This Is It - 2021
Who I Am
Realized I came on here and got weirdly existential without ever really introducing myself...So here's a little hello
For the purposes of this journal, I'm M. (Other people mentioned will also likely be named by letter. It's fun)
This isn't a particularly "anonymous" journal, as I've mentioned it on other platforms, and I'm not especially trying to "hide" myself, but I still like the idea of having a sort of pseudo-anonymity here.
I'm 20 years old - though not for much longer, and currently enrolled in a Bachelor's program at a university.
I love writing, studied it intensely in high school, kind of fell off of it in college, and think this has the possibility of being a really interesting little writing experiment.
"What do you want to do in life?" - The Big Question every holiday, every meeting, the once a year That One Relative talks to you. My answer: I don't know. I'm passionate about activism and social work, but I'm not sure yet how I might turn that into a Career. I would like to be a content creator (a creator, not an influencer), but I've still got a bit of audience-building to go before that's at all viable. I have ideas for stories/books, but I'd actually have to sit down, outline, and write them first. For now, I'm just making my way one day to the next. I'm not discontent with where I am in life (or, where I was before the pandemic threw things entirely off track), and not really worried about needing to make a Big Decision right now. I know some people don't enjoy feeling unstable in life or taskless or whatever may come with unsurety, but I'm okay with it for now.
I feel like I've barely dipped my toes into adulthood, throwing myself into the deep-end without first learning to swim will only lead to drowning. I can give myself time to practice paddling.
I'm not great at just...describing myself when I try to. So I think that's the end of this little thing. Anything else important will probably come up if inspired by other entries. Probably.
