the beginnings of not taking myself too seriously

From the time I was ten years old and watching iCarly (inspirational beginning, I know), I knew that I wanted to become a blogger one day.

Emphasis on the one day part, of course.

It’s taken me almost ten years to make good on my 10-year-old self’s dream, but I have decided that I have a lot to say, and I owe it to myself to finally give myself a lasting space to say all of it.

In the past, I have hesitated to blog out of the fear of not having anything worthwhile to share, or having people criticize what I did choose to say. Being a freshman in college has subsequently taught me that in the past, I have taken myself way too seriously.

Many of the friends I have made in my just under two semesters at college so far made the plunge a while ago in deciding to blog, and seeing the links to their blogs throughout these first seven months of college has given me the ~courage~ I needed to finally make the plunge as well.

Admittedly, this is a pretty meaningless first blog post, but hey, ya gotta start somewhere. If only one person (besides my mom that is – hi mom!) reads what I have to say, then I will be one happy “blogger.”

Stay tuned for my first ~real~ blog entry, and please forgive me if it doesn’t live up to my original iCarly blogging inspiration!


  1. Glad you’ve decided to take the first step to sharing your gift of writing as you make a dream reality! I look forward to reading! I am proud of you! Love you!❤️💻


  2. Hey what about Dad? Always love listening and reading to anything you have to say. We don’t always agree, but that’s the point sometimes. Free exchange of ideas helps us all grow. Love you and and very proud of you; we all need to take ourselves less serious. Love Dad


  3. I love this! Write to reflect, challenge, grow and inspire. Above all, leave a legacy. I’m proud of you and look forward to so much more. ❤
