I know your probably thinking “this freaking amazing woman forgot to post again”, but I did not. This time it was intentional for a special reason. One year ago today I started this amazing journey of writing a blog. You got it people, it’s Life As A Moon’s one year Anniversary! Yay! We made it! In honor of this momentous occasion I’m going to tell you a little story.
This blog had been in the planning stages for a couple of years… I’m not exactly sure how many but I know it was a couple. You see I’ve always loved to write, but only for fun, once I have to write for an assignment it’s over I hate it. Anyway I remember one day I was having (I think it was) lunch at a dinner with Frover, and we were talking about different things about what we thought our lives were going to look like at that point. I was telling her that I thought I would’ve been done with school and starting my career, and just knowing who and what I was going to become. In truth I was no where near done with school. I had this hatred towards school. I believed it was pointless for me to be going because there was nothing worth my time and money. There was nothing that I was passionate enough to make me want to stick through it. For me to feel those things had me in a bad place for so many years. I constantly had this negative pattern of thinking, and it wasn’t healthy for me.
At that point I had never told anybody how I felt about the path my life had taken or how I felt lost, and what Frover told me that day is what ultimately made my decision to start this blog. She told me( and I’m paraphrasing because I don’t remember it word for word) to just write, forget about school and forget about everything else that makes you unhappy. She basically told me to do me. I don’t think I ever told her because I was trying not to sob uncontrollably in the middle of this dinner, but I want to say thank you to her. Even though it took me years to get the courage to actually start my own blog (because I was scared that people would judge me) I finally did last year and look at me now… It’s my One Year Anniversary!! I guess it just had to be at the right time in my life for me to just feel like fuck it, I’m going to do what I’ve always loved to do and finally have a place where I can go to be myself, and most importantly not give a flying fuck what other people thought of me. I remember what I told to myself before I posted my first post ( and yes I talk to myself). If people read this and they like me and what I have to say then that’s Awesomeballz in a can filled with Awesomeness, but if they don’t…oh well you can’t please everybody.
Thank you Frover for being my proofreader, my psychologist, my supporter and most importantly my Sluttie for life… Love you!
Love Ya from the Moon and Back,
Emily ( holy bananas this year flew by!)
