Ah, the fateful 15th entry of my blog.
Through all the hard work, through all the many times that I had to shake my head in order to arrive at a topic worth pursuing, I have finally reached this most memorable entry.
So this time, I will turn this entry into something really me. A Blog is, I think, one big oxymoron. Blogs are one of the most personal things a person can have, and at the same time, one of the most public.
I have always had a teeny problem about letting people read what I write. Unless it is published (in the school newsletter or literary journal), I keep it hidden and for my eyes only. I am the same even with my school essays. If my grade didn’t depend on it, I would hide my essays from my teachers too.
There are people who find it easy to show their work to others, but I am not one of them. I hide them in secret notebooks, save them in password protected files, or hide behind a pseudonym.
This blog forced me to turn away from my usual patterns. Do I resent it? Not really. As I continuously wrote for this blog, I have come to one conclusion.
I cannot hide beneath a rock anymore or step back every time someone ones to get a better look at me and my personality. We are entering a world with lesser secrets, and who am I negate it?
So read away, people. More are coming, and I’ll let you get more than a peek.
