Ok, so I admit it.

I was wrong. Go and do your little victory dances, enjoy it while it lasts, but hurry back cause I'm not done here.

Today I discovered that there are blogs out there that are actually on interesting thing. Seriously!

Ok, so maybe I was slightly quick to judge but the kinds of blogs I had been exposed to didn't exactly attract me. Of course, I knew about the political/religious blogs but those aren't really topics that hold my interest for long at a time (not long enough to keep me reading through a whole post, much less the comments). This scene is more for my mother, the blog guru of my family.

What really repelled me from blogging where the ones I saw a lot of during my A-levels. Every blog I saw was a dear diary type, the topic of which being either of the "My life is hell! I didn't get x grade/ mom won't let me do x" or the "I got so drunk and slept with someone whom I don't know, Wohoo". No, none of this attracted me at all. I've always found this quite pointless and very egocentric.

While all blogging is probably egocentric to a level, these blogs that I've actually found interesting are on much more interesting than the dear diary or news types. The blogs I enjoy are the ones that share the thoughts of people who write on topics I like, such as writing, pets, hand crafts, art or technology, just to name a few. Of course there are still plenty of blogs out there that aren't really that interesting but finding the few that really are is quite exiting. :D

So wish me luck as I put my (cyber) walking boots on and begin my journey through the great wood that is the blogsphere.

Few of the blogs that caught my attention and might be worth a bit of yours:
Pink Ink (don't you just love the name?)
Unbilled Time
Shapely Prose

Told you so!

See! See! I said I was bad at this blogging stuff. As usually I've totally forgotten about this thing for a whole week... or more, can't remember. xP Well, at least I didn't forget as long as I did with my first lifejournal (created on a whim when I was feeling down) where I wrote one post and then forgot about it for a whole year xD

So what is there to blog about today...

Prom Praise.
I came, I saw, I wasn't impressed.

Don't get me wrong, it had a few songs that were nice but seriously, not worth the fuss people have been making over it since I moved to this country. But I'm not a very musical inclined person. Most likely, I'd never have gone if it were not for a friend of my family inviting us to come along. I kinda started the concert off on the wrong foot though, seeing as when I arrived, tired from preforming with my choir and traveling back and forth (my concert was down in Bournemouth while the Prom Praise was in London), I was informed that my ticket was an arena one. For those of you who aren't familiar with that it means I was standing all night. I don't mind it terribly but I do mind when I'm not told that I will be. My feet were already tired and I selected shoes more for the aesthetic rather than comfort. So I started off annoyed. Of course, I had a book with me so I was fairly content just sitting down, hidden by the crowd of people, and reading while I listened. All in all a fairly pleasant evening but can't say it impressed me much. Still worth a listen if you're a big music lover.

And if you get arena tickets, make sure to pack a picnic! ;) Quite a few people there had blankets and packed sandwiches, a lot smarter than buying them from the bar with its twice inflated prices. Makes it a bit cosier too.
