Here goes nothing...

So I have been told by a slew of people that I should start a blog. I've always had a lot to say and sometimes 160 characters on Twitter isn't enough...and quite frankly, sometimes, I just don't feel adequate enough for Facebook because I am not engaged, expecting a child, or throwing up Greek signs with my sorority sisters (gag). I am constantly over thinking and over analyzing everything that takes place in my life. I get so consumed in my thoughts and think deeply about how I feel about people and certain situations. I like to think that I have always had a way with words. I do not necessarily tell people what they want to hear, but I like to think I tell them what they need to hear in the best way possible. Everywhere you hear and see people saying that too much thinking is bad for you, and honestly, they are probably right, but how do I stop thinking? How do I turn my brain off to get sleep at night? How do I shut out things that have shaped and scarred me into the person I am today? I can look at one picture, one word, someone's name, listen to a certain song with all the right lyrics and a million memories, thoughts, and feelings will consume my mind.I have never been quite sure of what to do with these thoughts...because, sometimes, while deep in thought, I come up with the best theories and realizations about this crazy thing we call life. I feel like I need to share these thoughts with the world. Maybe my words will help someone who has lost his or her way? Maybe my thoughts will help to inspire someone to do something great? Or maybe...maybe no one will enjoy this at all...who knows.

So as the title of this post implies, here goes nothing: I have officially completed my first blog post...stay tuned.

XO, Chloe
