The internet. It’s a strange thing.
It can be a very dark place; sometimes you have to be very careful where you click. It’s a place where you can express yourself and talk to people (without actually talking to them).
And it can be a place where you can be discovered and be popular. Felicia Day became famous that way. That’s how Dylan O’Brien got started, by starring in homemade YouTube videos. That’s how Zoella and the Nostalgia Critic started. What’s happened to these people is fantastic and it’s lovely that they’re so successful.
But I keep forgetting that the only place ‘success’ comes before ‘work’ is in the dictionary. I’ve been neglecting my writing lately and that needs to stop.
I’m in my mid-twenties and lately, I’ve been feeling quite restless and more than a little frustrated. A lot of that’s to do with my current career path and a sudden urge to do something. Life was meant for living and it doesn’t end just because you reach a certain milestone.
Watch this space, people.
