I've never blogged before and I'm a bit terrified.
I'm not the kind of person who will put my thoughts out there for others to see. Not that I am entirely self-conscious doing it this way because I don't know anyone reading this, but still...it's a little weird for me. I'm normally a quite, introspective person. I wish I had more good things to say, but too often I am more comfortable when put in the "listening" position. There are times when I'm listening to a conversation that's going on, and I feel like I have something really good to add to it. These times are rare -- but I just wish I had the self-confidence to speak up. Now it seems I have gotten myself into the habit of just slinking around in the background, listening and observing. I bet if I suddenly jumped into the middle of a conversation and said something really profound, everyone would poop their pants!
Anyway, I'm new at this. I need release of some sort; a place where I am free to say things I am thinking and feeling. I randomly stumbled across this website today and it seems like the perfect opportunity to do so. I'm hoping to find a haven here, if you will...a place where I can feel confident to post my thoughts, read others', and maybe even make some friends in the midst. We'll see.
It's 10:00 on a Friday night. I'm exhausted after the first full week of classes. But I'm feeling terribly lonely and cut off from the world. I don't have anything to do or anyone to talk to. Sigh. Sorry if this sounds pathetic, but I'm just trying to put my feelings out there, in hopes that admitting them somehow will make them go away, or easier to accept. Does that make sense?
