There’s a lot of things I’ve wanted to do with my life in my short 18 years of being on this planet. The main thing I thought, was to be happy, the next was to chronicle my adventures.
No one wants to be left behind, forgotten about and in order to remain sane, and a little bit noticed, I’ve decided I’m going to start a blog, and possibly a YouTube channel to accompany it. I’m not really expecting it to get me anywhere, nor do I expect anyone to really read what I write. But I hope that my musing offer some solace in a world where, honestly, solace is hard to come by.
I thought I’d start this with my bucket list: the abridged version.
- Do something every day that frightens you
- Find something you love and never do it for free
These three things may seem silly to some, even a little naive, but I’d rather be naive once, then boring forever.
For those of you who arent interested in what current me has to say for future me. Theres a lot I want to achieve with this blog. I want to have a space where my creative and analytical works have a place to live, independently of me. I know that may sounds silly, but to me writing is something that shouldn’t be attached to a person once it’s published. Although this starts as something for me, by me, it ultimately ends up as a piece of media for others to enjoy, something that I have no problems with; something I encourage even. I want to hone this ability I’ve been given. When someone tells you ‘you’re good at this thing, keep doing it’. It’s almost hard to stop. Although it’s been a long time since anyone has said that to me (around 4 years to be exact) I still feel that same pride, every time I write something and others enjoy it. So for now, enjoy.
Before I take on this adventure I figured I should probably tell my future self what’s going on in my life right now.
First of all, you’re in a relationship. I know it’s crazy. Her names Paige, I know a girl, massive scandal. She’s cute and should be cherished for as long as you see fit. You’ve been together for a whole 2 months as of yesterday (23/11/2016). Secondly, you have pets, quite a few of them really. You have 2 cats, Turvy and Cordelia. Turvy is nearly 6 now, and has only really just started to become cuddley and happy again, after blackies death a year ago. Cordelia is everything you could want in a cat, fun loving, pretty and most importantly, very much yours. And of course, I couldnt talk about pets without mentioning your horse, Bundy, the big bundle of joy whose been in your life for nearly 5 years. It’s been tough, but youve got here.
Some other big hurdles that have occured this year:
- You graduated highschool, you finally did it
- You started this blog. Properly. Like for real this time.
Heres some little personal goals I have for this blog
- Have a post once a week ready to go.
- Gain around 10 followers every 2 months.
- Make something of it
