an excerpt from a private post

this is so like a diary post and i don’t know if it’s appropriate to make public comments about other people like this, even if it’s anonymous. i don’t think either of them know i even have a blog but if they ever were aware of it, if i ever shared a link, it wouldn’t be too hard to find.
i know people who did get fired for writing things about their bosses and co-workers… i don’t give a crap about my teachers (in fact i hate them more and more with every day i think of them) but i wouldn’t want to hurt my chances of getting in a musical… or employment i suppose.
i’ve probably said the same or worse about these people in the past though… maybe it’s time to delete this blog.

DRAFTS!? help!

I was typing the header for todays ACTUAL blog post, and I got up to “External Hard Drive, ” and I went to put an apostrophe to put the next word in, when I hit enter by accident!
It said something about saving it – at first I thought it had published – and something about previewing drafts.

I decided I didn’t want to do the whole post now anyway, so I filled out the full title, clicked on ‘save draft’, and got out of it.
I cannot find my drafts anywhere!
I Googled ‘wordpress help drafts’ and found a post of someone saying their drafts had disappeared – someone said if its not under ‘Recent Drafts’ or ‘My Drafts’ its gone, and I’m sitting here¬† yelling “I DON’T EVEN HAVE A MY DRAFTS!”
Where the frick do I find this stuff???????????
I suppose it doesn’t really matter, but I’d like to know how to access and save drafts if I want to save an actual post in the future.

I HAVE used drafts on WordPress for iPhone, and saved like two actual posts as drafts, that I probably will never publish, but I can’t see those on my computer either.
Wordpress, you kinda suck right now.

Sky rocketing views – well, for me, anyway.

I’ve had this sudden jump in views just since yesterday!
I got 37 views yesterday, 28 on my sewing post!
Today I have 20 views, 14 being for the sewing post.
I also receive a lot of views for my glory box/hope chest posts, but that was like an gradual increase, I don’t recall jumping so quickly, but now in two days my sewing post is almost at the same number of views!

All of the views seem to be linking to me somehow from another blog – the only reason I can think why is that it has a small banner in the corner that cycles through random wordpress sites, I’m just surprised so many people clicked on me, or that they even clicked on that banner so much.

In conclusion, ARTS AND CRAFTS FOR THE WIN!
Oh, and people that link random wordpress sites, although I find that a bit strange and unusual.

‘Latest Posts’ lies to me! (and why I couldn’t be religious)

I check my global dashboard, and use the ‘latest posts’ section down the bottom to find recent and interesting things to comment on.
But I clicked one post (about lethal injections as execution) and it was from 2006!!!
And I was frustrated, because it was a topic I was interested in, but I didn’t want to comment on a post so old.
It also made me concerned I had commented on other old posts without realising it.
And it often seems to show a lot of blog posts from the same people – at first I think they’re fake copy-paste posts from spammers, but they seem to be fairly legitimate, but how could they have all been posted so recently? maybe they’re all old posts!
Does ‘latest’ actually mean LATE-est to WordPress? as in they were made ages ago?

 

Anyway, on a very different topic that popped into my head for little reason.
On my phones ‘notes’ I have some thoughts for my blog that I haven’t posted, or have posted later but forgotten to use my notes as a reference O.o; lol
I wrote this after my Christian friend said something about the ‘unimportant’ or ‘less important’ parts of The Bible.
And one of them is ‘I could never be religious’ (thinking of Christianity in particular)
It says;

“I just could not be Christian.
I think a Christian should believe every word in The Bible – not what they chose to be important or unimportant, hello, it’s the fucking WORD OF GOD, I would think it’s all important!
But a lot of things it says in The Bible, I could not believe, because I think they’re wrong.
Truly, I believe, that The Bible is written by men (albeit, Saints or whatever, but MEN) and whether or not they had guidance from God or not, they would’ve put their own bias or opinion into what they wrote, or interpreted God’s word incorrectly, due to their own bias.
So, I cannot believe everything in The Bible, I would have to pick and choose, like all of the others do, to be happy with it.
But I could not be happy because I could not pick and choose! Who am I to pick and choose!?
If I was Christian, it would be fake, it would be a lie.
And it wouldn’t make me happy at all.”

I think I still believe all that now.
Keep in mind that was really written for me, not for other people.
A main point I dislike about religion, is that people of OTHER religions are going to Hell – they believe just as much and as hard as any one else, and they love their God, and live just and respectful lives… they believe that they have put their faith in the right thing… but they’re going to Hell? for having faith?
And also, that if I became a Christian, it would mean thinking that my mother and most of my family would be going to Hell, even though they are good, beautiful, amazing people… mostly :p

And, I watch a show called The Tudors, about Henry The 8th, and there was a lot of religious persecution going on around then.
People got burnt because, even though they believed in the same God as the people punishing them, they didn’t believe that consecrated bread became the flesh of God.
I’m with them, really – it’s symbolism.
And, as one ‘heretic’ woman (Anne Askew?) said, “I have read that God made man, but no where have I read that man can make God.”

If it was real, Jesus would be sitting in Heaven, pale, with chunks taken out of his arm, going “yeah, thanks a lot”.
And, if you are what you eat, then does that mean that Catholics are Jesus!? O.O;
Also, I like to imagine a women going to communion, being offered the¬†wafer, and going “I’m on a diet”.

WordPress for iPhone

I’m typing (or rather, tapping ;p) this up on my iPhone 3GS using a WordPress application I got from the AppStore.
I think it was made by Automattic.

But I’m kinda scared to use it because there were many, many bad reviews that said it crashed frequently when editing and posting, and you can lose everything you just wrote!
That is not good with my tendancy for big long rants, and I would be crushed and never blog again!

So far it seems easy enough to use, not too bad.
Just not sure if I can risk all my thinkings getting deleted.
I’m going to watch The Empire Strike Back Now, in the pyjamas I’ve been in all day.
I have a very thrilling life, don’t cha know!

 

EDIT:: Why does this have like my 4th highest views? c’mon, people, go look at something else (hopefully still on my blog ;D)
This post sucks, and you know what, so does the app =/ lol (well, for a little while, it seems fixed now, but whatever)
