My First Blog...cliche? I know!!

Well, its like 1:30 in the pretty damn tired because i got a good 2 hours of sleep last night...but instead of taking my butt to writing my first blog! YAY!!

I've contemplated blogging for a minute now...but i just came around to puttin my fingers to these keys and making it happen. I always thought this blogging phenomenon was pretty interesting, yet, I was nervous about getting too personal. So enjoy what I share and dont be greedy...

My name is Sharieka and I'm 22 years old. I was born in Queens, NY, raised in Ft. Lauderdale, FL, and i currently reside in Atlanta, GA. I hail from a Jamaican backgroung, forground, and all around ground...JA ALL DAY!!!
I've always liked myself but now at 22, I'm trying to expand my horizons. I'm learning to be more open to new things and I am persuing things that I've always wanted to do but never got around to. I have always been interested in poetry...yet I was led to believe that it was something you had to be born with. I felt like it was something you either have a skill for or you dont. I learned that anyone can do it with the right mindset and the right words. I'm enjoying this new found skill. It helps me to relieve stress in a positive way. Hopefully this blogsite will do the same...

  1. hey, you stole my background!

    i've never believed that people were just born to be poets. What makes poetry poetry is the fact that anyone can do it....some are just better than others. The more you write, the better you become.

    now we can definitely keep in touch with each other through our blogs.
