Grazie to Bora for tagging me in a Blogging with Substance meme.
1. Sum up your blogging motivation, philosophy and experience in exactly 10 words.
“My research is boring; need an outlet for cooler stuff.” Wow, that was hard. 10 words isn’t enough space, but I guess that’s the point.
2. Pass it on to 10 other blogs with substance.
Oh dear. I don’t know that 10 other blog writers even read my blog at this point, so I will say that if any of you I’m linking to in the sidebar to the right happen to come across this, consider yourself tagged.
On a personal note, I’m having a pretty rough day. I have to go to a friend’s wedding upstate tomorrow, and as I’ve mentioned before on this blog, I am highly agoraphobic. There is nothing that sounds enjoyable to me about sitting in a car for two hours, sitting in a wedding for 1-2 hours, going to a crowded reception, and then sitting in the car for another two hours to get home. All of that is panic attack central for me, and I’m starting to get pretty nervous about it. I keep trying to distract myself, because I know that panic is a positive feedback loop. The more I think about it, the more nervous I’ll get, and the worse time I’ll have tomorrow.
It helps to know that if I survive the trip tomorrow, I have nothing else planned between now and late September. I’ll probably wind up taking an Ativan or two, hopefully that’ll get me through it.
