I am about to embark on the most amazing journey of my life. My name is Cara, I am 28 years old and I feel like I am in the process of seeing the world as it is, for the very first time. I’ve been through a lot of things since I graduated high school in 2004. Enrolled my self into college three times, been through massive weight gain and then massive weight loss. I was finally able to grow within my company at my job, working my way up the chain. I am now a month and a half away from receiving my Bachelor’s degree. I can’t be more excited. I think this is an amazing accomplishment for someone who has never done well in school.
All my life I have been pretty much a loner. Even though I am very out spoken now, my high school days were quiet. But there was two things I definitely did throughout high school; I laughed a lot and I wrote a lot. I have THE most distinct laugh in the world, not joking, if you ever meet me in person and hear it I guarantee you will agree. I have a very bubbly personality, very outgoing. In my 20s I gained a lot of friendships, some of them I know are going to last a life time. Total 180 from my high school days right? Well, not entirely. I still keep to myself, I just have a big Rolodex of people that I’ve met a long the way on my trek through life. I am more out going for certain occasions or when I feel like having a random get together with friends for the evening, but every other day of the week I am very quiet. And that is coming from someone who is claiming that she was a loner.
The main reason I was a loner in the first place was because when I was a teenager I realized I was different from the rest of my classmates. Long story short, I’m a lesbian, and I am quite proud. I used to write stories when I was in middle school and high school about how I would want my life to be on a day to day basis. This became the beginning of my writing. I used to keep notebooks hidden in an old briefcase that belonged to my father. I would basically write a journal of my day but I would twist the story to make it sound better to me. I guess you could describe them as teen lesbian fiction, of how I used to have a crush on one of the girls I went to school with but in real life we barely talked. But in my writing it said something completely different. It wasn’t until a few years later, before I entered high school, my mom found these stories. Man, I was in trouble, the end result ended up being that she threw everything in the briefcase away. Even though my stories were gone I was able to keep one journal from her. I still have that one journal that I have kept over the years from seventh grade. This journal is more realistic about my every day life than the stories my mom found. I still refer to it sometimes to see how my writing was back then.
Growing up with my escape of writing at hand I started just living my life. I always had a job, I was never one to go from job to job. I have also been in and out of college a few times, this is going to be my third and last time in college. I am finally going to get my degree. I found out after I had bariatric surgery that it is time to re-invent my self. I needed to change my life, I needed to live it better. I started losing weight, I started to become more social. I made two life changing trips to see best friends of mine (one in Cali and one in Florida). I had the most amazing time on both of those trips. All the while I became enrolled in online school to get my degree. I started writing scripts and learning how to maintain my craft, tried to keep it interesting to my potential viewers.
Now I am starting my very first blog. Like I said in the beginning I am almost clutching my Bachelor’s degree and I think it is time for me and my writing to be shared with the world. I don’t care what anyone has to say about it (good or bad) I am not afraid of being judged for what I am thinking. I think this is the very first step, a giant step, but the first. I will be posting stories, treatments for scripts, and poems on here. I guarantee if you are not satisfied you don’t have to come back. But if I have stuck an interest, check me out. I will be posting once a week so I hope you are looking forward to it, because I definitely am.
