I’m a teenager on the inside but a good few years older on the outside and I have not yet decided what I want to do when I grow up.
I am an emotional logical person whose emotions stubbornly persist in defying logic.
I am an introvert, Bible believing, recovering alcoholic, who highly values friendship and honesty.
I believe that age is just a number and that all people are approximately the same age as me.
I have two teenage daughters who I regularly assume are actually slightly older than I am. They are my best friends who give me advice on matters pertaining to fashion, hair, makeup, relationships, problem solving and prioritising. In turn I advise them on such matters as the organisation of homework, cooking, cleaning, grocery shopping and how best to clean various household appliances.
The aforementioned teenagers also teach me about conflict resolution, patience, well-reasoned argument, teenage culture, persuasive speech and staying awake when driving at night.
My mum always told me I was too honest for my own good and anything I say will be absolutely true to the best of my knowledge. If you insist on reading my blog there may well be times when you want to cry ‘too much information’ or ‘I didn’t need to know that’.
Real-life friends might eventually find me here but for the moment I am being careful how much personal information I give. I’m pretty sure that if a friend came across me on here right now, it would take them a while to figure out that I’m me. I don’t do secrets but I want to be able to explore who I am and what I really think without having to consider who others think I am.
I hope that by my writing here someone will feel less like an alien; someone will be inspired; someone will be encouraged; and I will have a better idea of who I am and why I am here.
