Currently Listening To: All Time Low – Guts; All Time Low – The Beach; All Time Low – Poppin’ (Champagne); All Time Low – Stay Awake
Hello. I see you’ve found my little blog, and I’d like to be the first to warmly say, “Welcome, welcome, welcome!” Thank you for joining me.(Gosh, I feel like the witch from Hansel and Gretel after that. New approach…)
Hey there! Thanks for coming and reading my blog! I really appreciate it!(No… it feels too preppy… and has too many exclamation points. Trying again…)
Hi. You’re reading my blog, which kind of blows my mind on a million different levels. And poke around, if you wish, even though there’s really not much to poke at. But yes – thank you for reading this. It’s actually really awesome that you are.(… Meh. That’s sadly the best I can come up with. But I am thankful you’re here and haven’t left yet. Though I can’t guarantee you will be by the end.)
So, as the little column thing on the side that gives you the “About Me” of the blogger whose blog you’re viewing says… I’m May. Okay, well, honestly that’s my internet name because my parents don’t like me giving out my real name. And yes – I do get my parent’s permission for everything. And I’m talking about calling up my mom at work and asking her if I can buy food because I forgot my lunch. (Even though I’ve recently been smart about that and now must have at least four granola bars at a time in my backpack.)So, a little about me that will find its way into the “About Me” section once I figure out how to actually work it (and everything else on this site):
I’m a female sixteen-year-old high school student in Canada. Also, as I’m sure you can tell by the “currently listening to” line – I like All Time Low. I like brackets and bolding and underlining and italicizing (but there probably won’t be any of that in this post because I have no idea how to work it yet. Just wait for the next post, though). I’m generally very organized, and I usually have to have a list of what I’m going to say, otherwise I forget something and become sad. In fact, I had such a cool idea planned out for this entire thing and now I’m totally blanking out on it and it’s kind of driving me crazy.What was it? The world may never know.
I’m also far more sarcastic and witty on the internet. Therefore, if you ever meet me in person, don’t be surprised by the fact that I may be quite socially awkward around you. Well, that or I’ll talk your ear off with random nonsense and you’ll probably avoid me forever afterwards.I’m also a very symbolic person. I guess that’s important because today is symbolic to me.
(No, it’s not my birthday. I’m disappointed as well.)I’ve officially wanted to be a writer for six years today.
That, dear people who are following my blog (who are probably only going to be my friends, I swear. Though, if you’re not, it’s very nice to meet you! Or… well, the internet “you-actually-read-my-blog” equivalent of meeting, that is) – that is the most important because this is the blog of an aspiring author.Wow… Typing that felt kind of weird, actually. Not because it’s not true, but because I’ve never actually called myself “aspiring.” I’ve always just said, “I want to be a writer.” Aspiring sounds so official.
Um… so, really the point of me starting this blog was kind of to just have a release where I can talk about my writing and what I want to write without forcing it on people.(Cough cough Mom/Dad/Other family/Friends/Random teacher who taught me a couple of years ago and doesn’t even remember my name cough cough.)
(No, seriously, that last one actually happened… just today, in fact. My grade nine French teacher was covering a class so I talked to her about all the stuff I’m about to mention. I could tell the entire conversation she was just thinking, “What is this girl’s name?”)But yeah – I’ve wanted to be an author for six years now, and writing’s just always been this thing I liked to do, but I never would’ve wanted to do it if it weren’t for my grade five teacher making me realize, “Wow. I’m kind of good at this and I actually like doing it.”
I don’t think my grade five teacher intended to get me borderline-obsessed with it. Oh well.Also, I use borderline because it’s be scientifically proven that I’m not obsessed, I’m merely borderline-obsessed. (And by scientifically proven, I mean my friends did a project on passions and obsessions for their Anthropology/Psychology/Sociology course and I was determined borderline-obsessed. I even beat out one of my friend’s YouTube addiction – err, passion. I must say – I felt as though that was an impressive feat.)
So – I know this should be shorter for a little intro, but I do talk a lot, so bear with me here because I have a little bit more to talk about. Thanks and congratulations on getting this far, by the way!Anyways, I am currently looking to get published, but I don’t have anything finished or iron clad done or anything yet, so I guess you’ll all read a little bit about that along the way. My goal is to get published by the end of high school. Or at least have a book deal… or an agent. Yeah, the main goal is to get an agent within the next sixteen months. I’m currently doing a lot of research on the publishing industry as well, because I’m kind of a newbie at… everything. So I’m trying to get a feel of how everything works.
Wow. This is so much longer than I intended it to be. I was hoping it’d be like… half a page. I guess not, since it’s two full pages. So, the last thing I wanted to say:Welcome to my blog.
- May :)
