Dim the lights, put on some cringe worthy music and light some scented candles because I my friends, am about to lose my blog virginity……unless you count contributing a paragraph to my dad’s travel blog when I was 11 because really that was only the tip of blogging and you gotta remember, the tip never counts! (Only kidding, it totally does).
I guess I’ve kinda blogged my whole life now that I think about it, but it has always only ever been internally. I’ve constantly had millions of thoughts running through my head for things I could write about, but in my 19 years and 2 months (they also count, just saying) and I’ve never been able to sit down and put pen to paper, or in this case fingers to keyboard. In the bottom draw of my bedside table you will find an extensive collection of yearly journals that stop at some point in mid January, and numerous shitty songs that are half written, but were never promising enough to finish.
My life is a lot like that actually, starting something and not always finishing it. Being somebody who lives with ADHD, I have gotten used to this just becoming a part of who I am, but I don’t want to live my life only having half-accomplished everything I do. I know I’m always going to battle with my ADHD, and I know it’s not always going to be a walk in the park, but I’m determined to one way or another gain that sense of achievement I’ve always been missing in life.
In a long-winded round-a-bout way of explaining it, that is why I am starting this blog. I couldn’t really give a flying fuck if nobody reads it, but I don’t want to get through my first 2 decades of life not having done something substantial all on my own accord. Sure, I’ve achieved things in life, I’m not saying I haven’t. I graduated high school, I got into university, and learnt to tie my shoes (this being my biggest attainment, duh), but I didn’t do these things without somebody else guiding me along telling me what to do or what to say. To be fair, 5-year-old Brooke was a piss poor excuse for a shoelace tier and DEFINITELY required some assistance.
If anybody chooses to read my blogs on a regular basis for more than first 3 sentences (doubt it), you’re probably going to get a personal and raw insight on what its like to be inside my head. I’m not promising you’ll like it, but I promise it will be as honest as a mirror. If you’re easily offended, homophobic, misogynistic, racist or if you’re just a downright dickhead, move your cursor to the little red “x” in the corner and get the fuck outta here thanks!
If anybody has some suggestion topics of things I could blog about hit me up, cause I usually forget to write shit down when it comes to mind and 5 minutes later I’ve already forgotten it lmao. I don’t want to bore anyone so I’ll end this intro blog here, but thanks for helping me lose my blogging virginity! It’s been swell. Oh and for anyone wondering about the title of my blog page, I have a fish tattoo, but I’ll save that story for later!
