a beginning

I keep a special journal for the really important things in my life. The things I want to remember no matter what get written in between it's pages. Concerts I go to of bands I love, the first job I ever had, even the death of a beautiful girl in my class that I knew. It's all written down. These things are precious to me, the good and the bad, because they make up experiences in my life that I really feel helped me become who I am now, and who I will be later. But I wondered... What about every day things? Things like getting a long awaited package in the mail, going out with friends, reading an interesting book, a night of baking, or a quiet evening spent at home. Where do those go? Those surely define who we are even more than the huge events in our life.

I've blogged before, but it wasn't anything serious because I was younger and mostly it was a place to rant my frustrations out, or post silly thoughts. I don't want this necessarily to be a "serious" blog, I just want it to be something I can look back on to see that those little things, those big things, everything that happened to me created who I was when I wrote them, and who I will be as I read them. I want to use this blog to appreciate the moments in life with family, friends, and even strangers. I want a place to write my path to growing up because I haven't even reached the end of that journey. I want to look back and be reminded how important those memories meant to me at the moment; how the insignificant things, and the significant things weaved to create the someone I hope one day I can be.

Let's see if I can actually stay on this road to growing up, because sometimes I think I never will!
