About Samara

Standard

“Why write a blog?” I ask myself this one question over and over again. “You have a journal that you promise to keep up every year and you always stop once January ends”. The answer to the question is simple really – the impact. I have thoughts that I would want to share not just with an inanimate object or a bunch of friends. There are issues that I believe need a more widespread response.

Now, coming back to me (I always love coming back to me!) – I am a woman in my 20’s and like many women in their 20’s, I am clueless about most of the things in life. This is further complicated by the fact that I want so much out of life. The pursuit of happiness is something that has driven me to the brink of craziness. Did I mention that I am an Electrical Engineer with a Masters Degree? (I don’t care much for it. I’d have rather been a Computer Science Engineer)

So you might have already guessed – I am slightly narcissistic (but who isn’t?). I have this constant tendency of wanting more – this drive has led me to better places no doubt, but has always left me feeling pretty dissatisfied with whatever I have. DO NOT think for a moment that I am a dark brooding person – people who know me/have met me will agree that I am always the belle of the ball (aannndd the narcism kicks in).

I want this blog to be more of a recording, if you will, of my quest in discovering more about myself and learning to be happy with what I have (that does NOT mean I am settling). I don’t want to know my limitations, I want to stretch them and go beyond. I have strong opinions about a lot of issues that might not necessarily line up with the thoughts of the masses – I want to voice those here. I don’t want to go on a philosophical rant (I am not qualified enough for it) but I do want to discuss issues that might not have one answer. And as a reader, I want you to comment away! Let me know what you think. Constructive criticism is always appreciated. This is the first time I have blogged EVER and I hope this turns out to be a successful venture.
