Undergraduate. A mass of uncertainty. Obviously I’m going to blog. Sometimes badly, sometimes well. Sometimes funny, sometimes really not.
Funny Business Required
I’ve always been someone easy to laugh at. Hell, I laugh at myself all the time. I can’t make fun of other people without
making them cry messing with their limits, so the safest thing to do turn it inwards! So, I though, why not give all these anonymous people reason to laugh at me too?
Take my childhood. Man, was I totally messed up. I’m pretty sure a lot of the things that I was into, that I did, or that happened to me did not happen to anyone else. The time (read: years) I was careening down a sure path to being a hobo. Or the time I was determined to find and seduce my true love in seventh grade. Or maybe the time when I finally turned 9 and realized I’d been living in fear my entire life.
A lot of this is probably due to my parents and grandparents. They spent years telling me lies that I built my childhood foundation on! And when I grew up and realized what really happened… well, you should be asking me why I wasn’t messed up.
To find these stories, blurbs, whatever I decide to put under humor, just look under the tab labeled “Hahaha, oh Michelle….” give or take a few “ha”s. Who’s Michelle? Never you mind. She’s just this weirdo that I decided to name the tab after.
The Serious Stuff
During second semester of my freshman year, I went through what most people don’t until further on in life. I contemplated my mortality, and it put me through one of the darkest periods of my life.
I asked myself questions like:
- what is the purpose of all this (my life, humanity, education)?
- what is motivating me to do this?
- is all this worth it in the end?
I’m a big thinker: full of ideas, thoughts, dreams and goals. Being a big thinker was one of the main reasons why I went through that period. Because I’m still in school, these things have no outlet, nowhere to go while I’m in college supposedly building myself a life. All the pressure kept building until I couldn’t take it anymore.
So I decided to write for no other purpose than to allocate my thoughts and to explore my skills as a writer. Because of this, there will be a large amount of seemingly random topics that I chose to write about. My main focuses will be on my life and how I’m trying to build one that I absolutely love by finding my passions, musings, reviews, ordinary little things in life that I find funny, stories about my childhood, and college stories.
