Get to Know Me

Happy Father’s Day, everyone! I hope that you all have a great day hanging out with your dads. They deserve the day off. ๐Ÿ™‚ I just realized that in my three years of blogging, I’ve never really told you all too much about me and my personal life, my likes and dislikes, and some of my favorites. Well, I guess that’s kind of what this blog is dedicated to, but still. Here’s some facts about me and now you get to know me!

I’m left-handed despite both of my parents being right-handed.

Three Years Later, Thank You All So Much!

This is crazy. I can’t believe I’ve actually kept this up for three years now. Well actually on Wednesday it’ll be three years, but it’s fine. I’ll celebrate today. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I’d just like to give a big hug and thanks to everyone that’s read my blog. Whether you’re just now reading this one or you’ve been around for a while, thank you. I’ve been able to share my opinions and my writing with you for the past three years and I’ve loved every minute of it. I’ve written about everything from my favorite soup recipe to recently my junior prom. I’ve posted videos of my sister and I making Dubsmashes and I’ve shared a variety of quotes and poems that make me happy. I hope all of this has also made you happy or given you something to think about or some information you maybe didn’t know.

Without my dad giving me this website, I might not have become the writer I am today. Thanks Dad! ๐Ÿ™‚ I might not have had the confidence to write about some of the things I have on this blog and in school. I might not have become more open with my feelings and thoughts. Thanks to all you readers too for dealing with my feelings, thoughts, obsessions, and ideas.

As of right now, I’m above 5,000 views on this blog which is above anything I ever imagined and this will be the 155th blog post. That’s a lot of writing! Some weeks, it’s been difficult to come up with actual ideas and so I’ve had to dig deep and sometimes they turn out really good and sometimes you get something really random like a post about fruit or polar bears. Sometimes I’m really passionate about something and you get multiple posts on that topic like with all of the posts about JFK and tennis, especially when dealing with sportsmanship.

I hope this blog is something I keep up for years to come. It’s been fun to write and create posts for the past three years. It’s been fun knowing that people are out there reading my writing and hopefully enjoying it. Once again, thank you for allowing me to share my life and loves with you. Here’s to many more years of blog posts. Thanks again!

Love, Ana

I Am a Baby Bird: A Personal Metaphor Poem

I haven’t posted a poem in a while and I feel like is about time for one of those. I was feeling really creative late one night and this poem was the product of that! I thought the idea of it was pretty cool and kind of deep and I like how it turned out. I hope you feel the same! Enjoy.

I am a baby bird,

so curious about the world.

Iโ€™m eager to learn all that I can

and become strong and independent.

I see so much, I feel so much,

I live all I can in the present.

Close to my family, and close to my friends,

I never feel alone.

I know what I need to do well in my life,

from my course I will never be blown.

I want to do the best I can

and fly all over the world.

Soon to spread my wings and fly,

I am a baby bird.

WordPress has been a wonderful website to work with and put my blog onto. It has been super smooth and whenever there were issues, the people working for WordPress were extremely helpful and solved the problems quickly and also answered questions when needed. If you are looking to start a website and a blog, I highly suggest using WordPress to run it.

It's a Blogiversary!
