I'm curious, why would anyone read a blog with a highly personal (even if names are left out) rant against a person/place/thing?
I'm feeling very rant-y.
I know a few things:
1. Not many people read my little blog here
2. It is possible that in the future more people will read it and go through the back-log
3. Putting a personal rant up is very cowardly.
I am not a coward.
I also know that there are blogs and talk shows dedicated solely to ranting about very specific things, people, and places that the population does indeed read/listen to/watch.
So why can't I bring myself to do it? Why can't I tell you what is going through my mind at this exact moment?
Reason number one: I'm currently at an Elementary School finishing out my day. Surrounding me are children that I know I am an example for. Even though they will never know my thoughts, or that I'm even typing this, I know that what goes on in my head tends to leak to my words and actions. So, as I was in classrooms and one on one, I put my thoughts to the back. I purposefully focused on the tasks I was teaching or assisting with.
Reason number two: My problem is a petty one. I feel slighted. I am not the only one who feels this way, but I have not seen any other outcry of disrespect directed toward the party in question. I refuse to be the first.
Is there a reason number three? Do I have to have a reason not to post hateful comments on my blog? Do I need a reason to post them? Not really.
I just needed to get my thoughts into writing, and thankfully I am a fairly speedy typist. Handwriting a journal can be therapeutic, but frustratingly slow.
You, my dear reader, are just that lucky. 😉
