There is no shortage of people around here that drip with adoration for The Bloggess. My story is nothing special, and I think that's the best part.
I doubt that I would have ever started this blog if it weren't for her encouraging everyone around her to be proud of who they were,
even if especially if who they were was a bunch of weirdos. In fact, it was my experience with this blog that inspired me to pursue my dream of going back to school and pursuing a journalism degree.
Now, I'm not afraid to take responsibility for my own success, but I feel compelled to express appreciation when it manages to seep into my lonesome, wicked heart.
Last year, I wrote a post called B is for Bucket List. I decided it was time that I put together a short list of some life goals. On that list was
- Meet Jenny Lawson - This woman has helped me tremendously and I would like to thank her in person one day. Also, I want to get a picture of me staring at her boobs.
Well, I haven't been posting much in the last year, but I'm pleased to announce that May 16, 2012, I was able to make this dream a reality. On that day, the Bloggess was in town doing a book signing and I went to go visit her. I thanked her. We were both a little awkward, then I stared at her boobs.
|You can't see them because of the arm, but I could.|
Mission. Fucking. Accomplished. Thank you again, Bloggess, for enabling me to reach my goals.
So I guess this post actually ties together all three of my B posts for the past A-Z challenges. My first year was B is for Boobs.
I like to get to know you wonderful people, so don't forget to leave a comment and come back tomorrow when our topic will be "C is for Chocolate." Don't worry, I'll make sure to make it a little inappropriate.
