Where I Choose to Begin

As a young teenager (roughly between the ages of 14 and 16), I kept an online journal. Every day I'd ask my mother permission to eagerly tie up our ever-needed phone line to connect to my online world. With each new day came an in-depth recap of the events that occured the day before. Sometimes to confess my "love" to my first real boyfriend. Looking back, I laugh at my desperate attempt to look cool by explaining the "amazing adventures" I'd encountered. I remember giving up on my journal once my life really did become a little cooler and I no longer had the time to tell the world about my daily voyages through adolescence. Not that I don't appreciate being able to relive the several hundred pages of my teenage life by simply pulling an enormous hidden 3-ring binder from deep within my closet.
This time around, things are going to be a little different. I still don't have the time to tell everyone in cyberspace about my daily adventures, but I'm going to make some and this time, it's going to be anonymous. This blog will be for your entertainment and as for me, it will act as my best friend and a sanctuary for my sanity.
So who am I? I am a 20 year old mess of confusion. I am female. No, I am a woman. I am grounded, wait, no I'm not, yes I am. You get the point. I struggle with the question of whether I can handle all of the very long, short answer, essay type tests God chooses to bless me with. I have found that just like I do in school, I simply babble and tip-toe until I feel like I've come up with an answer that answers the question while never really answering the question at all. Since taking on this mindset I have been able to conquer even the testiest of tests and have done it in stride. Kind of.
Since I'm being "anonymous," which, by the way, sounds very cool, I feel like I should have some key of characters in order for you (really meaning me), to remember what the hell I'm talking about. Wait, I feel a very (non) original idea coming on! So a few weeks ago some of the "older" ladies from my second job (I call it my second job, because it's just not as cool as my first job) and a friend of mine decided to have coctails and go see Sex and the City. Movie was great, by the way. Well, what I saw of it through the hurricane of tears and laughter. Anyway, to get to the point, the characters came daringly close to those of my friends and I, so I'm going to go with that.
Me (20, playing the role of Carrie. confused)
Charlotte (21, the best friend, denies being confused)
Samantha (20, the crazy one, really confused)
Big (23, the ex, unfortunately still playing a big role)
Aidan (23, a long-time friend/?, confused as well)
Aleksandr (24, trying to be the romancer, haven't figured this one out yet, probably confused though)
You'll also hear about Mom (39) and Sister 1 (16) and Sister 2 (14).
I'm sure I'll be adding to this...
