Writing for this blog has been difficult for me. It’s NOT that I don’t know what to write about, it’s that I don’t know what to post.
You see..I write all the time. Writing is very cathartic for me and helps me get my emotions out.
Logically, you may be wondering.. then how does she not have anything to post on here?
In short, I am someone who is very introspective and is always asking questions.
At a very young age, I was always observing and wondering why. However, I was never asking these questions out loud.
Ultimately, there is always a disconnect between what I share with most people and how I really feel.
For example, last Sunday, I went to a cooking class with some of my family.
To be honest, I didn’t say much and probably seemed very disengaged when I was in the class.
However, the second I got in the car, I was very open with my family and shared my feelings about the cooking class.
“ Can you believe Ted is preserving fruits at 3 o’clock on a Sunday afternoon. What a man.”
“ Tom seemed kind of into you, Mommy. It was quite entertaining. I died inside when he said that he had one of those – ie. his wife!”
“ Why did the cooking instructor keep talking about people dying. That scared me.”
Now how does the cooking class relate to this blog post?
Unfortunately, most people do not know the real Sydney.
I hope – ( or at least I like to think) that I have always been very mature and compassionate for my age.
However, I don’t think I present myself that way.
So maybe… just maybe, if I am really vulnerable and honest, I can show “the real Sydney” without the filter.
Therefore, I decided to share some feelings about a documentary I watched the other day.
“Yesterday, I watched Demi Lovato’s documentary called Simply Complicated. I definitely enjoyed the film, and found myself crying and laughing throughout the documentary. My attention was immediately captured during the opening interview of the documentary.
Demi confessed that she was anxious; the last time she gave an extended interview for her documentary, “Stay Strong”, she was on cocaine.
The documentary showcased an honest and extremely authentic Demi. I definitely could relate to her story; especially because she is only one year older than me. One of the things that resonated with me the most was when Demi stated that “Secrets make you sick!”
On another note, I love the title, Simply Complicated. Isn’t that what life is?
I could elaborate, but it’s time to stop procrastinating and study for this test!
