I’m sitting at my desk, at the same job I’ve held (on and off) for the past 10 years, and I got this brilliant idea to start a blog. I do a lot of things on an overly excited whim, so naturally I bought a domain name and set up a page with WordPress. Now I’m sitting here neglecting my paid work, twiddling my thumbs, wondering what in the world I’m going to write about on here. I probably should have put more thought into that before diving in, huh?
All I know is that I wanted to write something. Anything.
I’ve found myself thinking about writing a lot lately. So here I am doing it. Why not a handwritten, private journal? Because what kind of millennial would I be if I didn’t put my thoughts and life out there on the internet for any random person to stumble upon?
I don’t have a very interesting life. Many nights are spent tucked into bed, scrolling through the weird parts of YouTube and ignoring impending deadlines, but I have my moments.
I’ve worked hard to become the person I am. A daughter. A student. A working professional. A wife. A mother. Human. It’s hard to maintain all of these people simultaneously, but we manage to skate by, mostly unscathed. Overall, I will say that I’m quite content with and proud of the life I have managed to build for myself (and with the help of others).
This blog will be my new challenge.
To create consistency within myself.
To update it frequently and to be honest in what it is I’m writing.
…hoping it will help me somehow.
