Unexpected Hiatus…

windowshoot

Wow, I can’t believe that it has been almost two full weeks since my last blog post, and I apologize for the unexpected hiatus. Life definitely got ahead of me as major deadlines, writer’s block, and other responsibilities hung over my head… I appreciate all of the sweet messages that you have left, and I missed the blogging community so much. I have a lot of catching up to do, but I do not intend to leave again anytime soon. I also wanted to give a shout out to Wild Writing Dreams for ranking “Don’t Be Beautiful” as a top 10 blog post! I am so humbled to have been selected…

8.  DON’T BE BEAUTIFUL

MAYSA ROSE

“When this post came out and I read the title, it threw me completely off guard, and I tentatively clicked on it. 

I didn’t regret it. 

A simple, yet heartfelt post, Maysa shares a poem by ‘Nikita Gill’, and I wish every girl could realize what Nikita wrote. 

It may be simple and short, but it’s a MUST read for all girls. I might not recommend it so much to boys, but for all you girls reading this, you have to check it out.”

I hope that you are all having a fantastic summer, and I can’t thank you enough for the continuous support despite my absence. It is great to be back!

Catch Up & Tag

These past few weeks have sent my brain swirling in many different directions, but none were even slightly related to blogging. I have been trying to get ready for school to begin, spend time with out-of-state family, brainstorm for a novel that I might consider writing soon, and study for my drivers license. Did I mention reading the Harry Potter series until my eyes hurt? In the end, I just want to recognize the fact that I have been so distant and apologize for my lack of support. I love blogging, and I absolutely love reading all of your posts. I haven’t forgotten about you, and I will definitely try to be better in the weeks ahead.

Social Media

photo'palm'

Not too long ago, I use to feel like the odd-one-out in a social atmosphere with other teens, because I always felt like I was the only one without all of the social media accounts that seem to “run” this generation. Recently, I have been realizing how much social media has completely destroyed the ACTUAL social life of so many people. It is even worse than most people realize…

If someone took your phone away from you for a week, how would you react? How hard would it be for YOU to be away from social media for that long? Some of you might be cringing at the thought of it, but think about how different this world would be if people weren’t on their phones all of the time. People would actually notice the people sitting in the same room as them, and they would get to know them better. People would talk about more than just the latest posts on their social media pages, and they would act like they actually cared about what the other person was trying to say by not multitasking on their phone. People would stop sending wordless Snap Chats of their faces to their friends online, and they would realize when they have a true friend sitting right in front of them trying to talk. Finally, people would begin to understand that there is more to this world than…social media…

Just something to think about.
