everything is wonderful

~sometimes I think I am the only person on earth who isn't perpetually in a good mood...at least in the blogging world anyway.

~every single freakin' blog I've read lately it seems that the author is talking about all the wonderful things in their life, how they went shopping and got tons of gorgeous new clothes, or how they have lost tons of weight or simply how happy they are or some other crap to make us 'not-always-so-happy' people feel even crappier. Really? Thanks.

~well, in discussing this with a co-worker, she shared with me that she recently read an article about how people ONLY share the 'good' stuff in their lives on all these social media sites. so i guess that puts me in the minority again, because if you've been reading for any time at all, you KNOW that I share WAY more than the 'good' stuff - more like the total opposite of that. this is definitely a therapeutic/venting blog for me.

~I really have nothing very exciting or blog-worthy to discuss today. i'm back at work and bored once again, but hey, at least I can blog and read blogs, right? see, that's me being 'positive' for a moment. embrace it while you can.

~i'm determined to keep this blog forever. if you haven't been around here for a while, well, this is my 3rd blog 'attempt'...long story but basically the nasty commenters of the world sent me running for the hills and right out of the blogosphere. i think it would be so neat to still have this blog to look at when E is 5 years old, 10 years old or heck even 15 years old. at that point, i'll probably find a lot of good bribery material - like how he wants to nurse forever and ever.

~i'm seeking some part time work for thurs & fri when i'm not working here. this gal really needs an economic boost (although who doesn't these days, right?) i plan to apply @ the new hourly-child care place that opened up in the "rich" part of town-of course, this will only work if I can take E with me. I also found a job posting on Craigslist to be a substitute at a mom's day out program on thursdays - again this will only work if I can take E with me. Let me just say that the ONLY types of part time jobs that will work will either allow me to take E with me or do the work from home - needless to say, my options are severely limited. i also decided (again) to offer Spanish lessons/tutoring and so posted the info on Craigslist. I sure hope SOMEONE replies. please. and hopefully they aren't wackos or ax murderers. believe me, I was hesistant to do this.

~looking forward to thursday & friday this week since they are my only days for 'fun stuff' - thursday is playgroup which will either be @ my house/playground (ack!) or at another friend's if the weather doesn't cooperate. On Friday, I'm meeting a friend for lunch and then hopefully getting my hair cut and highlighted.

~if i'm going to post anything for the rest of the week, i need SOMETHING to write about. please give me some ideas. my life is sooooooooooooooo freakin' boring. even i can barely stand it.

One thing I love about your blog is that you're "real..." you tell it like it is, regardless of your mood. It's authentic, and like you said, even if the rest of us aren't necessarily sharing the shitty stuff going on...it is going on, trust me.

I think you should post on your ideas for the photo contest or give us some sneak peeks! :)

Hope you feel better. Just find one little thing to be happy about. :)

As part of your blog, maybe you could devote a post a week to teaching your readers some Spanish phrases (or perhaps curse words). I know that would come in handy for me.

It's true some people, including me, tend to glaze over the bad stuff. I admire the way you put yourself out there.

Sometimes I want to write about something that I'm upset about but worry about that person finding my blog and getting their feelings hurt. I try to be as honest as possible, but I have from time to time left out a few things I wish I could have included.

As for things to write about...I'm looking for guest bloggers to write about vacation disaster stories, or funny stories in general that I can post on my blog while I'm on vacation 6/20-27...but i don't think that helps you right now.

That's interesting that people would only post the positive things, but it makes sense. I like that your blog is real and addresses real life--nobody can really be that happy all of the time!

KekeLynn said...

My blog hasn't exactly been sunshine and roses either. I know what you mean about the super happy wonderful people lately.

I'd give you some ideas if I had any of my own!! haha

Chele76 said...

oh I am *totally* one of those people. I try not to blog about any of the negative stuff.... but I also don't talk or heck even think about the negative stuff. I guess that's just how my brian operates. I shove it in the back of a drawer and put it under lock and key until it festers and I implode. So life isn't all ducky for all of us. We just like to portray that image for ourselves ;)

I rant sometimes but then I feel bad because I think I'm being unfair. Or mean. Which I can be very often. I started by posting only nice stuff but believe me I can be pretty nasty. My nastiest blog ever was about skinny bitches who wear to much makeup to the gym and then complain they gained 3lbs. My thoughts were wash off the makeup and you'll lose 5lbs. That was on myspace though.

Maybe I should transfer it here, I didn't like myspace or blogging there. I also have a funny one about everyone wanting to be porn stars, don't ask very weird mood.

Kristi said...

I totally admire the fact that you are so real....sometimes I wish I could be!! And WOW, you have 686 followers for this blog!? That is incredible!!! What is your secret to getting so many followers? You should be advertising on here and making some money Krystyn!

Fidgeting Gidget said...

Another thought....I, like you, am afraid of an overabundance of negative comments--so maybe that's why I don't say some of the negative things that I might be thinking. I got my first comment where someone said to me, "I think you were out of line," and I didn't really like that too much. That was the Starbucks rant...haha. But you know what? I felt good after it. We all need an outlet for the negative stuff, and if this is yours, you go girl! I know I'll be around for the next 10 years to keep up with you.

And I agree with the Spanish tutorial idea...I took 5 years of it when I was in High school, but it's slowly fading.

I love your blog. I get that it's a place to vent - and venting's healthy, right? And there are happy moments - like the Mother's day pic with E or the upcoming photo project to celebrate the last few days before class starts again.

I'm slightly concerned that people will think I'm bipolar because I have venting blogs followed by gushing, excited blogs...

At any rate - keep on blogging!

Amy said...

Oh, you totally know that I do not just post the happy stuff. But, I think I may stop with the "my baby died" posts, because nobody really comments on them, so people either don't want to hear it, or don't know what to say so don't say anything, which is kind of the same as not wanting to hear it, I guess. But you are totally right, I've thought that for a long time, people don't write the bad stuff, they make their lives sound so fun all the time. It can't be fun all the time.

Tricia said...

Clearly you've not been reading my blog! LMAO - perpetually happy I am not.

Hmmm ideas for new blog posts? I wish I had some.

msprimadonna67 said...

I really like the idea of throwing out a few spanish words now and then to teach us--maybe a once a week thing based around a theme. I think that might be kind of fun!

M.J. said...

I have to agree, the blog world can be a little too sugary-sweet for my taste. Though I tend to be guilty of only writing about my positive experiences on my blog, because I'd rather spread cheer than rant, bitch or moan...

rxBambi said...

I joking call mine a bitch-blog cuz it seems like I'm always bitching about something. THat's why I try to find things to be happy about...maybe I'll just stick to bitching! :)

Heather said...

first i do not mind hearing your bitching...so feel free not to stop. it makes you feel better i am sure. and well i would also post not so positive things too however i have started to just post about the kids.

Maniacal Mom2 said...

I keep reading the "happy" blogs and wonder if mine is the only "reality" blog or if everyone else really is just happy all the time. I tend to write more when I am low, probably why I don't have as many followers as you! Who wants to read someone's unhappy reality??

Rachel said...

My optimism is just to convince myself that I am happy....

~**Dawn**~ said...

I agree with your co-worker about people just wanting to put on a "good show" as if any of us believes that anyone's life is perfectly happy all the time! I much prefer *real* blogging to those who put on an act.

If you *ever* feel like deleting again, you email me or text me! Immediately! BEFORE you do anything. I am going to remind you of this because I remember how bummed you were when you realized all that recorded personal history was gone. At the very least, just make it "private" til we chat & can at least download a copy of all you've shared before you blow it all up!
