Ma cousine!

My [favorite] cousin Dana has just launched her new blog. It's a dedication and letters to her late mother, my Aunt Patty, sharing everything she wants to tell her. Aunt Patty passed away in November 2007. She was by far my favorite aunt on my dad's side - she was always so much fun to visit, had the best things to talk about. You know when you have to visit your old Auntie Mildred with the blue hair, and your parents and her talk about boring things over stale coffee and completely ignore the kids? It was never like that. She always made me feel like a part of the conversation, always listened to me and responded. Not all of my extended family is like that.

Dana's blog is beautiful, but I warn you - grab a tissue. She takes contributions from others, too. My mom's on there. That one was so hard for me to read.

I miss my dad, my aunt, and my grandparents very much. Out of the entire family, they were the most loving. They still are. I know they're pulling for me/us each and every day.

Ending this sappy post. Her blog is linked on my sidebar, but here it is anyway: Deenuts Dana

Ca me nerve!

Let me first start this [rant] by saying that I love my best friend. She is person that understands me the most (even though there's things she doesn't get) and usually the first and only person I go to with problems.

But have you ever just spent TOO much time with someone, and you just can't bear to be with them another second? That happened today, just like a switch. I got so frustrated. Unfortunately, we were in the car, but only a minute away from being back, so we drove back in silence and went our separate ways. Shortly followed by a text, saying she didn't get why I'm mad. I'm not really mad, just frustrated.

Anyway, this rant is done. New topic.

I reallllllly want to get back into blogging, bad. I want readers and followers and the whole like. I want a theme though, because nobody [yet] cares about what I do on any given day. And some days, I don't have a whole lot to say. So I need a theme. I've mulled over a million different things, but everything seems done! Makeup testing blog, weight loss, recipe trying/tasting, book/movie/music reviews, etc. Everything I've thought of has been done and done well. I even thought of just doing a continuous letter to my dad, but my cousin just launched a blog similar to that - don't want to "copy" off of her, even though it wouldn't be totally similar, but I don't want anything weepy. Idk what to do. I was also thinking of a blog about blogs. I kind of started this blog by posting interesting things I found on the internet. I could continue that, however it seems a little dull. Googling blog ideas is almost redundant.

What about something about online dating? I think it would be weird to blog about building a relationship with someone....but I could try a different angle. Hmm, that's an idea.

I don't know - I'm going to mull it over some more.

If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
My go-to answer for this is France (and it doesn't even matter WHERE in France, haha). I've spent the last 8 years (with many more to come) devoted to learning the language and culture. I want to live there and see it, breathe it, and DO it.

London works too. It's just a great place to be. =P

Je retourne!!

I wanna get back into the blogging game.

I just made a formspring. And kind of embarrassed myself on it already. Oh well. I was all freaking out at first, but you know what, life goes on and if someone doesn't like me, makes fun of me, or whatever - who cares?

Ask me something on formspring! The address is to ask questions/write comments that I can reply to, and you can also see previous questions. It's fun!

I'll work more on some blogging later, I'm currently at work in the tutoring center.
