Leap Day

Hello,

Today is what is know as Leap Day, February 29th. I was told I was supposed to seize the day a while ago, since Leap Day is kind of like the extra day gifted to us once every four years. I, however, disagree. Leap Day is more or less just one more hash mark on the days, there is no holiday. My year would be practically identical if leap day did not exist. Despite the general public’s idea of the importance of leap day, I find it to simply throw me off. For instance, when little kids are learning how many days there are in each month there is an very different number of days in February. To me it would make much more sense if Leap day and the last day of March were switched therefor there would always be 29 days in February and 30 or 31 days in March or take it off of August.

Also, why is it called Leap Day, rather the 28th of February when there is no 29th should be leap day since you leap over the 29th. Alternatively, the 29th of February could be called Lag Day.

Confused about “Lag Day”,

Answering Days

Hello,

Today I will be answering the questions I posed awhile ago, maybe this will get me back to the bloging state of mind. Maybe, I’ll even remember to blog tomorrow .

Q: How was your day today?

A: My day went well today. I went out to eat (always a plus) and it was very relaxing.

Q: What do you have on your feet?

A: I currently have nothing on my feet, unfortunately.

Q: How many hairs do you think you have, not only on your head?

A: 5,738 (that is a total guess)

Q: Where is the closest exit to you right now?

A: The closest exit for me is about 50 feet to my left.

Q: If you met an alien, what would you do?

A:  I honestly have no idea. I guess I would wait for the alien to make the first move and depending on that react accordingly….

Q: If you had to pick any age to be what age would you pick?

A: I would like to five. When you are younger certain, tasks that I would consider easy are difficult such as walking and running. By the time one is fine most of gross and fine motor skills

Q: What are your feelings on tugboats?

A: Tugboats, well I am relatively indifferent on the tugboat debate, although I have never ridden one.

Q: When did you find this blog?

The day, moment, second it was created. What a coincidence.

Q: Do you have your own blog?

A: If I answered no, would you believe me?

Q: How many languages can you speak (this is not only “hello” and “where is the bathroom”)?

A: Two, American English and German. Although, I would not say I am fluent in German (the bar for fluent for me is when you dream in a language, unfortunately I dream only in English).

Q: When was the last time you received a compliment?

A: Yesterday, someone liked my shirt.

Q: When was the last time you gave a compliment?

A: Today, I told someone I liked their piece of written work.

Q: If you had to run as a political candidate today, what would your platform be?

A: My platform would be something that I think the least amount of people would vote for, since I have no desire to be elected.

Q: How many lives have you led?

A: Countless…

Q: What is your favorite color?

A: Dark green, hands down.

Q: If your favorite color determined your stature in society, would you change it?

A: No, I currently have no idea what colors are what statures. Also, I hope that a society where stature was based solely on your favorite color would be overthrown.

 

Hopefully you learned a little bit about me,

Jackie

Questioning Days

Hello,

For my writing today (after this sentance), I shall simply write questions.

How was your day today? What do you have on your feet? How many hairs do you think you have, not only on your head? Where is the closest exit to you right now? If you met an alien, what would you do? If you had to pick any age to be what age would you pick? What are your feelings on tugboats? When did you find this blog? Do you have your own blog? How many languages can you speak (this is not only “hello” and “where is the bathroom”)? When was the last time you received a compliment? When was the last time you gave a compliment? If you had to run as a political candidate today, what would your platform be? How many lives have you led? What is your favorite color? If your favorite color determined your stature in society, would you change it?

-Jackie

P.S. I will answer these tomorrow. I have also updated the books section of this site.

New Years Day and Day of Birth

Hello,

When I started this blogging business I thought that would only last a few days, but three was even very few for me. Hopefully, this time, I will reach at least four days. I kept telling myself that I would return when I had tried to flip a coin to make a big decision. Unfortunately,  I have not had any major decisions to make, maybe next time though…

This year I have decided not to make a new year’s resolution, even though I have in years previous. “Why?” you may ask. I have decided that rather than a new year’s resolution I will make a birthday resolution. New years seems to me to be an odd holiday. There is no particular reason, as far as I can see, that the new year was three days ago. I mean, is there any rhyme or reason it could not be between February and March, or September and October, or even in the middle of a month. A day of much more importance for me is my birthday. Yes, my birthday could have been in any month, or even the same day as new years day, but something actually changes on that date. When you are eighteen you can vote. When you are 21 you can legally have alcohol. When you are 35 you can run for president. When you have been through 18 new years days though there is nothing necessarily  different than 17 new years days.  So I will have a birthday resolution, instead of a new years resolution mostly for that reason (also, I have not thought of a good one yet).

Day 3 (books)

As a precursor to my blog, I have been examining the blogs of others, and it seems, to me at least that the successful ones have some sort of theme to them rather than simple-minded ramblings, so I have (for the time being) decided on a general topic. I, for one am a voracious reader and I need to read more, so after today, I have decided that every Friday there will be a review of the book I read that week. Now, it is relatively easy for me to get through a book per week, but living in the world I realize that I might get through a whole book every week. So Fridays will still be a review, but they may not be a review of a whole book, rather they may be bits and pieces of books. If you have any suggestions I would be glad to hear them, unfortunately the library is slightly hard to get to from where I am currently, but I shall try. Right now, though happens to be a point where I have a lot of time and a library in close proximity, so, for now at least Fridays will be a review of a whole book and I will build up my reserves of books for upcoming Fridays after that.

I read everything, except romance, so any category other than that will probably show up at least once. I have only recently began to read a variety of non-fiction books, so my knowledge of those is rather limited, but I adore most of the fiction and non-fiction sections (except for those pesky romances).

Hoping this blog will last at least until the review of book 1,

Jackie

Day 2

Hello,

So far so good, alas it is only day 2, but I feel as though this progress points into the right direction of me actually continuing, unfortunately I do not have a specific topic I wish to discuss today, so for now, it will just be some rambling on.

I have been read some quotes today on a website called “http://icanread.tumblr.com“. Although, I feel as though I should be doing something more productive, there is an allure to simply reading all of the inspiring quotes.  This is one of my favorites. I will have to use it soon and then I will report in my results.

Welcome

I find myself oddly entranced at the thought of keeping this blog. Although my previous attempts at the follow through on blogs, diaries, journals, you name it, have quickly fallen by the wayside. I have hope that this one will last longer…oh, who am I kidding. If I keep this up to date for more than a month or two I will consider it a success. Actually, knowing me, two weeks would be a success. So do not get your hopes up, if, for some odd reason you are actually reading this. Just for your information, I am not considered a pessimist by any stretch of the imagination, in fact, although I would consider myself a realist, most consider me an optimist. Now, with that in mind, as I said before, do not get your hopes for any long term commitment from me. Thankfully, my blog contract is nowhere near as binding as marriage, so as far as I can see, no harm, no foul, if this also falls to the wayside.
