Hi World, and welcome to our blog! We are Angela and Serena from Vancouver and we are so glad you’re here! We started this blog because we want to help people, one post at a time. We hope these post will give you ideas to change or improve your situation whether it’s for yourself, at work, at home, in your relationships, or in the community around you.
Ever since I can remember I’ve always liked to watch and observe people. When I was younger, instead of playing with the other kids at big family dinners, I would sit with the grown-ups and listen to their conversations. In university, I majored in psychology where I continued to observe and study people, their motivations, and their actions. In general, I think that people are good. Sometimes if someone is inconsiderate, they may just not know how their actions affect others, sometimes if someone is being cruel, they may just be trying to protect themselves. I hope that my posts will help people start to observe themselves and make changes if they don’t like what they see.
I wanted to write a blog because I wanted to be able to express my feelings, thoughts and opinions better. I have always had trouble expressing my feelings on paper, and over time I have developed a fear of writing. When I write, so many thoughts are running through my mind, like if I sound dumb, is it grammatically correct, what are people going to think of me, and more. Being a student and working at an office job, I know I cannot run away forever. I have reached out to my peers for help by asking them to proofread and it feels great when I get some positive feedback. I think blogging could help me tackle my weaknesses and fears. I want to begin my journey with the world and I hope that my story and each post will inspire, motivate or change an individual’s life even just a little.
