HELLO, you wonderful, you!
As I sit here writing this, I feel compelled to tell you that while I am an avid writer, reader, texter, eater, photographer, and pretty much any other activity that you can add the suffix “-er” to (and even some that maybe you just shouldn’t), I am new to the whole keyboard-to-blog deal. For as long as I can remember, I have been writing something! [However, more of a pen-to-paper format.] From writing in a pretty journal with blue and purple butterflies on the cover when I was 10 years old; to a zebra print journal full of teenage angst in my
adolescence (I’ve never liked that word much); to a sophisticated, obscure, floral printed journal that I purchased from one of those modern chic printing companies that only produce here in the United States most recently. I adore the idea of writing about my ideas and feelings in one place. Never thinking that my ideas and feelings would want to be heard or read, for that matter, but as I recently found out, maybe they should be expressed.
As previously stated, I have never really shared my writing with anyone, but I have found that I express myself so much more fully in writing than I will allow in speaking. I am a “twenty-and-some-change” young woman from Texas. I am married and that alone seems to be an anomaly at my age these days. I got married at the age of 23 (and no, for all of those skeptics, or possibly just “curious” folks out there, I was not/am not/have not been pregnant). I find that it is hard for me to relate to people my own age, or some even older than I, and it is not because I think that I am ‘oh, so very special’, but rather that I am different, I’m in a different place in my life. I hope that this blog will allow those with similar interests, or possibly similar attributes to relate to someone who may not be in their immediate circle of friends, but is also a friendly outlet.
On that note, I am still a “twenty-and-some-change” –years old-young lady, and as most of you who have been there done that (and even you guys that haven’t quite gotten there yet) can venture or would guess, my life can be a bit everywhere. I have a full-time job, with a full-time crazy boss and some pretty insane coworkers. I have a husband that I would NOT go so far as to say is my “better half” as I think that we are more equal in that capacity, nonetheless, he is my rock and center. I have an amazing family that supports me in everything, even when I may not deserve it or may not have great reasoning for some of my choices. I am well-educated [if you consider having a couple of degrees ‘well-educated’ or not], I have been afforded numerous opportunities that I am forever grateful for. I am also, again, an avid reader, so part of my blog will be “what I’m reading now.” I go through life just like anyone else does! One day at a time, but as I always say: Life is for the living! I am going to do what I want and not think about what society says that I should be doing, and for that reason, I bring forth to you, you lovely you, my blog.
