My newest blog buddy, Caity, recently wrote a wonderful blog post entitled Five Words. She was given a set of five words and was told to write out what they meant to her. I requested five words to blog about and she was kind enough to give me five. So here they are:
I’m really glad Caity chose this word. It’s one of the most important words in my life. I’ve been designing in one way or another for over ten years. I’ve been a designer since the age of nine. I’m constantly thinking of ways to better establish my career. Yes, career, not job. Design is my life. I breathe it, I wear it, I sleep in it. You may not know it or not, but you do as well. There’s some aspect of design in our daily lives, but more importantly, it’s my life. I’m in love with a designer. Someone who has the same passions as I do. I love it. I could do an entire blog about my life and design, but I guess I’ll cut it short. Design is my life.
This is one I struggled with. Not physically, but in terms of discussing religion and my life on this blog. I rarely make this blog personal for the amount of readers I receive. I don’t know who is reading my blog, although I really shouldn’t care. Not that this has anything to do with religion! However, this comes at a perfect time. I have been following the beliefs of the Seventh Day Adventist Church for the past five years. On Saturday, I’ll finally be baptized into the church! I was raised Baptist (to an extent) however, I found myself filling void of my own personal beliefs.
I don’t discuss religion on Static-Romance because I don’t have time to argue with people. There’s three things a person can blog about that can cause backlash: race, religion, and politics. I try to avoid two of those, minus race because I will gladly blog about racial issues within ALL nationalities. However, I’ve become weary of arguing with people about religion before I even open my mouth. The daily judgment process I go through just because I state that I am a Christian is ridiculous and tiresome. I will never deny my faith. I will proudly proclaim wherever I may be (see my about me page). I do not hide it, but I simply will not go into great detail in blogging about it. I’m too busy to argue with people. I love everyone. I am not hateful or judgmental. I don’t know where people get these ideas of crazy Bible-thumping Christians; but seriously, some of us a liberal and open-minded to others. I love my religion and I enjoy going to church every week. This is also why you’ll never see me blog on a Saturday, unless I’ve incorrectly dated an auto-post.
My relationship with David is crazy. This is probably the other side of my life, outside of design. We’ve been dating since October 6, 2005. We have our ups and downs. Most of our downs was due to our distance. We spent most of our relationship in a long-distance relationship. They say long-distance relationships don’t last outside of a year. Well, I guess we’re the exception. We have a tolerance for things though. My relationship evolves everyday into something different. I can’t explain it accurately, but we’re constantly changing. There’s been very few times in our relationship, when things were at a stand still. We’re constantly becoming something new; but I don’t mind at all.
Even when we were not dating or taking a break, we were still best friends. We talked for 12+ hours a day. We spend a sickening amount of time together. In the world’s eyes, we’re probably way too young to get married. In the world’s eyes, we’re probably a mess. They’re right. We are a mess. I guess that’s how we’re still in one piece. We both have our battle scars; but we’re in it for the long run.
Music and I have an on and off relationship. We recently reconciled after a year of legal separation. I am very picky about the music I listen to. The older I get, the stranger my music seems to be. I have been a music addict for years. I would record music videos on VHS and play them back. I still have a few of those old tapes. The first CD I ever bought with my own money was Will Smith’s MIAMI. (LOL!) I try to keep and ear for different music, especially music from different cultures. Right now I am discovering many new artists. You should probably stalk me on Last.Fm to find out what I’m listening to.
I lost my blogging virginity in the Winter of 2004. Since then, I’ve owned/operated over ten types of blogs on various blogging platform. However, this site is my baby. It’s been on the back burner once or twice (our three times..) but I still love it. I tell everyone who wants to know about blogging, that this is my first baby. I named her, nourished her, dressed her, and shared her with the world. She’s growing up so fast. She’ll be three years-old before I know it. Blogging is just another way for be to express how I feel and to share what I love. It’s an extension of my designing and my writing combined into one. It’s hard to describe blogging’s place in my life other than it’s become a necessity. It’s how I feed out my emotions in some aspects. I wouldn’t do without it.
