Losing my "blog" virginity.

I met a really awesome kid at the conference I went to in Toledo. He told me I should keep a journal, like a hundred other people I have met in the past, but this time I decided I would listen. Listening isn't really my style, but in the past I never did it because I hated my handwriting and I would write in bed and it was uncomfortable. Since I'm addicted to my computer anyways, I thought I'd give it a try.

I've never done this, but I've thought about it. Would people like what I wrote, would I let everyone read it, are my thoughts too personal for the web? I feel like I'm giving away my virginity. Obviously I control what I write, but there is nothing keep the outside world out anymore and I like the world to stay out of my life. It's safer that way, like not having sex is safer too. I can't get hurt.

This conference, although full of nerds, (honestly, it was for honors college kids) was incredibly entertaining. I mostly humored myself, but I met some awesome new friends that helped too. I went to the Toledo Art Museum, socialized with the guards, of course. My two friends and I went to the Mud Hens (minor league baseball team in Toledo) and after being told we could not go in by the ticket sales lady, we proceeded to get a personal tour of the entire park by Roger, a friendly usher that happened to walk by us in the gift shop. I am convinced, especially after this weekend, that a smile...or boobs go a long way.
