100th Post Retrospect

The day has dawned. This is my 100th post. We have come on a long long journey to get here, starting December 25th, 2008. I don't really know what inspired me to start writing. I had no idea I would be blessed with all these wonderful followers, that, still, half the time I scratch my head at, and solemnly wonder where you all came from. But I really do have the honor to read all of your blogs, and I am so blessed. Especially the ones that glorify our Father God.

I never thought much about writing. I never thought it came this easy. I just started out, not knowing what I was doing. One of my favorite posts are my first ones though. The ones who only have about 1, or 2 comments, most likely from Emma, just being nice. Ah, I know, pathetic.

There are a million directions to take [my blog], and I have no idea in which one I shall go. I just know this, I want everything I write to be true, and it to be something that Jesus would appreciate.

Today, I spoke to my Great-Aunt Nancy, and she asked if I was still into Koala bears. This stopped me dead in my tracks. "Koala Bears?" I asked. "Yes, you know, last time I saw you [2 years ago], we talked and you said you were really into Australia".

I had honestly forgot about that. The point really has nothing to do with Australia, the point has everything to do with "phases". What if my skateboarding is just a "phase"? Like when I wanted to be a great actress?

What if my writing is a "phase"? It's all very disturbing to me, to think that I change before my own eyes, and I don't even notice it.

Another thing is, today, we were all together, and my Dad was showing off my modeling pictures. It was all very embarrassing. I was only a tee shirt model, for a local business, and I was 13. I looked SO LITTLE. I mean, I could not believe it. And don't think that I'm about to link the website to where you can view them. No way.

Um, I am tired. BUT!! All you "This is the story of a girl..." formerly "Unapologetic Apathy" formerly "The View From My Window" fans out there, help me celebrate this 100th post by telling me some of your favorite previous posts that I have written, and what you like/dislike about it, and my writing style. Because you CAN teach a old dog new tricks. ;)




  1. Congratulations, Jillian. :)

    I'm at 63 posts.

  2. Congrats! By the way, I love the headphones! ^_^

  3. Congrats, and here's to 100 more [or however many more you decide to do, ;)]

  4. Well, my favorite post to date is Story Tag. Twittering birds. That makes me smile. Also, the one with your video and the two part funny story posts. It's fun to cram into a van. I hope you keep writing and I can't wait for posts 150 and 200. Congrats!!!!

  5. I love how you always had alot to say... and I always just love your backrounds!!!! Congrats... i think i got to 100 on an old one, but only because it was only me and a best friend who saw it and we posted like 5 posts a day :D

  6. I had 100 on my old one but no one ever read it. So far on my new one I have 30 posts as of today :) my cousin said that a couple years ago I was really into ipods and I do not remember that at all. Allot of the time I hope that certain parts of my life are just 'phases'. Maybe they are. I'll just have to wait and see. Jesus loves you! :)

  7. Great job with that post! I love your insight!

I love hearing things that aren't my own pathetic echoes.
