My thesis statement
I don't know why my brain is hardwired to know the "main point" of something I'm being told or something I'm reading. But it's just the way I am. I HAVE to know... what is your main point?? What are you trying to say? You know how everyone talked about how pointless diagramming sentences was in grade school? Well, I loved it. Strange as it may seem, I love dissecting the different parts of speech and knowing exactly what the main thought of a topic is. That being said, I will attempt to put into words my objectives for starting this blog. First and foremost, I need an outlet. For those who know me well, I tend to stay quiet and bottle things up. I like the idea of an interesting way to release my unimportant, yet ever-busy, rambling thoughts. And if there is anyone out there that cares to listen, well, here you go. Second, I need a hobby. Plain and simple. Hobbies are therapeutic. Hobbies present ways to put yourself into something, give you something to look forward to, and even sometimes make a way for others to get to know you a little more and provide some common ground. So... a blog is created. There is now another tiny piece of another human being on the world wide web. I have no idea what I'm doing, lol. I'm in no way "good" at this. I may put my readers (if any) to sleep. But I will enjoy this newly found part of me and hope that maybe somehow, in some way, I can say something to brighten someone's day, share a smile or two, or inspire an idea. To have a positive effect on someone's life is one of the greatest achievements a person can strive for. Not only that, but I think as Christians it is part of our calling. If I can do anything at all, I want to be a help to someone else. It's who I am professionally as a nurse and it's who I want to be as a wife, mother, and friend. That all being said, I will now quote a member from Philips, Craig and Dean as I begin this new hobby... "Let her rip, tater chip!"
