The last time I was anything reminiscent of consistent on this blog was in September at the start of what was supposed to be one of my final years in college… back when life was a lot more simple. Since September – well, since the beginning of 2016 – my life has taken several interesting turns.
I’ve been slammed with emotional and traumatic experiences, I’ve picked up and jumped ship more times than I can count, and I’ve delved into things I never thought I could do. September was the start of a lot of things. For one, it was the month that I went full throttle and quit a job that paid me relatively well. For the first time in a long time, I was jobless and committed to living life as a crazy college kid.
So what did I do with all that stolen time?
I ran away to Miami, New York, and Canada. I got a tattoo. I went out and had fun, and I moved back in with my mom. Then I buckled down and started to build something new. I started interning for a notable newspaper in my area, and I was promoted in a publication on my university. Put simply, your girl was in it to win it and I met a lot of amazing people along the way including a fair share of band members.
Through these networks I’ve written stories about everything from the LGBTQ+ community on campus to fashion shows to support cancer research. I’ve had the opportunity to dive head first into a new career and become invested in building a name for myself and exploring this crazy thing called journalism. I’ve done a lot of great things in just a few short months but because I’ve committed 120% of myself to several publications it showed on this blog.
My posts became less about what I was up to and more about things that I deemed were newsworthy. My blog became less about me, and more about news – and to be honest, it wasn’t exactly what I wanted of this site. So I stopped posting and found other platforms to showcase my writing but regardless of all the things I’ve been getting myself into, I’ve always thought about my readers and this blog that I’ve created – and I’ve decided to finally commit to it and you.
I want to create content that I can be proud of on this site, just like I’ve done for others and in order to do that I’ll need your help and your interaction. The comments that I see on some of my posts really light up my life, and I always do my best to respond to them and I’d love to build a stronger community based on that interaction.
So let’s start here over, just me and you.
