Hallo fellow bloggers! (Is “hallo” a British thing? I said it cause it’s Afrikaans and I like to pretend that I actually know more than 10 words from the language I’d be fluent in if I hadn’t emigrated 11 years ago. But maybe it’s British too. Sorry).
I have a question. Also, I might make questions to y’all a daily thing, because I like finding stuff out. So….
Q. Who knows about your blog? Are your family, your friends, your colleagues, your schoolmates, aware that you have your own little world, consisting of anywhere from 20 to 20,000 people? If not, why?
My answer (if you care): No one. Actually, I take that back. My cousin knows, because I wanted to put a picture of him up and thought I should ask his permission first. But he is sworn to secrecy. I think my family is/was vaguely aware I have/had a WordPress, but I’m pretty sure I gave them the impression that I took everything from it down or deleted it. Which is good.
I like to have my own place, besides a diary, to express myself without having to worry about every other person interrogating or hassling me about everything I say. Even if no one read it I’d be grateful for my blog because I feel like I can just get all these things in my brain out there, somewhere. Because sometimes it’s almost physically painful to keep all that stuff contained. My brain is basically a fireworks show of information, ranging from stupid trivia to the all-important ACT I take next week to the meaning of life.
Actually, two nights ago I found this “diagram” of my brain I drew last year in math (because what else is that class good for?).
I was really stressed, okay? But I feel like that’s a pretty accurate representation. It’s how I’m feeling right now about everything.

All my history that’s due tomorrow.
Guess I’ll be up all night.
Tootsiens, my lovelies (and I know that’s not British).
