DE-STRESS = UNPLUG

If you are in Europe or coming to Europe (Lisa, Emily, Kris) this is not for you. I realise we need to organise things.

TO ALL:

I AM GETTING APPROX 15 EMAILS A DAY AND IT IS DRIVING ME NUTS....WALNUTS, COCONUTS...all kinds!
EVERY MINUTE OF EVERYDAY I AM CHECKING MY MAIL OR TRYING TO FIND SOMEPLACE TO CHECK IT! I HAVE 141 DELETED MESSAGES IN MY TRASH CAN. THE LAST STRAWS ARE TODAY WHEN I AM AT MCDONALDS WRITING EMAILS INSTEAD OF GOING TO AN ART MUSEUM AND WEDNESDAY WHEN I WAS ON THE INTERNET FOR 6 HOURS AND DIDN'T GO TO BED UNTIL 4AM!

So therefore.........

ON A REGULAR BASIS I'LL JUMP ONTO THE INTERNET AND MAKE BLOG ENTRIES WITH LOTS OF PHOTOS AND EXPLAINATIONS TO KEEP EVERYONE SATISIFIED! YAY! JUST LIKE BEFORE ONLY MORE OFTEN BECAUSE I WILL HAVE THE TIME!!! I'LL REPLY TO COMMETS AND PEOPLE ARE MORE THEN WELCOME TO WRITE EMAIL STYLE COMMENTS AND PRETEND THEY ARE SENDING AN EMAIL (if it makes you feel better). MAKE IT AS LONG AS YOU WANT. I ENJOY GETTING COMMENTS ON MY BLOG AND YOU DON'T HAVE TO TELL ME THAT IT LOOKS LIKE I AM HAVING A GREAT TIME ALL THE TIME....YOU CAN TELL ME WHAT YOU'RE UP TO TOO IF YOU WANT. THIS THE PURPOSE OF THE BLOG....COMMUNICATION.

SEE THE PREVIOUS ENTRY FOR AN EXAMPLE OF CARA REPLYING!!!! THE NEXT TIME YOU JUMP ON MY BLOG CHECK THE COMMENTS YOU MADE...I WILL HAVE REPLIED THERE BECAUSE I LIKE YOU!

THIS WOULD HAPPEN IN JANUARY ANYWAY. AFTER I FINISH HERE IN LYON WHEN I START BACKPACKING I WILL NOT HAVE NET ACCESS SO LET'S ALL JUST BUMP IT FORWARD A BIT.

I LOVE YOU ALL AND LOVE HEARING FROM YOU BUT.....

TO DE-STRESS MYSELF I AM UNPLUGGING.

SEE YOU HERE!!!

Hey Cara, I haven't really been checking my email either but I have been in LA for 2 months now and have had a great time so far. I haven't checked the blog in a while but it seemed the last tiime I check things were going well for you. I should actually be in France in April on tour with the Actual and a French band called the Sexy Pops so I will let you know when we get that figured out. Talk to you soon

You will need to write nonie and the rest of the family and tell them that you will not be writing.

I think you should delete this...not very nice...and does make us worry about your mental state...perhaps you had a bad day? Not getting enough sleep?

Maybe just answer the emails with a tiny note that says..'go to my blog'? Or, just not reply to those with whom you do ot have a close and personal relatinship...

Hey there chicky babe,
Not good to hear your stressed out. Filtering is always very therapeutic. I think your doing a good thing. Your overseas, why should you spend all that precious time on the internet. I promise I won't email you unless its absolutely necessary.
Oh, and i just felt like telling you and everyone who will read this that I have my last exam tomorrow for my undergrad!! Yey!! Michelle and I just spent the day studying virology, it was great. If you were there too there is no way the three of us would have got anything done!
I'll call you this week after I get some money and we'll discuss dates.
Ciao Ciao
Lisa.

Hey Cara!! Toally understand why you can not write everyone back!! You go girl!! This is just a different form, and you have all your responses on line and documented...part of the whole journal thing...cool. Found gloves so do not worry. The exchange rate on the card is really good. I checked historically and the charges are very close to the exchange rate after you convert to dollars.

Love Daddy

Hi DADDY, thanks for your support with the mail decision. I am glad you understand. Horray for gloves!!!!
