Concerned with the seriousness of it all.

I haven't blogged in a few years. I forget that it's a great way to keep a record of my life so here I am, once again, attempting to write about anything worthwhile.

Work- is just that, work. I don't particularly enjoy it but, obviously, I need the money. It's the type of environment where everyone thinks they're in charge and being the newest member of the team, I get assed into all the shit no one wants to do.

Life- I've started seeing a therapist. She's a middle aged white woman who, I thought, wouldn't understand the things I'm struggling with. She's worked out quite well but I'm having a hard time being completely honest. I'm not lying to her, just excluding information. I feel I need to write everything down (that I want to talk about) prior to going in but I don't know how effective that would be.

Family- since attempting to move to Seattle (an explanatory post to come) I've been attached to family like glue. I've especially formed a close bond with my nieces since I fear they will grow up feeling overshadowed by the boys in their lives. They'll thank me later when I've saved them thousands in psychiatric fees.

Friends- if I thought things were different before, it was an understatement. It's true, as we grow up, we tend to lose friends to their own self involved lives. I'm seeing the changes that bring us closer (or drive us further apart) and it's out of anyone's control.

  1. I look forward to reading your posts, Myrna.
    I've kept up my current blog for about 8 years now and even though it is mostly lame I can't imagine not doing it.

  2. Hi, Myrna, I'm Jasen, aka AlienCG. I've been posting things online since 1999 and blogging since 2004 (aliencg.com). I blog to try to convince myself that I'm interesting...it's not working.

    1. Hi Jasen! I suppose I'm blogging for the same reasons but it only seems to reinforce the fact that I'm horribly average/boring. Thanks for reading (I'm still trying to figure out blogspot from my phone but I'll be adding you to my blog list).

  3. Hello Myrna,
    I think you write with great insight and a thoughtful mind. Your words are dripping with introspection, with an eye towards the future but still aware of the past.I hope to read more posts in near future.

  4. Wow! First day, first post and you already have 3 comments. I came over via lablahblahs retweet. And blogs don't need to be worthwhile...at least I hope not cause mine would be a disaster.
