Well, I love writing: journal, poetry, prose, sometimes even academic. This blog is mostly for myself: I’ve kept journals since I was 12 and writing has been a great way to make sense of what I am feeling or what has happened in my life. I always feel better after writing because it’s like talking to a really close friend. I figured that maybe my typed thoughts would help somebody somewhere, so why not share them?
What’s this blog about?
I started seriously writing in this blog when I was in a transitional period between student and conventional working adult. Life been a really interesting, emotional, inspiring, and revealing journey. I’ve gone through rejection, doubt, fear, and complacency. But I’ve also experienced happiness, fulfillment, and a deeper and truer sense of self. I know that there are other 20-somethings (or anybody else for that matter) going through the same thing. I hope that my thoughts, these little glimpses into my life, will help you realize that you are not alone in this. It’s okay to not know what’s going to happen next, or take that soul-sucking job only to quit months later, or have your friends get married while you try to find your better half. It’s okay that you feel angry or lost or confused about your life. I sure as hell have been, and I know I’ll feel this way again. (Emotions come in cycles.) It’s okay that these things happen to you, because they happen for a reason. They teach you that you should listen to your gut and follow your heart. They set you up for some of the most transformative years of your life.
At least, that’s what Buzzfeed and ThoughtCatalog tell us, no? Well, this blog is for you and me to go through that journey together to find out for ourselves. Allons-y!
