A Big Change...
Where have I been? Well... a job change, a change of heart, and an explanation is where/due!
There's been some pretty big changes around here lately, I'm sure some of you have noticed that I've slowly fizzled out of the blogging game for a while, and there's a whole bunch of reasons why.
What's with the blog change?
I was looking through my website and as I scrolled through I realised exactly how outdated everything was, from my 'About Me' page to everything else, this page needed a MAJOR update and some TLC.
So here she is... isn't she BEAUTIFUL.
I also feel like my content and interests has changed too I guess? If we go back to the OG lockdown days I was heavily into my baking find my homemade honeycomb here? And I just feel as though that's changed now, which is great!
So... what's happened?
Good question I suppose, after a slight mental breakdown at my previous job (I think I held it together pretty well lol), I felt stuck and as though I was getting nowhere with my life at the ripe age of 20. So, I decided to look for something that I was genuinely interested in and something I knew that I'd enjoy for a looooong time.
I found myself waking up, working, and going to sleep and honestly the entire thing became too exhausing and I was sacrificing too much of my personal life for something that worked me to death (well... almost). Eat, sleep, work, repeat. I needed to put myself first and begin to make some serious changes.
Now I've found myself in a much happier, healthier and non-toxic position where I find myself waking up genuinely excited and optimistic for the day ahead. This is the change I so desperately needed and I've genuinely never been happier.
Why did I stop blogging?
Through me throwing myself into things that definitely shouldn't have been my priority, I let my love of writing, photography and recording fizzle into almost nothing. It wasn't until I've started writing again at my new job that my inspiration for writing has returned and I feel as though I have the knack for it like I did before.
I also finished my 2nd year of university, so the last-minute workload that's a little too familiar for me was something that ruined my creativity too, as I found myself working until the early hours of the morning and then having to work a sporadic shift pattern. Things take over and that's okay, but going back to your roots (can you even call it that?) is something that's homely for me.
I want to throw myself into all of my creative outlets, blogging, tiktok, instagram, and maybe a bit of youtube if I feel brave enough. I've decided that I want to start doing the things that I love and enjoy without worrying about the judgement from everyone else - and that's what I've started to do.
I'm genuinely excited for what's ahead, and I hope everyone feels the same about their own personal lives. But for now, I'm more than happy to share everything I possible can with you all.
Here's to the future,
