No, this blog is not my new year's resolution. In case you were wondering. But I do hope to update consistently and share with you my random thoughts, memories, real life anecdotes, photographs, maybe even some creative writing.
Since I've moved across the Pacific Ocean, I've become much more appreciative of blogs as a way to stay updated on my friends' lives and adventures. My sister's blog is my favorite, of course. :) It's what inspired me to create a blog myself. Plus, she said it wasn't fair that I got to know what she was thinking and doing when she didn't get to read stuff by me. And that I should totally start a blog.
So, you're welcome, darling sister (don't be too disappointed it's not a Tumblr). And I hope that you — whether family, friend, acquaintance, or stranger — will also enjoy this blog. I'll try not to bore you to death.
I would have started this sooner except I had a hard time coming up with a name. And as you can see, I've declined to use "brianplimleyisintrinsicallyawesome.blogspot.com" as my url. Thanks for the helpful suggestion though, Brian. I'll be sure to keep that in mind if I decide to start another blog.
Anyway, how I actually decided to name my blog was to compile a (still growing) list of my favorite words and play around with different combinations. A few other favorite words: elusive, linger, resplendent, achingly, clarity. Well, those are the ones with slightly more positive connotations. For some reason these words are also on the list: scorn, treachery, disdain, ruthless, defiant. Some words I choose for the meaning, some for the sound. I'm still collecting words, so if you've got favorites too, be sure to share them!
Thank you so much for reading, and happy new year :)
