a blog!

rite. i set up this site with soo many great ideas and aspirations and dren.
and just look at it. so embarrassing. like the ultimate in nerd-dom
now i got some spare time between exams - (read: my sister is not at home and therefore not hogging the single frelling computer in the house) - my boredom (read: trying to find anything to do besides study for the next four exams) has rekindled my dreams of having an actual blog.
but, after turning on the computer, turning on my music with my winamp that it sooo frelled its not funny, and sitting down with a snack and drink by my side, i have just come to the conclusion that i have no *frelling* idea about what im meant to do.
i mean really. its not like i can look up "blog" in the dictionary. its not like i can go and read the text-type card on the characteristics of the "blog" text type.
so, the solution to any english ext-2 students' writing dilemma - research.
and in the spirit of this great theory "research", i have hacked into my sister's favourites folder and flown around her and her friends' blogs, to see what the "people" are doing on "the street". man.

remarkably, the young people of today can actually write coherently. its di-sturbing how well they elucidate. and i realise something that shifts my perception of the modern world. a blog is simply a better-worded (usually) version of one of those journals everyone was forced to do in kindy. you know the ones that sort of go - On Monday I went to the Zoo to play with the aminals. IT waS fuN. I saW the Lions and Penguins. Then I went hOme.
basically, that is the gist of every single blog that i have seen thus far.

following in the well-trodden footsteps of every ext-2 student that ever was, i will do what it is tradition to do. type up a beautiful summary of the research, reflect on how meaningful the universe is, write a 2 page poem on the state of loneliness and its relationship to the current trend of corporate oppression, and then completely ignore everything i have done and write something totally unrelated.


i love little birdy, dont you?
and that new james cameron imax movie looks really good, even if it is blatant patriotic advertisment for that wonderful US institution - NASA.

i just love evryone sooo much it hurts.

A blog is basically a journal that is available on the web. The activity of updating a blog is "blogging" and someone who keeps a blog is a "blogger." Blogs are typically updated daily using software that allows people with little or no technical background to update and maintain the blog. Postings on a blog are almost always arranged in cronological order with the most recent additions featured most prominantly.

And you said you couldn't look it up.

Anyways, a blog is what you want it to be. You may think you're the epitome or nerdiness for using yours for notes, but you obviously haven't seen Anita's... or Jazzo's... heck, even I've posted notes (only once, though). Where do you think Tara gets her Delian League summaries from? :D
