I know, I am twenty-something-year-old writing a blog. What else is new. I have actually had this domain for almost a year now not knowing what to do or where to start. I have all these ideas that fill my head but when I come here to write I feel sooooo lame. So why did I do it?
Because I have anxiety about things that are happening right now in our world, in my own little world. Because I am afraid that my Facebook and Instagram make it look like I live this life with no struggle and that’s just gross. Because I love to write. Because I have made it my goal not to try to change the entire world but to somehow impact someone else’s world and maybe by writing I can do that. Because I like to be real and raw. Because sometimes I just need to let it out.
I am also hoping that maybe James can share on here too. He is such a big part of my life. The good and bad in life happen with him. We are constantly trying to make our relationship go round and also constantly questioning everything. We actually decided to buy this domain name together- the reality is I am a dictator and me giving him deadlines and things to write about (while in my head I pretend I am running a top selling magazine) probably would not be all that fun for him. But just maybe when he feels like he has something to share, he will come here too.
I am not exactly sure what this will be about just yet. The reality is my life is not worth writing about. Average day:
- Wake up
- Take dog out
- Get ready for work
- Walk the dog for an hour
- Take MARTA to work
- Take MARTA home
- Drink a smoothie while watching Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune
- Try to get dog to cuddle with me but instead watch him chase his own tail or attack his leg
- Go to bed
So yeah, don’t feel bad about your life! And Yes, I am sure you are dying to read a blog like this. However, I struggle with a lot of things that I think a lot of other people struggle with so I am thinking maybe we can all sort it out here together? Maybe writing the things I disagree with on Facebook doesn’t always feel right and Twitter only provides 140 characters so I have this spot? My goal is to write three times a week consistently and maybe get the courage to actually tell people about it.
