 DAY 1: INTRODUCE YOURSELF

I like to go by Elly, this is what my family has called me since I was a young girl. It is actually very rare that they call me by my first name. It is extremely strange. Sometimes I often don’t even recognize that it’s actually my name. That’s only the case when I’m at home or near my family. It feels more family oriented, the name. In fact, there was even a time when someone called my house and asked to speak to me by my actual name, my brother for a second was going to inform them it was the wrong number. That’s how rare it is! I’m not too fond of my actual name.

Perhaps it’s because there’s a whole lot of uncertainty with it. I suppose what I’m trying to say is, since at school I’m referred to as (blank) there’s a different personality that accompanies it. Can’t quite say I’m fully explaining myself but I know that my personality at home is much more different than at school. I have more freedom at home and at school… I’m quite reserved. Lol.

Anyway….

I’m 21 years of age, I “attend” college. My purpose of writing this blog is to get more in touch with myself. Sort of boring right? Well I am almost 100% sure that It will definitely add some structure to my thoughts because my mind runs like it’s on crack. And I wish it were extremely genius ideas and solutions to all the type of problems that exist today… but sometimes it’s quite the opposite. I love to stir “what ifs” around like no tomorrow. Who doesn’t though?

I think i skipped a question.

The reason I’m blogging instead of writing in a journal, which I do have by the way, is because I put off writing. ALOT. I am such a procrastinator, no joke. I literally write a handful of diary entries each year, sometimes I even skip years lol. So this is what I’m thinking, since this is online, maybe the fact that some people may read it is what will give me motivation to type more.

Who would you love to connect with via your blog?

– Umm, people. During these past years, i have become very anti-social. I’m hoping I can meet or become aware of other people who are similar to me. The other day I was reading some other people’s blogs, stalking if you will, and it’s amazing how much you can get to know a person. I think it’s great, of course it isn’t actual face to face communication but you have the general idea of a variety of people out there. 🙂 So I hope to find your pretty souls! Mwahaha. Creepy.

If you blog successfully throughout 2014, what would you hope to have accomplished?

Life. 

I haven’t been living as much as I imagined I would. Therefore, anything that will help me grow as a person and become more aware of myself and others will be a great benefit. I don’t want to live without appreciating what I have and those who I have with me. I have learned a great deal of things through tragedy these past years and I have realized that our time here on earth isn’t set in stone. We hope to live long and happy, but unfortunately that wish isn’t granted for everyone. Am I depressing you? I think I completely changed the vibe just now.

Well…. I think those are all the questions for now! What do you hope to accomplish?! Oh and before I forget here is the link to the actual challenge, in case you wish to follow it as well. 🙂

Intro to Zero to Hero: 30 Day Challenge

Sunday, January 5th 2014 11:34 P.M.

I have the habit of writing the date and time on each journal entry. So I may use it here as well, I like knowing exactly when and where I wrote each piece. 🙂 The only downside to writing on here is that I don’t get to use an actual pen. It feels more intimate to me. I don’t know exactly how this is going to work out, the whole blogging thing. It’s feeling sort of iffy. I’m talking to all of you folks out there and it is sort of intimidating and I find myself second guessing what I’m going to say. Maybe within time it will feel more natural? I’m just a newb. Or was it noob? I prefer newbie. Alright!

Well since I’m such a newbie, what can be better than a 30 day challenge?? Suited for beginners or for those who have an actual blog up and running already! I do think i’m a couple of days behind though. Haha. I’m not sure if I will catch up or just go at my own pace. I will link the challenge down below in case you want to join as well! Fantastic right? Ok. Lets start. 

—Actually, I just got side tracked with my little brother who entered my room—-  He started cuddling with my kitten Lila, I’m guessing since he spent the week at my older brother’s house, he isn’t used to being alone. I should probably go hang out with him for a bit. I will write the first challenge in another post! 🙂 

It is now 12:10 am by the way.
