It’s been a while, hasn’t it?
I’m not sure how many times exactly I’ve sat down to type something up, only to hold down the backspace button, destroying any evidence of my efforts.
It’s been two weeks since graduation and I have to say I thought I would be enjoying my freedom much more. Instead, it’s been a plethora of tears, applications opened in more tabs than I can count, a neglected blog, an empty wallet and an existential crisis here and there.
To make matters worse, with every article I read, and every broadcast I watch, my confidence takes a hit. There’s so much talent already established and so much more yet to be discovered.
And then there’s me, just trying to keep my head above water, writing for a blog with two readers, my dad being one of them.
But so what? I love to write.
So why can’t I seem to get past two paragraphs of text before giving up on my thoughts and closing my laptop?
