Twenty one years old. I have no idea what I'm doing.
For now I reside in Oregon during the school months and Alaska during the holidays. The Pacific Northwest and a boy named Matt hold my heart, and my obsession for adventure and beauty leads me forever onward. I'm studying photography and creative writing and desire to share how I see the world with everyone who will listen.
The title for this blog came about from my own personality. In a sense, "Introvert's Introduction" is an oxymoron, because introverts tend to wait for others to do the introducing. I am very much an introvert. But the other side of me is the "introduction" side. Because of my many years of not being included or not feeling cared about, I have a desire to make people feel welcome.
I believe it's my longing for people to see who I am that is the driving force behind "introduction." I would say that only four people at the most could really pinpoint the exactness of who I am. That's a small number compared to the entire world. And I don't believe that's how it should be. We as human beings are so intricate and diverse that it should be a crime for so few people to know about what makes us us. We learn from change and from differences around us, and what better way to learn than from other people? And I know it's impossible to go through the struggles of life without a friend right beside me, who knows me, who is helping me along--a person that I can learn from and they learn from me. So that is the meaning behind this blog. I decided to make this blog mostly to document the last half of my senior year in high school and my adventure into college, but I hope through my own life you can better your own. It's a crazy world out there and no one can get through it alone, and I don't want anyone to feel like that's what they have to do. So without further delay, I'm Lauren, from Introvert's Introduction.
