Tonight has been strange. Well, I think that everyday is unique/strange/unusual, but this day seems to be one of those really odd ones. First there was the strange coincidence of several TFL folks eating pizza, which I guess isn’t that strange when you think about how Friday is one of those days when pizza is considered a valid dining choice. Then, there was my odd decision to finally start adding more people I know from real life on my Twitter account. This probably means that I should either adjust my behavior to something more fitting with my real life friends’ tastes and personalities, or just be me, and hope that they are okay with it. I’ll probably do the latter. I’m sick of trying to be the girl that people want me to be, and not being the girl that I actually am. Tonight was also the night that I got a rude wall posting from someone I know from real life, where I was told that we could no longer be friends because I’m “very fat and very ugly”. Another friend explained that the other guy was going through some issues in his personal life, and that, though that didn’t excuse his behavior, those issues explained why he was acting in an inappropriate manner.
I’ve sort of been thinking over the past few days about how my life has changed over the (almost) ten years that I’ve had fuzzypinkslippers.com. I’ve gone from a girl who dropped out of high school to a girl who dropped out of college. I’ve gone from someone who never saw people she knew from high school and other real life outlets to someone who never sees people from high school, college, and other real life outlets. I’ve gone from a girl who spent a lot of times at different appointments to a girl who spends a lot of time at different appointments. So, basically, my life hasn’t really changed all that much.
I need some suggestions about promoting Urban Sunrise. I was thinking about having a referral contest. Sometimes those work. Basically, you join, then have your friends join and say you referred them, and at the end of the contest, the person with the most referrals will win. I think that might work, but I would prefer that people actually post if I do this. (I’ve done a contest like this before, and people would refer other folks, but no one would post.
I’m really getting sick of this layout, so I may try making a new one soon…or I’ll post a premade one until I make a new one.
