Identity Crisis

I've always had a natural knack for detecting when someone isn't being genuine. It's a good gift to have and has prevented me from making a lot of bad decisions and wasting time on people who didn't deserve it. That's why it's so crazy to me that I've been trying to be someone I'm not on my blog.

I follow a lot of blogs of cute girls with interesting lives and quirky habits, and I guess I thought that pretending to post like them would give me those lives. But that's pointless because I love my life, and I love the way that I am.

I'm not a manic pixie DIY queen who loves everything and everyone. I do like to drink a lot of whiskey and talk about great ideas and promote positivity. I like to learn about people doing interesting things, and save instructions for projects that I might undertake someday, but don't quite have the drive to do yet. And honestly I would rather watch Netflix and nap then spend all day baking cookies and decorating my house.

Bottom Line: I'm tired of pretending and trying to get online strangers to think I'm someone I'm not. I am who I am, and I won't hide that anymore.

From now on, this blog will be a tribute to things that I enjoy, tidbits from my real life, and anything else I want it to be because it's my blog. Deal.

I don't know who I'm writing this to, because only two of you follow me (and one is related to me), but whatever. Whiskey drunk and ranting.

(I wrote this last night and saved it to check for typos. I'm not drunk at 10 AM.)

Yes! Yes. I did this too. I would do things just to impress the internet - but not anymore. Now I just do what I do, and I archive the things I want to on my blog. That's all :)
