The Optimistic Millenial

What an original title! Or maybe not. The truth is that a LOT of Millennials are optimistic…spoiler alert, I’m not the only one. We all graduate from college with this ridiculous optimistic hope that we are going to save the world.  A few appealing world-saving methods are organic farming, recycling, buying local, teaching impoverished countries our Western ways, and  by trying to make literally everything fun and supes adorbs!

This optimism is a good thing, I think. But, sometimes it means that we get a little extra disappointed when we find our overwatered pea plants have died, or that our organic, hand-fed, free range chickens have been eaten by coyotes.

We try and we mean well but we don’t always succeed.

This blog is going to be a chronicle of successes and failures of my stupid, wonderful, optimistic, millennial ideas. The world isn’t all puppies and rainbows (despite the massive amount of cute kitten videos you see on Facebook) but knowing that truth hasn’t stoped me from trying to make a difference.

Also, to be honest this blog is going to be a writing exercise/learning experience for me because I’m thinking about writing a book (insert cat surprised emoji), you know, because we need more books. This book is my latest idea and probably my craziest idea yet, and I feel like I need to get some good practice in before I embark on that “adventure”. Now, don’t even think about asking me what the book is going to be about because I’m not ready to tell you. Thats right, all two of you who read this blog are going have to wait.

The reason why writing a book is my craziest idea yet is because I am so not a writer. To give you a better picture…I got a Bachelors of Art in Art…do you see what I mean? My mind doesn't do words very well...its wired more for colors and shapes. That being said, I’m probably going to make a bunch of grammar mistakes and there will also probably be times when you have no idea what I’m trying to say. Feel free to give me some constructive criticism but please let me down gently. Remember what I said about Millennials being extra disappointed when they fail? Yes, OK, cool, enough of that.

I’m going to go do some stuff and I’ll be back with some stories.
