Celebrate!

I broke a hundred followers last week! I wanted to wait to see if anyone stopped following me after the giveaway I did over at Lattes and Love. No one has so far, so this little blog is currently at 123 followers.

Mind-blowing that even one person wants to read what I write. I don't find my self particularly funny or intriguing at all. I just do some fun link ups and write about my life. Glad to know people are liking what they are reading.

Which leads to my name change. I'm getting a decent bonus tomorrow (woo!). I'll ignore the fact that it means NO raise for the next few years. I'm going to take some of that money and pay for my own blog design. I want something that's totally mine you know?  I've been wanting a blog name that reflects me more (besides, I feel like my current name would be a fun one for a fashion blog, which I am not!) So I decided on Entirely My Own. It stems from this awesome quote:

It's always been one of my favorite quotes from Harry Potter. I've always felt the same thing about life. You have to live life in a way that's your own. In a way that fits who you are. You can't live life always wanting what others have. You'll fight a losing battle if you do.

So there you have it. I will be having a giveaway soon to celebrate my 100 follower milestone. I hope you'll spread that news once it happens. I'll also keep you posted on when my change will be official.

Off to training today. Is it sad that I'm excited to take a break from my firsties??

  2. I LOVE your blog and I am so glad that I was able to meet you (even if it is just over the bloggysphere!) I love that you know what I am going through, even if you aren't around me daily! (That just proves that education is the same no matter what state or city you live in!... Not sure thats exactly a good thing)

    But, I'm so happy that you hit 100 followers! I love reading what you write and I think you're interesting and I think you're funny! CONGRATS!!!!
