“Some people choose to see the ugly in this world, the disarray. I choose to see the beauty.” – Westworld

I’ve been blogging since the early 2000s, possibly earlier. Whenever livejournal first started that’s where I started. Then I switched to Vox, and now I’m here. Honestly I’ve been a pretty sporadic blogger for some time now. I like to have one and I’ve gone through several. This is really the first blog that I really like the name of it. This blog is who I am, and who I will be. It is my past, present, and future.

I’ve been writing in a journal ever since I got my first diary in elementary school. It had tiny little boxes and the dates already filled in. I filled it out dutifully every day. I wrote down my 8 year old little self’s dreams and hopes. . I talked about my elementary school crush, Justin. I rarely talked about the sadness I felt going to school. I left out the parts where I sat by myself at lunch time. My best friend at the time went to a different school, and so I didn’t see her until after. After that diary I moved on to more sophisticated journals. The last few journals I have had were big blank canvases. I’d write lists, draw doodles, and talk about the root of all my feelings.

This is a journal, because that is what it is to me now,  will be a lifestyle blog, a documentation of my days and my past, my musings, and a place for me to talk about my favorite things like books.
