So I’m a writer. I simply think that that* should be known. I write a lot of poetry and short stories, but I enjoy writing about anything really. I have a Tumblr blog (Scarlet City) where I post a lot of my poetry and writing. I’m not as active on there as I should be, but I am working on it. I made that freshman year of high school, and that was really my only attempt at blogging (which is really a huge fail…) So I’m not sure what I’m going to be blogging about here really, not yet anyway. I’ll be talking about me and my life and my random problems.** So, before I get distracted, let me tell you a few things about myself, things that will be added to an about me page later (maybe).
I am 17, I live in Chicago, I love to write (obviously), and it is now apparent that I enjoy the usage of parenthesis for side thoughts (because it helps me organize my main thoughts while saying all the little other unnecessary things I want to [like this]). I’ll be graduating from high school with come June, and that is exciting and also a bit scary. I have terrible vision. 20/200 + astigmatism in my left eye, and 20/70 in my right eye. A lot of my life I have lived without glasses. Thankfully, I have a new pair on right now. Let me be the first to tell you that it is nice to go to an event with a large amount of people and be able to actually make out the faces of individual people, as opposed to relying on color blurs and deductive reasoning to figure out who people are from a distance. My eyes really appreciated my glasses for my most recent trip to the house of blues. I have a 1 in 10 chance of developing schizophrenia (as opposed to the 1 in 100 chance the rest of you have). Also, very fun fact, I was born on mother’s day. Let it be known that my short term memory is horrid. I enjoy photography (though I need a new camera or phone with a better camera), playing piano (I’m self taught and play by ear), all types of music, technology in general (all things digital), and just enjoying all the little things in life. There’s a lot of other little things I can say, but then this post would be way too long, and I don’t want to scare you away. Eventually, it’ll all get mentioned.
I suppose this concludes my introduction. I’ll talk about a lot of random things that go on in my life, my thoughts, and whatever else crosses my mind, so do be prepared. Oh yeah, before I forget, If you visit my Tumblr blog, do know that I plan on updating it very soon. I’ll plug the link again down below my little footnotes. I’d appreciate it if you read what I have up there though.
*I enjoy saying “That that” and “had had.” for some odd reason.
**My train of thought is weird sometimes. I just feel like that should be known.
