Of this blog

Sometimes I think of leaving this blog to another cyber space but I think of the fact that I've been here for five years now and I feel a sudden affection for my blog. I love it here, who am I kidding? This is me, not all of me of course for to say that would be a lie. Yet, it's the part of me that I choose to reveal. I've changed so much since I first started. I was 14 when I started it, what did I know now that I didn't know then? I'm not sure it accounts to much.
It's home, in more than one way. I will say it again and again that blogs are a blessing and I find comfort in reading many of them, so I can only write here in hope that a lost confused soul finds little comfort in mine. I have to convince myself of that sometimes, but at times I think I'm the lost confused soul that needs to be comforted so I shamelessly stalk my blog.

A new found admiration for the written word, and so I clumsily make my way into the writing world faking nonchalance. If you talk yourself into it, it gets easier you know? Writing what will eventually make you more at ease in your own skin. A little of that chaos of your your mind into letters and words screaming out more meaning than they should be asked to carry. So you stop writing, because it's dizzying. Your brain starts asking you to make sense of things words can't simply express. You read instead, and there, here's someone who's managed to make sense of it all when they don't even know the first thing to living your life.

So it's an addictive act. You know it fully well when you're writing a blog post. I used to publish everything right away, now I wait. I edit and sometimes I decide against the whole thing till a few days later I muster up enough courage to share it with the world. I'm not sure if that means I lack courage or it's that I'm more of a perfectionist now? A bit of both perhaps. So, for now. This gets to stay as it is.
Thank you for reading.

A love for words is deeply ingrained in you, you may feel sick at times, minutes, days, weeks or months...but you will come back, always. Because in words lies your true vocation <3
