Missing: Natalie's Brain

I'm pretty sure I have become a horrible blogger. I used to write faithfully, everyday. I would come home from class and spew all the details of my day into the interwebs for everyone to love and cherish and absorb because I was just. that. important.

And now, you know, I'm lucky to post three times a month occasionally. I still read blogs. I check in and see what's up with everybody and their awesome blogging lives. Sometimes I will even leave a comment, you know, really step out on that limb.

My problem is that I just don't know what to write about. I mean, there's lots of things I could write about, but then I sit down to write it and spend half the time erasing it all and starting over before I ultimately delete the whole thing.

I have taken to hanging out with boys, working, homework, music, causing problems, watching too much ANTM and running at the gym. I suppose this could give me some great blog fodder. I'm interesting. I'm funny. But my mind really just likes to give me a complete blank whenever I'm about to do something important.

Also, I feel like I don't comprehend anything anymore. Just ask poor Prince Charming. We'll be at Bob's eating a meal, and he is sitting there chattering away about video games and I'll just look at him with this deer in the headlights expression not understanding a word he just said.

It's just like chalk on a nailsboard.

(Stuck that one in there for you Prince-y. Phhbbtt)

I wonder how I get anything done though. Somehow it happens because my homework keeps getting mysteriously turned in... so someone has to be doing it. I've been spending a lot of time at work. Working mostly, and doing homework. Lots of homework.

I created an e-portfolio. I've been busy painting. I've been busy teaching - and today was our last art 100 lab! Tears! I registered for classes. I have only three semesters left! That's a scary thought if there ever was one. I assure you. I can't believe I've come this far. I also can't believe that TheKeeper is starting college in the fall too.

Anyway, this is a mess of a post, but I feel like I have to do something so you don't think I've gone and died on you all.


  1. I've been doing a lot of blog writing and deleting lately as well. I feel yah there. I really do.

  2. PS: Since when did you start hanging out with the boy on a regular basis?

  3. Well, I'm glad you're still alive! And I love the e-portfolio! :)

  4. Cass: I have been hanging out with him on a semi-regular basis for a while. as just friends. which so far has been mostly good. we'll see where it goes from here.

    Valorie: i'm glad you like the portfolio! i'm still a little iffy on it. but it's good for now :)

  5. Thanks for making fun of my jumble of words Natalie. You're a real blessing.


    Anyways, you're supposed to help me with my e-portfolio! Say....Sunday? For REALZ this time? :p

  6. Don't worry Nat - even if you do only post a couple of times a month, we'll still be here to read it.

    School and working can keep you busy - your semester must be almost over or are you doing summer classes too?

  7. Artelios: I'm gonna make you do it this time, instead of trying to do it while you're playing MK :P

    Mel: i have to take a summer course too! but luckily it's just one, and it's a studio class (watercolor painting!) so it should be fun. and it's not all summer long, which will be nice :)
