And So It Begins

Well, this is the hardest part I suppose. Starting something. Kind of like how people start each year with all of these crazy pointless New Year’s resolutions that they know they’ll never follow through on. So I guess this is where I give an intro, a synopsis of sorts… to let you know what you’re reading and what I’m going to be putting up here for you to read. Truth be told I haven’t thought quite that far ahead. I know I want to talk about my life with all of its intangible messy string of events and circumstances that don’t stop until they’ve well, you know… stopped.

Now a little about me. I’m not going to spoil all of the fun just yet because then what would be left to write about? The future? Overrated. I like to live in the present, maybe a bit in the past when things start to get out of my control. All of my friends can make me laugh otherwise there’s no point in getting along. I have both of my parents and am blessed with two demonic younger siblings (both boys, God help me). I’m a junior in college but technically a senior- but not really- it’s a little complicated. I’m studying psychology because I can have one conversation with a person (or most people) and read their behavior like Aaron frickin’ Hotchner, and if you don’t know who that is go get on Netflix and start watching Criminal Minds so you don’t look like an idiot the next time someone busts out a reference. I went abroad this summer, and it changed me. Completely. Sort of. At least that’s what I like to say when I dramatically emphasize to my fellow students why they should study abroad. It definitely accentuated my personality in the sense that I was already a well versed individual who enjoyed new and exciting experiences. But now I crave those experiences and the feeling of complete peace they bring.

I’ve seen some crazy things in my few years on this Earth. I’ve been through a lot more than most people my age or even twice my age have, and it has shaped the way I see the world. Colors are brighter, my sense of awareness is heightened so that I can really really see and appreciate everything around me. Everything in this wonderfully complex and roller coaster of a life. And that’s what I’m going to write about. Of course I didn’t figure that out until about 20 seconds ago- as long as it took me to write the last few sentences. I want to share my stories- my adventures. The good, the bad, and the ugly.

So stick around, maybe I’ll get the hang of this blogging thing.
