Hey loves, Happy Wednesday!
was lost and pretty confused. My blog and social media were hindering me from knowing myself. I was constantly trying to be someone people liked; wear clothes people liked, and design my room how people would like it. I never really thought about my likes and dislikes, and I needed to figure some of that out without having influences from the outside (internet) world, so I just stopped blogging cold turkey.In all honesty, 2016 was a big mess for me, it was full of pain, heartache, fear, self-doubt, and loss but it was one of the most formative years I have experienced. I had an opportunity to get to know myself, I gained a lot of mental clarity as to who I want to be in life, and even better-who I don’t want to be in life. Although 2016 was one of the hardest years I’ve experienced so far, it was also one of the most important years of my life.2017 has been a completely different, so far it’s been pretty great. I’ve been focused, determined, and happy. I constantly push positive thoughts into my mind when negative ones come my way and It has paid off. I got through the terrible college admissions waiting game and got into all the schools I applied to. Yay! I even made a decision on where I will be attending (stay tuned for the announcement on social media ).
My life has been moderately (I can’t say crazy) busy these days. I am currently an assistant choreographer for a youth production of Tchaikovsky’s (ballet), and I am also in the midst of a room refresh (I know, right before I move out, I’m weird ), but I can’t wait to show you what I’ve been working on! I also took an HTML and CSS class last semester so I can finally change the little interface things on the blog that make me go crazy without having to bug my web designer friend Trina of Pish and Posh Designs who designed this blog! Seriously if you need someone to design your website or blog she is amazing!
I’ve had a lot more free time this year especially this semester and I’ve been just trying take it in before life gets crazy. I’ve been filling my extra time with reading many magazines and books, taking lots of long soaks in the bath (TMI?), meditating (Okay, I’m still working on that one), dancing, drinking a ton of lemon water, rose lemonade and best of all I’ve been getting to know my beautiful, fun self! My break has been quite nice, but I am ready to come back and stay. I was probably ready in January; I even wrote a blog post, but not blogging had become a habit, and I was worried I couldn’t commit.
I have to build the habit of blogging and instagrammimng back up again, so I have created an editorial calendar to keep me consistent and on schedule. With that being said, I know that I will be insanely busy once I start college, so I can not promise any kind of post consistency then. I have no idea how much free time I will have, and I also don’t want to the be an anti-social person so blogging may be put on the back burner at least in the beginning of the school year.
The good news is that this summer I will be able to do a lot of prep and create a ton of content that I can post throughout the year!! I truly hope I’ll have time to blog during college because I do not want this blog to be abandoned again. I love blogging and being a blogger, but my education always comes first.
Lastly, I just want to thank you for reading this blog, I know I have lost a lot of followers and readers over the year, so I am grateful to anyone who is here (you). I also want to thank everyone who reached out to me during my hiatus, wondering where I was what I was doing If I was okay, etc… Those were the people who gave me the strength to bite my pride and get back here. I am so happy to be back here in my little corner of the web, and I am so ready to be in a committed relationship with this blog!
