Who I am and Why I am Here

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.

  1. Travel
  2. Do something every day that frightens you
  3. 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:

  1. You graduated highschool, you finally did it
  2. You started this blog. Properly. Like for real this time.

Heres some little personal goals I have for this blog

  1.  Have a post once a week ready to go.
  2. Gain around 10 followers every 2 months.
  3. Make something of it

Yours

Nadine Turtle
