I’m back with a new blogger, namely Kelly from Aura’s Child! She’s such a sweet person so you should definitely check out her blog. But first, her post!
Tell us something about yourself: Who are you?
Hello! I’m Kelly Kawaguchi.
I am a very flawed and fairly uninteresting and untalented enigma on the internet. I like talking to myself and pretending I know what I am doing. I take pride in my personality, although, I can be a careless person much of the time. I pity very little and don’t apologize for my strong opinions. I am fickle and confused about just about every aspect of myself and the world.
Fun fact: My keyboard’s letters “g” and “p” don’t work. I add in those letters later after I’m done typing, so I apologize if I missed filling in any.
What is your blog about and what are you planning to do with it?
I write about my opinions and feelings about all sorts of topics, events in my life, etcetera. I will probably hit just about every topic, from recipes to literature to world current events.
I would like for my blog to, potentially, become an outlet for people who would like to express their thoughts, experiences, and such.
Why did you start blogging?
I started off by posting a journal entry. Essentially, it was going to be my online diary. Things were getting rough and I knew I needed an outlet for my thoughts and feelings. Blogging let my mind express what it needed.
What Should I Write?
My mind has been a mess lately. I want direction. But I guess everyone wants direction. Or do we already have a direction, we just do not see it yet?
I love to write but I have little skill in it. I am interested in movies and nature and health and animals and botany and so many other things. I read somewhere that you spend approximately 80,000 hours of your life working. I don’t know if it’s just me, but that is quite a few hours to spend doing something you may not enjoy.
I want so much to enjoy life. But is that just a new way of thinking? A western culture way of thinking?
That doesn’t mean it’s a wrong way of thinking, just maybe a more self-centered way.
Hundreds of years ago, people really had a place in society. Each had a job to do. Sure there were those that were privileged and those who were trampled on by society, but for the most part, people were all part of a big working machine. We all had more purpose in my opinion.
Side note: I’m not saying back then was “better”.
Now it seems to me everyone is looking for a new way to please themselves. Even if people do things for others, many are just seeking for their own fulfillment.
What are we going to waste our lives on next? Is there a right or wrong answer?
This post was very much so a stream of consciousness. I wanted to whip up an interesting post, but whenever I began typing, it felt fake. I want my blog to be real, raw, and beyond all else, I want it to look like me.
