In this day and age, I’m sure we all know that it’s a bad idea to compare yourself to people online. What people post tends to be a selective highlight reel, showing off their best moments as opposed to less photo-worthy everyday realities and creating the appearance of a life which is unrealistically perfect. Now that being said, I’m starting this blog to catalogue my efforts to create a “blog-worthy” life for myself. I’m not expecting to be able to build a life that measures up to the carefully edited ones you tend to see on popular fitness/travel/lifestyle/etc. blogs, but just one that brings me joy and allows me to develop into a better version of myself. I’ll freely admit that I’m a person with a lot of room for improvement, and I don’t want to hide the uglier parts of my life as I work through some serious self-development. I also have a lot to be grateful for, and I want this blog to help me remember that.
On that note, I should probably stop writing this and go back to working on note-taking and reading. I’m a third-year English major who just took two weeks off for a tonsillectomy, and I have a whole lot of catching up to do. Wish me luck!
