I have had a pretty busy day today, and couldn't decide what I could write about that was fairly quick and easy. So, I was looking around the NaBloPoMo prompt tab and saw one suggesting I write about where I was and what I was doing 10 years ago. I knew I could do one better! Even though I've only had nonchalantgirl for a little while, I HAVE been blogging for 10 years. The proof: I have a blog post from 10 years ago to share. Well, it's actually from November 16, 2000 but ... here's the throwback! Enjoy!

8:51 PM CT: Why, YES, this IS an UPDATE!!
Yes, yes, I know it's been awhile... but, well, you see... I must confess... I've been busy with other things. As you may recall, last week Robert Jordan's new book came out, and well, it engrossed me. Which, btw, is a good thing, right? So much happened and I must say, I did enjoy this book -- very much so. But, for those of you that are reading it, I won't say anything else. ^_^ Let you find out on your own.
And then, I've been trying to finish up watching the anime that Kris sent me. I LOVE CCS, btw, and I am totally in love with Yukito-san *big huge dreamy sighs* *ggls*. Yeah, yeah, I know! I know! ^_- I want to get it all done before the holidays come upon me (ack! is that next week??) because then I won't have much time.
And so I'm behind. Behind in moving my blog. Behind in putting up my blog layout which Mirs made for me, which is too kawaii! Behind in working on my Nyan-Nyan shrine (it's hard when there isn't much around the 'net to scour up!). Behind in getting a new layout up for Nonchalant.nu. AND, to make matters worse, my CD drive is not working. I'm going to have to send that to be fixed soon, which means: no computer for awhile. *sighs*
And then, could I just say... I'm a HORRIBLE friend!!!! To Christine!!! *hangs head in shame* I didn't forget her birthday, really I didn't. It was in October... and I knew when it was... really! But... I let it go, because I swore to myself that I would send her a card, or something, at some time. But it slid by. And then I promised myself it would be something late. And then... here it is, a month later... and to make it worse I had two cards from her sitting in my P.O. Box yesterday. One as a Halloween card, and the other was a birthday card! *sighs* I am SO sorry, Christine! I'll write you soon, I promise! I love you!!!!
Birthday. Yes. It's my birthday soon. On Sunday. I'm going to be 25. It feels so surreal. Really. I'm going to be out of the targeted demographic of 18-24. I'm young at heart, though, and most people think I'm younger than I look, which, I guess, is a good thing. I probably have more to say, but, well, not right now.
So, here I am. Back, hopefully, on a regular basis. Thanks for the poke, Mirs. ^_^
So, I better get back to work, now. Not that there's much work, but well, gotta look productive.
Wow, I can't believe I was bemoaning turning 25. *LOL*
