Writer’s block is really punching me in the face lately, and I’m not loving it. Bear with me, because this is going to be incoherent.
My friend Kelly uses every hip slang word/phrase ever, and lately her word of the moment is shameless. As in “yes that outfit is shameless” or “I wish I could post this on insta but I’m just not shameless enough” or… well, you get the picture. And I like it, actually, because it makes me think about living my most shameless life. And unfortunately I am so boring that for the most part that just means posting more on social media… and a little bit of wearing less/going out more, ya know.
I think a lot of the time the less you write, the less you feel motivated to write. Especially when it comes to something like a blog where your only measurable “success” comes from the number of people engaging with you and the number of people engaging with you depends on how present you are…
The longer I go without writing, or posting a snapchat story, or tweeting something, the more I stress about it. Like, now it’s not just a post it’s a damn comeback, and I’m not ready for it. But if I would just GO FOR IT every once in a while maybe it wouldn’t be so hard. If I made snapchat stories (or god forbid instagram stories) every day, then it wouldn’t feel like such a big deal. If I wrote shameless blog posts about my mediocre make up looks and my favourite body wash and whatever other stupid shit I’m doing then I wouldn’t have to think so hard about how to reappear on the internet all the time… you know?
I have posted one instagram story in my life, and I was quite honestly pretty intoxicated… but I think that’s something I will be doing from now on — follow along here! (shameless plug). I’ll be writing things that I don’t think anyone but me cares about — because yolo, why not? And you know, just in general, I’m going to start showing off, living life, and being my fabulous, most shameless self.
Why not, right?
For the record I fully support any and all shameless posts by you guys, so pls link me to wherever you get the most wild — insta, snapchat, your blog, etc. I need friends, you know.
ANYWAY what have you all been up to? I started a new job a few weeks ago as a receptionist at a wax bar, hence the radio silence. Between that and my other job, I’ve been running around like a mad woman lately. I think I’m finally starting to get into the swing of things, though — thank god. And of course I’ve been finding time for patio drinks, cute coffee shops, and the odd night out. Sleep is not high on the priority list at the moment but, hey, I’m young. What’s new with YOU?
Hope you’re all soaking up the sunshine!
