Emily: I want something more tonight. I want some social interaction.

Emily: No, I don't want to blog about how lame I am.

Blogs allow you to brand yourself; it's like making your own magazine, TV show, or line of designer furniture. Thus far I try to make myself look interesting, cool, smart and pretty, also that I do brave things. But really, we all know that I'm grouchy in the mornings, my hair is graying, I am not as slim as the pictures portray taken with a "high eye level" and at a close focus (it just shaves the edge of your body right off the picture plane) and Lissa knows I'm always the last in the water. Perhaps this goes without saying, that blogs are a chance to create an alternate version of your life.
An update from the more true to life version of myself: I am still searching for a job, I have 2 friends that live in Boise which are both out of town right now (aside from family), I have acne sometimes, and I spend a lot of time internally conflicted, yet I am receiving mountains of blessings and goodwill continually showers down on me. Side note (a plea for attention, from you- the reader): someone today at church asked if I had been riding on a motorcycle last week, I felt cool saying "yes, it was me you saw."
