Cave in


After reading the various blogs of my cousins and their friends, I finally decided to cave in and create my own. I have yet to acquire a digital camera to easily post pictures, however I am in possession of a scanner so maybe I can figure out how to use that. I am the kind of person who does not quickly hop on the bandwagon; I like to take my time and see if it's what I really want to do. For example, I was not too keen on the mP3 player innovation, thinking my CDs and CD player sufficed just fine, but after many months and the growing popularity of the portable music device, I caved in and bought myself an iPod mini (which is one of my favorite electronics now). As you can probably see, this characteristic results in my being a tad behind on many trends (including the fashion arena--my wardrobe derives its style primarily from the suggestions of my Aunt Susan and my mom). After spending many months reading about the happenings of my cousins, combined with the frequent boredom accompanying the job of a bank teller, I created my own.

I love words and "minutiae" is one of my favorites. It is what I frequently think of as the little bits of life that create a person. That is really what these blogs are right? The chronicling of the little bits of our lives that mold who we are, where we're going, why we do what do, how we act is how I apply minutiae to my life.

I lead what many may think is a boring life. I like to stay home and I love spending time with my family. I also love spending time with my friends, but it's not like I do outrageous activites with either group. I have Popsicle Days with my sister Emily and best friend Rachelle (Popsicle Days: random days during the summer when we deliver popsicles to unsuspecting friends and family), I have fun raiding Target with a giftcard, I look forward to watching movies at home and having popcorn for dinner. The things I find fun and enjoyable aren't things like skydiving or travelling all over the world, but seemingly boring activities like card games and movie nights. Oh well, I have fun with what I do. I guess this is the beginning of my minutiae and I honestly don't know how much minutiae will be worthy of blogging, but here it goes . . .

I'm so glad you jumped on the bandwagon. Just one more thing for me to do when I should be doing more productive things... I'm sure I'll love to read about your minutiae... Now you need to talk your mom into starting her own...

Whoa--if I have to speak a foreign language to do this, I'm not so sure I'm qualified to comment! I love your minutiae and being a part of it. (I also love now knowing how to spell the word, "minutiae.")

yippee! Glad you jumped into the blogging world, Charlotte. It's the best way I know of getting to know each other better, so I'm sure I'll know you a whole lot better very soon! I love minutiae of all kinds, and I also love French :). Now maybe we're one step closer to getting your mom on the bandwagon...

Well I'm glad you are finally on one of these. Good job! You'll have to do facebook next, ha! You don't like techno music?! Ok, I guess it's not my favorite either. Peace be unto you.
