About Me – FINALLY!

I sit here, wondering what to write about:
Work?.........Really boring (really, you have no idea).
Friends?......I just did that.
My Dad?......I feel like I do that too much already.

Maybe for once I’ll just write about me.

I’m 16 years old and a junior in High School. I play the flute in band at my school, I’m in color guard (we perform at football games in the fall and basketball games in the winter), I’m on the swim team, I’m on the tennis team, I’m very active in my church (I’m on the board of deacons, I sing the in adult choir, and I am active in the youth program in my church), and I love hanging with my friends.

In the past year, I’ve realized that things (people included) should not be taken for granted. I’ve learned that, in an instant, the life you once knew can be taken away from you, never to return.

I guess the next thing to talk about is this. I’m suffering from a minor-ish case of depression. I’m working it out, I wear my mask pretty well, but I’m still not the same person I was a year ago – before my dad died.

Well, that’s all I have time for right now. I will post more about myself if you want in a later post, but I’m telling you, my life is pretty dull! :)


  1. Dull or not (I opt for not), I still find your life (and your ability to press on) quite fasciniating. And for the record, you're not the only one coping with depression. I, too, wear a mask (yet it's been so long, I have difficulty distinguishing the real from the unreal). But regardless, you never have to "work it out" alone. Your friends are right behind you every step of the way. :)
