I’m starting a new series here at the Ignorant Historian. As I’ve been talking lately about my starts in the blogging world, it occurred to me that there were a few, umm, “gems” from my Xanga-ing days that I don’t want to lose sight of. I won’t be featuring everything, but just a few here and there that made me snicker. I think you’ll come to realize I wasn’t always quite the eloquent blogger I am now (ha!).
Here, with my first 3 Xanga posts in their entire, is my start in the weblogging world. These are from the tail-end of my senior year at the University of Oklahoma. I’m surprised anyone read these at all.

Okay, so it took me awhile to decide, but I figured I might as well start a xanga. I like hopping on the bandwagon as it starts to slow down. Actually, I generally like hopping. I should be researching for my 15-page research paper (due Tuesday). I suppose that was the final straw in my joining-xanga decision.

So, an actual post. I’ve had a problem these last few days with my attire. The problem is, you see, that I have matched. Yesterday I matched (my nail polish and my shirt, of all things!) and Thursday I matched (my cute flip flops, my shirt, my bag, and my nails!). I’m having a major fashion crisis here! I am not cutesy enough to always match! That is why today, I am wearing a t-shirt.
I’m in the middle of writing my research paper over the constitution of Japan. It’s going fairly smoothly, but I would much rather be doing pretty much anything else.

I got found out.
Today at the Union, I tried to kick Mindy. However, my legs (being short, just ask Mindy) I have a very short radius on who I can kick so she quickly got out of harm’s way. However, I was caught. Brian snuck up from behind me and saw the whole thing. I publicly apologize for any harm I have caused.
Then, we went up the elevator. On the second floor the door opened, and there was a cart there. Mindy said, “Uh…I don’t know what to do…um…do I need to scoot over?” I just laughed and said, “Mindy, I don’t think the cart is going to come in on its own…”
Next, we went to Wendy’s where another “finding out” happened. I was publicly rebuked. I really can’t tell too much of the details, but if you are a girl, ask and I’ll tell you. Sarah, I thought we were better friends than this. I can’t help it if my shadow does everything I do.
In class today, I turned in my paper! I also gave a 5 minute presentation about my topic. I’m glad that’s over. I got to go second, which is awesome so I had the rest of the 2 hr. 50 min. class to sit there and zone out (I’m sorry, I tried to listen!) and do my best to comment on others’ presentations.
After class, Mindy and I went to Wal-mart, where we were promptly checked out (it’s not just me after all!) with my only purchase, Ocean’s 12! I only went about 20 feet and 2 minutes into the store; it was so nice.
Last, but certainly not least, I came home to my hall full of girls and was pleasantly greeted by the hottest member of the hall, Kerie. (she says Amen to that!)
