Oh, the internet. So much possibility. So much garbage content. I’m here to add to the pile!
Welcome to my site. It’s a personal blog, so restrain your expectations. This is more of a fun place for me to talk about the things that I find interesting and to share what’s going on in my profoundly exciting life.
Who am I? I’m glad you asked! My name is Rachel. I’m an artist and writer-type who likes to babble on endlessly about nothing in particular. This site will hold those ramblings (aren’t you lucky, dear reader!)
Here is an action shot of my writing station, probably.
Like many of you, I find that there’s oodles of stuff I want to do with my life. Unfortunately, I have a hard time motivating myself to do any of it. Depression has a way of doing that to you. I know. It’s a big, scary, embarrassing word, but hear me out:
For a long time, I didn’t want to admit that was the issue. Now that I have, I can’t tell you how much of a relief it has brought! Rather than this nameless, invisible force that constantly tells me not to try, I can call it out for what it is and move the f*uk on.
I’ve been told that the only way to keep depression from taking up the whole of my thoughts is to cultivate some good old fashioned discipline and accountability. And…since no one is willing to be my personal 24/7 life coach, I decided a blog might be the next best thing.
My plan is to write here every day or nearly so and see where the digital winds move me. Will I win a Bloget™ Award? Probably not. Is the Bloget™ Award a real thing? That’s not the point.
I appreciate anyone who has made it this far. We are on a journey, you and I. What an exciting prospect! I don’t have a golden ring to throw into a volcano or giant planet-destroying battle station to blow up. However, I think we can find some fun ways to distract ourselves along the way.
Thanks for being here!
