Some of your probably remember the Blog Everyday in May challenge. Well I have decided to pick up it's new sister challenge, blogtember. It's the same idea--we are given a predetermined topic to write on each day. I am determined that I am going to finish each topic. So determined, in fact, that I am already going ahead and scheduling them throughout the month. That is so unlike me, but maybe it will be good for getting me into the habit! So here we go with day one!
Describe where or what you come from. The people, the places, and/or the factors that make up who you are.
I grew up in a tiny town in Northeast Georgia--best described as about halfway between Clemson and Athens. You have probably never heard of Elberton before unless you are from that area. The only thing we have going for ourselves is our dying granite industry. Growing up, I was probably one of the few friends I ever had that actually said, "I wouldn't mind living here." After moving off to college, meeting new people, and learning that there was life outside my small town, I cannot stand to go back.
Don't get me wrong, I miss small town life, just not life in my small town.
On the other hand, everyone knowing everybody sure did have it's perks. It was nice to be able to always count on having someone around that you knew. To this day, I cannot go to a store back home where I don't know a single person. Whenever you are down and out, you can always count on having many someones rally around you bringing you up and making sure that you know you are not alone.
I hope the other topics will be better than this one. I am totally not feeling my creative juices flowing at all this morning. I'm sorry :(
