So I have no idea what I'm doing - I'm diving head first into the crazy blogging world. I am most excited to have some kind of journal, since I'm so bad at doing that. I also am all for anything that helps me stay connected to my friends and that connects me to new ones. I hope it will also serve as an ongoing update for friends and family back home in Utah.
I'm calling my blog "My Laughing Place" for a few reasons. One, a throwback to good old Disneyland, which is one of my favorite places. I loved the movie "Song of the South" when I was little. And as you hear on the Disneyland ride Splash Mountain, "Everybody has a laughing place." Your laughing place is that place in your head where you can go when you need an escape, a place where only happy things are allowed to exist, a place where you can go in your darkest moments and find something to laugh about. I hope this blog can be a laughing place for me and for anyone else that wants to get away.
Thanks to my friends for inspiring me to take the plunge. Please bare with me as I figure out how the crap this thing even works.
