10 Days of Top 10 Posts: #10

Is it summer yet?
Is it summer yet?

Hard to believe it’s already December and while there’s clearly still time left in 2013, I present the “Out of the Wilderness Top 10 Posts of the Year”! If doing this before December 31st rubs you the wrong way, then I encourage you to bookmark the page and revisit it on new year’s day. Hey, that’ll give you something fun to do at halftime of any of the 75 football games going on that day. Out of the Wilderness had 122 new posts this year, which is roughly 1 every 3 days. The list below, though… it encompasses the entire Wilderness catalog. So before I get all misty-eyed, let’s get to it!

#10: Ten Signs You’re More Redneck Than You Think

More about the post: I’ll let you in on a little secret… I love lists. So around the time of this particular post, I was making lists of other Top 10’s also. I don’t know what got into me! So anyway, this post includes a few things I’ve noticed over the years about people who are typically considered rednecks. And this was before I ever started watching Duck Dynasty! I’m sure there would be a few more additions had I typed it up after getting hooked on DD.

Check back tomorrow for #9…

2010, It’s Not You It’s Me

Dear 2010,
It’s not that I don’t like you. We spent so much time together, 365 days to be exact, and most were fun. I believe our relationship has run it’s course, though. Honestly, I’ve found someone newer who won’t take no for an answer. Sounds familiar, doesn’t it? 2009 still hasn’t forgiven me. I knew this would happen all along, but evenso, I was happy with you. Now there’s a knock on the door and I don’t have a choice but to answer. What mystery and promise awaits? A lot more than you have to offer at this point*. It’s time to say goodbye but I’ll always remember the fun times we had together. Unfortunately, I kept getting mixed signals from you. You’re hot, then you’re cold. You’re awesome, then annoying. I’m not accusing you of being bi-polar, but it’s something to think about. I’ll miss you, 2010. It’s been real. It’s been fun. And it’s been real fun. But I need something greater than you.

*We can be Facebook friends, though.
