My basic life summary: I am turning 18 soon, I am that girl you will see in class that is always joking around in class and makes everyone laugh. It’s my last year of school (Yup, a senior) and then planning to study dentistry. I have had this blog for 3 years now and it basically became my diary in a way. And the name of the blog “The Beat” was chosen because I always felt that poetry (or you could say art in general) always had a soul of itself. I sometimes go through my old writings and just by looking at the headings I get to embrace my past and re-live it. For me poetry was a way of escaping from life, I would write and through those simple words I felt so much more heard, supported and understood. Words that made up the poems I wrote were my best friends, the ones that were always there to understand it all and to just give that shoulder to lean on.
I will share my poems with you and sometimes other random thoughts. But I genuinely believe that life can always be enjoyed by just changing your perspective of it. As they say, sometimes you don’t need to change your location in the world, but simply the eyes that you look through into the world.
As a person I am horribly hyper and energetic. That is one of my other believes that you should always radiate positive energy. After all, who doesn’t like the sunlight in summer?
