I am somewhat fickle when it comes to blogging. Thought Breakfast is not my first, second, or third attempt at blogging. It is my fourth. Yes, FOURTH. I realized that each time I created a new blog (and I do intend to eventually post frequently to said blogs…I swear), I’d find that somehow whatever I’d titled it left little room for diversity of post topics. For example: I created a blog based on fashion. I love fashion. I eat, sleep, and breathe fashion. And while I do feel extremely passionate about it, it’s not what makes me, me. I don’t want a blog devotged soley to fashion, because as a writer, I have so many things to say – like it or not – about so many different things. And really, would a post about an amazing homeless man I met on the streets in Los Angeles really fit into a fashion blog (more on him in future posts)? Possibly, but not appropriately. He deserves better. So, I’ve created Thought Breakfast as a gathering place for anything I feel is important enough to voice my opinion on. Living in Los Angeles, (semi) working in a crazy industry that will literally chew up your insides and spit them out like ground beef (and trust me, that’s putting it nicely), sometimes can be extremely frustrating. At times, I just want to know that after a long day of complicated frustrations, I am heard. Isn’t that what we all want at the end of a long day? To not only have our tired feet rubbed by loving hands, but also to have our mind massaged lovingly? I am not pretending to know everything – in fact, there is much that I have yet to learn. And I’m hoping this blog will chronicle my journey towards understanding myself and ultimately human kind (or vice versa?) more deeply. There is a reason I kept the ten journals I started throughout my life – I look back through them now and can see patterns in my behavior and thought process that led to growth (or to a dead end) and reading them is a way of smoothing my hand affectionately over the head of my younger self as if to say: “Don’t worry, my girl. You’re going to wind up just fine.”
Maybe I’ve had such a difficult time trying to define what I’ve wanted my previous attempts at blogs to be because I am not able to b defined. I am many things. So, Thought Breakfast is a place to bring every facet of who I am without fear of not fitting into a specific category.
And who am I?
I am complicated. I am funny (I’d like to think). I am serious. I am completely childish in what I find humorous. I am obsessed with clothing (and tearing it apart to sew it into something I love). I am a deep thinker. I am sad. I am happy. I am…
A work in progress.
Come with me?
