My motto in life is simple - surround yourself with things you love, and you'll never have to search very far for happiness. I strive to do this daily with people, books, photography - anything that will put a smile on my face! I'm quiet, but will open up to you if you've got a moment to spare. I don't always say what's on my mind - introvert, here - and I tend to love unconditionally. I hope all of this is okay, because I wouldn't know how to change me!
I'm a 25-year-old avid reader of books, who also works full-time at a job having nothing to do with books. I also dabble in photography and a bit of free-writing. That's kind of how this started - needing an outlet for all of these ideas roaming around in my head. People sometimes ask me why I'm so quiet. Sometimes the answer is: I just don't have anything to say. Other times, the answer is: I have so much to say, but no place to put everything!
One day, I thought to myself, "I should start a blog." I wanted to share my opinions, write out my heart in a safe environment, where people can hopefully relate to me or find themselves chuckling at something I've written, just when they needed it. A place where people can silently judge me from the comfort of their home, or loudly criticize me in the comments section (it's cool, by the way, if you do either. I'll still love you!). My best friend in the whole world has been with me on this from the beginning - encouraging me, pushing me, even helping with the title "Of Pics and Pen" and giving me that final kick in the pants to get started. Thanks, Mel. I couldn't have done any of this without you.
So here we go! Keep your arms and legs inside the blog at all times and do not unbuckle your seat belt until the ride has come to a complete stop. Please enjoy "Of Pics and Pen"!
