I like blank pages. I like everything they have to offer. I like knowing they're going to be filled in, but having no clue about when or how. I love how blank pages mean an opportunity. They can turn out to be anything you choose. Maybe that's the reason they're so hard to fill in sometimes.
This blog is another blank page that I've started to
fill in, and I'm as excited about it as I'm nervous. Will anyone read
these words? Will anyone like them? Will anyone care? Why am I writing
this blog, in the end?
But let's not get carried away. If you got
here... hi there! You might be wondering who I am. I'm a 20-year-old
girl who gets overly obsessed with anything she likes. Books, musical
theatre (especially Les Misérables), Doctor Who... My native language
isn't English, so forgive me if I don't make sense in some moments!
(Although to be fair, sometimes I don't make sense even in my own
language.) I'm a mess and I'm a mixture of things that maybe shouldn't
go together. I love the scent of new books. Sometimes I'm really (and I
mean REALLY) shy, and sometimes I'm the most talkative person you've
ever met. Sometimes I'm too much, sometimes you don't see me. Sometimes I
think I have a "CONTRADICTION" sign on my head, along with green lights
Still... that's not the point. The point is that I have another very important thing.
I have a story.
it isn't an epic story in which I'm the shining hero. But I've been
through some things and I've learned some others. And I still have a lot
to learn. But I've seen that sharing my thoughts has helped other
people before. And, of course, writing has always helped me. Words are my filter to understand everything. To understand myself. So that's why I'm here.
I want to talk about the title of my blog. Although it wasn't easy to
choose I'm quite happy about it now! During most of my life, I've felt
like I don't really belong anywhere. Sure, I have friends here and
there, but always individual friends with their own groups of friends
with whom they go out while I stay home. And sometimes I've just felt
stuck and stopped really living. And then one day I realised...
the world wouldn't stop for me. The world keeps going round and round
so fast that, if we don't watch out, we can end up being left behind.
And I don't want to. So I've started a path without knowing where it
leads. But I'm going to make the most of it while I'm on my way.
A big big hug!
PS: Hey hey hey! Acqua here! I had another blog (onmywayacqua.blog.com), but a lot of people told me how they had a lot of problems to get to it, so given that I only had two posts I decided to move it before the problem got worse. This was also the first post I posted there, but I wanted to post it again so there would be an actual beginning to this blog. Thank you so much to everyone who read and commented on the other blog! I'm sorry for the inconvenience of bringing it here, but blog.com wasn't working. And if you're new, hi there! I hope you liked it, let me know what you thought! xx
