish before.

  4. I can completely relate to your feelings about kids. I'll be 25 this year and feel the exact same way. Although I have friends my age who are (almost) dying for kids. I cringe at the idea of birthing a baby or having that commitment of life revolving around a child. I assume one day a switch will click in me...but maybe not? It's hard for me to imagine travelling and living life to the fullest with a kid. That said...I'm still only 25!

  5. I was 25 and NOT ready. My son was a happy accident, and single parenthood not what I expected, though I wouldn't change the dysfunction for anything in the world...although if I could castrate and auction off his father's genitals I would.


  6. Hi! I love your blog. And, surprise surprise, I blog for the same reason. It's my journal. And I'm just starting to comment more and wouldn't mind a few more followers. ;)

    I'm 34 and a mommy of a 3 year old and a 1.5 year old. Still hoping for one more one of these days, when life says it's time.

    I DEFINITELY think you're never really ready, but you'll know when it's time. You can't prepare for kids, but you can be more mentally ready than not, and you should most certainly enjoy your 20's...and even your early 30's...and feel NO PRESSURE!

    You'll know when you're ready. Good luck to you!

  7. I agree with you - I blog because I enjoy it. It has been freeing for me. I actually have two. One my personal ramblings of life and the other is more upbeat with fun goals and events in my life.
    I do it for me but of course everyone wants followers too.
    I have been following your blog for a while and I enjoy your is fun.

    As for the kids thing; I am still torn.
    Some days I think I want kids but I am not sure if it is a biological clock thing (I am now 32) or that a lot of my friends have them. I also feel like they would jam me up right now. I still have a lot of things I want to experience.

    Never know what will happen ot you in life.

  8. Ah...blogs..they're a wonder! I love blogging for me...whether you like what's said or not...

    I'm 23 and expecting my first. It was quite a surprise and I am certainly not ready by any means...but the closer it gets, the more excited I get...I'm just going with the flow...I think that's all life is...

  9. freeflow writing is the bestest thing EVER. to others it may seem like rambles but to me, it makes perfect sense hehe. and good for you for exercising so religiously. work has been crazy and i've only been able to exercise once a week. must have more self discipline!!

  10. I was 24 when my first was born.. I said I would try anything once.. then I got suprised after that. There is something about your own child. Maybe a little connection or the reality that you are biologically connected and legally responsible so no one else is going to deal with their attitudes, crying, fighting etc.... so they are yours forever....
    also I had a miscarriage a few months ago at 36 years ago... no matter what age you are no ready for the lil buggers....
    lol I would appreciate it if you checked out my blog... real life of life with kids as a single mom taunting the idea of dating.....
    I truly love my two boys and sometimes I almost come to tears at night when I tuck them in bed! WHICH I WILL ALWAYS DO!!!
