First posts are funny – I never quite know what to put down. Since I’m a nerd, for this blog I’ll start with Hello World – the name of both the first program most people compose and now the name of this post, a composition in its own right.
So Hello World, I’m a daughter, a sister, a friend, a (very amateur) artist, a fan of sunrises and of the smell of spring, and an endlessly curious student of this world. I also happen to have been sick for the past 5 years and will be for the rest of my life. I depend on a surgically placed feeding tube for nutrition, and many medications to lessen constant allergic reactions, nausea, and pain. My life is certainly more challenging than that of the average young adult, but I do not believe that those challenges make it any less beautiful, or valuable, or worth participating in than anyone else’s. We all face ups and downs in life, here’s me being open about mine. I hope that you’ll stick along for the ride.
