The (over)Thinker

I registered this blog over a month ago and have struggled with what to say for my first ever blog post. I thought of writing about my life up until this point, you know, where I was born, what I do for a living, what kind of pet I have, marital status, etc. But I realized that doesn’t really matter and I’m sure if this thing goes further than just one post then everyone can figure out who I am along the way (that is if anyone sticks around to hear the story).

I guess I will start by talking about why I even started this thing to begin with. It’s pretty simple, my sister told me to. She said I always had well thought out Facebook posts on serious issues. It was actually more of an “I don’t want to start a Facebook debate” type of style but whatever. There was a hot minute where I wanted to be a writer when I grew up but then college happened and I didn’t have the time to focus on it. Which really translated to “it’s nickel beer night at the bar so that ish can wait!”. I never thought about writing again until social media became the way of the world.

I remember in college having the internet on your cell phone made you rich as f*ck! Like, who could actually afford that on a student’s budget?! I could barely afford to text then. For you younger millennials that’s back when you had to pay per text or sign up for a whopping 400 texts a month (I know some of you just died a little remembering that. I did too.). Clearly my generation survived the text limit crisis of the early 2000’s because here we are, killin’ it with this social media shiz. Actually, we’ve all had a younger relative show us how to use Snapchat.

Enough about “the good ole days”… I guess I wanted to be a writer deep down because I have a lot to say and my family gets really sick of listening to me talk. I’m certain they all tune me out at some point. I know my husband definitely does! What I’m really trying to get out of this is more therapeutic for me than anything. I did a bunch a research on how to write a blog before I started this and all of them said I need to pick a theme. Well, that’s not going to happen because I honestly have no idea what to write about, I’m just going to write. I’m going to write about things that make my soul feel good. I could write about my family in one post and then how to decorate your house with thrift store finds in the next. It’s really gonna be one of those throw it at the wall and see what sticks kinda things. Either way I’m hoping my content is entertaining and/or helpful for someone or, at the very least, something for Moms to mock in their super secret Mommy Facebook groups (yeah, I see you bitches!).

So, here we go! Let’s hope I don’t totally suck!
