Hello all! This post is going to be all about honesty; hopefully.
I know I have been a total slacker the last half of the year. I explained that I was busy at school, but that was only half true.
I also explained that I had a lot of other things going on in my life, but I didn’t want to splay it all out here for the world to read. Here’s why:
Do you ever surf around your homepage and look at all the news articles? Well, I do too and I would occasionally read about, ohhh let’s see, ummm, 10 things that could keep you from getting a good-paying job. The article might say things about what you should and should not post on your facebook and/or blog. Be aware of what pictures your posting, the content you write, etc, because once on the internet it’s there for life and it could keep you from your dream job. Ooooo, scary.
This kind of stuff keeps me from sharing about me and what’s happening on my side of the street because who likes to be judged? So I try to keep it on my writing and superficial crap. It’s also hard to write about something while you’re going through it because things aren’t quite clear yet and some things can be terrifying.
Well, it’s just not cutting the mustard for me anymore. Life is happening over here and it’s not just school. Sure we take trips and vacations and all that fun stuff, but shit happens that isn’t all that great either and I don’t mind sharing it with the world because it’s who I am and what I’m made of.
If I don’t get a job as a result of what I’m posting, well then I guess that’s all the better because I wouldn’t have wanted to work there anyway. Besides the fact that shit happens in everyone’s life no matter who you are, and I don’t mind sharing it, so that people can see that you can really get through anything and still have a good time through it.
In all honesty my path has taken a different direction as a result of my life experiences in the last year. I love to write and I miss posting here and connecting with people, but I have been afraid to share that because I don’t want to lose my writer pals.
From this day forward, this blog will be about a plethora of things. I cannot pin point one topic or niche. It’s not how I’m wired. It will be about whatever I feel like telling you, good, bad or indifferent. I’m not holding back anymore. If I am to be judged and shunned, then so be it. But I’ll be judged and shunned while being honest.
I don’t live a typical life and I don’t have a typical past. But I don’t think any of us do.
I don’t want this post to be too long and drawn out, I just wanted to prepare you guys for a bit of a change here. I’m still me, I’m still writing, but there is a lot more to me than that, and I would like to share if you’re willing to listen.
I’ll catch everyone up on the last year of my life, which isn’t all that exciting, but it’s what makes me who I am.
