get to know etley.

i miss myspace. but wait, before you judge me, you have be honest with me & yourself.

i get home from school. log into AIM. log into myspace. turn on some napster tunes. open microsoft word. open up my english binder & book.

start up chats with all available friends on AIM. scroll through the bulletin board on myspace. find a survey. copy. paste. start filling out that bad boy.

mom walks up behind me. rapidly click on the microsoft word tab, type away, as if writing my english paper. she’s satisfied. she walks away.

minimize microsoft word. continue chatting & filling out myspace survey. the world is right again.

so, here i am. an adult. i think i still have a myspace account, although i haven’t signed on in years. & right now, in this moment, i want to fill out a survey. a “get-to-know-me” survey.

but first, a few life updates, to set the mood:
