This is just one of those rare short posts, but I would like to say, “Happy Birthday” to my blog. It’s been exactly one year since I first started blogging on WordPress.
I first started blogging because of a highschool teacher, Mrs. M, who hated me. One day, she was telling a fellow classmate beside me to start a fashion blog because she was interested in a fashion career. Mrs. M said that it was a great outlet for people who want to express their feelings in writing and that it improves one’s writing skills.
Mrs. M then proceeded to ask each student where they planned on attending college. She deliberately asked everyone in the room except for me. So, I raised my hand and told her that I wanted to go to college in France to become a teacher.
Mrs. M laughed and said, “You should work on passing your baccalauréat exams before you even think about college or writing a blog.” As the weeks went by, rumors were going around in the teachers’ lounge that I would never finish highschool.
Not only did I pass my exams with “mention assez bien” honors, I graduated, got into the first college I applied to, started the ‘Breakfast with the Beatles’ blog and am now an English teacher for children and adults.
Mrs. M can suck it.
