My Reason to Restart

This is a longer version of what I wrote two weeks ago. As an update from then: I have cleaned my room. And that was today, so that barely counts. I had a spur of motivation today and took control. As my floor become more and more visible, I came to a realization: I'm an adult and I need to start acting like one. I have grown so much this past year, and it's about time that the rest of my life catches up. I'm moving to a new continent by myself in less than two months. Time to be an adult. I'm not going to bore you with my huge game plan to accomplish this. Just let me tell you how this will affect you.

The gateway to adulthood is ahead.

This blog started as a way for me to put some creativity out there. Since then, I think I've lost that. I am more me than I've ever been, but this blog has not been a reflection of that. I'm not looking forward to writing anymore. It feels like a chore because nothing is truly original anymore. So things are about to change. I'll still be posting on Tuesdays and Saturdays. But I'm about to put a lot more me out there. I have so many ideas written down, and I'm going to start sharing them. When a creative moment strikes, you'll see my creativity. I'm going to continue with book reviews and monthly favourites because I love writing those, and they feel more like me. I may throw in a Pinterest Challenge or product review when the mood strikes, but for the most part, you're going to get a good hold of what my voice exactly is.

I know I've written like this before. Realistically, the organization thing is not going to happen the way I want it to. But making this blog more like me is something I can easily get behind. It's something I can stick to because the ideas I want to write about are the things I'm passionate about. I know readers like personal blogs, so this is going to be more about my perspective. Wait for Saturday and give me a chance to show you what I have to offer.
