Oh man is it cold outside, or what? Two days ago it was seventy degrees here in Kansas City then WHAM-BAM-BLAMO it’s snowing and frozen and hurting my face.
Though my blog postings have been rather scarce, my Nerdings have not! I recently got back into Guild Wars 2, but I have been cheating on it with the good old Lord of the Rings Online. What can I say…I just love that stupid game even though it makes me crazy at times.
My most recent LOTRO endeavor has been to get a new kinship going. Don’t know what I am talking about? Ok: In the game you can join a sort of group, see when other members are online, talk to them in a special chat, share a house and stuff, and whatever. Basically, I want to make my little club cool and awesome and fun! I even set up a website for it: this. It is moving along rather slowly, but I don’t want to fail–even at this thing that has no impact on reality at all. Silly me.
In addition to Lotro Club Endeavors, I have been going at school like a mad person. This final semester comes with a lot of reading and a looming mountain of projects that scare me. Job applications have been flying out the window, and I even got a couple of nice little rejection e-mails. Shockingly, it isn’t even disheartening yet! It’s still so early in the year that the rejections have not sent me into a frenzied panic yet, but time for that still remains.
In other news, my friend Monica nominated me for the Liebster Blog Award! I have never experienced anything like this in my blog experiences, so I thought I had better roll with it! Check out Monica’s lovely blog here: Monica’s Lovely Blog. And now I do what Monica told me to do:
Thank you Monica for reading my blog despite my sketchy consistency. Well, despite my LACK of consistency. Also thank you for being an awesome woman interested in nerd things. I remember all the crazy/fun times we had working together at Hallmark and remember how impressed I was at your husband’s video game collection. Nerd. Cred.
Next, I shall answer some questions!
1) How did you get started with your blog?
Well, I had another blog that I used as a place to vent, but it became nothingness and angst, so I decided to grow into a themed blog with less angst and crying.
2) What is the most challenging part of having a blog?
For me, as you readers know, it is being consistent! When I first made the transition to this blog, I was going on a two-post-a-week-schedule, but that quickly degraded into whenever-something-hits-me-posting-schedule which eventually led to textual silence. Oye.
3) Ten years from now, what do you see your life looking like?
In ten years I will almost be 34 years old! I will NOT have any cats or doilies. I will have a family going (by the time I am 34 the biological clock will be ticking, who am I kidding?) with a technical writing career racking up impressive-ness on my resume! I better still be playing a game of some sort…but we will see about that.
4) If money were no issue, what is the one thing you’d like to do most?
I would reallllly like to pay off all my student loans! I know that sounds pretty lame, but I don’t like the prospect of cowering under a mountain of debt when college runs out in May. So, I would be debt free!
5) What is one of your favorite quotes?
Well, this fits into my LOTRO nerdiness. This is a line spoken by Frodo at the end of The Return of the King. It’s a voice over, and it’s just brilliant, and if I cried during movies, this would get me every time:
“My dear Sam. You cannot always be torn in two. You have to be one and whole for many years. You have so much to enjoy and to be and to do. Because Sam, your part in the journey goes on.”
AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH <3 <3 <3
I was supposed to nominate five new blogs for the award, but I have been so far out of the blogosphere that most of my favorites have suddenly come up as deleted! So sad. Instead, I am skipping to the part where I post a photo of the Liebster Award and move on. Please check out Monica’s blog and get that girl some traffic (cause it feels really really nice) and some new followers!
p.s. That quote made me feel the end of the movie/story sadness/happiness. How am I going to get through my day?!!?!?!
