This blog has turned into an illuminating tool of self-reflection. I recently re-read several of my blog posts and could not help but become ashamed. I realized that I’m a selfish person, and I have biases against certain people: uneducated people and wealthy people, in particular. I’d like to apologize for those posts, although I will not delete them. I think deleting them would be an attempt at shameful refusal to acknowledge my weaknesses. I’ve scolded myself, and I think I’ve matured a little, especially since spending several months in a college setting were I’ve been forced to confront my prejudices and beliefs.
I’m thinking about starting another blog, one of which that I’m not as ashamed. That’s where I’ll direct my parents, professors, and employers. I’ll write about politics and travel, or something of the sort. This tumblog will remain, however, a place for me to grow, learn, reflect (and, of course, use vulgar language. Kidding! kind of). I think my peers can relate to this one because of its evolution from arrogant high school senior to a college kid whose ideals have been entirely deconstructed, and perhaps even to scared young adult juggling the uncertain world of unemployment and beyond.
