So here goes. Going to try the blog thing YET again. Hopefully this time I'll keep it up, which I definitely need to do. I have a bad habit of not finishing what I start, especially when it comes to blogging. But I think that if I keep up with this new idea I got and get some followers, maybe I'll come up with a few interesting things to say.

First off, introductions. My name is Claire. I'm 21 and in college to be a Biology Teacher, which is getting more exhausting every day.

So, how am I going to keep up this blog when others have fallen by the wayside? Well, I was "Stumbling" around the Internet and came across this article. Since I have been struggling with my weight for a few years, never being able to control myself enough to keep it where I want, I thought this would be a really cool idea. So I called my grandfather when I got home for the summer from school, and yesterday he came over and cut a board for my own treadmill computer desk. (Pictures under the cut.) In addition, I'm going to walk to pic my little brother up from school for the rest of May until he's done for the year. We only live about 1.5 miles from the school, so it's really not a big deal to walk, and it feels really good by the time I get back. I just hope this works, because it's certainly tiring me out.

And now for the meat of this first entry. I want this blog to be about random things I see during the day. And while I was writing this entry, I've also been watching Gossip Girl online, because every girl is allowed to have a few guilty pleasures. Anyway, it was on one of those commercial breaks, and the commercial was about Cervical Cancer. I've been seeing a lot of these commercials on various online sites like Hulu and Fancast, and they're all deceptively cheery. "What if I meet someone? What if he likes me too? What if he gives me HPV?" Dun dun DUN! That, along with all the bright colors. . . it's creepy. I mean, I know HPV and Cervical Cancer are huge things. I got the Guardasil shots, and I learned all about HPV and cancer in my Cell Biology class this past semester. I just get weirded out by the happy-turn-sad commercials.

It reminds me of all the tampon commercials and how much I love the ones that make fun of the happy ones. It's a topic of conversation around my dorm apartment. Four girls living together for nine months out of the year? Tampon conversations are bound to come up.

Sorry if it's kind of a gross topic to start out a blog, but it's what I saw, so it's what I wrote.
