One of those things where you write about your day. Your interests. Your friends. Your hobbies. Your hopes and dreams. Then you do something absolutely crazy. You post all of this on the internet. You post all of this where everybody in the world can see.
I’ve always thought of blogs as absolute invasions of privacy.
So why did I make one?
You see, college is a trying time in one’s life. It is also a time that I am currently facing in my own life. College is a time of studying. Studying like you never thought was possible. It’s almost a slap in the face when you’ve lived your entire pre-college life thinking that you’re intelligent, and then you come to a college to realize there are some 20,000 people equally gifted as you are within a five-mile radius. College is where you meet some of the most amazing friends in your life. College is a time of competition and trying to be the best. Trying to have the highest GPA, the most extracurriculars, the best leadership positions, and the highest connections. It’s pretty intense, and sometimes you just have to let it out, you know? And I don’t just mean the ranting. I mean those deep thoughts dancing through your mind as you lay in bed, trying to get a few measly hours of sleep. Those thoughts you didn’t even think you were capable of thinking. Those thoughts trying to stampede their way out of your head at the wrong place, at the wrong time. Those thoughts that you would let out, if only you knew who to share them with.
Well. Why not start with everybody?
Or at least, anybody who will listen.
