Don’t judge by the title. I promise it’s not going to be all negative. It’s just an open an honest conversation, from me to you, on being single. I’m actually thankful for my singleness (It took a lot of prayers and a lot of revelations to get to this moment lol), but there are some sucky moments if I’m being real. This is just the disclaimer, so let’s start this off right!
It’s been a long time. For so long, I had no idea what I was going to write in this post but I knew it needed to be done. To be honest, I still don’t know what I’m gonna write but hopefully as I start typing it will flow lol. Let’s see, where did we leave off? I was in my last semester of college (which was kicking my butt). I was worried about finding a job, what I wanted to do, where I was gonna live, etc. etc. You know, the normal worries for someone who was about to graduate. The big question was do I move back home or stay in Orlando? I felt like I needed to stay in Orlando, but I didn’t know if I was going to find a job to be able to afford to live as an entry level employee. I felt like I had the weight of the world on my shoulders. It was tough. Especially being the planner that I am, it’s hard not knowing what your next steps are.
So a couple of weeks ago, I turned 22. You know that one age that no one really acknowledged until Taylor Swift made a song about it? Surprisingly, I did not have Taylor Swift blaring through the apartment, but I must say I am feeling 22. This year is a huge year for me. I graduate from college and end that season of my life. I have to put my degree to work and find a big girl job. This year, adulting happens in full effect. So many changes are about to happen and take place in my life. I honestly don’t know if I’m ready for it, but it doesn’t matter because it’s happening lol.
Through my many life experiences at 22, I have learned some things. You know that saying, “What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger?” I used to think it was a bunch of bologna, but it honestly is true. Over the past couple of years I have had amazing memories, but also some horrible ones. But in every moment, good and bad, I have learned a lesson. Here are a few things I’ve learned over the years:
It has been way too long! I don’t remember the last time I actually sat down to type up a blog post. In some ways it feels weird and other ways it feels familiar. I’ve missed this. I think this is about the fourth time I’ve had to apologize for a long absence on my blog. I’m not going to lie, sometimes life gets in the way. I wasn’t really in a creative head space to create new content for you guys. We all have those moments, but I’m back! I’m not going to make any promises about the amount of blog posts I will be able to put up a week, but I can promise you I will try. I have some exciting things already in the works that I can’t wait to share with you guys. I just wanted to say thank you for everyone who has been here from day 1. You loyal, I appreciate you! To all of my new readers, WELCOME! Get ready for some new posts in the next couple of days. I’ll be sharing about some things I’ve learned in my 22 years on this earth. It’s going to be great!
It has been wayyyyyyyy too long! I feel like I spend a lot of time apologizing for my absences. Honestly, I’m still trying to figure out the whole blogging thing. It’s hard trying to figure out your voice and look that you want your blog to embody. It’s also hard when I’m trying to do everything myself, but I think I’m starting to take steps in the right direction. It’s not an excuse, I’m just being honest. Some new things are in the works for me to able to manage all of this.
Buttttttt there’s a new change on the blog… THE NEW BANNER
So there is a new look on the blog and I hope you guys like it! I don’t even know the amount of times I have changed the design of my blog since I started blogging. I’m just that person that always likes to switch things up and I get tired of seeing the same thing. I can honestly say though, I am really loving this banner. When I first switched over to WordPress, I really wanted to incorporate watercolor in the banner because I thought it was fun and girly, but I could never seem to get it the way I wanted it, but I finally did. Pink is my favorite color, so of course I started incorporating that as well.
Not only is the design new but new posts are coming I promise! Tomorrow will be the continuation of building a wardrobe. Pt.1 was sooooo long ago, but pt.2 will be here tomorrow. I let you guys in on a few of my favorite bloggers who inspired me to start blogging. It was really hard to narrow it down, but somehow I managed. So be on the lookout for that tomorrow!
I hope you guys love the new design, please let me know what you think!
