Officially 1💗

Hello all!

*slams my textbook shut and types excitedly*

Oh, I know I have been MIA for the last few days and sadly this will continue as I have exams coming up pretty soon.

However, I ABSOLUTELY had to come online and write today. It is a very special day for me, after all. Today marks one whole year since I started blogging and troubling y’all with my messy, strong-headed, borderline annoying thoughts.

It feels so cliche to say this but I really can’t believe it has been a year since my first blog. I still remember the rush I felt when I clicked the publish button. Did I expect my first piece to blow up and get so much love? Absolutely not. I kind of wanted to be anonymous but ig not. 

Girlwithink has turned one year old and I cannot thank the readers and supporters enough. This page is my home and I would stay here forever if I could. Some lovely souls told me that I have always been GirlwithInk but I know that it isn’t true. I turned into this wonderfully mine persona when each and every one of you came into my life. 

In this one year, I learnt a lot about myself and about writing. This year has gifted me with assurance, more than anything. Assurance that writing is embedded in my soul and that I will never part from it, no matter what. Assurance that some souls out there don’t mind listening to my ramblings and opinions. Assurance that I can fearlessly be myself and it won’t change what people think about me irl.

I have definitely not achieved any major milestones. I should be sad about that but someone today told me that I was the reason he published his first poem and that he was proud of me, I guess that is enough motivation for me. I wish to last another year or another lifetime, who knows. 

So, until I am back here, with another blog… let me just say a huge thank you and send a lot of warm hugs. You guys mean a lot more to me than you shall ever know.
