"We write to taste life twice, in the moment and in retrospect."

― Anaïs Nin

I like writing, sometimes. I may not be the best writer but I think I do okay. I have put off writing my first article for long enough. I wanted to have something inspirational or profound to write but I've got nothing.

Dear reader, sorry to disappoint you.

I know I don't need to have an introductory article because I have a bio but I'd still like to talk a little about myself. After all, I have a blog titled "This Is Me".

I was really shocked and flattered when I was first contacted by the My Trending Stories team. I felt like Carrie Bradshaw. If I were her then I'd have something inspirational or profound to say but I'm not her. I'm a college sophomore who's recently gotten out of her first relationship and is still reeling from it. I'm also a child sexual abuse survivor and I really don't want to get into that on my first article. Needless to say, I have a lot of baggage. My blog helps me unload in a way. I prefer it to counseling. My little baggage claim led me here, being a writer for My Trending Stories.

Like I said, I have nothing inspirational or profound to write. I could rant about how my first relationship ended twice but I'll save that for another time.
