Blogging is Not for Happy People

For some strange reason, the most interesting blog posts (and blogs in general) tend to be about something controversial or the trials and tribulations of life. There are so many blogs out there that are full of posts pointing out what's wrong in the political arena (domestic or international), what's wrong with religion (pick your god and/or denomination...there's a blog for you!), what's wrong with the blogger's life, or what's wrong with everyone else in the blogger's life. The major exception to this is, of course, Trep's blog, which manages to balance the good, the bad, the annoying, and the interesting.

The obstacle that this currently poses for this blog is that I'm happy. In the past handful of months, there've been some posts about shul-related frustrations, but that's really been the only irritant that might be of interest to others. I could post about why my classes aren't very satifactory this semester, but who would really care? I have a loving family, fabulous friends, a great boyfriend, an amazing internship...there's really nothing to kvetch about. It makes for a great life, but a terrible blog.

So, to those of you who actually read this, I'm open to suggestions for post topics. I'm coming up empty.
