This is something I have been meaning to do for a year now. One year ago, Michael Jackson passed away (like I am telling you something you didn’t know…) and ever since then I have been meaning to talk about the time that I actually met him. I figured today was a great day to finally do that. First let me say that I was 5 years old at the time and don’t remember the details. Hopefully my sister will comment and fill in the blanks.
My family was in Disneyland in August of 1984. We were riding the monorail and at the Disneyland Hotel stop, we saw Michael Jackson. See…
Yes. Emmanuel Lewis (aka Webster) was with him. That’s all I’m gonna say about that.
I have a love/hate relationship with caffeine. I love it, but I hate what it does to me. Actually that’s not entirely true. I hate that its bad for me. I love that it gives me energy. I usually only drink coffee during the winter months. Its too hot in the summer. Plus, in the summer I need to drink water, so I limit what else I drink. I give up caffeine in the summer. No soda or coffee. In the past, I have given up caffeine for long periods of time. It was tough in the beginning, but I always got past it and was able to manage. But since this summer started, it has been hell trying to give it up. I have had no energy and the heat has really gotten to me. It’s not because I haven’t been sleeping. I usually sleep 12 hours at a time (sometimes longer). I don’t know why I have been so wiped out. Today I got some Starbucks and now I feel really good. I have lots of energy. I would like to think that I am just in a good mood today, but I feel like it must be the caffeine. So, what do I do? Caffeine is not good for me, but it makes me feel good. It really is a dilemma.
So I am testing out the waters here on tumblr. I considered transferring all my old blog posts over, but after much consideration, I vetoed that idea. I like the idea of having something new. A fresh start. I won’t be deleting my old blog, because I have had it for 6 years and so much of my life is there. But I think having a fresh start will reinvigorate me and I will want to post more often. I have frequently blamed twitter and facebook for my lack of blogging (can I still call it blogging if its on tumblr?). But many times have I wanted to say things that I can’t say in 140 characters or just might not seem right on facebook. So having this outlet still seems like a good idea. So, here I am. New and fresh.
