Life’s a Show

I feel like now is a good time to explain the tagline of my blog– “Life’s a show. Here’s mine.”

Ever since I was little, I’ve noticed that life is essentially a huge show of impressing people, and the people who “win” are the best actors/actresses. (assuming that it’s possible to win at life, which it isn’t)

I learned that it’s not worth doing anything unless everyone  else sees it and that  how others perceive you is more important than who you actually are, because it’s all about appearances.  And this really annoys me, because almost everyone (including me) does things just to improve their own show and not because they want to.

Especially in terms of school and around other people, there’s always this pressure to act happy and “cool” and witty and un-awkward or whatever people these days need to be, or else people judge you. I would love to say that I don’t care about what other people think and that I do what I want, but that’s  not the case. I do care about other people’s opinions of me, and most of the time, I don’t think it’s good.

So this blog is a continuation of my show to prove to you guys that I am cool  and interesting and completely not awkward at all. And I’m only being half sarcastic.

If people are going to judge me, I might as well choose the show that I  put on, and if I get to choose the show I put on, I might as well choose one that I like, which hopefully is what this blog becomes. My online show to the world. For the most part, I write about whatever I want, no matter how obscure or crazy the topic is, and I’m not really on a set posting schedule. (as most of you have probably noticed)

To those of you that actually read this far, would you mind telling me your opinion of my blog?  I didn’t want to ask when I first started blogging because there wasn’t enough to base stuff off of, but now that there’s a substantial number of posts, I’d appreciate some feedback.  And tell the truth please. People have said that I write like a 50 year old and that my posts are long and boring, and I’ve accepted that. (Although if you’ve read this far, it shouldn’t be boring…right?) Anyways, I’m looking forward to hearing from you in the comments!

  1. Well gee, I don’t know, I once helped a “more quiet girl” start a blogger, and she took it a step further and expanded her possibilities. I’m amazed that the blog has come this far.


  2. I actually really like your rambling, and feel that you put a lot of thought and deep thinking into your blog. It gives me a different perspective to listen to and understand.


  3. Agreeing with Annum here, I really enjoy reading your posts. I don’t actually get to talk to you that much (or at all) nowadays so it lets me see what is still going through your head :) and keep up with you…kinda
    I’m a fellow rambler so I’m totally cool with it.
    On another note, read “Self-Reliance” by Ralph Waldo Emerson, you may gain some insights?
