I am not a fantastic writer.
But there is something inside me that still wants to do it. I’ve always wanted to blog, but the task had seemed too daunting. What would I talk about? Art, probably. Or maybe about being 21, trying to do battle with my anxiety and depression through creative outlets and yoga and mindfulness.
Maybe this blog will go nowhere. But I would like to think this will become a place I can write regularly. I used to have such big dreams about being one of those famous bloggers a couple years ago. I used to think “One day! I’m going to make all my money staying at home and blogging to billions of people!”
Heh. But that is a very shallow reason to start any blog. So I guess that’s why I waited until now – I want this to be fun. Like a side project in between painting and sketching and stretching my limbs into various contorted poses.
Maybe I will blog about my brush with Buddhism in basic training before I joined the Air Force two years ago. I’m learning more about it now. Every morning I like to listen to wise words on youtube (lol) by various speakers such as Ajaht Braham and others. I would like to go on a Buddhist retreat someday, or a small Pilgrimage through the Mount Raineir trails in Washington. Or maybe I can join WOOF and volunteer on an organic farm in California or Norway. Gosh, I want to travel. I’m going to do everything I can to be the interesting person I imagine I could be one day.
When I’m old and weathered I want to speak three foreign languages. I want to tell grandkids about taking care of exotic animals in a shelter and cliff diving and rock climbing in Japan (I’m told it’s amazing).
I think I will make this blog a record of my dreams, thoughts, and experiences. I guess I doesn’t matter what I do with it. Afterall, who would read it! Well, whoever you are out there in the wide yonder of the internet – if you are reading this – welcome to Birdseedmedley. I’m Kyana. Pleased to meet you~
