I’m Not Exactly New To Blogging….
But this is the first time I’ve ever used WordPress. In my younger days, I used Xanga. I’ve also been known to use Blogspot, and I’m no stranger to the blogging feature on MySpace nor the notes on Facebook. WordPress is totally different though, at least from what I can tell. Ah well – I wanted some sort of anonymity, and I figured in order to earn that, I’d have to use a totally different platform, so here I am.
I guess maybe I should try to tell you as much about myself as I can without giving up my identity as a whole. I’m twenty years old and I reside in the Eastern part of the United States. (I’ll give you a hint: I’m from the state that is the brunt of every inbred, backwoods, hick joke in the book.) I’m a waitress. It wasn’t so much a choice as it was one of those situations where beggers can’t be choosers. To be honest, being a waitress sucks more than a hooker on Valentine’s Day, but I guess it has its moments. You’ll hear a lot about my job on here, believe me. (Hence the “anonymity” part.) Sometimes you’ll hear about my personal life too. Then sometimes you’ll just hear the complete and utter nonsense that tends to pour from my overly caffeinated, underestimated mind.
I enjoy music a lot. I can (kinda-sorta) play guitar. OK, so I really only know a handful of chords, but one thing I’d like to accomplish in my 21st year is to play a bit more. I love to sing, although because A) I have a roommate, B) I live in an apartment complex, and C) I tend to be a loud singer, I don’t really do it much anymore. I think my overall persona is a cross between your everyday generic rocker chick with a few quirks that make me not-so-generic. (For example, I am twenty years old and I sleep with a stuffed animal. How’s that for a quirk?) I read a lot too, and I’ll read just about anything. Books, magazines, articles, pamphlets, the back of the cereal box….you get the picture. I’m sarcastic and cynical but quiet and reserved at the same time, although I doubt the “quiet and reserved” part will shine through much in this blog, seeing as how it’s going to be my venting spot. Mention SETI or Chernobyl and I’ll geek out. I’ve recently gone on a workout/eat healthier kick. Considering that I also smoke a pack a day and drink like nobody’s business, we’ll see how long that lasts.
As for my name on here – Burnt Karma – well, that’s exactly how my life goes I guess. One way or another, karma’s always burning.
