What have I gotten myself into….?

Maintaining a blog is a lot harder than I thought it’d be.

You think it would be simple: set up the account, change the settings so that it doesn’t look so white and boring, and post something.  I did the setting-up-the-account part. The settings part might be a bit more complicated than I thought, but I know I’ll get it eventually. I will not tolerate white and boring.

As for the posting something part… that might be more of a challenge. *frantically bashes head against desk in an effort to think of something*

Well I guess I’ll start with the name.  As you can see, this is bestseller2b’s blog. That’s because I plan on being a bestselling author whether anyone likes it or not. I’m usually not a goal-oriented person, but this is a goal I wholeheartedly embrace and will not back down from. Failure is not an option. I’m meant to be a writer. I know that’s what God wants me to do.I might not be a good writer now but I will be eventually, so look out world, here I come. 🙂

Okay… *continues to bash head against desk*

I guess the next thing to point out is the purpose of this blog. I don’t quite know what that is yet, but I think it might have to do with writing down topics close to my heart.

However I’m sure most of this blog’s posts will come into existence because I’m trying to avoid homework and the millions of other things I’m supposed to do but really don’t want to. I pray I’ll affect lives (or at least give someone food for thought) while I’m not doing what I should be doing.

Like right now. I should be doing geometry. A fan of sines and cosines, I am not.  Or I could be doing Great Books homework. A fan of intensive mind boggling reading I’m not so much of either…

What am I a fan of? Well…. I like movies. Does that count? I know more about movies and actors than most homeschoolers my age. I’ve even met Jim Caviezel in real life. (If you don’t know who Jim Caviezel is, then why the heck are you reading this blog?)

I like reading. Mostly fiction that doesn’t contain big words and demands I keep a dictionary close by. That pretty much disqualifies everything in my GB class. *Sigh*

I like playing piano. A lot. Piano practice would probably be included on the list of things I need to do that I actually like doing.  You can imagine that would be a very short list.

I also like listening to music. All kinds of music. I like about every type of music out there. Rock, classical, jazz, R&B, pop, country, alternative metal… Anything that sounds cool or pretty.  I don’t like screamo.  But screamo isn’t music, so I think I’m safe. 🙂

I like hanging out with friends and talking. (Words of Affirmation and Quality Time are my love languagues. I’ll explain what that is later). I have unlimited text on my cell, so if you ever track me down, I’ll be happy to text you. You should probably get unlimited too though. I tend to talk more than I should.

*Tenderly touches bruise on forehead*

And of course, I like writing. That’s a given, since I want to be a writer. I’m sort of, kind of, working on 3 different stories, though I’m primary focusing on one. Christian fantasy. A genre easier read than written.

And that’s pretty much all I can think of at the moment.  Feel free to read, ignore, or comment on my randomness. 🙂

      Yeah, it was really cool seeing you too. I’m glad you like the post. 🙂 Checked out your blog too and it looks pretty cool. I love the pictures. 😉

      I’m taking GB2 right now. We’re reading Eusebius. He’s actually pretty interesting at the moment, at least compared to others I’ve read. Like Thucydides. Avoid Thucydides at all costs. 🙂 Lol jk.

      It’s awesome that you’re going to join the craziness of Schola. You’ll like Mr. Callihan. 🙂

      Have a great week. 🙂
