An Odd Way to Start

I decided this past weekend to start blogging. I have a lot of friends who live in another state, and it seemed like a good way to let them know what's going on in my life. I feel the need to add that my friends live in another American state. Not a state of mind. That's some of my other friends.

I guess I should also say that I didn't come up with the idea of blogging by myself. I stole Tad Roberts' idea. Sorry! I hope I am more original when it comes to writing it.

I'm sorry if you can't follow what I'm saying. My mind likes to interject a commentary while I'm speaking. It can be interesting, though...if you can understand it.

I guess I will not be original...because I really want to use bullet points. Sorry, Daddy!!

  • My birthday is tomorrow. And I have wasted no time in telling everyone I have seen this week that it is. If any one of those people like to talk as much as I do, everyone in the world should know by now. So I'm expecting birthday cards from a whole lot of people.
  • I have hidden my family's portable DVD player in my room and I am getting a ton of use out of it. First Lost, (the most amazing show ever,) and now The Office. I now have this thing for Dwight. He is undeniably my favorite.
  • My mama is doing an excellent job teaching my American Lit class at co-op. She makes it fun enough to where we don't think of it as homework. I guess it's...funwork??
  • I have a twin. Not an evil twin...as far as anyone knows. She actually doesn't even have my last name. Actually...she's not even related. But she might as well be. At the moment, (and I know this because she just told me,) she is laying on the beach at Rodanthie, NC. My little sister says I am going through "twinitis," which she says is missing your twin when she is at the beach even on days when you would not have gotten to see her anyway.

-I just started...so I'm sure no one will be reading this anytime soon...but when you do...what is (or was) your favorite class in school? Was it because of the teacher? Or the subject?


  1. Emily, I think your new blog is AWESOME. You are funny, intelligent, and interesting. Thanks for all of your help and encouragement for the LIT class. I know I couldn't do it without your help. You are a terrific teenager, and I'm proud to be your mom - MOM

  2. I am so happy you created a blog. I love hearing your "ways" of thinking. You make me laugh and blogging is so fun! You are a smart and witty chick ;)

  3. Glad to see you blogging. It is good to hear from you in any way. Maybe you could find a way to start the first singing blog so we could hear your voice too? By the way, for the science teacher here, believe it or not, my favorite classes were my English and histories, including those Lit classes.
