I’ve been thinking of starting a blog for some time. Scratch that, I’ve had a blog for almost 10 years over on Livejournal. But that thing has been friends-only for some time.
I decided I needed a new space. That’s public, more open, and (quite frankly) a little happier. I want to share thoughts, photography, recipes, etc. all in one place.
I got the name for my blog from my favorite Dismemberment Plan song (and one of my top 5 favorite songs of all time). It’s called Following Through (listen), and the message captures exactly how I feel about life and grabbing it by the horns. Following through is important to me. I’ve only ever gotten anywhere in life by finishing what I started, even when I didn’t want to. Enjoy!
“Now I see that these are cards we drew some time ago, so if you don’t know:
I can do it anywhere with anyone at anytime
Don’t you forget this is my life and it’s gonna to be good, don’t you know
Not a promise or a threat or an ultimatum, though I can do those too
I’m just telling you, I’ve got this life I’ve got to live
I’m just following through…”
