So once again I’ve decided to start a blog I’ve tried before and sadly failed to keep up with it. Only this time it’s different. I feel like I have so much to say and want to share it with the cyber-world. I haven’t exactly ever been the happiest person or maybe it just seems that way. I guess, not many “big” things make me happy I don’t exactly need to have a lot of friends or do silly things or go to extreme or non-extreme places to be happy. I'm a very simple person and I’ve learned over the years that people don’t get that about me. I'm easily happy talking to friends once in a while hanging with extended family once in a while (I know you all will always be there and knowing that is enough for me. I’m so grateful for each and every single one of you) I don’t need dinner dates or outings every week just to keep my spirits alive. I'm happy with a cup of coffee, Note that none of this is a lie, I'm happy with a book , a keyboard or pen and paper that allows me to tell stories, a camera hanging off my arm day and night. I'm happy with sitting in front of the TV once a week for a couple of hours (sometimes none.) I'm happy being in my room alone… listening to music, alone. I'm happy being a Nanny as my day Job it’s absolutely most fun and very entertaining. I've come to realize that everyone in my immediate family, are realistic people and I myself is the black sheep because I seem to be the only dreamer. I didn’t realize this right away. Out of high school I needed that life, the life of having many friends going places constant drama seeing family regularly being bubbly being social I'm absolutely none of that now. I'm still friendly, though, I don’t randomly talk to strangers like I used to. It wasn’t until a few years after high school when I tried work and college when I started to really find myself although many people think I have fallen or let myself go I don’t see it that way at all this is more than that I’ve started to realize that coffee is my addiction that I am absolutely passionate about photography writing and books that I'm great at paper crafting and actually see it as a future career. I want to write a book and I want it to be published… to be read by millions and make it on the New York Times best selling list. I want directors to take my book and make it a movie. I dream and that’s a big dream and heck yeah that scares me probably as much as wanting a little café that is also a gift shop that focuses on local hand-made crafts from various types of people that sells books ( Maybe my own!) by local authors or maybe my all time favorites ones that I recommend and that scares me just as much as making a business out of handmade Invitations ( I have been doing this a while) I have dreams and I like to dream big and if my dreams don’t scare me than I'm obviously not dreaming big enough. And I'm shaking out of my boots so I think I'm dreaming pretty big. I don’t really know what I expect to come out of this blog I just really, really want to share my life story with others who relate to me or don’t and maybe understand people like me because I'm not getting any younger I'm twenty five and I'm a late bloomer at getting my life started but so what not everyone begins at the same time. I never wanted to rush into anything and I love that I'm taking my time. I believe everyone starts there life at their own pace and this is mine. I don’t need anyone else to believe in me so long as I do.
My name is Sandi and I’m from the beautiful state of Oregon. If you’ve been here I'm sure you know how beautiful it is. I live in the city somewhat a city anyway it isn’t big but it’s not small either, a little in between. I know that the way I'm living life now isn’t exactly the healthiest way; getting to comfortable at being alone and becoming anti-social but as I said above I have big dreams and I have every intention of making them come true. If not all, at least one it’s never too late to start and I'm starting now. I hope you’ll come to enjoy my blog as I'm planning to share this wonderful scary yet exciting journey with you.
Thanks for reading!
