I made up a new song yesterday, which I will not share on here (but if you ask me in person, I may sing it for you), and have been singing it all day at work. The only problem with that, other than it being horrendously inappropriate, is that when I answer the phone at work, sometimes it's the first thing to pop into my head instead of my normal greeting. I'm pleased to say that so far I haven't said it out loud completely (I did stutter into it once) and I'm hoping I never do, because that's the kind of thing that can offend clients and get me into big trouble. It would be bad, but funny. But bad.
Since I spend a lot of time on the computer, I have seen my fair share of blogs. They are great ways to get insight into other people's lives (in an acceptable stalker-ish way) as well as learn how to make cool things (like DoItYourself projects on Pinterest).
I believe these blogs are helpful and entertaining, but also affect me in another way. Most of the blogs I read are written by married people. This goes without saying that they blog about their married life. A lot. This helps/does not help me for a number of reasons:
How it helps:
- Seeing how other married couples get over fights and problems in their marriages helps me to prepare for my own future marriage.
- When the blog is written by a male, I see into the man's perspective which, again, will help me in the future with understanding my spouse.
- I can read about cool date ideas that have been tried and tested by real humans.
- If they have kids, they talk about what raising them is really like, because all the information I get is usually glamorized by tv, books, and such.
- It get's me excited to be married some day.
How it hinders:
- If they have kids, talking about them usually makes me want to not have them for a really long time because this is the real stuff people, not glamorized.
- It makes me wish I was married, not only for the companionship, but because it seems like I would have a lot more funny things to blog about. (See how much I love this blog? I'm willing to get married so I can make it better).
- It makes me feel young. A lot of people want to feel young, but for me, I'd like to be viewed as at least an adult. I'm officially out of my teens so I should be an adult by now, right:?
- Reading these "married blogs" occasionally give me anxiety attacks, mainly consisting of thinking "I will never get married!" and "I don't think I could ever be a good wife/mother/blogger!!".
- These things are addicting. I find myself getting mad at the blogger when they haven't posted in a long time and if when they do, it's a short, uninteresting post that consists mainly of a Instagram photo of food. Makes my blood boil.
So you see, it's a love/hate relationship. Now here's the pressing question of the week: Will I still be funny when I'm married?
(Am I even funny now??)
