Guys, this is my 100th blog post. I could give a long speech about how this wouldn’t be possible without you guys, but let’s face it: I could write an entire blog that no one read and I would have the same words. However, I can’t tell you how much it means to me that there are people that read posts from the Life in the Lost and Found Bin. If you happened to catch my earlier blog posts, you know that this didn’t start as a Lost and Found Bin. In fact, my earliest blog was titled, “Write Away.” It then turned into “A Series of Fortunate Accidents,” because that was what my life felt like. As I evolved, so did my blog. About a year ago, I decided that it was time for a change, because my perspective was different. And so the “Life in the Lost and Found Bin” was born.
About a month ago I became set on starting a new blog—I’m not abandoning this one, but I needed something more. I spent a lot of time dreaming up titles and what I could write about. After copious hours scrolling through Pinterest, it hit me. This blog is mostly about life and figuring out what you want. So, I wanted to write about another topic that is important to me: loving your life and believing that you are enough. This blog is called “RechargedBeauty”. I wasn’t quite ready to share it when I first started, because I wanted to add more to it and build it up first. But I wanted to take this opportunity to say that while I may still be in the Lost and Found Bin, I am growing.
This is my 100th blog post, and there is something special about that. I have come a long way from the desktop in a high school computer lab that this blog post started from. I want to give a big thanks to my AP Comp teacher, because I truly may have never started a blog without that class. A lot of my classmates cringed every time someone brought up that class the next year—they briefly relived failing reading quizzes and their less than satisfactory grades on essays—but not me. That class helped me grow so much as a writer, and it gave me the confidence to keep going.
While most of my classmates ditched their blogs the second that the last bell rang, I am 100 post in.
So thanks, for reading, for believing in me, and for making me feel like it was ok to be a writer.
A special day in the Life of the Lost and Found Bin.
