Four Things

Posted on

This post has stuff about a previous relationship and eating meat. My perspective has changed

I recently watched the four things meme circle around the blogger community. It was pretty neat to read a little about all the folks-mostly web designers-that I look up to on a professional level. Every time I would see another one of the big bloggers get tagged I kinda wished that I’d get tagged too. (Getting tagged is like an invitation to complete the meme). But I never got the invite.

By definition a meme is exclusive. In this case it seemed that only the elite were doing it. I didn’t want to be a dork and just do it without being invited so I casually let it slip by. But today Mary discovered the meme and decided to post it, no tag, no shame.

It reminded me that the Internet is a huge place. Not everyone knows about the latest meme that some “web-design and usability specialist” comes up with; not everyone is a part of that community. Besides, it’s still fun for someone who’s never seen it before.
And so, for fun and to spite the old thing, I now present you with Four Things:
