I feel like I haven’t introduced myself or explained precisely what I’m hoping for from this page. So, hi! Nice to meet you! I’m Vanessa, but you can call me V. I’m a recent high school graduate, and I’ll be a full-time university student studying Psychology starting this fall. Something that has always fascinated me is the human mind and connection. My favourite kinds of nights are ones with friends where we are chilling and talking about life and everything on our minds, which often leaves everyone emotional but simultaneously feeling liberated.
Now, let me tell you a secret. I have absolutely no idea what the hell I’m doing. This past summer, I’ve been in a bit of a rut because I feel bored with my life. Everything seems dull, and I’m craving for something to spice it up, but everything I’ve found to fill that desire has been short term. It honestly was a spur of the moment decision to make this blog! Spur of the moment choices is nothing new to me, though. As I’m creating this page, I’m learning along the way. It’s daunting, but I can’t wait to see where it will take me, who I’ll meet, and what stories I’ll hear and share.
How did I decide on my niche for this blog? Well, as I said earlier, I’ve always found the human mind so interesting, hence why I’m studying psychology. Think about how many people there are in this world and how every person has experienced life differently. Each person’s struggles and triumphs I believe are a source of inspiration, and there is something to learn from everyone’s story about yourself or the world around you. You, an ordinary person, have lived a life with so many little and big moments that have altered your perspective somehow. I want to create an environment to share what’s on my mind and dive deep into the things that I love, hate, pain me, and form who I am, and possibly inspire others to share too.
I’m so thrilled to be on this journey with you, and I’m ready to find beauty in the ordinary together!
