mass of contradictions.

Monday, March 5, 2012

* this entry was written on Sunday... I'm experimenting with being that blogger who stockpiles posts in bulk.
I'm coming to you live from a little coffee house on Main Street - The Bean Scene - which is big on charm and quiet nooks, but makes {in my non-latte loving opinion} one disgustingly strong cup of coffee} so I rarely come here.
Let's just say I needed out of the house A.S.A.P. so I packed up my expiring laptop, paid the $2.40 for a teabag & water and found a nice spot by the window.

I feel a bit like Carrie from Sex and the City. I always thought desperately wanted to believe that I was most like her, but in reality I'm most like Charlotte minus the cuteness factor or Miranda minus the butch haircut. Am I right when I say nobody wants to be compared to Miranda? It doesn't make a whole lot of sense considering she's pretty awesome, but it's like the ultimate slap in the face, thanks but no thanks. 
Anyways, I've come to terms with the fact that I'm a giant mass - and mess - of contradictions. It was concept first introduced to me by one of my all-time favourite university profs and it still fits. I love that my 'haters' - who find me annoying yet read all my entries - point out my conflicting points of view. I never said I wasn't crazy and now I'm promising there will be more of these idiosyncrasies.

I know I'm not the only one who writes mental blog posts in the shower and this morning as I was thinking about my 'mama must-haves' list I realized that blogging has become my present day passion. I do however wish that whoever invented with the word "blogger" put a bit more thought into it... it's so ridiculous sounding. And when can I start calling myself a blogger? I mean I own a camera - several actually - but I don't call myself a photographer. These thoughts keep me up at night. I wonder what it would be like to call this my career {like my fellow crazy Jenna Burke from this season's Bachelor... I don't read her blog or anything I just remember laughing over her title "blogger" and her mini-bouts of insanity}. I wonder if I should come up with a different name now that I have 2 kiddos and write about things other than poop and Saige's favourite smoothie flavour. 
If I did, mass of contradictions would be a definite contender. The point of this post is that I'm grateful, so very grateful,  to have found something - other than my family and online shopping - to be passionate about. It's a creative outlet that separates me from motherhood & wifedom and makes me feel like a whole person again.

i don't know that I like the sound of "blogger" either...I don't usually even tell anyone about my blog lol which I think defeats the purpose of trying to actually get people to read it. But to be honest I like the sound of my real job more :)

this was awesome. I know all about the mental posts in the shower. how bout the late-night, quasi-sleeping in bed posts that you "just know" you'll remember in the morning? I love blogging.. but I'm not particularly keen on what seems to be the competitive "who has the most followers / comments" on their blog. i rarely, if ever, receive comments... it used to bother me because I could see the amount of people reading my blog... but now? I don't really mind... I know that every person that reads my blog probably reads at least 30 others... they are just that: readers... they enjoy reading, getting glimpses into other people's lives and learning. I'm guilty of it too. I rarely comment... not because I'm uninterested, or don't like the post...but just because... actually the #1 reason is because I'm mostly reading from my phone and it's a pain in the arse to type out a comment!
either way, i love your blog and your posts... at least the comments you receive are real and thoughtful? not just "I love this" because everyone else does? that was my positive two cents! xoxo

Couldn't have said it better myself. It's nice to have something that I really love doing, even if I don't always have a lot of time for it!

It's kind of sad to me that people wait for you to either contradict yourself or say something that is unpopular so it can be jumped on in a comment...

I need to learn more about your real job and let's come up with a different name for these quirky websites of ours.

Sara K {SaigeWisdom} said...

ahhh yes the pillow posts that you so desperately hope will still be there come morning... haha. I actually made commenting on posts a personal goal of mine because I too generally stalk and leave. You're right though - it should be about quality rather than quantity and the comments I do get totally rock... like the one above. xo

Sara K {SaigeWisdom} said...

I agree... it's a good thing it's usually just family members who think my hobby is silly ;) Speaking of comments, I can't comment on your posts lately {and I want to}!

Sara K {SaigeWisdom} said...

the last 24 hours have been VERY emotional, so your end of the day comment not only made me teary, but is VERY appreciated. *mwah* I feel the same way about rikrak.

Brianne G said...

I'm always told I'm Miranda too, and of course at first you're like, Miranda! but honestly, she's successful and super smart, so I'll take it.

Sara K {SaigeWisdom} said...

I agree, but Carrie is so much cooler.

P.S. - Trev wishes I was more like Samantha... haha
