🧶 + 🧵 + 📚 | opinions my own 🦊
Recently a friend of mine turned to her teenage daughter and asked: “Who are you and what’s your story”. She received a small shrug before the girl looked back down at her phone and finished coordinating a ride to her volleyball tournament. An interesting question to pose to someone who is just learning who they are and beginning to write their story.
I am no longer fifteen and have not been for over a decade. Yet when I ask myself those same questions, who am I and what is my story, they are not easier to answer. I’m a librarian. I am a dog owner. I am a hiker. I am a mother. I am a crafter. I am. I am. I am.
Do any of those things answer the “who am I question”? As for my story, it’s still being written. I’m still seeking new experiences and enjoying the ones I get to repeat. I will use this space to answer those questions, to mull over things I’m thinking about, and to represent myself as myself within this digital space we refer to as the internet.
