we visited our hometown for the first time in a while and it was...bittersweet, to say the least. there's something so overwhelming about coming back to a place that used to hold so much significance to you. you have this idea in your mind of how it's going to be, but then once you actually go back, everything's different. suddenly, you feel detached; like you've never walked these streets before. you go from being a distinguished local to an unrecognizable dweeb with orange hair. it's bitter, because this trip made me realize that an entire chapter of my life has come to an end. but it's also sweet because I've moved on. here's to embracing new chapters. βœ¨πŸ’žπŸ‚

"So October, please don't hide. Don't let the sun outshine you. Don't let the flowers outgrow you. We've all been desperately waiting for you since tax season. Our bones are aching for your amber skies and your literally-cold-yet-metaphotically-warm embrace. I don't know what it is about you, but every time we meet, I feel like I'm myself again." -from my love letter to October, featured in the @bellagracemagazine blog hop πŸ‚πŸŽƒβœ¨

social media is bittersweet because while I love using it to express myself and share my life, sometimes I feel obligated to be overly active on it. I know some of you feel the same way sometimes too. I can't even tell you how many times I've seen people apologize for not being active, for being MIA, or not posting as often "as they should." as for me, i used to post authentically, when i really wanted to share a moment, a feeling, or even something small that made my day. but now if i go weeks without posting, I start to feel guilty. sometimes I even feel stressed out. so I'll post a selfie, a throwback or try to rush out new content...which is ridiculous. from now on, I want to post with purpose. no more filler posts, forced aesthetic posts, or "I haven't posted in a while so here's a random picture" posts. I want to be proud of everything I share with you all and don't want to clog your feed with irrelevant clutter. we don't need to post everyday or even every week. we don't owe anyone anything. while it may feel like URL life is bigger than IRL life, it's not. take it at your own pace and share things with passion. βœ¨πŸ‚πŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ’•
