Keep On... Keepin' On

Thanks to everyone who commented on yesterday's post about Gossip and negative energy surrounding blogging. It's nice (although a horrible situation) to know that I'm not the only one who has gotten flack for trying my hand at blogging. Sure, when I first started blogging my friends/husband/family didn't understand why, but over time they realized how much it made me happy... and I'm pretty sure the only way my mom knows I'm alive on the days I don't call her is by checking the blog ;-) (hi Mom!).

I talked this out with the hubs last night, trying to figure out who would even care if I blogged or not. I read through old posts, trying to figure out what I said that was offensive or laughable. I cried a little. And then I went to spin class, spun until my legs were jello, and moved on. (Spin therapy is the best!). Whenever you put your life out there for others to read about/analyze/judge/whatever, it makes sense that people may not agree with you, people may not like you, etc. I think everyone has the desire to be liked, but I know that I'm a very opinionated person and I can't win every battle.

For now I will keep on doing what I'm doing. Right now it's work out, class, and working at my school's end-of-year play/production for the graduating seniors. Then onward to the last weekend before I really hit the OR for my surgery rotation (last 2 weeks was anesthesia).

What are you up to this weekend?

Do you try to be liked or try not to care what people think? (Or both?)

Blog, HAPPY, LIFE, and more:
