I’ve always been fond of journeys. Time-travel, personal growth, physical growth, space, cross-country, you name it, I’ve either read it, watched it or want to read or watch it.
It’s the core of being a human being. Everything in our society is a journey because we consider our lives and time to be linear.
Ever since my life was put in motion on a different path than expected when my parents divorced, I’ve been in a whirlwind trying to chart out who I am, what I want to do and with whom I want to spend my life. Taking time out to document what I’ve learned and taken from the many experiences I’ve had took a backseat for “later.”
I realize now that there is no “later.” Anything I think is important to do “someday,” is important to do today. I always said, “when I’m 24, when I’m an adult.” Well, now I’m here and I certainly don’t feel like I thought I would. I definitely don’t feel like an adult. But time is ticking away, there’s no time to waste planning for a later that may never happen the way I imagine it in my head. So this new thread within my blog dedicated to self-publishing my creative writing is an homage to the many journey’s I’ve had or seen.
I’m hoping that my reflection on where I’ve been will better help me visualize and achieve my dream. I hope to keep this blog updated as often as possible as I work full time, take the GRE, apply to grad school and hopefully complete my first novel.
