Heyyy! My name is Lucy and I’m your average high schooler with typical high school problems (friends, homework, parents, etc). Although this blogging thing is more of a school assignment, I’m going to try and take advantage of this opportunity to make my mark in the world. People might describe me as athletic or smart, but I want people to be able to know me from what I write about rather than stalking me on social media sites or hearing the gossip that circulates throughout the school.
A lot of people don’t know the real me, and I want to surround myself with people who accept me for who I am. Typical right? I’m the quiet one that does everything the teacher says, listens to my parents (most of the time), and commits myself to relationships, whether it be friends or more. Well, I’ve decided I’m tired of staying up late at night, not being able to sleep, and reevaluating my entire life. I’m tired of agreeing with other people. I’m tired of “going with the flow.” I’m tired of keeping my mouth shut. I’m tired of not saying what’s on my mind.
Most people will agree that saying something over the computer is way easier than saying it in person. So it’s fair to say that voicing my opinions over a blog post is way easier than raising my hand in class while everyone turns to stare at me. I don’t like being the center of attention; I never have. Through blogging, it’s almost as if I’m typing out a journal of the thoughts that cross my mind on a daily basis and there’s less of a risk of embarrassment. I guess I could say that one of my biggest fears in life is failure. I mean, who likes to fail?
Hopefully, my ranting on this blog will free the trapped girl in my mind. Maybe I’ll stop being afraid of other people not liking me and be concerned with what makes me happy instead. People will learn who I am from what I present to them. I can portray myself however I want to and that’s the beauty of blogging. I don’t want to be “nice” or “fun”. Those words make me vomit in my mouth (not actually). I want more colorful adjectives to be associated with me. Most of all, I want to be memorable.
