How to Be Ignorant

Hello. My name is Audrey, and I have no idea what I’m doing.

Not just with this whole blog thing, but basically with my entire life. I guess that’s to be expected when you’re 19. I just spent a little bit of time scrolling through blog ideas on Pinterest (“50 Things your Blog NEEDS,” “50 MORE Things your Blog NEEDS,” “50 Things Your Blog ABSOLUTELY CANNOT HAVE”) and decided, screw it. I’m gonna wing this and learn as I go. So I’m sorry if this is a terrible blog post.

Unfortunately, there’s no Pinterest articles about “50 Things your Life Needs to Be” or “50 Things you Absolutely CANNOT have in your life.” That would be more helpful than laundry lists of what a blog needs. Or maybe it wouldn’t. I like figuring things out on my own, preferably if those things land in my own little box of Life. This blog? This is a stretch. Just typing these paragraphs I’m thinking “This is lame already. You’re not going to have enough to write about. You’ll give up after a few weeks.”

Stop it, brain. I’m trying to be productive here.

Anyway, don’t think of this blog as about any one topic. Don’t think of me as the soy-latte, top-knot, chunky-sweater girl with a blog. I’m actually sitting in class writing. Hopefully you’ll get to know me more along the way. Think of this as my own online diary (minus the crushes and middle school drama that is often associated with the word “diary”) – which I guess is what a blog essentially is. Think of this also as what I’m doing when I’m supposed to be doing something more important.

Let’s put it this way: I figured this would be more productive than binge-watching Netflix or scrolling through Instagram. Not that either of those are inherently bad things. But I suppose I’d like to be more intentional with my time.

There you have it. My first blog post. My name is Audrey, and I still have no idea what I’m doing. Catch you later.
