So the journey started back in 2018, when I was an introverted kid who wrote poems and stories in her diary. My only audience was my sister. After a while, she encouraged me to start a blog, to walk out of my comfort zone. To share what I write with others. It was a baffling idea. Why the hell would I want others to read something I myself cringe to sometimes? Although I didn’t exactly welcome her suggestion with open arms, I did create a blog and posted my first poem, The Paths Of Amity, rantings about my best friend. And surely enough, I received more feedback and encouragement than I could have possibly expected. It was an experience unlike any other. People were reading what I wrote, people I didn’t even know personally. They read my poems and remarked on it, shared their ideas and expressed how much they liked it. I wasn’t just a nobody writing in my diary, confined to the walls of my room. In my own 12-year-old way, I was changing my world.
As time passed, I started writing stories and poems, learnt from other bloggers and shared my own ideas with them. Even though I think I’ve learnt quite a lot after joining the “blogosphere”, I still struggle with being consistent. I love writing poems but recently, I’ve been trying to write a book (because I finally had an idea worth writing about). I believe that writing is kind of like leaving something behind to be remembered by and that this blog is my first step to achieving that. I am still 15 and haven’t explored much at all, but I hope to travel and read a lot, meet many new people and develop ideas worth sharing. I hope to become an interesting person as I grow.
As a teenager trying to discover her self, I’ve been trying new things. I enjoy reading and binging to TV shows so you can always hit me up on that. I can’t bring myself to read classics (I try a lot, ok?) but I do enjoy other genres like fantasy a lot. I’ve fallen out of the habit of drawing but I still enjoy it every once in a while. I absolutely suck at sports but I’m a fairly fast runner. I also enjoy debating and arguing, especially about topics like “the perils of the education system” and “how school is just forcing me to abandon creativity” (The education system falls under the few topics I have strong opinions about, JIC you didn’t notice).
I’m kind of awkward sometimes, but then which teenager isn’t? And don’t answer with Malala Yousafzai, back when she was a teenager. You can’t help but admire her. I strive to be confident and empathetic like her but I’m still working on it. This year, I’ve been trying to be more grateful and to actually experience everything fully. And if you struggle with gratitude and living in the moment like I do, I would recommend that you watch Anne With An E. It’s a beautiful series and I developed a broader outlook on life because of it. It amazes me how we live in a world with so many resources to learn from others, and explore ourselves yet we waste them on spreading hate. Anyway, what I truly enjoy doing (besides nothing) is writing. Even though I spectacularly fail to write beautifully at times, even though sometimes I just can’t communicate my ideas the way I want to, writing is therapeutic. And I sincerely hope you enjoy reading what I write.
So yeah, that was pretty much it about me. If you’re new to this blog, do comment below so that we can talk, find common grounds and all that jazz.
If you like what I write, feel free to follow me! It encourages me a lot. If you don’t like what I write, pray tell me how I can improve.
Thanks for reading!
Have a great day!
