You know it took me a while to write what I would say about myself. Should I say my height? My likes or dislikes? I find that one of the most difficult things to do is to write about oneself. So I decided to start this how I usually would- with a quote that expresses the moment of emotion and/or thought. So here goes nothing.
“Maybe our favorite quotations say more about us than about the stories and people we’re quoting.”
When I saw this I really contemplated the meaning of what John Green meant when he said that. Did he mean that the quotes we like completely define who we are? I seriously doubt it. In my own opinion, which could be considered quite inexperienced in most areas of life, John Green refers that our favorite quotes are an example of what we prefer to go by in life. We can either read it and brush it off our shoulders or we can actually absorb the wise words and learn and go by them.
“Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.”
Yes, for all of you that have seen the movie “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” you know that this quote is from that movie. I started this blog for the exact reason that on here I’ll ponder any thoughts, things, or ideas that interest me in any small way. I admire this quote because of how true it really is. Life does go by pretty fast and each and every person on this Earth should want to try new things, go on adventures, and just live without life being planned. To just see where the wind takes you. Overall, the things on my blog might be the most personal thoughts or just flat out what I thought about what I had for breakfast.
So I am an American Gal who has moved quite a few times and gotten the opportunity to experience different cultures and meet interesting people, and I hope you decide to go through this rollercoaster I like to call life with me.
