i checked my stats today and whoa, so many new visitors! welcome. thanks to the adorable PQ for linking me! i feel like i need to be funnier and smarter and thinner now. and maybe use proper punctuation.* i also feel like maybe i should give some more "me" information because i tend to skip those parts on profiles.
in a housekeeping sense, there's a reason for the no capitals. it's called the chicago manual of style and i spent many years in college slaving to it. when i started blogging i was still in college and still writing papers and the very last thing i wanted to do was replicate the anal compulsive style of paper writing online. so i gave up capitalizing. call me a rebel.
i have a degree in american history, specifically studying the american civil war. and i'm a bank teller. i never would have thought i could do a job like this and not own a gun, but i like my job and my life most of the time. i spend all day goofing around online and i get paid for it, and i get to play with money. the problem is that i also sit on my arse all day. and for a long time i went home and sat on my arse there too, and then i went to sleep. every day for almost two years.**
so for the last two years i've been neither healthy nor my ideal weight. this january i finally got around to dealing with it and now i'm trying to turn the course of my life. i cook more, i exercise more and i get out of the house more. i no longer think about what other people will think of me if i do this thing or that thing. i'm nowhere near where i want to be emotionally or physically but i'm moving instead of standing still and to me that makes all the difference.
**during which my mom was diagnosed with and was killed by cancer, and also i had to move three times
