It’s a weird thing to be a recent college graduate. You’ve just spent so many years of your life majoring in a certain subject, but now it’s time for the real world. We’re formulated to go to school, get a job, have a family, and that’s what we know. It’s the same ol’ merry-go-round. However, we forget that we’re living in a time where you can create your own life with a keyboard, an idea, and some guts.

“The great thing about the Internet is, it’s the freest marketplace of ideas that there is.” – Alexis Ohanian

An idea can be as massive as Facebook or as simple as a blog, but a great idea can influence great movements, or bring people together. We are not limited, we are unlimited.

So why did it take so long to start a blog? I was missing the guts. We have unlimited potential to be who we want, but it’s frightening to be limitless. It’s scary to not know what’s next. You can settle and take the smoother course or become who you always wanted to be.
