Normal people just don’t get it. Sure there might be one or two people I know who may share the same enthusiasm I have for maybe one book, but when I start going on a rant about anything else their eyes get this glazed over look on them. I love to use really big words in front of people, especially adults because it is funny to see how they react. Generally teenagers and kids will ask what it means, but adults will nod their heads and pretend they know when it is very apparent they don’t, but who would want to admit that a 16 year old knows a word you don’t?
At the end of the day, if you don’t have anything to say was your life meaningful? One of my fears is oblivion. Not in the literal sense, but in the sense that I will die without ever making a difference. I feel that I have made a difference in some people, but I always am left wondering could I have done more? Which is a part of life.
I started blogging because I have passion. Specifically, I have a passion for books. I have something to say, and I wanted to say it. I wanted to say it to people who cared and maybe even had the same passion for books that I did. Words can inspire, create, motivate, and entertain. I wanted to be a crazy fangirl over all of the exciting things that were happening in these magical worlds that have become home. I wanted to talk to people that understand. I adore how words–how books can change the world. Not everyone has the same beliefs and feelings as me and that is the fun part. I have had discussions about many topics with people of all ages all around the world. I have made internet friends with people in Australia, France, England, the Philippines, and so many other places I would have never imagined.
The most important reason I blog is for myself. If you aren’t doing it for yourself, you won’t be doing it for long. I wanted an outlet for my creativity and craziness. I wanted to improve in writing and reading, and to become a part of this blogging community that I now love. I love being surrounded by other insane, nerdy, and amazing people.
I love getting away from my everyday life and just being able to write and write until it is out there. It has been such an amazing journey and I have grown and learned in more ways than I can count.
