For my first-ever post, I wanted to give you a run-down of who I am and why I am blogging. And what you can expect from this site.
Believe it or not, this is actually a school assignment. But, since I love to write, I have decided to continue this and post whatever comes to mind. So you might visit my blog one day and read about movie scores, then check in another day and see a post on apple juice, then come back in a week and be greeted by a quote from someone or other. . .you get the idea? There is no bounds to my randomness.
If you’ve read my profile, then you have a basic understanding of who I am. I have five younger siblings, one of whom is adopted from Ukraine. I am the experiment child. If you’re the eldest child in your household, you understand exactly what I mean — you have to wait ages to watch things, get a cell phone, drive, try new things, etc. But being the oldest has its perks. Extended bed time, anyone? #Score
My dad is a music minister and my mom has homeschooled me since birth (along with my three brothers and two sisters). Yes, I am a Christian and my faith is the drive behind everything that I aspire to do, whether it be my music or writing. I have trusted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior and strive to make him the center of my life. Because my faith is such a big part of my life, I’m going to give you a super-short version of my testimony: I was raised in the church and taught from a very young age that Jesus died on the cross to save me from my sins. I acknowledged Christ as Lord of my life when I was 7, but didn’t truly understand what it meant until I was older. My faith in God is not my parents’ faith. Let me make that very clear. I have set out to shape my own faith in pursuing truth through reason, not just by blind belief. And I believe firmly that God is real and that Jesus Christ is the only way to heaven. If you have any questions about my testimony, I would love to share the details with you!
Also, I play piano and flute, and love to sing. I enjoy occasionally composing music as well. Writing is my second-favorite past-time, behind reading. My favorite genres include fantasy, mythology, and dystopia. On top of that, basketball is my all-time favorite sport. (Go Spurs!!!)
Last but not least: You don’t have to worry about objectionable content on this blog. I won’t posting anything inappropriate or crass. So please feel free to browse as I update! I have no idea what I will be posting — basically, whatever comes to mind!
Finally, thanks for stopping by! I will be blogging something else soon, so feel free to come back. I’d love to hear your opinion!
