I started my last blog in 2008. It was about my day-to-day life, mostly. I was only 16 years old at the time, so most of the posts consisted of large fonts and cheesy jokes. I stopped blogging in 2011 when I got engaged. I had grown tired of my blog and wanted to focus my energy on other things, especially because at the time I was a sophomore in college and planning a wedding. There have been many times in the three years since then that I have considered coming back to my blog. I always had a reason not to: I was busy, I didn’t know what to write, or the fact that it probably wouldn’t be read by anyone anyway.
Now I am 22 years old. I am a Master’s student at USC studying Communication Management. I work at Dolce & Gabbana as an intern for the west coast public relations department. I am happily married and live in the golden state. Basically, life is good. It’s better than good. I feel lucky to have reached a point in my life where I see the fruits of my labor and I’m still young & free. However, I have missed writing. It’s the best way for me to express myself, to connect to others, and to reflect on my life. I think everyone should write. Something about putting words on paper (or on computer, as it were) brings clarity.
So maybe no one will read it. Maybe at some point I will get too busy or not know what to write about. But, I am going to do it anyway because it’s good for the soul.
