I was sitting at my desk today doing something that required no thought at all; to help pass the time, I had iTunes playing on shuffle. A song I'd never heard before from Garbage got to the top of the list. It had a great title and seemed like some good advice to help me get through the afternoon: "The Trick is to Keep Breathing."

While the introduction of the song played I googled the lyrics (what did I do before I had google and answers at my fingertips.) The overall song was a little depressing and not something I related to, but the first few lines gave me something to think about while I kept at my brainless work:

She's not the kind of girl
Who likes to tell the world
About the way she feels about herself

I read/heard the lines and instantly thought, that's a bit like me. But then I stopped to think about this new blogging habit of mine and wondered if that proved the lines were nothing like me. I had a mental debate for a while and finally realized that I have no problem writing about the things that happen to me and how I feel about those experiences, but I don't think I write much about what I feel about myself, heck half the time I don't think I know how I feel about myself. (Say that 3 times quickly.)

This blogging stuff still feels new and I love keeping a record of the little events that make up life, and even use it to occassionally work out how I'm feeling about some choice or change in life. But I'm not sure I'll ever be a blogger who can lay it all out on the line and I think I'm okay with that.
