Nice to meet you.

        So, I figured I should begin my blog by introducing myself. My name is Kendra and I am seventeen years old. I know, I don't have too many years under my belt but I am trying to take it day by day.
       I am approaching my senior year of high school, and cannot wait to be graduated. I know, I know, it is bad to wish your life away but I am very ready to move on to college. Quick facts about me: I am a swimmer, I play the viola, and I love to read and write. My life at home is quite hectic due to the three big dogs we have and four cats to go along with them. We have a huge Saint Bernard who is a giant teddy bear. But he also loves to bark, and man, can he bark. My family also has two Akitas, who are a little over a year old, so they are full of energy. We actually just a kitten as well, and he is a little Spitfire. Our other three cats have not taken a liking to him yet, but we are getting there. I live with my mom and dad but I have an older brother who lives in Virginia. He's all grown up and living on his own. Well, I don't want to bore you with my whole life story. Moving on!
       I have always been an extremely shy person; I do not open up to people quickly and often times find it difficult talking to people I just meet. Once I do become close to someone, however, I am completely open and, yes, a bit crazy. So, I wanted to start this blog to get over my shyness and strive to fulfill my dreams. I am in love with reading, and naturally, writing so I figured blogging would be the perfect fit. I have absolutely no idea what I want to do with my life, so I am hoping blogging will help me lay out my life and find my path. Cheesy, yes, but effect I am hoping it will be. Just thought I would throw in some Yoda talk to spice it up.
       I want to go out and truly live my life. I figure if I can learn more about myself and the things that I love, I will be able to find my way. So, voilĂ , this blog was born. I will be blogging about my life, my interests, things that I do, when I have a great day or maybe even when I have a horrible day. Life is about treasuring the wonderful moments, but also realizing they aren't all fabulous. I try to keep this in mind when I'm having a bad day, because I can realize that tomorrow could be the best day of my life. My blog will be about it all, so I hope you enjoy! Thanks for reading!
       Oh! Also a quick note on the name. When I was a baby, my dad gave me the nickname "Stinkerbug." I have no clue why, he said it just fit, so it has stuck ever since. It is something dear to me, so I thought it was appropriate to name my blog "It's a Bug's Life." Bye for now! (:

  2. Hi Kendra! I also recently started my blog and am very shy as well! If it consoles you at all, I'm going into my second year in university and have no clue what I want for the rest of my life. I look forward to you posting some more :)

  3. You sounds like a wonderful person :) Welcome to the blogging world. Really enjoy the last year of high school- I never wanted to graduate from high school because in my last two years, I had so much fun. And honestly, after I graduated, I haven't been as happy since. I'm still working on it, but the huge change of college and just LIFE really affected me and I'm still trying to pick myself up. But as long as you have people around you who will support and care about you no matter what, everything is gonna be just fine! :)

    Also, that's so cool you have a St. Bernard dog- they're so cute!! x
