Wow! I'm about to breach the 10,000 visitors mark today (the tally is at 9,997 as I type this)! I remember the first time I reached a milestone and dutifully posted about it for posterity's sake. It seems like such a long time ago. My, how I've grown... :)
I first started blogging around two years ago but the first one was purely private, a venue for all my angsts back then (I have horrible handwriting and I'm a fast typer, so it was inevitable that I would keep an online journal, rather than a written one). I really didn't want to unleash all my emotional crap on the internet so I decided to keep it private but after a while, I found myself relatively free from emotional crap and reasonably conversant in html (meaning I could now post pictures and tweak default templates to my specs) so I ventured forth into the blogging world and the rest, as they say, is history.
At present, a comparison with my first blog (the sister, as I fondly call her)shows that my private blog contains more emotional outbursts and cringe-worthy posts than my public blog, which is admittedly more filtered. I guess I created a public blog because I wanted a piece of the net to call my own (courtesy of blogger.com) and it's always been my big dream to be a published writer (which I technically become everytime I click on "Publish Post"....) and finally, my private blog was becoming too small for me so I decided that the world was just about ready for the Jill. The world needed a piece of the Jill.
So there, this post was brought about by boredom because I cut Credit class today, just woke up from a long nap and there's nothing good on tv.
What is it with this weather? I've just been soooo lazy these past few days! It's been a challenge just to get out of bed and pretend to be a functioning individual. Some friends are going to Banawe for the long weekend and I was invited to go, but my lazy bug prevented me from going, coupled with the two all-important facts that (1)I've already been there and (2)I'm saving up for Christmas and a trip to Batanes in the summer. I'm not scared of meninggococcema. It's not an airborne disease. You can only get infected through close contact so if you don't kiss anybody (or anything involving other body fluids for that matter) and stay away from people who look seriously sick (coughs, colds etc) you're safe. Let's not spread the paranoia please.
On an unrelated topic, I watched "Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason" a few days ago and it was okay. It wasn't as funny as the first one though primariy because Bridget's friends had less screen time here than in the first movie but the fight scene between Daniel Cleaver and Mark Darcy was still there, so it was all good. That was the highlight of the movie IMHO. Question, did Bridget Jones waddle in the first movie? Because she waddled like crazy in the second installment and it was just soooo annoying! The Thailand bit is still there as well as the Madonna and bra scene. Funny :)
O-kay. I have seriously begun rambling now. Gotta go, The Simpsons is on in a few minutes.
