I started this blog Monday, August 4, 2008. I was just about to embark on my senior year in college and needed something that meant something. I was in this weird place in my life, figuring things out, messing out, falling down, picking myself up and continuing on. Blogging just felt right, a release to express my feelings.

I'm not the kind to express my feelings very often, I'm really good at holding stuff in and getting over it. But this blog has allowed me to share all those feelings and it's been the best release I've had. This is one of my favorite quotes from my post called "Enjoy the map-of-me" written back on August 6, 2008. It's a perfect explanation of how I viewed my blog then and how I still view it today.
A blog is perfect because it is something to explain me, and not to be judged, or criticized, but to be heard. Isn’t that what everybody wants, is to be heard? To explain their side of the story, their opinion, their hopes&dreams.
To sum it all up, This is it.  
 This is where I write. This is where I sit down, and open my heart. This is where I write things too hard to speak aloud. This is where I miss you. This is where I try and find the feeling of prickled skin. This is where I turn the music up. This is where I tell you my dreams. This is where I tell the truth. This is where I tell you all that I know. This is where I cry. This is where I reassure you and tell you that i’ll be ok. This is the sign you’ve been looking for. This is where I find grace. This is where I talk to strangers. This is where I keep my peace, my hope, my love, my happiness, my fears. This is where the wind blows. You were meant to read these words. This is the mulberry bush. And around and around we go, together.
My blog has always been this amazingly honest and raw place where I go when I need to share my life. It's been a huge part of my life and I hope you enjoy it. If you find one thing that inspires you, challenges you or encourages you then I feel like this blog is a success.
