The last time I wrote on this blog was when I was 18. Nearly two years ago. Well, I think it’s time I gave this whole blogging thing a real chance.

I write a lot. In my journal, for class, shit, I even have a folder on my laptop of me just blabbing when I need to blab. I keep my writing to myself and it just results in everything being hidden. Sharing my writing, like I’ve said, terrifies me to an extent that I can even begin to try to put into words. For someone who is known to be outgoing and confident, this is perhaps the only instance in which I feel so shy.

But writing captures my essence. And words that I can constantly refer to are better remedies for what I’m feeling than conversations. Don’t get me wrong, I definitely do not harbor my sadness and bury my feelings in shame. I’ll tweet, FaceTime, rant, vent, whatever it is I need to do, but in the end, it’s insufficient. Writing, publishing, and feeling seen and heard is the best catharsis and I’m simply going to have to get over my fear and post.

So, the point of this post? There really isn’t one. I’m just talking. I’ll try to post weekly or every two weeks. There’s always something to talk about, right? I hope you all stay tuned. Share. Like. Do whatever it is you feel when you read my posts.

Stay blessed.
