Here | 2 Years Later

It's been awhile. Too long honestly. The past two years of my life have been the craziest, hardest, most rewarding time in my life. I've learned a lot, gained a lot, and lost a lot. I have a list of excuses I could give for the reason I completely went MIA on basically all of my social media accounts but the easiest excuse I can give you is that I just had too much going on. I've moved four times in the past two years, which is more than I've moved in my entire life. I've lived in a guest room, a couch, on my own. It's been insane. The only constant in my life has been my job and my friends, which thank god for them because if I hadn't had them I probably wouldn't be where I am currently.

If you missed my post awhile ago, I don't blame you, but I moved to Arizona, by myself, in December 2015. I had lived in Ohio previously and moving across the country to a city by yourself with the majority of your family living thousands of miles away isn't easy. It's super scary and exciting and it makes you grow up a lot faster than you can expect.

Being present on social media was once such a fun and almost important part of my life for so long and then just dropping it to focus on my "real" life was strange. But honestly I hardly even thought about keeping up with Instagram or blogging. It's not that I didn't want to, I really wanted to. I would plan posts and photos to post but I would just never follow through. I never had the motivation and things were so cloudy at the time I didn't know how to make posts without sounding down and stressed out constantly.

Recently I moved, again, but to a place that is much more stable. I'm living alone now for the second time and I'm much more comfortable and things have been going so smoothly so far in this new year. I don't want to get my hopes up but it's like I can finally relax and breathe. I guess with all of this relaxing and thinking I got motivation to start up blogging again. I've really missed it, it was something that was a great creative outlet for me and connected me with a lot of people and friends from around the world. I'm not going to make any promises yet, or set up a post schedule because I feel like I'm basically starting all over. I'm not completely the same person I was two years ago and it's going to take some time to figure out what I want this to be. I still plan on posting similar things I posted before, but who knows.

So, I guess what I'm trying to say is, I'm here. I'm still here and I hope that you all are too.
