I have finally arrived to the glorious WordPress. Phone in hand, a little stoned, wearing a 48 karat gold name plate necklace and ripped mom jeans.. ready to talk. Welcome to my very first ever blog post. I wonder what brought you here, future reader. What was it about MY blog that caught your attention. I imagine by the time I actually acquire some readers my page won’t look so dry. It needs some personality and I don’t even know where to start. I guess one start could be introducing myself? Yes. I’m Lamona Sky. I’m a 5’3, 20 something year old female and to be honest, future reader, I am a hot ass mess. A beautiful work in progress is what I like to tell myself, but a hot ass mess nonetheless. I discovered blogspot via google search engine. I love tumblr but I’m getting to a point in my life that using really cool pictures and witty text posts to express my most intimate, unique thoughts just isn’t cutting it. Also I wanted a fresh audience. Maybe by the time you’re reading this I’ll have felt comfortable enough to go completely public with this blog, but for now I’m only comfortable with mostly COMPLETE strangers knowing these intimate unique thoughts.
As of two months ago I am an official resident of the DMV. Being that I’ve lived in the south a majority of my life, its a huge change. And by huge change I mean a culture shock from hell. Actually,let me not be so dramatic. I wouldn’t go as far as to say its been a “shock from hell”, but definitely extremely different. They all talk and move so fast here. They interact different. They eat different. I lived in the north for a few years when I was a lot younger but honestly looking back on those times, the difference between northerners and southerners was the LAST thing on my mind. Now a days, when I’m out, its all I can seem to notice when I study people around me. I’ve literally been moving around my entire life I don’t know why I’m having such a hard time getting acclimated but I am. I miss the South. I miss my family. I miss the simplicity. There are some positives about this place though, my favorite is the liberalism. I love that anyone can be whoever the fuck they want here and no one cares. No one has time to look up from the email they’re sending to judge you. No one has time to say something about your outfit to the lady sitting next to them. Its pretty cool. And I hate to admit it, but the eat-healthy-wave everyone here seems to be on is actually smart. Extra, annoying at times, but smart. When I’m on the metro, another convenience this place has to offer, I always think about how Ive been dreaming about going to New York my entire life and now I’m realizing if I’m overwhelmed in DC, New York would eat me alive. I might let it.
Now, future reader, I’m sure you’re wondering why on earth would someone pick up and move from the south all the way to the DMV. Well, my name is Lamona Sky and I moved here to escape my ex boyfriend and our toxic ass relationship. It was one of those the-only-way-i’ll-have-a-chance-of-getting-over-you-is-if-I-leave-town-kind-of-situations. Also it just wasn’t safe for me there anymore. Mentally more then anything. There’s a story there, but i’ll save it for another post. I think this went pretty well, don’t you? My very first post. I am a blogger. My name is Lamona Sky and I am a beautiful work in progress.. that blogs.
