Oh, and this is the first set of recent photos I have posted in fo evvvvaaa. It feels kinda nice! So now you have a better idea of what my hair is lookin like these days. It's constantly changing though, so don't get too used to it!
It seems like I have so much to do (or so much that I plan on doing) lately, and then a day passes and then the next thing you know a week has flown by. Where does all the time go? I am learning to (TRY to) embrace the fact that we cannot control everything, and sometimes it feels like you're at a stand still or that things aren't going quite how you want them to. But when you really stop, take a look around you and take the time to think about the bigger picture everything kind of makes sense. Everything will eventually fall in to place if you stay positive and keep striving towards your goals. When you are passionate about something and you surround yourself with positive uplifting people, you really can't go wrong! I have been meeting so many amazing, kind, inspiring people lately. It's such a breath of fresh air.
I guess another reason I have been deep in contemplation about life and such has a lot to do with the fact that I have been away from home constantly. I have been up in LA (or off on random adventures/trips) for the majority of the past weeks. I know I have stated it a number of times, but I am quite an introverted person a lot of the time. I mean don't get me wrong, I am a fuggin weirdo of mass proportions and when you get to know me and break through my wall you can't get me to shut up. But most peoples' initial reactions when first meeting me is that I am shy or boring or even 'cold'. That last one is the label I hate the most. I am such a sensitive emotional person, I care deeply for people (even people I barely know or haven't met) and am easily affected by the things people say and do around me. I don't know whether it's a defense mechanism I have picked up over the years from relentless taunting when I was younger or if it's just the way I have always been. I like to take people in, observe their habits and mannerisms and try and pick up on who they are. I AM THE ULTIMATE PEOPLE WATCHER GUYS. But to get back to the point, being away from home and out of my little bubble of comfort (I was born and raised in the same small beach town and I tend to keep to myself) has really got me thinking about what I want to do and where I want to go with my future. My boyfriend lives in LA as well as many of my friends and babely blogger buddies AND there are soooo many more opportunities to pursue what I am drawn towards. So basically this all boils down to me coming to the conclusion that I am ready to fly the nest, find my own place, and start the next stage of my life somewhere that will best allow me to harness all of my creative energies. There is still lots to be done before then, but I am really excited for what the future holds. I have already grown so much since first starting this blog, it's really fun to look back and see the progression of everything.
I'll leave you with a song I've been listening to on repeat all morning. Gahd I love Jack White.
