Now, for most of the people that know me back home and here at Lakeland College, they know almost everything about me. It’s kind of scary how much they know about me, but that’s what I love about my friends. They accept me for all of my quirks and weirdness.
But, what they don’t know is the REAL me. There are lots of things I don’t tell people for one of three reasons: they’ll judge me, they’ll leave, or they will just cut me out of there life completely. That’s why I’m so shy, guarded, and my walls are kept up the majority of the time.
So, with this blog, I figured I’d tell all of my friends and readers (whoever you may be) a little bit about myself. I will obviously have most of the things be happy, but some of the things will be deep and slightly shocking. Once I’m done naming them all, I will do my best to explain why I wrote this blog to begin with.

The reason why I did my blog like this is because, I usually don’t talk about what make me…ME a whole lot. I figured that if I wrote this, people could get to know me better and see why I’m the way that I am. I know I’m not the definition of “perfect”, and I’m okay with that. I’m uniquely original, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I’m liking where I am now, and I can’t wait to improve on everything in my life and make it better. There’s nothing holding me back, and if I have set backs…that means there’s something better coming. Either way…I’m treasuring every moment I have…and I’m liking what I see so far.
