Forgotten but Not Forever…

Well, seems as soon as the Navy hit I promptly forgot about my blog. Alas, I have come to my senses and decided to pick up where I left off, at least a little. Unfortunately being out at sea means I cannot make any videos or post any pictures. So for the time being it will be words on top of words on top of words. This is just my hello again message.

And on an unrelated note, I have been given a new and difficult task: to create a pair of male crochet shorts… in 10 days. We shall see how this goes. Wish me luck.

And we’re at it again.

Well folks, looks like it is that time again. I have the blogging bug and since I’m living in Japan and that includes many adventures and shenanigans I might as well start documenting those so I can share them with you all. Now it’s just a matter of going through ALL the pictures and figuring out how to present them in a fashion that makes sense and that won’t take too much time for me to put together. That being said, I’m going to read up on a few things and start sorting pictures! Just wanted to give a heads up that there is more to come! Super fun stuff!

My First Vlog?

So I decided to try out the vlogging thing… I kind of explain why in the video. It was interesting and weird but I think it may work well for me sometimes. Sorry it is over 11 minutes… I apparently like to ramble. It was also WAY past my bedtime so I was exhausted and stumbling over words. C’est la vie!

This does mean that I have a new YouTube channel that’s hooked up to my blog: My Bohemian Niece. Yay for the same name to make things easier! =) Enjoy, or should I say good luck.

Much Love,

Laura

Here we go… Again

I have a love hate relationship with blogging. I love the concept of it, I love the community that reads and writes, I love the ability to share with friends near and far, I love a lot about blogging. I hate… well I don’t really hate anything about it (yet). I just have never found my groove.

(This is also me not quite finding my groove- with our crazy April/May weather this year!)

Over the years, I’ve attempted blogging on several occasions. Sometimes I got farther and more involved than other times. I used different platforms (I think that’s what they’re called) and have used many different names. I always wanted to blog so bad, I just never did.

Well, about the past year I have felt this strange compulsion to blog. I long to be part of the community that I have followed for years and feel like I know. If I ran into many of you ladies on the street I would probably instinctively be like “Oh hey, (insert your name here)! What’s up? How is your cat doing? I hope he’s feeling better. Your dad too!” And you’d be all “Who the heck are you stalker girl? Creepy.” Then you’d walk off and I would be mortified. Yep. That’s mostly likely what would happen.

Anyway, I created a blog on TypePad almost a year ago to document a really awesome opportunity I got to perform in the show CATS for several months out in Virginia. Ha, because I thought I was going to have tons of time to sit around and blog. No. I was out having adventures and seeing as much of that part of the country as I could! But the name My Bohemian Niece was born then, because that is what my wonderful Great Uncle Bugs started referring to me as. I loved the name. I wanted to use it so I stuck it on my blog. I still love it. I think it’s a keeper.

I get side tracked easily. Where was I? Oh yes, now. I returned from Virginia in November, immediately met this wonderful boy salsa dancing (the week I got back) and we started dating. I also started an (unpaid, yay) internship in December and then proceeded to begin my last year of college (everyone in unison now: FINALLY), plus my job to pay the bills. So, I’ve been busy and distracted and all that jazz, but I still was wanting to blog. Really bad. And I have no idea where this compulsion is coming from but it simply won’t go away! I decided to finally give in. I am restarting my little piece of internet home here, on wordpress, because everyone says this is the place to be.

Confession, I have had this created for a while now, I just never wrote anything. I sit and stare at the blank screen and don’t write. I get scared. I don’t have an editorial calendar yet! I don’t know exactly what my voice will be yet! I’m not sure exactly what I’ll write about. So I never wrote anything, which wasn’t soothing my itch any. Tonight, even though I have to be up early for a coffee meeting, I am forcing myself to start. Just write. I will get everything else figured out soon enough. I have to start somewhere and tonight is as good a night as any. So hello internet world, I am here and I hope to stay.

All my love,

Laura
