Wow. It’s been over a year since I last touched this blog and I feel a little guilty.
Like…what have you even been doing? Well, besides the occasional mental breakdown, juggling assignments and a dissertation, working, growing my edges back, and trying to maintain some semblance of a social life, nothing much. You know, the usual. There’s good news though – I’m finished with uni! But I swear for three weeks after, the grind never stopped, as I was kept busy trying to set my art business up. Who knew it’d be so incredibly tedious and painstaking? I find I’m great at getting things going…and not as good at maintaining that energy all the way through. So just imagine my feelings of bliss now that it’s done! I’ve only just recently let the fact that I’ve finished education forever sink into my brain, now that I don’t have a mountain of tasks to do. I hear my impeding existential crises already.
So…why come back now? I’m glad you asked. During that hectic Creative Writing student life, I had virtually no time to create art. I’m sure some of my fellow creatives will understand when I say I need hours at a time (you know those trance-like states where you forget to eat) to be at my best, and get the most fulfilment. So as soon as that last assignment touched the counter of the English office, that’s all I could think about doing. I also think it’s because I was just tired of reading and writing words. I had over twenty hefty sized books on loan from the library, as well as 16,000 words to squeeze out of my mind. I don’t need to say more. But now I’m itching to get back in touch with my first love again.
I’ve grown a lot since starting this blog – it hasn’t felt like it, but it’s been on the net for over two years now! And during that time, my tastes have evolved and so have my desires for its aims. I’ve realised just how much of a multi-faceted, creative individual I am. So besides loving art, travel, and more superficial things like fashion (which I assure you I haven’t lost an interest in), I also have opinions. A lot of them. And if any of you follow me on Twitter and pay attention to the odd tweet that surfaces on the ocean that is your timeline, you probably already know. I want my blog to reflect this. A little window into my mind, if you will. These opinions will probably translate into book and series reviews, posts on current affairs and issues, and also random thoughts that plague me at 2 am in the morning (because, why not?).
I look forward to posting more new content, and hope you guys enjoy the journey!
