Blah blah blah none of my friends/family understand me. I’m all alone in the universe. Winona Ryder reference. I have all of these feeeeeeeeelings. I’m being sort of ironic but mostly because I’m being definitely serious and therefore meta. Does that make me a post-millenial? Is that what the millenials will call us when they start hating us like the boomers hate them? Or will they go with Generation Z? That sounds much cooler.
That was a digression. I am starting this blog because I’m bored. I want to feel connected to the world but sometimes I can’t risk my health by going out into it. I have cystic fibrosis which is a very top level way of saying: none of my body systems work like they’re supposed to which means my life is not normal in a lot of ways. One of those ways is, I can’t be around other people with CF and I can’t be exposed to certain illnesses. This results in a lot of time at home alone trying to find ways to feel connected. Luckily – it’s become that it’s now difficult NOT to be connected. So I started this blog to challenge the short-form phenomenon of modern connectivity: twitter, facebook, instagram, tumblr. People have become comically shortwinded – maybe in an attempt to build drama, create mystery, appear elusive, etc?
Details became boring.
But in my family, where my mother is a badass tattooed feminist Lutheran minister who wants the entire world open to me and for me to open myself up to the entire world and my father is a personal injury attorney who sees everything in the world as a potential risk or threat and wants me bubble-wrapped, it’s pretty hard to ignore the details!
So for the sake of narcissistic posterity, to combat boredom, and to connect to you lovely reader(s) please let there be plural, I’m gonna write some stuff up here when the mood strikes. I hope it gets interesting!
