Sometimes I don’t blog because of timing, and sometimes I don’t blog because I have no idea what to write about. I think this is a trend amongst bloggers who don’t follow a schedule. I always have a lot to say, but that doesn’t mean I’m able to sit down and write about it.
I just finished finals week by writing a paper on Julius Caesar. To celebrate, I made a mug of cocoa and decided to write on my precious blog. Problem: I didn’t know what to write about. Because I was already texting my friend Jem, I asked for a solution…
Harry Potter was mentioned, so obviously I had to take his advice. We all need a little self-confidence boost in our lives, so below I wrote out seven things that make me awesome, no shame attached. I could write more, but seven is a magical number (Thanks, Harry Potter series) and I’m too lazy right now to think of more.
The Top Seven Reasons Why I Am Awesome
1. I have amazing people in my life.
2. I travel often and see wonderful sights.
3. I admit to proudly being a Harry Potter nerd.
4. I (almost) have my Bachelor’s in English Writing.
5. I am writing a novel.
6. I make others laugh.
7. I enjoy every moment.
To cover the seven above, I love my family and my friends. I am grateful for the people at my job and those I encounter in my academic life. Travel is my passion, something I try to do as often as possible and make the most of. Harry Potter is something that makes me nerdy, yes, but it has also saved my life in ways that I will discuss in another post. Obtaining a Bachelor’s in Creative Writing is a year or less away, and with that I will hopefully be able to help shape the written word in some form or another, which could possibly come from my novel, once finished and published. Laughter is the cheapest form of medicine, in my opinion, so I enjoy laughing and making others laugh. I’ve stopped taking my life for granted and have vowed to make the most out of every opportunity, no matter what it is.
I suppose I should also talk about why I’m hopeful in order to properly accept the challenge. I am hopeful because I know who I am and what I want out of life. I might not know my exact future, but I know who and what makes me happy, and I know that I am happy despite the little twists and turns that come about. I know a lot of people who are worried about their futures because people with degrees have trouble finding jobs in their fields, but I’m not concerned for myself. Location, career, and family will all come when they come. I may not make an absurd amount of money and I may not get recognized for my writing the way those I admire do, but I don’t need either in order to be happy. If I have enough money to survive and manage to get a few strangers to appreciate my writing, life is good. If I have people who love me and I love, life is awesome.
What makes you awesome?
