About Me

ME, MYSELF & I

Hey there! Let’s begin with the basics of me. My name is Caitlin Jones, and I have been growing up in a country town in Victoria, Australia for the past 20 years of my life. At the moment I am studying a Bachelor of Media and Communication majoring in Social Media; ironic, I know. And when I finish with that accomplishment, I am wanting to complete a PhD in the same field, as I am in love with learning in the media and communication area; again, ironic, I know. Oh and if you haven’t noticed already, I suffer from mental illnesses, in particular, anxiety and depression. You can read my blog posts to get the update on that!

Hey there! Let’s begin with the basics of me. My name is Caitlin Jones, and I have been growing up in a country town in Victoria, Australia for the past 20 years of my life. At the moment I am studying a Bachelor of Media and Communication majoring in Social Media; ironic, I know. And when I finish with that accomplishment, I am wanting to complete a PhD in the same field, as I am in love with learning in the media and communication area; again, ironic, I know. Oh and if you haven’t noticed already, I suffer from mental illnesses, in particular, anxiety and depression. But this section isn’t to learn about that; you can read my blog posts to get the update on that!

I always kept my feelings of anxiety and depression under the rug, even when I started seeking professional help, I kept it there. It was after about four months of continuous psychologist and doctor appointments that I had let all my friends know. I did this by writing My First Blog Post and shared it on both my Facebook and Instagram. The reason why was because I didn’t want to be constantly repeating myself to people I meet, I didn’t want to have that awkward part of the conversation where I go deep about what is happening; They already knew, and they were aware.

So there is the reasoning behind the content of the blog, and here we go about why I choose to write a blog, instead of the classic one-off Facebook post. From the age of 15, I was fascinated by those that had their own YouTube channels and blog sites, where they would share their passions and stories. I knew that was something I wanted to do, But I wasn’t quite sure what I would showcase. With that, I left that dream behind and moved forward, but always had that desire with me. It wasn’t until I survive a torturous few months, where my anxiety and depression were placing me in an unstable and uncontrollable state of mind that I decided to share my story. One of the factors that got me through that time of my life was thinking that if I was able to stay alive, the reason was that I had to share my life story in order to help those gain an understanding, as well as help those who find themselves in the same situation as I was.

That’s how and why my blog started.
