My list of 100.

August 8th, 2010 Reposting my first blog entry. Hope you like it. ~ J

This chick is so cool. She's thinking about you. ❀
I can see you. Just tell me everything is going to be okay. It will! ´¯`»¸¸.·☆

I’ll be perfectly honest, this is my first post and my first blog. I have been faithfully reading some excellent blog sites and came across a nice guy who recommended some list making to help with decisions. This is a challenge to help you get your thoughts straight. The way it works is this: you write a list called 100 things, then you write something that has been on your mind lately, that is a decision you have to make.

There are only two rules. First you must start and complete the list all with in one sitting. Next you must start all of your 100 entries with the number 100.

I’ll give you an example of one I just made. Good luck and have fun.

Turning the page ~ a new day, a new dawn.

Hi guys, hello!

Welcome to my blog. If this is your first time here, be sure to bookmark this page, or follow me on twitter at jbuliesblog. If you are a returning visitor, well, hello and welcome back. So nice to see you.

How have you been? How has your life been lately?

Even the what you can't imagine is possible. ♡ ㄥ❀∨モ
Even the unimaginable is possible. ♡ ㄥ❀∨モ

I’ve been feeling fortunate lately because of a couple of things. First, because I’m surrounded by an awesome group of family and friends. I feel blessed that that this connection extends to across of the world. Second, because I enjoy writing and love the sharing aspect of it. I’ve written now for oh so many years. It’s nice to let people peek into my life.

I like writing mostly because I get compliments or comments. Also, I enjoy like writing for the sake of writing. It truly is wonderful to read a compliment when someone says I love your blog. Thank you.

The comments people leave me on my blog make me smile.

I think about them alot. One of my friends who has been blogging for a few years gets at least 50 comments on every post she writes. I average between two and 15. I’d say maybe eight? My biggest comment day was my painting give away where I got about 60 comments.

You can read some of my favorite comments to your right on my side bar. I liked one comment that said I had a nice brain. Thank you. Another told me that my writing style was like sitting at the table and having a talk with a friend. Again thank you.

I think it’s good time we turn the spot life off of me and on to you so some of you can get to know each other better.

People who read my blog.

I can feel the resonance of the clinging bells.You shall forever remain in my heart. ♡

My mom, my children, my husband, my friends, my family, my students and my cat read my blog. My cat is forced to. She likes to jump on my tummy as I write and purr while she digs her claws as if she’s making bread.

My little cat Thea, she’s getting so old. I think she must be about 13 now. When she was a little baby kitten she sucked on her tail all rolled up into a ball. She loves Christmas paper. She loves my kids. They love her.

Who are my readers?

If stars could talk they'd each say they felt a thought about you.

A lot of my readers are people who I have met who are fellow bloggers. The way we met is by interacting on comments on blogs we all read. I was happily surprised to find out how extremely helpful and generous this group is. They are often hosting free give aways. If you need help, they often explain certain terminology. Sweet and generous blog writers I have met are willing to write you long letters, and answer numerous emails to explain in detail how to adjust a button or sidebar.

Another group of readers are my students. They are so sweet, shiny and bright. They inspire me and keep me young. I especially like being with them and seeing pictures of their people they like or love. I truly love getting a comment from them. When I walk into class, I sometimes get pulled aside and told, I left a comment on your blog. When I look at your eyes as I teach, I remember how kind you were to drop over here and leave me some inspiration. Thank you.

I have a big group of readers from my high school. Hey guys! It’s crazy how in touch we are able to be with facebook. I love looking at pictures of your families and lives through my little window. I have reconnected with so many people who have touched my life in the past and continue to do so today.

I also have a group of readers who are expats like myself. I think we sort of mull together because we live with similar stories. We all miss the same things we had in back home. We all get a kick out of discussing the differences between nations and nationalities. I try to not speak too much about politics. Maybe I should more.

Then of course, I have my new facebook friends which seems to be the quickest growing list these days. Oh, and my sports friends too. Ahh, heck, who can classify all the years of your life and all of the people you have on your list with a blog post. Who am I kidding? I would like to say however how extremely proud I am of you on your life endeavors. So many of you have set out to accomplish life goals and have come through with them truly shining the light that God has given you. Well done. Shine.

What about you?

If you were to move to another country, what kinds of things do you think you would miss? What do you think makes your country special? What are some of the innovative items you have come across that you like? Any new things going on out there or business as usual?

Have a great day and thanks for visiting. God bless.
