Growing up, I was always the first one to say they hated english class. Not only did I hate it, but I sucked at it too. I never enjoyed writing, or reading. Maybe it’s because I was forced to read about stuff I wasn’t fond of, and write pointless essays.
I never saw myself having a blog. That requires a lot of writing…. I thought I would never even be good at it! Although, I did love having a journal when I was younger, or a “diary”, and you can always pick out my school work by the endless doodles on the side of the page.
Something I’ve always loved to do was being creative, (or- at least be as creative as I can get, lol.) Whether it be the “model” stage in my life, or the “photographer” stage, or the “actress” stage- oh and the best one yet; my “youtube beauty guru” stage.
My passion is to be a cosmetologist- and I aspire to become the best I can be one day. With cosmetology comes a lot of creativity. From the cut of your hair, to the design on your nails, and the color of your lipstick.
Several years ago I created youtube videos. Hauls, makeup tutorials, cosmetic reviews, hair tutorials- you name it, I did it. Filming, editing & simply just getting ready for the videos took up a bunch of time, which is why I started becoming distant with my videos, and before I knew it, I deleted them all. I know being a youtuber wasn’t a silly thing, I mean there were thousands of girls like me out there. I truthfully didn’t know why I stopped, and I still don’t know to this day.
Now that I’m graduated from high school- I thought it was time to step up by game and get going with the whole cosmetology thing before I attended school. I created my old blog- which was mainly created to share my makeup, fashion, hair ideas, etc. Then I thought- why does my blog have to be about just this? Why not everything else, like stories, advice, d.i.y.s, and pictures? So- thats why I started this new blog. On a nice, clean, fresh new page. I still plan on including the whole beauty/ fashion aspect, since it is my passion.
So- to get on with the post. Why do I write? It honestly took me a while to figure it out. I didn’t necessarily do it for attention, although I was always one that wanted to inspire people with my thoughts & creativity. But, I think I do it mainly for myself. I have so many thoughts written in my drafts, & so many random notes & blog ideas written in my notebook on my night stand. Blogging is a great way to capture memories, or lifetime advice you will always need. I write to get my opinions, thoughts, & ideas out of my head, hoping one of my readers will appreciate it.
Writing also happens to be one of the best therapy. To relive my stress, I was always one to just curl up in a ball and go to sleep. Now- I write. I write about anything & everything, even if it doesn’t make sense. You don’t necessarily have to post and share everything you write- you can simply just do it for yourself. There’s nothing wrong with that.
So, write your thoughts, share them- who cares if anyone’s even reading? Do it for no one but yourself.
Now, it’s your turn. Why do you write? Let me know in the comments below!
