Profile Information

Why I Write

            I write because I wish to articulate the clutter in my brain, to express my desire for showmanship and to enjoy myself. Throughout the day, my brain fills up with crazy ideas, funny stories and awkward situations.  Normally I express these through conversation but writing them down allows for reflection in the future. The fleeting thoughts, and midnight inspirations occur so instantaneously not writing them down would be disrespecting my own brain. The feeling that I need to perform excites me while also setting off my uncomfortable alarms and anxiety sirens. Sometimes I rise to the challenge and perform well, other times I fall flat on my face either way I learn lessons about myself. I try to enjoy life as much as possible and have been known to laugh at the wrong times, smile too big and talk way too loud. Writing allows me to express my political opinions in disguised metaphors and still attempt to make women swoon.  Each word I choose to put down speaks about me, the author, no matter the subject, which slightly terrifies me because I prefer face-to-face greetings and have no earthly idea what your perception of me will be from this paragraph.
