Let's cut to the chase, no long introductions...

#1 I want to be heard!

I'm getting sick of telling stories (to my 3-dimensional friends) over and over and feel like nobody's even listening. I mean, how many times do I have to say I DON'T WANT KETCHUP ON MY FOOD?! I'm getting sick of being asked the same question a thousand times as well. I hate it when people misinterpret what I'm doing and what's happening to me, my mind and my body. I write personal blog posts to clear up the misinterpretations of my shenanigans.

#2 I have (enough) time to do it! 

I am single and I'm proud of it. I am not a princess; I do household chores like a normal person. I cook, I do the dishes, I (obsessively) organize my stuff, I clean the floor, I scrub the toilet, I drop off my clothes to the laundry shop and pick them up, I go grocery shopping, I get my own cup of coffee and I personally queue to pay some bills every month. I don't let people do stuff for me unless they volunteer to do so. On top of that, I still find that shining moment to blog about my random thoughts and epic shits that I've been through.

#3 I have a million thoughts... 

...and I can't find one person who can take everything in, so, I have to put it somewhere. I think a shrink would give up on me if he/she would try to even hear about what's going on inside my head. No matter how organized I am, I sometimes run out of categories and labels where I can put one ridiculous thought.

#4 I'm an introvert!

No, I'm not shy. I just prefer to curl up in bed with my laptop on Friday nights when most people are out there drinking and partying like there's no tomorrow. I also prefer comfortable silences with people who mind their own businesses (e.g people in coffee shops, libraries, museums, temples). I don't hate people, I'm just very selective with whom I would talk to. If you are a blogger, you will definitely find like-minded people and you can talk without using your mouth. Reading their blog is a great way to learn about them and their passion without too much suffocation.

#5 I feel motivated and productive every time I am blogging! 

Seriously! Imagine dragging yourself out of bed to take a shower and eat and then rush off to work/school/other stuff you need to attend to on a Monday morning. BLOGGING IS NOTHING LIKE THAT. I can write (or at least make a draft in my head) whenever I want. I'm usually up at 2 AM anyway, so, might as well do something out of it! And that awesome feeling of hitting Publish?...nothing beats that! (Ooops! I think I'm wrong, maybe Reads or Views or Followers might be better?)

#6 It is good for my self-esteem! 

It's nice to recall all the good and bad things that happened to you and realize that even after all those lousy and crappy moments, you're still right there - standing tall and strong!

#7 I can be myself when I'm blogging!

I can fully express my opinion about things. People can judge me all they want and I won't have to give a crap. They can hate me to the moon and back but I will say what I want to say in MY blog. I don't have to sugar-coat everything just to please people who don't even know a thing about me. 

#8 I love sharing and I like inspiring others!

I feel lucky, entertained, motivated and inspired whenever I read about someone who has done awesome things that at first seemed impossible. It restores my faith in humanity. It makes me believe in the impossible. They are a living proof that 'whatever your mind can conceive, your body can really achieve'. I want to do the same thing for others; I want them to have the same good feelings that I feel when people share their stories. I want them to feel that they are not alone in their struggles and there is a way to get out of whatever hellhole they are in. I want to remind them that the simple and mundane things in life are usually the most memorable ones.
