My name is Salina; the girl behind the blog.
If you’re wondering what’s special about me, then don’t bother because I’m just another ordinary person with a wild dream of becoming something one day. To be known for something before I die. Oh! How cliché is that? But it’s true, plain and simple. However, there is something that I’d like you to know about me: I write because I’m passionate about it. There are some people who join the blogging community in hopes of earning some cash (which is great, I have nothing against that) but that’s not why I started personally. When I was thirteen, I started writing out my emotions on whatever little piece of paper I could find, or I’d write them out on my phone. It’s something that I did a lot without realizing the remedy that was brought upon me. It helped me cope with my feelings in a way that I never knew would be possible. Writing, to me, is like having a conversation with yourself, your soul, and your heart. When I write things down, I take a step forward into unraveling a piece of myself that I never knew existed. Maybe that’s one thing special about me, isn’t it? Anyway, today I stand strong at the age of seventeen, still writing. One thing I want to get out of this blog, aside from healing myself in the process, is to find people who can relate to the way I feel. Every blog post is a conversation starter, a way to get to know someone else better, and there is no better feeling than knowing that you’re not going through something alone. I want to be known for something, like I said, and if it means to make someone else feel better, even if it’s just one person, it could even be you reading this at this very moment, right now, I’d be at peace. So join me on this whirlwind of emotions. It’ll be messy sometimes, but don’t act like I haven’t warned you.
With all the love,
