Check out this upcoming media tool that incorporates all of your favorite sites! My friend Matt tweeted about this a few weeks ago and I am extremely jealous to not have been given an preview invite. Guess I will be waiting with the rest of the world for the launch of Memolane. They should be making the announcement and full launch at SxSW in Austin Texas next month.

I am sitting at home, debating what to write about today. First off, yes I did get my but to Alamo Crossfit today so, my writers block is not coming due to lack of material. When I first started this site, it was meant to be a work experiment. I wanted to learn about the products my company offered first hand… by being a customer and consumer. I felt that by putting myself in the customers shoes, I would be able to relate to them better when they called or chatted in for support. Setting up this site was time consuming but a very fun learning experience too.
When I first started blogging, I stated that this was a site about randomness. I had no idea what to write about, no recurring theme that I saw coming out. I did however, know that if I had the urge to write something fun, I wanted a social avenue that would serve as an outlet for posting my ideas.
To recap, I have written about love, family, work, life, posted funny videos, funny jokes and fitness. Lately, all of my posts have seemed to center about Wellness and Fitness. I assume this will subside as the year goes by and I’m not so consumed by staying on track with my workouts. Right now, I am trying my best to spread the word about overall wellness, a healthy diet and a good workout regime. I write about it and try to encourage others about it, because this is something that I am passionate about. But heres the thing… I am passionate about alot of things! I am passionate about finding true love (which I am blessed to have found), about family and friends (which have been all around great lately) and about the general things that surround our every day life, whether it be the economy, a new movie (because anyone who knows me, knows that I LOVE going to the movies), celebrity gossip, ongoing events in the news, a new book (by the way, I highly recommend “Something Borrowed”), etc…
All I can say is that I promise to write in this little blog when I have the time and a good idea. (Whether it be the randomness I wish to get back, or just a simple log about my workout.)
I was going through some old college photos and came across this fun pic. This was taken on April of 2008. It tells such a fun little story, that I figured I’d help my Bestie relive that wonderful day…. Tanya, don’t hate me! LOL
This is my Best Friend Tanya.

Awe Birthdays…… Don’t you just love them!
Yesterday I was mentally exhausted from work. I went home and decided to download some videos that I had recorded from this past weekend. Being a fairly new Mac convert, I have not had the opportunity to play with a lot of the features. Once I downloaded all of the video clips, I went ahead and launched iMovie. Now, I have seen my coworkers use this software application but I had never tried it due to my huge impatience for learning technology. Random to hear I know, especially for the fact that I work for a technology company and am completely consumed by the tech industry.
Anyways, it takes me about 30 minutes to put together a little compilation of my nephews birthday party and you know what?? I really enjoyed doing it! Also, I found that if I practiced a little more, that I may actually get pretty good at this editing thing. So this little video put me on a Social networking rampage. I posted it on YouTube, then tagged it on my Twitter and Facebook pages, and now I’m blogging about it. It made me realize, how people like the “YouTube Princess” (blog I posted earlier) get such crazy exposure soooo fast! So it got me thinking. Could I do the same??? Looks like the beginning of a n experiment for me =)
I changed my Twitter page background as well as my YouTube page to make it more appealing. Now if I can get the right content, I think I will be on my way. I am thinking about participating in the “One day in a Life” project that YouTube is launching tomorrow. I think it is a great place to start and then see where it goes. Stay tuned…
For anyone who doesn’t know about that project, it launches in 8 hours and is only for 1 day. Check out the link for more info
For now, I will just keep my little Family Made movie posted.
