(long exasperated sigh)

For months now I have been trying to come up with some kind of theme pertaining to the issue of what this dang blog is about.
People blog about interesting things that happen to them. But my life isn't very interesting, besides Chris, but that's about to come to an end, and the interesting things don't happen often enough to solely blog about.
People blog photography. I'm not a photographer.
People just post randomly what's on their mind. I don't have time to blog like that. I forget things. And I don't want to try to be all deep and meaningful. Others do it better.
People post updates about their lives. My life is school and work. Basically.
People post meaningful and uplifting quotes. I'm not good at finding those.
People post about fashion. I looooooove clothes but....just no.
People have a blog for one specific theme, like Harry Potter. I'm not an expert on anything really.
People do crafts all the time and post how to do them. Such an awesome idea. But I don't have time.
And some people are REALLY good at getting other people involved on their blogs. Asking questions, contests, that kind of thing. I don't know if I want that.
This blog was created mostly to stay in touch with my friends that went away to college, and my friends that are grotesquely busy so that I can't catch up with them often. Pretty much all but one (go Lindsey!) have abandoned their blogs. Quite depressing.
But now I don't know what I want.
From this little blog.
SO, among all these ultra random things I'm always posting, I am going crazy wondering what the heck I'm even doing. I needed something CONSTANT!!
I've got a plan.

For starters, I'm totally doing this thing Megan Abel is doing. I've seen a couple calendar things like this and wanted to do one for a while. Here we go!

Day 01 – Introduce yourself with pictures and words
Day 02 – Your first love

Day 03 – Your parents

Day 04 – What you ate today 

Day 05 – Your definition of love

Day 06 – Your day
Day 07 – Your best friend

Day 08 – A moment

Day 09 – Your beliefs
Day 10 – What you wore today 

Day 11 – Your siblings

Day 12 – What’s in your bag

Day 13 – This week
Day 14 – What you wore today
Day 15 – Your dreams
Day 16 – Your first kiss
Day 17 – Your favorite memory

Day 18 – Your favorite birthday
Day 19 – Something you regret

Day 20 – This month

Day 21 – Another moment

Day 22 – Something that upsets you
Day 23 – Something that makes you feel better

Day 24 – Something that makes you cry
Day 25 – A first
Day 26 – Your fears
Day 27 – Your favorite place

Day 28 – Something that you miss

Day 29 – Your aspirations

Day 30 – One last moment

And THEN, I'm going to try to take a picture every day of the year about something I saw, heard, smelled, tasted, or touched that day. Just something. And post it. My precious blog needs nurturing. Just as you wouldn't skip feeding your kitty kat one day, my blog doesn't deserve abandonment.
Or maybe after Chris leaves!
We'll see. But soon.

Oh and I decided on one actual New Year's Resolution that I am absolutely positively doing: keep a journal. I've been a failure at this all my life. That's gonna change kids. That's gonna change.

Happy Chris's Farewell Eve!
