So for once I’m actually posting something that isn’t a repost. Right? Maybe someone will get some enjoyment out of this.
I’ve been thinking. Life has been kinda crazy for me. I need a good outlet and blogging seems to be what I typically turn to. Good for you if you find any of my stories I’ll tell to be at all interesting. Who knows. Don’t know if you don’t try, right?
So I’ll get to the point a tad. First off I’ve been trying to find myself and have yet taken the time to do so. Well I’ve been married and separated within a year and 2 months of being together. Been a step parent. Dropped out of school gave up college. All that crazy crap. (Not going to write certain things) Not saying my life is shit but it is defiantly crazy I’d say.
So onto another subject. I do own my own cleaning business so I do have something going for my life so far! I’m 19 years old and obviously a female. I am going to graduate. Afterwards I’m going to go to college for psychology and do this on the side as a hobby. Besides that I don’t really do much. Well in the winter.
I had posted in my last blog that I write many stories. Well, I have decided to post one of them. The story is: who am I? It is a very good story and I would like to know what people think of it. So please comment 🙂
I just got back from my first day at high school. Well, all I have to say is that it wasn’t what I had expected it to be. My first day wasn’t bad, I just learned a lot more in this day then I have my whole life. As I went into Language Arts class the teacher passed out paper and asked us to write down who we were and then pass it up. We were supposed to describe ourselves so people could understand us better. For one I never really thought about this question a lot. When people asked me who I was all I had to say is, “I am Amber Staton.”
So, I was just sitting there thinking really hard and didn’t know what to put down. I picked up the pencil and started writing. I am Amber Staton and I am 14 years of age. I play softball and rugby for the school and have a lot of fun. I am smart, brave, sophisticated, intelligent, kind, trusting, soft-hearted, and…. At that point I stopped thinking. This is not really who I am, it’s who I want to be. I guess I have been answering this question wrong all my life. Then I thought even more. I don’t know who I am at all and I never really have. Instead of writing who I am I decided to write about how I don’t know who I am. This is how my essay went.
I am Amber Staton and I am 14. The truth is I don’t know who I really am. I know who I want to be but I don’t act in that way. There are many people like myself that doesn’t know who they really are inside. If everyone were to sit and think about this they would find that I am right. It is hard to know who you are when you are still a teenager and still growing. I am going to be more thoughtful of who I want to be and eventually become that person. I want to be trustworthy, kind, intelligent, sophisticated, brave, soft-hearted, loving, caring, and talented. Now the question still stands. Who am I really?
After I had handed the paper in to the teacher she called me up to talk to her. I thought I was going to be in trouble at that moment. My teacher asked me to read my paper out loud so everyone can think about the question more. So I did and at that moment I felt so smart and important I knew the rest of my first day was going to be a breeze. I just needed to answer that one question.
So, I just started this blog and I decided to write about writing books/stories for the first topic. I am working on a book right now called the Land of Wonders and Once Was, but I haven’t gotten that far yet. Writing is mainly what I do in my free time which I have a lot of. There were many times that I had started writing a book/novel and have never finished one because I got sick of writing it. So far I have three and a half chapters done and typed up; the writing process is very long. I have written many short stories that are finished though, some of them I will be sharing soon. I have always wanted to be a writer mainly because I want people to read what I am writing and get something out of it. That is one of the main reasons I started this blog. In every story I write there is a message that is sent to the person reading it. Most of the messages are for realizations about your own life and lessons you can learn from others mistakes. Many times writing helps me get away from the world. I can make my own world how I want it to be and write it all down. It helps my mind transform to a better state that makes me realize things that are happening are not so bad. I have found reading enjoyable and relaxing. If you like to write comment on what you like to write about.
