With the words of the lovely Mr. Kurt Vonnegut in mind, I will proceed with my first experience blogging. I hope this blog will be a free space for me to express myself without judgment (from myself or readers), which is why I am choosing to do it anonymously. I will try not to worry about it being good, or pretty, or profound, or terribly well-written, rather simply an outlet for art to freely exist in open space.
Introductions ought to come next. My name is (for the purposes of this blog) Velvet. My real name is not Velvet. My real name is short, and generic, and practical. But blogging seems to be none of those things. Blogging is verbose and entertaining and artful. And insomuch that I am trying to think of my life as more of an art and less of a documentary, I shall think of my blogging-self as Velvet, for the material velvet’s impractical yet beautiful characteristics.
I am graduating with an undergraduate degree in psychology this week. I will be undergoing a Master’s program in clinical psychology come fall. I have two siblings, both female. I am an Aunt to a lovely little niece. I have two parents, two best friends, and one boyfriend. I try to run fairly often. I like to bake. I like all sorts of music. I have roughly a billion other interests and characteristics which I am sure will come out in time.
I plan on blogging a good bit from now on, and I hope my thoughts and feelings provide some entertainment for you.
