Hello there! Welcome to my little slice of the internet. My name is Lacie and I’m a quarter-lifer from Georgia. I’m an introvert who uses my blog as a way to get some social interaction without having to see the face to face judgement of those around me.
I love nature and hiking, and thanks to my parents, I have quite the sense of wanderlust. I devour books like no one’s business. I can cook a mean chocolate pie, sew a quilt for a new baby, fix most basic car problems, and listen to your issues like your teddy bear.
In short, I am a complex person and I have, much like my blog, quite the list of interests. I believe that everyone has a story to tell and they are all important. This is my story. Sometimes it’s funny, sometimes it’s sad, but it is mine, and it is true.
Welcome to See You Starside.
Many people have commented and asked me about my blog name, See You Starside. There really is no short or easy answer to this, but then again, is there ever? I will do my best to explain it.
I was raised in a place with no close neighbors. Light pollution was never a problem and I’ve always been able to see the stars at night and I’ve always loved them. I’ve always found them very peaceful. I used to just lay in the grass and stare at them for as long as I could without getting in trouble. There is just something deeply fascinating about feeling so close to something that is really so very far away.
But mostly, I have always had a tendency to gravitate towards certain phrases or poems or quotes. Sometimes there isn’t always a good reason to explain why they just resonate with my heart strings, but they do. This phrase was one of them. I have always been a fan of Bungie’s Halo game franchise. The first one came out when I was ten years old. It was a great game and holds a lot of fond memories of me, my brother, and our cousins. The franchise kept going, and my boyfriend and I spent many hours playing Halo Reach together. When Bungie finally said good bye to the Halo series (thanks to 343 and microsoft), they wrote a really heart felt letter to the fans and teased about the studio going “dark” while they developed a completely new franchise. They left off with a phrase about a single strand of light (much like a star) keeping the fans together and reminding us what drew us together. That we would look to the skies and find hope. The last phrase was “see you starside”.
Something about that phrase and the fact I’ve always loved the moon and stars just rattled around in my brain for a long time. When I decided to start a new blog ( my last one was a xanga. Yep, xanga.) I just couldn’t get that phrase out of my head for the title. It just seems to encompass how I feel about things. Stars are just there. They don’t need you to notice them to shine, they just light the night anyways. For me, star gazing has always been about internal reflection and a time for thinking, which is a good representative of my blogging style.
Thank you for all your interest, and I’ll see you starside.
