In high school, I let the fear of people judging me and laughing at me stop me from doing a lot of things I wanted to do. I didn’t post youtube videos even though I filmed them all the time, and I tried to start a blog but gave up many times. I wanted to stay hidden so that people from my school would never find out about these things. Because I got teased and made fun of for a lot of things, even by friends, and sometimes it really affected me. This was something I didn’t want to be mocked for, it’s something I’m passionate about and love doing, and being teased about things you love is the worst feeling ever.
So, I started many blogs and each time, I gave up. But as my senior year came to an end, I realized something. Life is too short. Life is too precious to worry about other people and to not take risks and do what you love. So, when I had time, I sat down and started this blog. I am still thinking of names, because I haven’t thought of one that I absolutely love yet, but we’re getting there.
My blog is slowly growing, and I truly enjoy sitting down and writing posts. I have 15 posts scheduled right now, and I am writing one, sometimes two new posts every day, while only posting 3 times a week. My posts vary from short to long, deep and thought provoking to silly little thoughts of mine, I love the freedom of writing whatever I want, and of sharing my thoughts with the world. I have always loved expressing myself and discussing things I love with others, and this blog lets me do just that. And I also get to make a ton of new friends!
Each day, I plan new post ideas in my journal, post on my instagram, interact with other bloggers, write new posts, and I am loving every minute of it! I don’t know what will happen in the future with this blog because of school and life can get busy sometimes, but I hope to continue it for a while.
If you want to try something new, do it! It could end up being the best experience of your life. I love writing this blog and it is a wonderful new experience, and I hope to continue growing it for a little while longer:)
