16 til 16

Meet Me

My name is Brooklyn.  I’m not gonna share my location or tell you all where I go to school, cause I’ve sure seen enough stories in the news to know that that might not be the smartest decision. Not that my location really matters, this blog has nothing to do with that. I’m a freshman this year, and my English final is for me to learn anything, to create my own project on something I’ve always wanted to do. Genius Hour, in case any of you have heard of it. I have always wanted to start a blog, and I thought this was the perfect opportunity, and maybe a chance to find a new hobby. But the real point of this is the idea of “16 til 16”. I wanted a project that would get me out of my comfort zone, a project that I don’t learn something really physically, like how to make a quilt, but the main point being that I learn something about myself that will help me to grow as a person. I don’t know for sure that that will be how this project in the end, after all I only have 2 weeks to really get all of this done. Nonetheless, after getting the assignment, my mom was talking about how one of her friends from high school was doing a 30 til 30 kind of bucket list blog- 30 things to complete before she turns 30. I was inspired. I thought that it would be good for me, to get me to be more adventurous. I crave spontaneity, but I have a really hard time taking that tiny little hop of faith to do  a little insignificant thing that might just propel me in the right direction. I’m hoping this will change that, and be a little fun along the way. I don’t really know what I’m going to learn through this project. Maybe it will be about me personally, how to step out of my comfort zone, discovering things I never thought I would like. At the very least though, I’m going to learn how to run a blog! 😉
