First of all, I think I should come clean. I am not actually a mouse. Surprising, I know. Anon Y. Mouse is just an alias I like, and my profile picture is a leftover idea I had to go along with that alias. But I can assure you, that mouse captures my essence perfectly. Well, almost perfectly.
Moving on. To be honest, I don’t know how much to put here. I’m not even sure why I wanted to make this blog, other than I needed a corner of the Internet all to myself. I’m a selfish attention-hog. I am, really, but I don’t let myself act like it in real-life (usually), which is why I so desperately wanted a place where it’s all about me. But now that I’m here, I don’t know what I’m doing. Do I allow myself to show my inner bitter, snotty brat, or do I put on another façade? I’m shy, there’s a high chance my all-knowing parents will find this blog, and I don’t want to piss people off. Oh look. First cuss word on the blog. Anyway, what I’m trying to say is I don’t want to make a scene, but at the same time that’s the whole reason I set up this site. I have so many ideas rumbling around in my head everyday, too many opinions, and I just need someone else to hear them. I don’t expect Internet fame. I’m just looking for a few, invisible readers to see my words, take them in, and do what they will with them.
I don’t know how long this blog will last. I don’t know what this blog will contain. I don’t know how many fights I’ll get into or how many nice people I’ll meet. I just need to try, and it never hurts to try, right?
And a nice side-effect of me posting my life for all the world to see, is that maybe I’ll help someone, or let them see they’re not alone. If I can just give one person hope, my blog will be worth the slightly-paranoid stress it brings me.
Some important things to keep in mind. I’m a girl. I’m 19. I live somewhere in the USA. I’m Roman Catholic. The views I express on this blog do not necessarily reflect the views held by the Roman Catholic Church. Please do your research before judging Her. In reality I try to love and respect all people. On this blog I will probably occasionally be a judgmental bitch. (Ooo, second cuss-word.) I both love and hate writing. I love music. I love my faith. I love my family, as annoying and mean as they can be. I usually have a sarcastic sense of humor. I’ve got a bunch of mental illnesses, the main ones being Depression, Anxiety, and OCD. Yes, I’ve been diagnosed by a professional. No, I am not ashamed. Yes, I intentionally set this blog up during National Suicide Prevention Week. I will probably annoy and/or offend at least one person during the lifetime of this blog. I am not interested in fighting. Don’t let any negativity on this blog ruin your life.
I guess that’s all. Thanks for reading, and keep on keepin’ on.
