Profile Information

I enjoy the weight of the pen, the smell of fresh paper, the thrill of spinning a story. I hope you enjoy my works, as they are based on my own experiences and struggles. I know that my activity has remained inactive since 2009, but I have grown much as a person and am now a more capable writer (though I have found that countless research papers have resulted in a much drier feel to my writing style) . Feel free to send a message my way, I will gladly check out your work or will respond to comments on my own.

More about me:

While sociable, I had never felt like I fit in with others, even my own family. I was always very bookish, quiet, and passive. Much has changed since as I have grown to be fiercely independent and more confident in my abilities. I have learned that belongingness stems not from being denied from the company of others, but denial of yourself. Acceptance is the only cure to overcoming the insecurities that youth presents. 

I have also come to realize how ignorant I was in the past. We take for granted our health, our youth, our lives. Being diagnosed with an autoimmune disease drastically changed my life. It was during this time that I learned strength and determination. I told myself I would get better, I would perservere despite my illness, and that my illness would not hinder me from fulfilling my dream. I cast aside all feelings of self pity and instead  I felt appreciation to have had this opportunity for self-growth.

Taking my experiences thus far into account, I have come to the conclusion that people do indeed change (which I did not believe before). In fact, we change day by day, shaped by every experience as insignificant as they might seem. My advice to you, dear reader, is this: take every bad moment in life and learn to grow from it, for that is the only way to truly live beyond society's mediocre expectations of you.

That is all,

Antonia
