Ahh, the joy of parodies.

One of my first posts on this blog was an embedded video of ok Go's video for "This Too Shall Pass", an inspired one take encompassing many traps and contraptions worked into a machine. It was wonderful. This video is a parody of it, and it's hilarious. I got this link courtesy of a tweet by @knitmeapony over on

I have officially been accepted to be a part of the major blog written by a Twitter friend of mine! I made my Google Adsense account and am beginning to write my blogs for filler so that when it goes live I can be a part of it!

I can't tell you how incredibly excited I am. Now to log onto my Google account, get my code, and send it to Mia!!!

2 posts in one day, OMG!

Okay, so I couldn't let the day pass without posting this video. Mostly because it reminded me of my brother...

Glee, I can hardly contain thee

So I've got this possible opportunity to be a contributor to a blog and I'm extremely excited about it but at the same time I'm apprehensive. I have a deadline for how many contributions I need to give per week and I dictated what I could contribute, so if I struggle with it, it's my own fault. But I'm a little anxious because aside from school papers, I've never had a deadline before. And this is going to be a weekly deadline basically. This will be ongoing, just like someone who has a job in magazines or newspapers.

Which scares the bejeezus out of me because it means this is the next step towards realizing my dream of becoming a writer. I'm full of fears that I won't be good enough, that I won't get enough done on time, that I'll disappoint someone or that I won't have any support. And there's the sneaking suspicion that I'll have to call it off at some point in time because I won't be able to handle the commitment, which is akin to failure to me. I just have to cross my fingers and hope that I can stick to my guns and get this done. I've started preparations to get my filler ready and I've begun research into the areas that I'll be writing about, so I have to trust that this will work out in the end.
