This is a very special blog entry because it is my 100th blog entry on wordpress. Yeah, I know. I can hardly believe it either. I know I resolved to be a better blogger for 2011 at the beginning of the year and ended up failing really hard after the summer, but I am proud of myself to continuing to stick with it. After all, 15 meaningful entries are better than 365 daily rants. I could do that, but I just spared myself and the world a lot of pain.
100. The meaning of this number has changed so much throughout my life. I remember in elementary school when we would celebrate the “100th day of school” by bring 100 of random items. I remember that students would always bring a box of cereal and assume it to be 100 pieces of cereal and then teachers would have to teach the lesson of “100 isn’t as big of a number as you think it is and there are many more pieces of cereal in that box you brought and now you have to count out 100 individual pieces to work correctly with our class.” I wasn’t ever one of those kids, fortunately.
So what have I learned after 100 blog entries? It’s been about a year and a half since I first started this blog. I’ve learned that I enjoy the freedom it gives me to ramble my heart out and not worry about deadlines or other stressful things. It’s an excellent de-stress tool. I’ve also learned that it is sometimes difficult to come up with a topic I’m able to write 200-500 words on, but at the same time, sometimes I come up with several and have a hard task of deciding which one I want to wholeheartedly pursue for that day. This entry, for example, met that situation. My other topic choice for this was “nicknames and their full effects on my life.” But I chose to blog about what this entry meant. I may blog about nicknames in the future, we’ll see.
To conclude this entry, I think I just want to say that I’m proud of myself for sticking with it this long and can’t wait to continue onto another 100 entries and further past that. Thanks to those who read my crazy, jumbled thoughts. If you’ve made it this far, I commend you!
