First blog posts are always a little awkward – so blind date-y. Let’s give it a go anyways.
Hi, my name is Morgan, and I started blogging in 2000, back before the word blog had been invented. I chronicled my every move and thought for all of university on Diaryland. I eventually switched over to Blogger, and I wrote there until early 2008. And then, for many, many reasons, I stopped. So why start again now? I don’t quite know, I just know I want to be part of the conversation. There’s so many smart, funny, interesting people writing in the little corner of the internet I like reading, and I want to be more of a part of that. Without getting twitter, because, well, no.
Let’s see. I’m at the end of my twenties, have a good job with some interesting challenges, and am married to a wonderful man. I take oil painting classes and play dodgeball. I read more books than is probably strictly healthy for anyone, and dream of one day having a library with a ladder. I enjoy yoga for the relaxation, but currently much prefer cardio boxing, because I get to punch people. I live in the great white frozen north, and am always dreaming of my next vacation. The last one was France, Belgium, Germany and the Czech Republic, and the next one is Los Angeles. The furthest I’ve ever travelled is Oman, and the bravest trip was to Costa Rica at 18 by myself, speaking no Spanish and having no plan.
And the name? High Diving Board? Well, we’re talking about starting to try for babies soon, and I feel like I’m standing on the edge of the 5 meter tower, looking down, terrified and excited and exhilarated and more than a little afraid of screwing up. Trying to nerve up for the plunge.
