This will be my 2nd post for the 20 day blog challenge by Saga. The 2nd day is where I have to tell you why I decided to start a blog. To be honest, I don’t really know why I started a blog; or the deal breaker that actually made me go forward with the idea. I do know that I basically started this blog out of boredom. I had just moved out to Florida that summer, was about 4-5 months pregnant, and I was bored out of my mind. I also know that reading KevinandAmanda.com was part of the process of deciding to start a blog. I must have figured I’d start a blog to pass the time to talk about World of Warcraft, the raising of my son, and about my Real Life.
So I did start this blog out of boredom, but I believe I also started it as a therapy method for me. When I was in 8th grade, I was dealing with Depression and it was recommended that I see a psychiatrist. My psychiatrist told me to write in a journal about my day regardless of how I felt about it. I did end up writing in a yellow-greenish journal until I got a new purple one my sophomore year of High School. It helped me a bunch to the tune that I ended up not seeing my psychiatrist after about 3-4 sessions. I ended up losing that yellow-greenish journal when I moved out of the house at age 18. I still have my purple journal though, and it’s been almost 5 years since I graduated High School. It’s not filled up, and I tend to write in that purple journal from time to time whenever I want to write about my horrible days that I do not wish to share with others. Some people have yoga, talking with friends, work, and meditation. I simply have writing this blog as my way to think, gather my thoughts, and share them with people who wish to read it. I’ll tell you what though. As much as I enjoy writing this blog, I HATE writing essays/classes/research papers. “Almost as I hate rogues!” Which I might add is my new phrase to express how much I hate something.
