Share my life, with me

Who would’ve thought that I would end up journaling my days on a website? Surely not me. But, where do I start?

I’ll start (I guess) with the basics. I’m 20 years old, go to university, have my own dreams and goals, and an urge to share my life and experiences with others. I have to mention, my writing here will be quite informal and won’t follow rules, you know, just to give myself the freedom of expressing myself better.

Now you might be wondering what I have to share. To be honest, a lot. My whole life has been a rollercoaster, with many highs and lows that shaped me. Maybe one day I will be able to see it on the big screen as well. I know you might laugh and find it funny that I dream of that, but at one point I will share that story as well. Right now, I want to focus on how I’m managing life during a pandemic. I’m sure you are sick and tired of hearing about it, but trust me, it won’t be depressing things.

At the moment I’m back home for the holidays, so my real life is on pause. You know, I live double lives. My parents are known people, so I have to watch how I present myself around them, the huge community that knows them, and of course online. But when I’m not on the spotlight with them, I get to be myself; my true self. Few people have seen that side, and university has given me the space and freedom to be able to be me. You might question that if people know me and my family then why am I sharing stories public? Easy. Stage name. No pictures of me. Easier to share without putting my parents reputation in danger. Maybe at one point I’ll find the courage to be myself even in front of them, but for now, I prefer to play the little innocent daughter act when I’m with them.

I’ve been back for two weeks, and life has not been more boring. I love home, but the essence of fun is lost here; sometimes at least. I’ll start posting daily when I’m back in my little dorm on what is happening, but until then, I will share a daily backstory in order for people to be caught up with my life. It only seems fair. I’ll talk about my studies, my very messy love life, my family life, my friends, and all the fun and weird things that I get to see and live everyday. I am thankful for my life, I enjoy every aspect of it, mostly cause I wired my brain to see “the half full” in every situation. I’ll be very explicit and detailed with everything so buckle up, cause you’re in this with me.

I think I’ll stop now. I really do hope you join me on my day to day life. See you soon and stay safe.

I have stories to tell; and many based on my day to day life. I want to share them, mostly because I love writing. Join my 20yo self in my life journeys.
