No, I have not disappeared off the face of the blogosphere, but my long absence has definitely left me with a lot of catching up to do around here… I really appreciate all of your sweet comments, likes, nominations, and follows since I have been gone! I didn’t mean to take a long break, but I honestly needed time to get my life together. I hope that you are all doing well, and it’s nice to be back. Here are some recent highlights… 

  1. I became an adult… Hello 18!
  2. I began my first job as a part-time cashier.
  3. I was accepted into a university’s Honors College!
  4. I performed one last time in a contemporary piece last month.
  5. I have been in self-quarantine for about thirteen days.
  6. All of my classes have converted to online for the rest of the semester, and I will officially graduate in May!

Wow, that’s a lot, but that pretty much sums up the past two months… What have you guys been up to lately? Do I have any special post requests? Be sure to keep an eye out for more content because I have some fun ideas that I am looking forward to sharing. Please stay safe, and thanks for reading!

Social Media

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.
