Easier said than done

I am not going to lie, I thought this challenge would be pretty easy... fun even. I was wrong. Most of the time it is frustrating but I am not one to throw in the towel. In the mean time, enjoy these shots of me reluctantly posing. My boyfriend, who is kindly taking most of the shots, said today "Don't you feel like a douche bag posing?" Why yes, yes I do....

There's nothing elementary about this creative challenge...
27 days to go.

Life's a Competition

I am a competitive person. I like to think that everyday meaningless tasks are a competition (everyone else just calls this life).

I really need to get back into elections...

In the mean time I am going to get all girly on you and compete in a wardrobe challenge. The "30 for 30 Remix Challenge." I know, it sounds like something from TRL but bear with me.

Challenge: choose 30 pieces of clothing - 5 shirts, 5 button downs, 5 pairs of pants, 3 skirts 1 dress, 6 sweaters/jackets, and 5 pairs of shoes. For the next 30 days, I can only wear these 30 items (with the exception of jewelry/scarves/belts).

 Let the games begin.

What if Paul Revere had Twitter?

This week we celebrated the Michigan Primary. Okay, I celebrated while the other 10% of the state's population exercised their civic duty. Now if you know me or have read some past blog posts you would know that I love elections. Just about any kind of out I am coming to a high school near you.

Not only was it the Michigan Primary, but the media and the candidates were paying attention to the outcome of Michigan's Primary. I was just giddy all over. I wanted to shout it out that today was the primary, so in common fashion I used Twitter (my love for Twitter falls slightly behind my love of elections).

That's when I thought, "What if Paul Revere had Twitter?" 

That would have revolutionized how he told everyone that the British were coming. He wouldn't have been some kind of hero, he would have simply been some Twitter geek trying to to tweet the news before someone else.  With Twitter there will not be any more Paul Revere moments. Is this a good thing?  Is this a bad thing? I can see arguments for both.

All I know is that on Tuesday, February 28th 2012 Twitter did not convey how I truly felt about that day. Maybe I am in the minority, okay I am in the minority, but gosh I just love a good any election. That's what you got from this post, right?
