So, this is what it feels like to be a blogger. Based on the blogs I have had the unfortunate privilege of reading, I imagined that I would now–as a blogger–somehow feel some sort of entitlement or emancipating authority to share my deepest darkest ideation of my life. While I am by no standard an optimist, I do not feel that rumination of the adversities of one’s past is necessarily advantageous or healthy for anyone.

You’re welcome in advance.
