Welcome to 2014! Like many, I feel motivated by the fresh start of a new year so I will be participating in WordPress’s Zero to Hero 30 Day Blogging Challenge. Today’s challenge is to write a post to introduce yourself. My blog is about a year old now, so I guess its about time for a proper introduction.
- Name: Kaitlyn
- Age: 21
- Occupation: student
- Sign: Sagittarius
- Obsessions: books, Reese’s cups, British TV
- Currently reading: Watchmen by Alan Moore
- Currently listening to: Myth by Beach House
Why I’m here.
My reasons for starting a blog are not unlike many others. I wanted a place to document various creative endeavors (mail art, photography, DIY projects) and personal growth that allows me to interact with other people. I also want to use this blog to share my experiences in the mental health world, both as a student and a patient as I learn to manage my depression and PTSD. I hope that by being honest and open about these things I can paint a clearer picture about what it really means to have a mental illness and maybe even provide a bit of comfort to those who are in situations similar to mine. I am going to think of this blog as an experiment- I’m excited to see where it goes as I get in the habit of posting more regularly.
Check out the Zero to Hero challenge and come back tomorrow for my day 2 entry! Leave a link in the comments with your introduction post.
