First WP Post

By being a computer genius, blogs, wp One Comment

Welcome to the new and improved Baby, You Can(‘t) Drive My Car. I hope you enjoy the new blog. Please take a look around and let me know what you think. I was able to import almost everything from the LJ except for the moods/songs at the end of each post and all the photos that were in some of my posts. Other than that, I think every comment came over, so I’ve just been getting everything in order before unveiling it to you guys, If you notice anything major missing, please let me know. I’m working on some photos and designs for the sidebar and hope to have those up soon.

If you had a link to Baby, You Can(‘t) Drive My Car featured on your site, please update it with the new one!

Again, welcome, and thanks for stopping by! Feel free to leave a comment and let me know what you think.

Dear Livejournal,

I’ve decided that it’s all your fault that I don’t post in this blog anymore. I’m the type of person who gets crazy attached to inanimate objects, so I haven’t been able to accept that I may have to move the LJ to another website. (Can a website even be classified as an inanimate object?) The thought of migrating the LJ to another site makes me think about what will happen to all of my tags (especially the posts tagged “lj”). I’m seriously considering moving though. For real this time. You want to know why? Because when I drive through a New Jersey intersection after midnight and see a muscly-looking dude standing in the middle of the road outside his vehicle, trying to force a black t-shirt over his fedora-ridden head, I want a cool place to jot that down. Especially if, when I roll down the window, the guy yells, “I swear, he farted,” pointing at his passenger (who is still inside the vehicle). “He farted and I can’t even get into the car!”

I also would love to have someplace to brag about how I won a trip to St. Maarten at work and how I think my hair color is more interesting than everyone else’s. And I seriously doubt that readers of my other blog would respect me very much if I posted there about how I fell backwards down some concrete steps in Norfolk trying to take photos of my own outfit with the custom timer feature on my point-and-shoot camera. I need this blog for posts like that, you know?

You have until December, LiveJournal. Become cooler or I’m pulling the plug.

Back to School (Again)

By blogs, gen y, lj, school, skills No Comments

I registered for a few classes at TCC – Principles of Accounting I and Pre-Calculus. I know, I know — you’re thinking, why does this girl sign up for weird, boring classes like accounting and calculus and rhetoric?  I’m taking them because I have decided to apply to the MBA program at ODU (and maybe a few other places) next year. Calculus is a required course to apply, and so are Accounting I and II (at a few other places).

Of course, I’ve made the decision to apply to grad school for multiple things over the past few years, so perhaps this plan will change again. If I remember correctly, my decision to take Modern Rhetoric last year was supposed to put me on the path towards earning an M.A. in English. And if you’ve been reading this blog long enough, you might recall my passionate plan to enroll in the Walter Cronkite School at Arizona State.

In order to prepare for my bright future as a business expert (and to build on my already-exceptional marketing skills), I’ve been keeping up with the blogs kept by the likes of Nadira Hira (writer for Fortune), Jeremy Pepper (of POP! PR), Guy Kawasaki, and Garr Reynolds (Presentation Zen). 

Actually, I’ve been avidly reading these blogs because my friend Chris DeMay took down his website – most likely due to a lack of participation – and I found myself looking for additional reading material.

If you can’t tell, I’m trying to make my LJ more interactive by providing more relevant links in the text. Have fun clicking.
