Blog Post 1

Greetings to all! Whom might I be?

It was long overdue for a new contender to plunge into the depths of this poor abandoned blog, and as a sensible and extremely dedicated member of society I chose to step up and take one for the team.

For those of you who have not had the substantial pleasure of getting to know me from a previous encounter, my name is Shannon Baker, I’m 18 years of age, and I have just graduated from one of the many schools owned by Exceptional Ideas known as Teasledown. I’m not easy to miss, you can spot me from a mile away thanks to my big flock of green hair and interesting choice in fashion.

I’m pretty much the same as every other teenager on the planet (With a few minor differences, of course). My mouth is big, I’ll throw the occasional strop every now and then, and of course, I’ll partake in every verbal activity known to man in hopes of getting what I want.

I do have other interests as well though! (Aside from making the lives of those around me difficult) I love drawing, flourishing in nature, playing video games, and listening to music from all the different genres. I also enjoy creating characters and producing written work to go alongside them. It’s my passion!

From this day going forward, I’ll be documenting my journey and different adventures throughout life ascending from a place at school, to the big outside world. It’s only been a mere few months since my departure from Teasledown and I’ve already been met with a diverse range of challenges which I had to take head on.

Most teenagers cannot wait to burst out through doors of their high school for one last time and never look back, but for me? Even the thoughtwas terrifying! I didn’t know what I was going to do, and as the saying goes, I truly felt like a deer in headlights. I had hoped and prayed that this day would never arrive, and that staying put in the warm comforting environment of Teasledown was a lifelong option… but It was time for me to move on. I hadto go. I need to see the world!

Saying goodbye is never easy, especially when it comes to those who are responsible for so much good in your life. I felt like a baby giving up a dummy for the first time! That blanket of security I once had was vanishing, and holding on was no longer an option.

Before Teasledown I had forgotten what it truly felt like to be happy, and the mere thought of spending any more time on Earth was horrific. I was convinced that nothing could take the pain I felt away, and that my trust in the human race would never be restored. I was minutes away from loosing such a difficult battle, but when all seemed bleak I was pulled from the ring, and at last! I was restored.

And so, with my spotted hanky full to the brim and my cheeks stained from hours of intense sobbing, I set off into the big wide world to start a brand new adventure. The road ahead looked pretty scary, and it still does to this day! But I’m here, and I’m doing it. So much has happened as of recent, and I cannot wait to share it with you all.

Thank you so much for reading. 😊

Until next time!
