Why I Blog During The Summer

Right now , it is currently 6 days into summer vacation. People are going to the mall, swimming in the pool, and I do enjoy those things, but there is one thing that has never caused me stress, and allows me to express myself is ways I can only do by writing. I am blogging.

Some people blog for their "followers", what they think will interest them. I blog for myself. I did blog during school, and I met all of the requirements, but unlike most, I didn't just blog for the grade, as I said before, I blogged for myself. I blog(ged) so I could be myself, I blogged so I could express myself through poetry, and other forms of writing. I blogged so I could talk about things to no one yet  still feel like I was getting it off my chest. I am aware that nobody reads or looks at my blog, but my blog is a safe place for me. A place unlike any other. My blog is not a burden. It's a gift.

Blogging is what brings me peace, what takes away my stress, what makes me feel like I'm in a place where I am able to write what I feel without being judged or questioned.

Rain

Every year it rains on my birthday. Maybe it's a sign. A sign that I'm not meant to be where I am right then. A sign that I am not at my final destination, just yet. Rain is seen as a sin of darkness to most. The feeling of sadness, and a sign that there is no good to come.

Every year it rains on my birthday. The rain is signalling that my journey is not over yet. That I haven't quite found my way. The path that I'm taking is not right. It's not leading me to a life of happiness, or love. How can rain lead me on a wrong path? How can a measly weather forecast determine the outcome of my entire life? Well, it can't. But every year, it makes me think. Think about what I'm doing wrong, or how I'm not quite where I need to be. Where I could be.

There is no happy sunny ending this year. Because this year;

There's lightning.

Fathers' Day

(This blog is meant for the 19th)

Today is Father's Day. I love this day because it's a day to appreciate more than all other days, how amazing and wonderful my dad is. He has sacrificed so much for me and my sister and I hope he knows how much I appreciate him.

My dad and I have gone through a lot. Moving states, houses, jobs. He is the most supporting father in the entire world, and will go to any length to make me happy. He takes me to all of my sports games, all of my concerts, every art show, every birthday party. He's there. He works harder than any other person I know. He works 10 hours a day and then comes home and makes dinner. He somehow has time to play games and help with homework. He always has time for me, and I will never know how.

I would like to dedicate this short post to my dad, who has been the most inspiring, wonderful person in my life. Who has helped me through every struggle I've had. And has been the most amazing and loving dad I could ever ask for.
