This Is Not Goodbye

Over the past few months I have been going through this process. I was always saying that I was changing but a friend of mine said to me that people never change, they just become who they have always wanted to be.

And he was right. So, I began doing all of these things. I started working out again, I made the big chop, and I let go of a lot of people.

I find that the more I focus on myself and the more and work on making life better for myself the happier I become.

There is nothing wrong with letting people go when they are the ones trying to hold you back.

So, they had to go.

I'm excited about this fresh start. And with all of this "coming of age" type improvements what better way to really go at it than to finally do what I have been wanting to forever, and that is start a new blog.

So, with a bittersweet feeling in the pit of my stomach I am now done writing on this blog. I have shared with it some of the best and worst, and downright comical times.

I have argued with people through this blog, cried on it, and even lost my temper. And it has all been a helluva ride.

I have fallen in deep like and been dumped on this blog. I met great people and lost great friends.

On this blog I admitted to some of my fears and even confessed some of my secrets.

I thought about deleting it but, I can't... it is a part of me and I will cherish all of the memories that come with this blog. The good, the bad, and the ugly.

Thank you for suggesting I start one, because it did more for me than I thought it would.

So, without further ado, I prepare myself for tomorrow's first entry in my new blog.

Special thanks to @minusthebars who unknowingly helped me to name my next blog.

Welp, here goes nothing.

One Love.

What The Plank???

Hahahaha it's funny.

That was my first thought when I saw the pictures of random people all over planking all over. I even witnessed it first hand and man was it funny.

But I had no idea where it came from. I thought maybe it had come from a movie. Something one of today's comedians had done in a show that was sweeping across the nation.

Thanks to Twitter (because Twitter is so educational, ha!) I saw a link that allowed me to see just what planking really was and where it came from.

Someone tweeted a link, which I wish I still had access to about how planking came from slavery. How planking originated from slaves being stacked one on top of the other.

This took all the fun out laughing at you idiots for planking. So, I proceeded to Google the term "planking."

All I saw was "Planking- Australian lying down game." You all need to see that slavery, our history, is being erased and aspects of it, like planking, no matter how horrible it may be has been classified as a game.

Stacking human beings on top of each other to make room and save money is not a game to me. It's ignorant and as funny as it was before, it's stupid now.

Give it a rest. Find something else to imitate.

And if that doesn't make you want to stop... google this ---> "Man Dies From Planking."
