“A good poem is a contribution to reality. The world is never the same once a good poem has been added to it. A good poem helps to change the shape of the universe, helps to extend everyone’s knowledge of himself and the world around him.”
~ Dylan Thomas
I’m not brilliant at describing myself, but I’m an incoming college freshman (Professional Writing/Classics major) with a passion for writing and words in general. I’m an aspiring poet and journalist/editor, and writing pieces that people can truly relate to is what inspires me the most.
I’ve battled with depression and anxiety for the past two years, and only recently discovered that this was primarily due to my undiagnosed ADHD, inattentive type. After basically destroying everything in my life (besides my 4.0) during senior year, I’m sort of remaking myself, and my blog.
I was born in South Africa (yes there are white people in Africa), but I’ve lived in the States since I was 5.
If you hadn’t noticed, I reeeally like the colour purple. And piano , and nail polish, and Netflix, and yearbook, and eyeliner, and the library, and Latin, and mountains, and the forest, and Idaho, and traveling, and driving, and music, and Formula 1, and soccer, and quotes, and coffee, and my brothers.
I’m 18 – I’ve got to stop posting things like that. My interests include piano, yearbook, eyeliner, libraries, Latin, wilderness, traveling, driving, music, Formula 1, soccer, quotes, coffee, yoga, and my younger brothers. Oh, and forgetting to sleep because I’m wrapped up in a book and don’t notice that the sun is peeking over the horizon.
I love to write, so I do. I’m learning to follow my natural impulses when they aren’t harmful, because 18 years of suppressing everything gets to a person.
“Writing is the only thing that when I do it, I don’t feel like I should be doing something else.”
