chances are pretty good that if you're reading this right now, it's because you clicked the link that I posted on facebook, so hello, non-strangers. I bet you already know, or think you know, a lot about me.
I'm not big on posting a lot of things on facebook because there is just so much already there from everyone, and I don't want to add to all of that. but the beauty of this blog is that you get to make the conscious decision to click over and read it. it's your choice. so if you don't like something you see here, it's your choice to read it, or to leave and not read it.
this is my life, and this is where we are. I hope that reading this will help you not only learn something about me, but about yourself and the people around you. we're all we have.
why are you starting a blog, and why are you choosing to make it public knowledge to the people in your life this time?
I considered going to a therapist to talk about my feelings. you know, like a mental health professional. but then I decided that I didn't really want to talk to someone I don't know about the things in my life, so I made the choice to instead buy a domain and post things publicly on the internet that people I already know could read if they wanted to know what was actually going on in my real life. maybe sometimes it'll be paragraphs long, maybe other times just a few sentences. maybe I'll post every day, or maybe it'll be weeks between posts. we'll see what happens. sometimes I post photos with a lot of words in the caption on instagram, and it made me realize that I missed blogging and having a place for my words to go with pictures too. I guess the short answer is that I want to be heard, but in a place where people get to make the decision on whether or not they want to listen.
okay, but what does "whispered ramblings" mean?
well, whispered is because I'm generally quiet. until you really get to know me, and then you would learn that there are some days when I just can't stop talking or laughing. but you know that scene in Parks & Rec where Jerry is talking, and he's not used to talking to people for that long, so the things he says don't make sense anymore? that's how I feel.
I guess if you have any further questions, you probably know how to find me.
