Several people in the past had encouraged me to start a blog, but I was always really hesitant to do so. I was afraid that sharing my thoughts and opinions and writing about my life would come off a little narcissistic. That was until May 21, 2013, when I could think of nothing but the tornado victims in my home state and feel nothing but pride for the people I was surrounded by. All I wanted to do that day was shout a giant THANK YOU to every person I know just for being who they are. So I started this blog, and then I remembered that I kind of love writing. And now I try to keep up with it on occasion to continue saying thank you to anyone who happens to read it once in a blue moon. So, thanks for reading.
