When All the World is At Your Fingertips…

… You Stay At Home More Often Than Not.

I’ve been living in a small town for just about a week now. And by small town, I mean the no-streetlights type of community where you might expect a teenager to spend time at their grandparent’s over the summer and meet the love of their life. If life were a movie, that is. I spent the majority of the time up in our cabin with Dad, since I haven’t seen him in a few months. Now, however, I am at my grandparents. Cliche, I know.

It’s day four, and I’m not sure how long I’m going to be here for. To be honest, I don’t know much of anything at this point.

One thing I have picked up on though, is this overwhelming sense of community. I know I’ve only been here for a few days, and although I’ve been coming here since I was a youngling, I’ve never gotten involved much with the locals around here. I hate meeting new people, remember?

Or rather, I just dislike people. Socializing is fun, I lie through my tears.

If you’re new to this blog, start here.

Let me ask you guys a question. Why the heck would I go on the internet, bare my soul to complete strangers, and freely expose all the deeply personal things that are happening in my life? Why would I talk about my life in the first place? Why would I expect anyone to care? What’s the point of me starting up something like this in a world where billions of blogs exist and very few people actually get noticed?

I’m going to tell you a bit about myself here. It’s one thing to read my posts and see what’s going on in my life, but it’s another altogether to know me in person. Outwardly, I’m rather loud. I talk a lot, I do a lot of things that most people would have too much shame to do, and I’m rather blunt. I’m polite, I have a heck ton of friends, and I get complimented on a daily basis. I can’t see anyone without them either telling me how cute I am, how funny I am, or how proud they are of me because I’m super inspiring and blah blah blah. Basically, I’m charming, someone everyone really likes, and a person that people either want to be with, or strive to be like.

Awesome.

On the inside, I’m a freaking mess.

My guess is that you are too.

UPDATES AND THAT TRASH

200_s

I wanted to take a moment and fill everyone in on a few changes that are going to be happening around here. As you may know, my blog is a work in progress, and I’m basically always sitting at home on my laptop, trying to come up with more ideas that’ll make this place even cooler. The point of my blog, after all, is not only to talk about my experiences in life, but rather, to provide my readers with resources and support while they go through their experiences too. Which, of course, is you.

The biggest thing I’m going to be rolling out here is a new content page. I’m actually super excited about this. The content page is going to be full of free resources and other things I’ve either found or written myself to hopefully give you guys out there some good tools. Plus, it’s just going to be really fun.

This Blog Starts at the End

Oh endings, don’t we just love them? A chapter coming to a close, moving on with your life, heading down a different path, and all that other sentimental trash? When one door closes another one opens, and blah blah blah.

Let’s cut the junk here. Unless you’re talking about the season finale to a show like Say Yes to the Dress, endings suck. They do. We find stability in things like relationships, jobs, houses, or even TV series. They offer us a constant in our otherwise chaotic and uncontrollable lives. Maybe you don’t know if the world will survive another day without aliens coming down and killing all forms of life, but at least you know Desperate Housewives should be on at 7pm on Tuesday evenings.

To be honest, I have no idea when Desperate Housewives is on.
