Some of you are probably wondering why I decided to start a blog. Well as a freshman in college, I want to start a new hobby. In high school my established hobby was being a part of theatre. Yes you read that right. I love to sing (loudly), dance and act. I was constantly busy with rehearsal and my whole life revolved around putting on a show. However my first semester as a college student I spent all my time doing school work, going on mini-vactaions, babysitting and tutoring young kids. As much as I enjoy all of those things, I do not consider them "hobbies". By the way, going on mini-vacations is not considered a hobby either, because it is clearly just a bonus!
I started to evaluate what I really enjoy doing. I came to the conclusion that I wanted to find a way to express myself. Over the past year I have developed a love for writing. I even considered changing my major to English (crazy huh). If I would have told my 15-year-old self that I would be an English major, it would give 15-year-old Shelby a good laugh. Instead of changing my major I am instead going to satisfy that desire to write, by starting a blog.
If you know me you know that I have a crazy way of thinking. Sometimes I try to explain something but I end up talking in circles. Writing for me is easier because I have time to strategize what I want to say. My crazy stories and conversation style tends to make people wonder what's really going on in my head. So as a reader you get a sneak peak of my life through The Shelby Lens.
