01 So Much to Say by ChelseaIRL
first thing’s first. because making lists for projects and making twitter accounts is what i do best, i have done two things today. 1) i have made a list of those participating in BEDA. if you are not on the list (and you’re participating, of course) then let me know so i can add you! 🙂 2) as you may or may not have noticed, we have moved house*, blog. same old blog, different address at the top. i have also changed my screen name. i am no longer coolhandjohnny, but am now ChelseaIRL. which means, even online, i am still IRL. paradoxical, and somehow accurate, seeing how the internet has taken over my life. that doesn’t sound right. “take over” implies hostility. there was no hostility. i welcome and nurture my internet addiction.
oh yeah! and i guess it isn’t quite the “same old blog” either. it looks a bit different. although it looked like this shortly before the move, but you didn’t get to see it. sorry for the shock. also, sorry for the next shock in advance. this change is (hopefully, though not for certain due to my procrastination) temporary. i plan to make it a little more me and a little less i got this out of the blog template box.
some of you may have seen my tweet about how i was going to blog about how much i hate my work computer. well, as promised, we’ve arrived at that part of the blog. there is a special place in hell for the computer i use at my place of work. and since i don’t even believe in hell, that’s saying a lot. it is the SLOWEST thing ever. the only thing more annoying than trying to surf online with the thing (especially with multiple tabs) is trying to actually do my work. it takes FOREVER for any of the programs to initially open. and it usually takes a while to switch between programs. and since switching between programs is almost all i do (Word-Excel-AdobeAcrobat-Excel-Acrobat-Excel-Word-etc.) it is VERY annoying. one day i should vlog it simply so you can fully appreciate the extent of my frustrations. seriously, i loathe that computer.
so i’m still dieting more or less. i eat actual solid food now, but i stay away from carbs like the plague. my slimmer thighs, hips and waistline thank me for it. i’m sorry for not bringing on the full-blast disclosure, but i just felt like it needed to be this thing that no one had their judgement or opinion on. just something i was doing for me. so i still have next to no sugar and very, very little carbs. so i mostly eat meat and vegetables. i still have a shake for breakfast and for lunch during the week. but on the weekends i just eat whenever i get hungry. which usually goes: i should eat breakfast but i’m not hungry – don’t eat – not hungry – don’t eat – not hungry – don’t eat – not hungry – randomly freaking starving!!! rush to the kitchen for some leftover something (within the bounds of my diet, of course) – don’t eat – not hungry – a little hungry, but i can’t be bothered – etc. etc. – dinner. if i could eat like that every day, you would know how i ate all through high school and college and know why i was skinny! also, i walked around more (ya know, classes and such).
something i notice about blogging, especially being the old veteran to BEDA i am now, is blog snobbery. don’t worry, i’m fairly certain that the one i was snobbish about won’t read this, so if you are in fact reading this, you can rest assured i’m not talking about you. <– that's what we call a disclaimer. so anyway, i was reading someone's first BEDA, and i looked at the design and thought "seriously?" i mean, just looking at it REALLY did put me off wanting to read it. but i did. and honestly it wasn't a bad blog. but it's design just hurt my feelings and i did not want to read it. my brain was literally coming up with other things to do while i was reading. very bad. side note, while we're on the ranty part of the blog, i am REALLY sick of the "love" tweets i've been seeing lately. you're going out with someone. it's great. and i'm happy for you. but for god's sake do i really need to hear about it no less than three times a day? once every few days, sure. but multiple times a day? seriously??? ugh! so that concludes our blogging adventure for today. unless you're gonna read the footnotes. i mean, you can skip them if you want. they're only footnotes. supplements, if you will. it won't take away from the blog if you don't read them. and really, there's only one today, so it won't be a big deal. so this is probably the end for you, in which case, i bid you goodnight. even if it's morning or mid-afternoon. no matter what time you're reading this, night will eventually come, and i wish you a good one. i'll see the rest of you in the footnotes.**
*they say “moved house” in the UK. it always makes me giggle.
**if you’re reading the footnotes, you’re probably the type to have noticed that i said there was only one footnote, but that there are actually two. well that’s because this one’s just for you! thank you for taking the time to read my footnotes. i really do appreciate it! you’re so much more awesome than those losers who checked out after the last paragraph. posers. you’re my real friends. <3
