Hello there world.
Long time, no blogging.
And I was going to start this post by apologizing for that, but then I decided that I shouldn't
You see, in our English class the other day we read Charles Bukowski's So You Want to be a Writer. In it he says:
"If it doesn't come bursting out of you
in spite of everything,
don't do it.
unless it comes unasked out of your
heart and mind and your mouth
and your gut,
don't do it.
if you have to sit for hours
staring at your computer screen
or hunched over your
searching for words.
don't do it."
I loved that, so relevant. It applies to to everything in life; if it isn't your passion, is it really worth doing? As the end of senior year inches closer, it seems that question is what everyone is thinking about.
Anyways, back to how it relates to the blog. There are some days, like today, that I want to write and feel like I have something to say. But recently, I haven't had the time or desire to sit down and write. And there's no point trying to force it. By living and experiencing life, there isn't always time to recap it. From dance performances, spirit week, college visits, and mother daughter fashion show, these last few weeks have been full of excitement and moments that will soon become fond memories of our senior year.
So that's my explanation and semi-apology for the lack of blogging. And now that spring break is finally upon us (I'm writing this in my cousin's New York City apartment!), perhaps I'll have more to share.
Happy Easter weekend everyone!
