And… Begin!

Hello WordPress!

This post will mark the beginning of an experiment for me.  Today will be spent exploring this place, and figuring out what it is all about. I have a specific job in mind for the future, in a place far from where I am now. Being efficient in WordPress is one of the skills I will need if I ever hope to get there. If my course changes between now and then, I can, at the very least, eliminate “Create a Blog” from my bucket list.

It will be interesting to test out my writing skills as well. Growing up in school, I was always interested in and actually good at writing. Well, so I was told… which may just mean I had good cheerleaders in my life. Either way, because of this instilled confidence, I stuck with writing. I wrote in diaries physically by hand, moved on to an online journal of sorts, joined my high school news paper staff for three years, and so on. Specifically enjoyed editorials. I am eager to see what I can come up with creatively as well as learning what I need to learn.

The plan is to also enroll in some other extracurricular skills classes (Photoshop, Social Media Marketing) … you know, whatever I can afford while still saving, and write about the experiences with those. Along with that, I plan to use this as a brainstorming outlet for sorting out ideas, plans, research, and any thoughts that will help me achieve my ultimate goal. That goal is quite simple in its beginning stages of development: fly somewhere new. When I say fly… I mean to move, live, work, explore, and meet new people in a place I have never been. Louisiana is my home at heart, but spending more than another year and a half coddling myself in such a small corner of the world has recently become a ridiculous thought to me. This will happen by the time I am 25 years old.

Basically, this will turn in to what it turns in to. It could very well just end up being a pile of laundry that never gets hung up.

Relevant tattoo (yes, mine). Got this Fleur De Lis on my wrist in New Olreans last year to keep me from getting home sick when I leave the south.

  1. Definitely better than the drawing.
    (And yeah, you better believe I read it)

  2. I had to revisit this today to see just how far you’ve come, Becca.
    You impressed me on April 18, 2012 and you’ve blown me away on March 20, 2012.
    Well done. You may feel you have miles to go, but you’re on the right track, young lady.

  3. I want to move somewhere just long enough to get an accent. Californians lack an actual accent, or so I have been told. That’s my incentive to move.

    • Accents are definitely intriguing. You would think I have a southern twang going for me, but my parents were both army brats. I have no accent either. Every once and a while I will hit a couple words with a twang, but mostly I do not have a specific accent.

    Becca have you chosen a place to relocate too yet? the seasons are nice in new england?

    • I haven’t decided yet, and I have about a year to go until I will be able to afford the move and get my ducks in a row. Right now, that is the number one place I am looking at to relocate. I am making a trip to Boston in a couple of months to check in out in reality! Right now I only get to enjoy one hot humid season for 75% of the year, so I would LOVE to live up there where I can experience all four seasons ;).

  5. Welcome to WordPress!
    Better late than never, right?

  6. Looking forward to seeing where this goes…
