Back to Blogging U!

Published July 5, 2015 by GenYMission

Hello my beautiful readership!

I’ve been a part of the blogosphere for [approximately] 6 months now! (Woohoo!)

Anyways, I’m doing the blogging U thing again (Blogging 101! it’s so exciting)

Mostly I’m doing it to connect with more bloggers because that’s exciting, but I’ll probably do most of the assignments too.

Like, todays assignment is give an introduction. Tell the blogosphere who you are, and why you are blogging pretty much.

I’ve done a few posts like that before, but to recap for those of you who are new here:

  • I’m a teenage blogger. A 16 (nearly 17) year old high school senior. I blog to be heard, to express myself.
  • I blog because it helps me connect with people. I have made a few friends through blogging
  • I blog about my thoughts on life I guess… whatever I feel like posting. Sometimes my brain may be functioning in a somewhat incoherent manner, so I’ll type out all of the things running through my mind and publish that! (That, my friends, is called a brain dump)
  • Sometimes I post some doodles and such up here… depends on my mood… occasionally I might post a journal post, I’ve gotten some good feedback from those (More accurately they are ‘notebook posts’)
  • I post about interesting things that I do, or things that happen to me.

Basically, I write what I want with my own voice.

Originally, I thought I would use this more as a ranting type of blog, as I’m in high school, and things are buggy sometimes, but it didn’t really work out that way. I guess because sometimes I over think things and have a negative attitude, I’m not a genuinely negative person.

I’d like to think most of my posts give more of a positive vibe (Although, I guess It’s harder for me to tell, as I’m the author)

Just as a quick little update on real time-what’s happening right now, my dog has been traumatized by fireworks from last night (The noise freaked her out) and she has been pacing between my room, my closet, my moms room, and the hallway. Occasionally she will lay down or whine at something. Currently she seems to be passed out in the hallway.

Also, I have play-doh beside me (just because, okay!) and I am going back and forth between typing and taking out some play doh to squish it and smell it… I like the smell of it…

Alright, that’s basically it for this post. Thank you guys for reading!!!! You are all awesome! 🙂

Wow how did this happen?!

Hello again people. 

I’m kind of shocked right now, as right now I’m on spring break from school, it’s not the break that shocked me. I’m definitely okay with the break.

But when I go back, in only 7 more weeks, I won’t be a junior anymore. Which can only mean that I will be a senior. 

It will be my last year of high school, and I’ll have to apply to go to college and stuff!

This is crazy, I remember when I first heard that I had to go to school for 12 years. 

I was in first grade and my thoughts were something like “you mean I have 11 more years in this place! That’s absurd!” I don’t think absurd was in my vocabulary then, but you get the point. 

Then when I heard that college was an option, and I didn’t have to go, I was still in first grade I think. I thought something along the lines of ” No I’m not going to college, why would I go to school for longer than I have to?”

My parents quickly corrected my thinking there, and I’ve never since doubted I would go to college.

We had a meeting a few weeks ago for senior scheduling and there they gave us the speech that we are the role models of the school. 

It just feels so weird, people told me these 4 years would go fast. Those people were right.

Anyways, that’s what I’ve been thinking for a while. I have to publish this now though because I’m writing this on my phone on the car and I feel carsick. 

I wish you all the best. 🙂
