One Year Anniversary

Wow, my little blog is already a year old. Technically, the anniversary was back on February 25, but we all know I don’t get to anything in a timely manner. 😛 I’m both surprised and proud of myself for keeping at it thus far. I may not have been consistent with my posts, but I refused to give up. This blog is like my sanctuary from the real world. And writing is how I cope with hardships.

The intent of this blog was to express myself in ways I felt I couldn’t in my daily life. I started it to reveal the real me. From crazy photo shoots to personal stories, nothing was off limits. I quickly discovered that as I opened up through blogging I also became much more comfortable with myself. I was beginning to transform into the person I had always wanted to show to the world. No more hiding. No more trepidation. I can’t quell my sass!

The Asylum Attendant persona is who I aspired to be. Fierce, successful, and honest. I didn’t like the life of Jonathan. He was too scared, too selfless, and much too boring. I wanted to escape his reality and enter a world free from restriction. This blog was my portal to a new identity. I like who I’ve become. 🙂

I really enjoy sharing my love of music, androgyny, Gothic culture, poetry, psychology, and cute boys 😉 with such a rad audience. I know my next year of blogging will be even more exciting and unpredictable.

Much love from my asylum to yours,

~Jonathan

    • Yay! Happy Anniversary! Actually mine was at the beginning of Feb, but I wasn’t able to get my act together to post then, :P. I look forward to another year following you! (Hmm sounds like a stalker! lol)

    • I’m so grateful for all your support, Izzy. 😀 Awesome readers and friends like you inspire me to write. I’m hoping to eventually transform into a unicorn, so I’ll need to figure out how to type with hooves. 😉 Thank you for your wonderfully sweet comments!

  2. Oh my Goth, how time has flown! 😉 I can remember first reading your blog and loved it from the very start.
    Happy anniversary, my friend! (Looking good, I might add.)

    • Danke! 😀 Your support has really pushed me to keep writing. You’re my top commenter and it means a lot to know awesome people like you care about my crazy world. ❤
