This post feels like the end of a chapter, it’s going to be my last time writing to you guys before I go to University. In a few days time I’ll be settling into my new room and living alone for the first time in my life, to say I’m terrified would be an understatement. I’m excited, but I’m scared too.
I know that my first month at uni is going to be on the crazy side and seeing as I’m studying writing I’m really not sure how often I’m going to be able to blog. I think my writing muscles are going to be exhausted from my course. I’m not going anywhere though, don’t worry. I know I’ve dropped from posting weekly to biweekly but that doesn’t mean my blogging days are over. I’ve discovered that I have more hobbies than just blogging, I love art and I even started my own art account on Instagram to share my work. I set up my own Etsy store because I love to make things and bring a smile to people’s faces. I’ve been learning a lot about myself recently and it’s been very valuable to me. By blogging less, it’s made me enjoy it more. I’m talking to you guys because I want to and not because I feel like I have to.
I guess the reason I wanted to write today was to say thank you to you guys as I know I’m not going to be around as much for a bit.
I know this kinda sounds like a fairwell post but I promise that it’s not, I just want to say thank you to you all. I’ve been reflecting on life this past week as I pack my things and I’ve realised I have a lot to be thankful for. When I started this blog I just wanted a release for my struggles. I hoped that in sharing my story with the world that I’d somehow help someone out there. What I didn’t expect was to grow an audience and community of people all around the world. Writing this blog helped me grow more confident in my writing and in turn, I felt able to apply to my dream university.
The times I’ve shared my difficulties, or shown a more vulnerable side to me, I’ve been met by nothing by kindness. When I’ve tried something new, you guys have been so encouraging. What I’ve learned by running this small corner of the internet is so valuable and I want to thank you for being a part in that.
I have a lot of exciting and challenging things planned for this blog, you’re just going be patient with me in the next month or so as I find my feet in a new place. I will be popping up in other places too, I’ve been part of a few collaborations with fellow bloggers that are coming out in September and October ( make sure you’re following me on Twitter if you want to be notified of when they’re live). So by no means is this fare well, it’s just an end to a chapter and an exciting, hopeful start to a new one.
I’m looking forward to talking to you all very soon.
If you want to support my blog whilst I’m away, I have an Etsy, Redbubble store and a ko-fi page. I’ll still be checking my email, so if you want to chat I’m still going to be around don’t worry.
