Finding Myself OMG: A Bullshit Quest

Well, where do I start? I'm struggling, I suppose, to find out who I am outside of who my parents want me to be, who my friends want me to be, or who my own perfectionist tendencies (totally personified) want me to be. I don't know if this blog will really document my progress in, ahem, coming of age, or if it will just basically be a place for me to vent and blab about nothing. We shall see.

Human interest story, anyone?

So it's been forever and a day since I updated. I don't know where to start! Hence, I've decided, before I get to the meat and potatoes updates on my life and thoughts, to link you to an article I read in the paper this morning that really touched me. I know that sounds sarcastic, but seriously!

NV students keep bus from hitting building; driver struck by fatal heart attack

It's just really inspiring. It's sad that the driver died, but these girls? Amazing. The one who stopped the bus by taking his foot off the accelerator and applying the brakes with her hands? OMG, seriously. She's fifteen. At fifteen (in NY you can't get your permit until your sixteen) I didn't even know where the brakes were. And to be that cool under pressure, that's just awesome.

Hope this story got to your little heart like it did to mine. ;) I'll be back with actual updates on moi, moi, moi later.
