Who Am I?
“So, tell me a little about yourself.”
This is when I usually freeze. Wait, who am I? Am I really that boring of a person?
My mind races. Well, I went to school here, I studied this, I work here…but even I am rolling my eyes at myself in my head. That is not who I am.
Sometimes, certain words come to mind. I’m a writer. Yes, yes. I am a health enthusiast. And an environmentalist. Yes. Oh, I am a young professional!
I think these words of myself almost absent minded, then I realize I have not written in a long time. What kind of writer doesn’t even write? So here I am, about to begin proving myself right. I have officially changed the question to Who do I want to be?
If you want to be an interesting or successful person, ask yourself what that means. To me, it means I am actually acting on what I claim interests me, and not on what I truly know does not. I have realized that I have never been happier than when I am improving myself by becoming who I want to be.
So, what is this blog about? I’m not sure, what are blogs supposed to be about? Is this a blog? I mean, I am not getting paid for this, can I write as I please? Wait, it needs to satisfy an audience. I am not going to lie; I spent about 5 minutes searching “what to write in my first blog” and many articles with sophisticated how-to’s and step-by-step answers came up, and I was soon bored. Why am I trying to fit a mold? More importantly, what am I trying to do here?
Simple. I am not promoting a business, I am not writing a how-to’s, I am not trying to keep you up to date on national news, and I am not writing a humor column. I am defining myself as “writer” (by actually writing).
Let’s see how this goes.
