hello blogosphere my name is colleen

So I've just decided I want a blog, partially because I don't feel like doing the copious amount of school work that I have waiting for me, and partially because I can be self centered and like talking about my life and am mildly fascinated with the idea of strangers knowing intimate details about my life.

So I guess to begin, a little bit about me; I'm Colleen, I live in a little middle of nowhere town in CT that is extremely boring, but is populated with some really amazing people, so for now I don't mind (of course there are also plenty of people I find less amazing, but that's just life). I'd like to think I see things differently than most people. I have some unorthodox ideas, some of which I can't even make sense of myself, but one of my goals in life is to figure them out before I die.

Another goal of mine is to become a social worker, I'm currently waiting to hear from the colleges I applied to so I can decide where I want to learn to do that. I try to see the beauty in other people. I generally succeed since I think we all come from the same abstract but wonderful thing/person/being most people call God. In case you couldn't tell, my thoughts on religion are one of those unorthodox ideas that I'll probably go into more depth about in a later blog but for now, suffice to say my spirituality is a big part of who I am, and that may seem contradictory since I'm very liberal but I promise it's not.

I would not survive without art. I like to read write listen to music play music and cover my walls in pretty pictures. going back to the whole seeing the beauty in people, I like to try to figure out the world by exploring self-expression, my own and others'. I tend to favour poetry and drawing for my own purposes, but I would love to get a little more variety in there at some point. I don't think anybody is better at turning human beauty into musical beauty than regina spektor. I adore her and I think you should too, whoever you are. There's probably something I've forgotten to mention, but my dad's yelling at me to clean up the house so I have to go.

Until the next time
