I Am My Own Biggest Fan

OK, it's confession time. I am a HUGE narcissist. I mean, obviously I think I'm the greatest, better than your boyfriend, etc. But at least that is all true beyond any doubt.

What I'm talking about today is different. I am my biggest fan. If I make a new song, I will listen to it for at least 24 hours on repeat. Often times I listen on my computer, then play it in the bathroom while I take a shower. When I'm in front of the mirror I lip sync and dance to my own music, imagining that I am performing it. Then after my shower I listen to it in the car while I drive.

Is this normal? Or at least healthy?

I don't know where this is going...

On Stuff in a Notebook

I've tried blogging before but I never really stuck to it. I'm not quite sure what I'm trying to accomplish here, or what I'm trying to accomplish in life, even. I don't know if my posts will be personal anecdotes or late night thoughts or responses to current events or movie reviews or rants or a little bit of everything. I don't know if my posts will be interesting or inspiring or even worth reading. But I guess I'll start now and we'll go from here. I had a really great teacher during my junior year of high school. She said that we were all biased, which is fine as long as we are aware of our biases and take them into consideration. Here's a little bit of my bias:

I'm eighteen years old. Until now, I lived my entire life in the Pacific Northwest. I'm extremely blessed and have been given a lot of really cool opportunities. I've been travelling for as long as I can remember- so long that I don't even remember my first flight and I can quote the flight attendant safety instructions. So far, I've been to ten states, and one day I'll say I've been to all fifty. In 2003, I went to a foreign country (Mexico) for the first time. In 2010, after waiting far too long, I visited another. I caught the travel bug, and now I've been to five countries outside of the United States. I'm a Christian, and that's a huge part of who I am. I'm a film enthusiast- I spend a ridiculous amount of time watching movies instead of studying (though I'm in some film classes, so that counts, right?). People told me when I moved to the East Coast I'd get tired of the snow, but honestly I'm just tired of people rejecting my invitations to go outside and play. Every day I strive to be a better person, but some days I fail. I have no idea what I'm doing with my life, and I hope that this blog turns out to be at least somewhat interesting. If not, at least I have something personal to look back at.
