I’ve been blogging for less than 6 months now, and I decided to branch out my writings into other topics. Writing about Marvel, Pentatonix, college sports and reviews are fun but I feel comfortable enough now to share some personal opinions of mine and would love all of you to read it. I found this link on word press called the 30 day blogging challenge and I thought, why not? This challenge is meant for beginner writers that want to blog and see if they can write about 30 different topics. Even though I’ve been blogging for a while, I’ve decided to take this challenge. I feel like writing into different territories other than my usual norm would help me express my true thoughts and help me not be afraid of who I am. I also decided to take a hiatus from Facebook from the time being and focus solely on this little adventure. Everything on social media right now is affecting me in some weird way right now that I can’t explain and I hope that this writing challenge helps me get a clear visual on who I am. I will definitely be putting myself in a vulnerable state and just let my writing and feelings do the talking. I hope that all of you that are reading this will hopefully enjoy my opinions and topics that I discuss!
Day 1: Your current relationship, If single, discuss being single
Instead of taking it slow and simple, this challenge just wants me to dive right in it, huh? Well, as of now, I’m single. Being single is fun but it has its days. Do I want to be in a relationship? Absolutely. Do I like being single? Absolutely. I’m that type of person that doesn’t get out often and meet people. I like to stay in and don’t mind the conformity of my home. I’m also the shy one as well. You don’t see me introducing myself to new people or being the first to engage in a conversation. I am the texter, not the caller. Calling someone is definitely a fear of mine and I rarely call girls. The last time I was in a serious relationship was back in my sophomore year of college, 5 years. Wow. Yes, I’ve gone a few dates since then but haven’t found “The One.” Reflecting on those dates, I think I tried too hard to make those dates into a possible relationship. The dates were fun but I guess the mentality to make it into a relationship was too quick. I’m 24 and I’m always thinking about marrying someone special, starting a family and having kids. I guess being single makes me think about those things all the time and wonder if I’ll meet that special someone.
Don’t get me wrong, I like being single. The number one thing why I like it is the simplicity. I can do anything on my terms and worry about myself. If my friends want to catch up and have a drink, I’m there. My nephew’s baseball season is occurring right now and I can enjoy a baseball game on my free time. This summer, I’ll be going on a cruise with a couple of family friends and enjoy that week off work and have some fun in the sun. Even though I want to be in a relationship, its best that I’m single for the time being. I am still asking questions like what do I want? What’s best for me? I guess I’m still finding myself and growing to appreciate who I am. Honestly, I still struggle with myself saying I’m not good enough or wishing I could do things differently. I know things take time and I whole heartedly believe that everything happens for a reason. I have many things in my life that I appreciate. Friends, family, my job, my passion for music, etc. The list goes on. Hopefully, I’ll find someone that appreciates the same values as I do.
Thanks for reading!
