I had someone visit my blog, which always makes me happy. However, this person wasn't very nice. I think he got up on the wrong side of the bed. Maybe someone peed in his cornflakes that morning. Or, perhaps his tea, as I was looking at his profile and he is British. And 21.
I don't know why I'm letting his comment bother me. Or I even gave it another thought. And I wish I didn't erase it, but I did. He made a comment that went something like "who cares all about this stuff, you need to worry about your president and world peace" or something.
The thing that irritates me is he just doesn't get it. He just doesn't realize that if you focus on the bad things all the time you become this grumpy thing that he has become. It's not that I don't think of those things. I think after 9/11 I decided if I obsess about these things I will die young. You know, the 'ol serenity prayer "God, grant me the serenity to recognize the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference". I had nightmares after 9/11. I know a lot of people did. The last election had me in a tizzy, too. It was ugly.
I watch the news. It upsets me. It frusterates me. It makes me want to punch the TV most days.
Then, there is blogging. What Mr. kid British guy doesn't realize is I blog for FUN. I blog to vent. I blog to relax. I don't blog so the world will hear MY opinion of politics. I realize no one CARES my opinion. No one will change their mind because of my opinion. Now, if only the celebrities in Hollywood would get to the same conclusion.
This brings me to the poll question of the day... Why do you blog?
