Okay, so I had told several people that I didn’t think that I’d make a blog at all until after my dreaded exams were over. But, here I am, three days before my first exam deciding to make one. I know, pretty stupid. But I have been thinking about it all day, and I decided that I did actually want to make one and then I got slightly over-excited and just thought ‘what the heck, no time like the present! ;]’.
So here I am writing my first ever blog. I doubt that I’d get many readers, however sometimes it’s nice to express myself and vent out my feelings somewhere other than on twitter. This brings me on to one of the reasons that I’ve decided to create this blog. I confess. I may be the tiniest bit addicted to twitter. Well not addicted really, perhaps I just ‘have a slight twitter problem’. I tend to tweet whatever random thoughts pop into my head, at whichever random time- which is quite often as I am a very random person. [This is something that you [my reader/s if I do get any] will come to realise quite quickly. So rather than trying to squeeze what I want to say within a letter count of 140 letters maximum, I feel that a blog would be the best solution to say what I want to say, that I can’t cover in two brief sentences while tweeting. And I do have A LOT to say!
This brings me on to another reason why I’m writing this blog. There are so many random rants that I have- about the things that I feel need to be said- to my friends, particularly my best friend Anjola. It is actually while reading her blog that I came to this conclusion, and decided to make my own. As William Wordsworth once said ‘Fill your paper with the breathings of your heart.’ And that is exactly what I aim to do in this blog. I am going to write about the things that I think and feel that I can’t or just don’t say to others, things that I feel passionate about, my highs and lows- the breathings of my heart.
I went through a stage a while back when I’d just pick up a pen and start writing aimlessly until I produced some somewhat decent poetry. When I had something that I needed to get off my chest, if I thought of an interesting subject that I’d like to explore, or even just while I was sitting in class bored. It was in fact these moments- during a lesson- that I find I wrote my best, without really over thinking and just writing. Unfortunately a lot of these poems- much like most of my other ‘hobbies’ had to be abandoned when my GCSEs then A levels started. Most of my best poems ended up just disappearing, never to be found again during this period- mostly because I’d written them on the backs of worksheets or pointless pieces of paper. So I would like to start writing again- more seriously. Therefore, I think that this blog will aid me and encourage me to use the long neglected side of my imagination again.
Well, I better stop now. There is so much more that I want to say, but I think that I’ll save it for my next post. Right now, I’ve got to go revise for this French exam! ;D
