Okay, I genuinely have no idea how to start this. Do I start with an apology for not posting in so long (after a promised revamp) or do I just pretend that it never even happened? Have you even noticed that I’ve been gone? (Lol don’t answer that)
So, yeah, hi again. It’s ya girl, back to this blogging business again.
The truth is that I’ve had a bit of writers block as of late. If you’ve been following my blog for a while you will know that I have always just written about my own life experiences. It worked for me beautifully at the time, because the beauty (and horror) of an adolescent life, is that it is always progressing forward and thanks to some hormones, little changes are a BIG deal. Which is probably why I probably wrote 384 articles about leaving cert stress.
But the thing is; I’m not doing my leaving cert anymore, college isn’t a new phenomenon to myself or to any of my peers. I'm truthfully just trekking through this little thing called life with relatively no (major) complications.
That may be a little white lie on my behalf considering I text my friends in all caps about some dramatic (apparently) life altering event about some boy, or some gossip usually once a week. As riveting as I’m sure some of you may find those conversations, I can’t exactly air my friends (and my own) dirty laundry for the world to see. (Or you know, my relatively smaller audience considering I’ve dropped off the face of the earth for so long.) Because people I know may read it, and I’m not really the ‘exposing’ type.
But maybe don’t push me too hard.
Taylor Swift is my idol after all.
Anyways, what I’m saying is; the fountain of my previous content has dried up over time, and I’ve been desperately searching for a new source. I miss blogging; I miss writing about stuff which I actually want to write about… Using my laptop for something other than English assignments and Netflix.
So, we’re accepting all of this - I’m going to try and blog again.
Okay, so how do I fill you in on what happened in my life over the past several months.
Well, much to many people's surprise, I actually got a job. Unfortunately, I wasn’t one of those lucky ones who spent their Summer’s jet setting around Europe and brunching in various ‘instagrammable’ locations. Instead, I actually ended up serving rather a lot of those enviable brunches to people, rather than consuming them myself. (Don’t even ask how many times I wished that French Toast would be ‘accidentally’ ordered so I could have the chance to devour it when the customers weren’t looking.) So yeah, I’m a waitress now and worked 45+ hours a week every week over Summer; which of course is why my insta game suffered so much...
But getting a job and working for every cent I make has been one of the best things that happened to me; and made me more fiercely aware of my own independence than ever before. So much so, that even though I seem to live in a permanent state of exhaustion, I would not let go of my job for anything.
To keep my sanity, I went on a few trips, saw a few friends and even went on a few dates (I know Mom be proud of me); but other than that, my Summer passed without much excitement. Which is probably why it wasn’t optimum blogging time.
Now, I don’t know why I think that now is the time to start blogging again; considering I am just about treading water with work, college and social activities. But hey, who doesn’t love a challenge.
So, yeah, I’m back again.
(Also if I suddenly stop blogging again, feel free to visit Trinity and hit me xoxo)
