Life, Facebook and Other Randomness

It’s 5am and time to write out some randomness.

Random thoughts for today…

Surgery Update
As you may or may not have read in a previous post I had surgery last month. It was not major surgery, but it was surgery that needed to happen before I got much sicker and the infection got much worse.

I am happy to say today that the hole in my body from the surgery has finally healed and closed up entirely. It healed well and without complications. I took very good care of it the surgeon said, so thankfully in that I avoided any infections that could have happened in the process.  I have a large scar in it’s place. I am happy to not be taking care of it on a constant basis and to be bleeding constantly as I was before the surgery. It also made me very sick for a while, as the infection was in my body and causing me all sorts of problems.

Now that it’s healed up, I’ve had some bouts of nausea, vomiting and sickness that may or may not be related to the recovery, but overall I am doing much much better.

I do have a Facebook page for, I do not post on it very much. In truths I am not entirely sure what I want to post there, but I know from following other pages that I do not want to be annoying to the people that follow the page. So when I do post, I try not to post too much to read or too often. People like to glance over things, not read a novel and they don’t like to be bombarded with too much stuff either.

On a related topic though.. I have had a personal facebook page for around seven years now but I am not a very active facebooker. I post jokes, repost other page posts, funny stuff mostly and sometimes news. Occasionally I post pics from games I play or other related things. Usually I just repost funny things I see from other places or gaming stuff. I am not one of those people that keeps a live journal on facebook of my personal every day life. Sometimes I write something, but mostly I just chat privately with friends for more personal topics.

There is one thing about me that doesn’t seem so common with others, is that I do take the term “friends” literally and only add people that I know and trust and would call a friend on some level. I don’t add people that I do not talk to on a regular basis and essentially don’t add anyone I don’t know.

I am a very private person by nature – which is kind of a funny thing to say for someone who blogs about their personal life on occasion and blogged for many years when I was younger too.

In that, I occasionally get requests from people who want to be on my personal facebook page. This comes in email and through the facebook page.

I have thought a lot about this topic and am not so sure I want to open my personal page up to the entire world to be on there for various reasons. I know people are just being kind and sincere in their requests and are probably very nice people. I just don’t know really how to go about that. I have made friends through who are on that list of friends though, people I have known for years and chatted in email and on the chat boards for a long time when I had them up and running. I am not even sure why anyone is interested in truths. Most of what I write goes here in the blog. I do not do much writing on facebook and the things I do talk about.. I’m not so sure would interest people since I am into things now that I do not/have not talked about much before on the site. It is a topic for me to think about. If you have thoughts on that, feel free to comment below.

Mr. Spider Origins
Speaking of Facebook, my original first writings about Mr. Spider started on facebook about three years ago. I would write these funny posts for friends and they were such a big hit with people. These letters to Mr. Spider began when I moved to a location that has more spiders than usual and still does.

All of the stories you read, while edited to be dramatically humorous, are actually based off of real things that have happened to me in my encounters with various spiders. I decided to gather up all of my previous stories I wrote on Facebook and publish them here for others to enjoy, while writing new ones as I have new encounters with spiders.

I have gotten only good responses about the Mr. Spider posts and intend to keep writing more of them and keep publishing them, hopefully at least once per month.

I seem to write about mostly serious topics here on the blog, so I think some humor to break up the seriousness is a nice thing indeed.

Spicy Soup
I know this is pretty random, but I love spicy foods. I have recently added Ghost Pepper sauce to my list of things I eat on a regular basis, that is how much I love spice. That stuff is amazing, I might add. I also have always enjoyed cup of noodles soup – I know I know.. it has very little nutritional value but it is just one of those Things I enjoy.

In that, combining spice and noodle soup is definitely a happy thing for me. So I have to mention a soup I tried only a couple of months back but I have really grown fond of it. I am having it for breakfast right now as I write this post so you know.. I can’t help but to write about it. Nongshim Shin Noodle Black is a cup of noodles that is amazing and outstanding. The creamy spice flavoring is one of my favorites I have ever tasted. Definitely not for someone who is sensitive to spice though, it has a nice spicy hot flavor to it. For my taste buds it is perfect, but if a person doesn’t normally have spicy things I am not so sure they would enjoy it.

Anyway, I just had to mention my most favorite soup of the moment. Fall is here and winter is well on the way so I am especially enjoying having soup at this time of the year.

In Closing…
Overall, things are going okay for me. I have been meditating, which has helped with some of my anxieties, and I also try to stay focused on more positive things in life and the things I am grateful for in this world. I try to keep a distance from poisonous people and am holding close to my heart those that are true friends.

I have dreams and wants for the future, that is something I have not had for many years. Some people suck the life out of you, unfortunately my health and energy bar was drained away for a long time before I realized things needed to change.

It is my sincerest desire to make the next 35 years happier and more fulfilling than the first 35 years of my life. In 2011 everything changed. In 2012 everything changed again and I might add.. for the better of everything. Life has begun. I still have a lot to work through, but I am not walking into my future blind.. nor am I walking into my future alone.

Enough of me for now.

A little reminder to live a little.. be unique, be different, don’t conform. Paint your art on a canvas in the dark, eat your soup with a fork, wear your slippers out to your favorite restaurant, and most definitely… take care of yourself and those you love.

    Hi Kat, I don’t know if you would remember me but I was a member of TSS years ago. Feels great to read your blog post. I feel like you and your website were such a huge part of my childhood, I find it hard to let the memories go. I appreciate so much the fact that you still have the site up and that you’re back to blogging. Reading your logs gave so much enjoyment. You have a new regular reader for this blog :) Looking forward to your future posts! Wish you all the best, Kat.

    • Jiro,
      I do remember you! Good to see you back here again!
      Your comments touch me, I so appreciate that. That is very kind of you. :)
      I hope you do enjoy the blog, even if it’s not about subjects of the past, I hope it can be still something enjoyable to you. It is new territory to me to write without a main topic so I am just feeling my way through it right now. It is nice to be writing here again! :)
      Take care, Jiro,
