In real life, I always forget to do the introductions. I had a dinner party recently, and I assumed everyone knew each other, until a very loud clearing of throats and “I’m so-and-so, and you are?” from one of my friends reminded me I needed to be hostess and make the rounds.
If you were a visitor to paperhurts.com back in the days when I was still in college and hosting this site on my own, good for you! Josephine, the lovely server Eric and I built in 2001 recently died (RIP) and I have finally given over hosting power to an actual provider, who actually seems to know what they’re doing – more than I did at least. I graduated from the very prestigious all-women’s college I was attending back then, and am now working for The Man & Big Brother.
I’ve been “in the real world” – or, if you also went to Smyff, “out of the bubble” for over three years now, and just recently purchased a condo a few miles from my place of employment. The condo I purchased was the first I looked at, and I probably didn’t even need to do that – one look at the giant living room with hardwood floors in the ad on realtor.com and I knew it was the one I would buy. Maybe one day I’ll write about my adventures in home buying, but not today.
Well, I suppose that’s enough of a “welcome back,” or “welcome the first time” if you’ve just found me. I’m not sure why I’ve finally decided to start blogging again, but it might have something to do with a recent birthday in which I decided I want to remember all the fun and wonderful things I’m doing with my life right now.
