Hello, wherever you may be in the world.

Ready for a shock to the system, I'm a sixteen year old girl who has never had an instagram account, snapchat, facebook, none of it. Whoa, wow, really? Why not? Do it! You should just get it!

Yeah, well, it's not as easy as it sounds.
I've been loitering about on media sites such as WHI and wattpad because they're easier. Nothing personal about them really.

That's why I don't have any social media accounts to my name: I'm shit scared of what people might say and think about me.

It's the stupidest thing ever, the most irrational fear in the entire universe and I'm sick of it because it really feels like I'm missing out, and I have to pretend not to care because as far as my friends and family know; the reason I don't participate is because I can't be bothered and I'm too stubborn to go changing my mind now.

My name's Brooke, which it probably says somewhere on the screen, I dunno, maybe not. Anyway, I'm here to gain some confidence in myself and hopefully inspire others to pursue the same path because I know how hard it is doubting yourself all the time.

I'm really motivated this year. 2018. I'm sixteen years old now. Mature enough to be independent and take responsibility for myself. Reward myself with happiness and joy rather than scorn every thought or idea I have. I'm allowed to have interests, hobbies, opinions that others don't have. I don't need to feel bad about that.

I'm going to get a job. Pay off my car. Get the best grades in school I possibly can, improve my relationships within my family and circle of friends and hopefully expand it out to the opposite gender. Going to an all girls school makes things difficult, especially when you don't have social media, but I'm going to do my best because I want to experience all that.

I'm going to be treating WHI as a blog of sorts. I'll write things when I am inspired and who knows what kind of stuff I'll be blurting out. We'll just have to see how this goes. Stick around, maybe it'll get good.

xxx Brooke.
