One wonders…


Hello. I’ve been thinking recently about many deep things.Subjects such as moving on, growing up, adapting and maturity have come to my head and I feel I should discuss my feelings, to you, the reader.

I am 15 years old, and I will be 16 in just under 7 weeks.I am nearing the end of my time in Secondary school, I will be doing my exams and once my year have finished them we go our separate ways, to bigger and brighter things.College, apprenticeships, jobs.Things are only going to get harder.

I’ve also been thinking about relationships. 5-6 years ago, I wasn’t interested in that poppycock, I was more interested with my toys and trying to get a high score on wheel of salvation.But now, I have changed.I would like a girlfriend, I want someone who I can spend time with, have intelligent conversation with, and keep me company.And no, not that mushy stuff others get up to with their partner.But I would like that special someone who cares as much for me as I do for them.

I also think about this website as well! And I will explain why.Obviously, I won’t be alive forever, I am aware of my own mortality.This website is called ‘If you ask me…’ and it is an ‘views page’ so to speak.I would hate to think of this website dying with me.When my time finally comes, I will probably get a list of candidates together and pick someone to succeed me.

The main point of this blog is simple, I have so much to do and it’s scary.But I need to take it one step at a time.I talk about moving on, settling down with someone and dying.But the fact of the matter is that it doesn’t happen in one go, it takes time, and I hope my time is long enough so that I can do these things.I’ll be back soon.
