The Day After

I am writing this from my cellphone because my Internet is down from the storms yesterday. I got up at 4:15 and went down to my friend's apartment because the sirens were going off and Lion alert, which is my school's warning system that sends out weather and school information started texting everyone.

We ended up just having with trees downs and heavy rain and winds. We were really lucky. Most of the people I know in Huntsville, where I am from are without power. I know they told one of my friend who lives in Harvest that they could be without power for up to 3 days. They are also on a curfew that is being enforced right now.

We should all pray for all the people who lost their homes & know people who lost their lives. It is going to take a while for things to get back to normal.

Here we go.......

I have been thinking about writing a blog for a while now. Everyone who knows me knows that I feel that the Internet is going to be the death of traditional media and I am somewhat bitter about it. Case in point, the last typewriter in the world closing. Print is becoming nonexistent which is really sad. Back on the subject at hand though which is me deciding to start this blog.  I decided to give in and jump on the blogging bandwagon because I have to accept that everything is online now. I mean when people who are years older than me can accept this fact of life, I finally realized I needed to accept it too.  So, I have been reading a few blogs for a while and I decided why not give it a go.

I should tell you about myself. Two things that is evident is that first off I am extremely random. All my friends know they can count on me for knowing the most random things. I sometime think I should go on jeopardy because of all the ridiculous things I know.  Second, I usually go off track with my thoughts. I can literally have 5 conversations at a time and no one else will know what is going on or what I am talking about but me.

There is not really that much to tell. I was grew up in the Heart of Dixie. I went to college and joined a sorority. Many of my best friends were in the same sorority. I still live in the town that I went to college in. Two degrees and almost 10 years later here I am. I will pretty much be writing about anything and everything. This includes how I chose the name of my blog, which I should thank my old roommate/one of my best friends for.
