First, I’d like to say ‘hello’.
Second, I’m really excited about this and quite nervous (since I’ve never done this whole thing annnnnnd don’t know quite how to go about it; I guess I’ll figure it out as I go! That and Blogging 101 will be my new best friend…).
You’re probably asking: who is this crazy person?
Well, I’m a white, female college student. I know, not terribly specific. I’m sorry, but truthfully not sorry, if I disappointed you. Because, let’s be real. The internet is a big, scary place. Once something is published, it’s on the web for eternity and can be dug up; now, that might require a professional snooper, but it’s still entirely possible. Personally, I’d rather not have my Facebook stalked and snooped. Perhaps some of you don’t mind, but I do.
Anywho, back to the whole introduction nonsense (because Blogging 101 suggested it, so why the hell not). Hobbies: Music, Drawing, Reading, Writing (in a phrase, ‘the Arts’) Major: Music Education
And now that I’ve given you a teeny, tiny glimpse of myself, you might be wondering: what’s this all about?
Basically, as the Tagline suggests, it’s about recognizing issues within our society. For example: Abuse, Consent, Racism, etc. The heavy hitting (Sorry for the interruption, but I was just reminded of that commercial for legal attorneys, “The Heavy Hitters” and their jingle “The Heavy Hitters are all you need, call 1-800-LAW-1333.”) things that are important, but (in my personal opinion- and since this is my blog, my opinion counts here) don’t really get the recognition that they should. I realized this fact with an abrupt face slap from Reality pretty recently. Actually, it’s been one week tonight since I received the aforementioned slap to my face. I’ve been brainstorming what to do about my conundrum ever since and came up with blogging.
On to the next logical question: why did I choose to blog about this?
I won’t share the personal reason (maybe someday, I’m not too sure yet), however I feel like these are topics that are too important to just feign ignorance/naiveté towards any longer. Also, I tried the whole journaling thing and as much as I appreciate the permanence and romanticism of paper and pen(cil), someone read those sacred thoughts of mine, and I haven’t written in my pretty turquoise journal since. So my solution is to be essentially anonymous and blog.
Happy reading, Humans!

PS- In future blogs swearing and other not so nice content could occur. If you don’t like it, leave now. 🙂 Also I will always title/start with Dear ____ (which reminds me of that website….). And I will probably always be kinda wordy with my posts; I’m sorry (truely sorry) in advance. 😛
