Not Just Melanoma

Since I have decided the chance of ever getting Kathy Lee Gifford's job is unlikely, I figured I would start doing what I truly enjoy: Writing. When I was diagnosed with melanoma (read blog here) I began using the blog as my online diary. It tracks every appointment, every interesting news article, every fear, and every minor bitch session. Not only is it a heck of a lot cheaper than therapy, it introduced me to people all around the world who can relate to my situation. 

Although melanoma makes up a great deal of my thoughts, I have decided that I need to get back to living my life as a 24 year old female. Although I have no intention of ending my other blog, I see no reason why I should not begin another that is not entirely focused on my journey with the evil black beast, melanoma. 

I forgot how much I love to write. Who says I have to simply write about melanoma? Well, no one. But, I do not want to mix up my crazy life (read--crazy opinions about life) into a blog that has been so personal. Instead, I will use this blog to write about what ever pops in my head. I tend to read a lot, and I always wish I could discuss certain parts of books with people. Although my boyfriend listens, I am sure he could not care less about a line in Elizabeth Gilbert's book that really makes me ponder life. 

So, I have no true idea what direction this blog will take. 

But, isn't that the exciting part? 


  1. I really enjoy your writing style, but frankly, I try to forget about my melanoma whenever possible. I can't tell you how much I'm looking forward to getting to read your thoughts on some other topics and enjoy your writing even when I'm avoiding my "other" life!

  2. Yay!!! I'm so excited to read more of the brilliance that is YOU. Love you, as always : )

  3. I totally agree with Tim!! There are sooo many other important and fun things that go on in each of our lives other then the big "M." I greatly look forward to read this new blog!!! Love ya Chels

  4. You write enough blogs, and I might just never have to buy another book again!
