My name is Sarah Hoekstra.
Simple as that, you know my identifier, you can find me everywhere, I exist, I have a life, a face, and a story. Perhaps that’s what drew you to this blog, or maybe you already knew me and just want to know more.
That’s perfectly fine. Scratch that, that’s wonderful!
I’m a student at Central Michigan University and am studying to be a Middle School Teacher in Integrated Sciences, with a minor in Creative Writing. Both are my passions, so I’m loving school at the moment.
Now, the reason that I came up with this blog is mostly for myself, it’s a way to express myself through writing, pictures, stories, anything that comes to mind. I will obviously be excited if anyone finds it and wants to know more, or feels that my experiences and candor will help them in any way. I’ve lived a pretty recluse, normal teenage life so far, but there have been events and days where I wondered about many things. Those topics and happenings will surely find themselves into my blogging.
Random stuff about me:
- I’m very unsure of my writing due to having some serious writer’s block for the past few years. Hence the blog will help me get those juices flowing
- I’m a night person, mostly because I’m a procrastinator so I enjoy my days and do homework at night.
- My best friend is my roommate… She’s a black cat named Nyx.
- I’ve got some nasty PTSD from a car crash so I’ve got insomnia and Nyx is my sleeping pill.
- I have trouble writing from the male perspective and normally the good male characters I have are made with the help of my older brother
- Writing about myself is hard and will be kind of sporadic because I only do it when I need to get something off my chest.
- I love critiques and pointers!
- Poetry is not my best skill but it’s fun once and awhile.
- I’m a vegan
- I’ve got ten glorious tattoos(HOW AM I NOT BANKRUPT?)
- My favorite color is Lavender
- My favorite food is Brussels sprouts
- I love photography, but I left my good camera at home
So, welcome, and I hope you don’t find my mind’s inner workings too boring!
