Hey there, my name is Yetti and I’m the 20-something-yr-old ‘she’ of andsoshewrites.com that’s trying extremely hard to not suck at life. I’m a college graduate, a slave to Corporate America and a typical indecisive girly girl that has a sharp tongue with a strange sense of humor. I am a lover of writing, shopping, technology, and literature but I dabble in much much more. I aim to do my best and challenge myself to be a better me every day but sometimes fail to enjoy living in the moment. I am obsessive, creative, impatient, caring, and a hopeless romantic but most of all I am me, Yetti, and that is something I am learning to love with each and every day that passes.
Nice to meet you
What is ASSW.Com
Well, it started it off in 2011 as a little old blog I used to monitor my weight loss with but now? It’s my thoughts dumping ground, my creative space, my podium for outrageous outbursts and the place I go to reason with myself and sometimes others. This little old blog is where I chronicle important events and lessons learned, expose my flaws in hopes of fixing them and capture my achievements because sometimes I forget that there are parts of me that are pretty awesome. You see, some day down the road (and when I say someday, I mean next week, Tuesday at 3:24pm to be exact) when I have a typical Yetti-Meltdown, where I exclaim “My life is over and I haven’t accomplished anything!”, I can look back at this little old blog and remind myself that life hasn’t been too bad to me and I have the potential to be phenomenal.
But it isn’t completely about me anymore.
There is a gorgeous little girl that lives in a loving home where the weather is beyond unpredictable. She’s full of smiles, everything pink, fuzzy, and pleasant and she honestly has a heart of gold. She’s shy yet friendly, soft-spoken yet opinionated and has the ability to make one feel at ease with just her infectious giggle. She’s the strongest little girl I know with the attitude of someone I am far too familiar with. She’s my baby sister and even with 15 years separating our ages, she is indeed my hero.
When she gets older I want her to know that I’ve experienced what she’s feeling too, maybe even a little more. I want her to know that whatever she is going through is normal and that she isn’t alone. With this blog she’ll read about and learn from my mistakes, my pain, my missed opportunities and make different and hopefully better choices. But most importantly if she does make the same mistakes that I have, I want her know she’ll survive.
This is where I learn to be a better example. Not just for her, but for any other 20-something-yr old trying really hard to not suck at life.
