To Make It Happen // An Introduction

Hi everyone!
Before I properly launch Woebegone in the new year, I have decided in the last month and few days of 2014 I'm going to do a summary of how I came to create this blog, why I created this blog, what is going to be in it and what I aim to achieve by it. This will lead up to the chime of 2015 and my new years resolution which is quite simply: 'to make it happen.'
My name is Anne Timmons. I'm from Glasgow in Scotland and it's my favourite city in the world. I'm currently sixteen years old. I'm the oldest that I've ever been, and yet I'm conscious of how young I still am. I'm the midst of my teenage years, and I have decided I want to document this time of my life. I don't want to live, or ever be content with, a boring life.
I want to see life as an adventure, plunge headlong into it, squeeze every drop of life out of existence. I am still so young and so I want to be reckless,to seek out adventure, and in a tribute to friends I lost too young, I want to live every day as if it were my last. While I'm young and able to do so, I want to fearlessly follow my dreams. I want to leave an impact on this world. I want more.  
I know that I could achieve so much in my life, you know? I have this beautifully blank canvas in front of me, complete with fresh paints and as Dr Seuss said, I have the option to steer my feet in whatever direction I choose. I am so lucky.
Yet, with a future of infinite possibilities ahead, comes anxiety. What if I continue to procrastinate and then one day realise that never will I ever now be able to do the things which I could have easily have done when I was younger? Soon I'll be 17, and that fear has just become very real to me. Already I feel like I'm wasting this time I have, ever so slowly running out of time.
2014, this year that has just passed,has been nothing but a series of extraordinary events for me. It's a year I wish I had documented sooner. I never want to feel like that again, and that realisation  has concluded in me creating this blog. My first goal is to create something spectacular by the age of 21, which comes at the end of 2019. Five years from now.
 Woebegone is the end of an era. It's a reflection on the past sixteen years of knowing I want to do something important, but having no idea what to do, how to do it, or where I go next. But it is also the beginning. It is the very, very beginning of what I know will be one hell of an adventure.

Woebegone is the end of the days of uncertainty, and the beginning of the rest of my life.

Welcome to Woebegone.
