Hello, welcome to my sliver of the internet. You can call me Penny.

A little about me…

I’m a millennial (born between 1981 and 1996) and wish to remain partially anonymous. While I do my fair share of watching YouTube and TikTok, I just can’t bring myself to make my own videos. I’ve always disliked being recorded since I was a child, and I have yet to grow out of that. Fortunately, I do enjoy reading and writing quite a bit.

The reason I mentioned I’m a millennial is because I feel I might relate to those readers more. You ever see those videos on TikTok where they’re poking fun at the differences of each generation, and then if you’re like me, you’re a little shocked to find out that others relate so well? I’ve even had this conversation a few times; “Where are all the other people just like us?” … “At home wondering the same thing.”.

It’s true though isn’t it? If you are a millennial and can relate to the above, as well as the feeling of being lost, maybe a little alone, and still not knowing what to do with your life, then I feel you might get a few kicks out of this blog, and maybe even some motivation, or at least feeling understood.

I’m here to write about my journey, including critical moments in all their potential embarrassment and glory, as well as useful knowledge I’ve picked up along the way. I don’t know about you, but I have this useless habit of getting adequate at a hobby (potentially expensive one), and then dropping it for another, costly hobby. Quite a few of these hobbys are crafty and many of them are technology related.

My past wasn’t smooth sailing, as I’m sure many can relate, and as time goes on, I will touch on these topics and the moments where I grow from my past. To summarize a few topics briefly; abuse from a parent suffering from Borderline Personality Disorder, abuse from a partner, drug addiction, eating disorders and the difficult road I’m still on, suffering from Major Depression for 2 decades, the resulting suicide attempt I was fortunately resuscitated from and that battle since then, losing jobs, starting a business, learning how important Trying is, noticing those who are mentally ill around me and relating to their suffering, and having the desire to help somehow now.

It’s been a battle, but I can say today I feel the world is a good place, and being on the other side of a lot of that makes it a little more beautiful, I think. Many days there is something I notice, something I hadn’t before when there was the cloud of depression, and those days I often learn something. I want to write about those days. If that interests you, maybe take a look around and visit every once in a while. I’d enjoy your company.
