Words From a Shy Yet Social Woman


I love writing. I love written communication. I excel in expressing myself  when I am writing my thoughts down, verbally, I don’t excel as much. I think its partially because I prefer to listen and wait till no one is saying anything to respond but its also because i’m shy. Verbally expressing myself has been a difficult task for me but i’m working on it and getting better. I love to chat and share verbally and I do so a lot. I’m a chatty girl, really, I am; still, I prefer to express my wants and needs with written words. Maybe, it is because I don’t feel as shy or maybe it’s because I can take the time to fully express what I want to say without interruption. Either way, written words are my chosen medium. Being preferential to the written word coupled with a creative imagination, it’s no wonder I became a writer.   I’ve been writing fiction and non-fiction since I was 15!  At the age of 18, I published my first short story in the Young Writers’ of Canada  Tales from the Campfire.  I wrote a very short story (350 words)  about a teenage girl who survived a serious drunk-driving car accident (leaving it  a large gash across her cheek, which served as a reminder to not drink and drive.)   Afterwards, I attended university and as an assistant editor (then editor then assistant Editor-In-Chief) I wrote many articles for Imprint Publications. Now, I’m currently writing a novel, which I would like to finish my first draft by December (fingers crossed). The written word has become a strong part of my life and I hope it will stay that way but I’m continuing to improve my verbal communications as well!

Besides it’s like Terri Main says ” You are a writer, the ‘normal’ ship sailed without you long ago.”

In between the “ah-ha” moments: A quest for meaning.

Life has those little “ah-ha” moments that give you clarity and propel you forward with a renewed and reinvigorating zest towards a goal (large or small).  You feel it too,  maybe its that extra pep in your step or you skipping that caffeinated coffee beverage, or maybe its just that you’ve checked your baggage at the door, either way, you want to sing from the roof tops.  I love those moments, I really do. Nothing gets my engine revving like new found or rediscovered ( creature of comfort here!)  purpose. Whether its  was my degree or my  graduate certificate, a new found love of fitness (who knew?) or my love of the written word (currently writing a novel!), I just love having a strong sense of purpose. Lately, however, I haven’t had a purpose, let alone a strong one. I feel meaningless some days. I’ve been floating about  trying activities and exploring new interests in hopes of  achieving a new  “ah-ha” moment, unfortunately, I haven’t.   

Being left to my own devices, I’ve tried all sorts of stuff, I’ve taken cake decorating classes, online classes, and am even practicing my french, which as it turns out, i’m worse than I thought at these things. But, being a jaded optimist leaves me expecting for the worst and hoping for the best. So, while i’m prepared to struggle finding purpose again, i’m still hoping for the best.   

Is there hope out there for me?   

Only time will tell 😉 


Thanks for reading!

Today’s post is just a simple article I found while browsing my various social media sites.  This article I found while browsing Digg.

It is an interesting test. I’d also be curious in his situation too.  I think this guy (Jon) met a nicer or newbie type of spam/schemer/hacker, but that doesn’t mean that everyone is that way. Give it a read and post your thoughts about it.. maybe we can have some lively conversation! (or not)  LOL.

Also if you want another hit of IT/web and buyer beware please read this article about domain names: Article

Archaic media depicted at its prime.

Archaic media depicted at its prime.

Crazy to think that at a time all of these items helped ups remember and communicate with each other.

In elementary school, ICQ was the ultimate social media networking tool for my friends and I outside of school. Before we used to spend hours on the phone just chatting about whatever. Unfortunately the corded phone left little space for us to do much else on the phone. Thankfully, ICQ brought us the opportunity to multitask. While using ICQ, I could also work on my webpages (I had two: one girly and one based on an anime I was rather fond of at the time), go to the kitchen to grab a drink, search items on the internet, and such. With ICQ I could even chat with people from school that I rarely spoke with in person, people who I might not have known otherwise.

All in all, those days were pretty awesome and I somewhat feel nostalgic …that is until I remember dial up speeds and then I’m grateful for my present amenities.
Today we’re even more connected to social media than we were, some ways it is fantastic, magnificent, and any other non supercilious word you’d like to insert. I, as well as some of my friends are big fans of Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Skype fans and (obviously!) WordPress, and I don’t see this changing any time soon…

BUT who knows what the world of Social Media holds for us tomorrow! In the meantime, take a moment to go offline and speak with a friend in person, you’ll thank me later 🙂



Simply beautiful.
