Everyone is always telling me, “Carina, you need to start writing something…anything.” I can’t tell you how many times I have been told that I should start my own blog. I simply respond with, “Oh, I used to have a few of them, but then lose interest and never update them.” I guess I felt I never really had anything to blog about. I mean, who would really want to read what I have to say anyway, right?
I have also been told by people that I have a way with words. I’ll text a friend and they’ll respond with how well I “write” to them. So I figured now is as good a time as any to start a fresh blog. My own web diary that maybe you’ll read, maybe you won’t. But you know what, when people ask me why I don’t write and/or have a blog online, I can finally respond with those two words we all desire to say– “I do.”
I suppose I can accredit this new-found hobby to my incessant boredom of days as of late. I am out of school (graduated from San Diego State University in journalism…another reason why people wonder why I don’t write), and always at home, even though it’s summer. Potentially, my last summer of freedom without the restraints of one of those nine-to-five “big-girl” jobs. This is also the first time ever in my life that I have been solo with nothing and no one to really hold me back from doing almost anything that I want…minus this pesky DUI that I obtained at the end of last year. But that’s for another time. Right now, I’m just going to focus on the positive.
So here it is Mom and Dad. The blog you have all been waiting for. Here’s to the beginning of a new me.
The content that was previously posted on this blog were for my journalism multimedia class taken last semester. I thought about deleting it, but I just didn’t have the heart. I kind of like the idea of my other work being available for everyone to see. I am proud of it.
