This is one of those blog posts where I have a lot to say but I have no idea on where to begin.
I feel like I haven't spoken on my blog for a while. I did 2 posts whilst I was away, but apart from that, I have felt rather disconnected from it. I want to get back into posting consistently, and talking to you guys just like I used to all the time.
Blogging is weird. A lot of the time you feel like you are just talking into a void and nobody is listening. I have addressed this in a post before, but sometimes the feeling of talking to nobody is kind of cool, because you feel like you can vent and express your feelings.
So, let's get caught up, and all ready to start afresh. There is a lot of exciting things coming up, but it would make more sense if I told you about what has been happening before I told you what's about to happen.
Recently, I finished my job/apprenticeship, and flew to America to visit my friend Andrea. That was intense. America was interesting. I will do a whole blog post soon about what surprised me and some tips on travelling alone / going to the states for the first time. I spent two weeks there, before reluctantly coming home and back to reality. I think two weeks was a good amount of time, but now I am home, I wish I was back. That is always the case isn't it. If you want to see what I got up to in America, you can check out the vlogs on my YouTube channel or watch the highlights on my Instagram stories.
I also got my third tattoo whilst in America. I am thinking about doing a post or video about all my tattoos if that would be of interest. For now, please enjoy the pic of it below. It was so painful!
Since being back, I have tried to get back into working on my blog, YouTube and other side projects, but it has been a struggle. It's been a struggle to get motivated and stuck in, when I have literally been stuck in bed all day. I have not been ill, just very tired. I think the jet lag just made me that way. It's finally easing up after a week and a bit, but I am still very much struggling to get up in the mornings and actually do stuff. I am only writing this post because I decided to come to a coffee shop to do work today, as there is no way I'd do it at home when my bed and the Office box set is there. Side note, I have become obsessed with the US office. That is all.
So, what's coming up? Well, I am going to Guernsey mid August to visit another friend of mine which is SO exciting. I have not seen her in over 18 months and I cannot wait! I am going to leave my MacBook at home (well I am still trying to convince myself that this is a good idea) and just have 4 days of total chill time and fun. I am going to take my vlogging camera though of course, I really want to capture the mems to look back on further down the line. I am just going to leave the edit until I am back and make the most of the time there. EEEEEEEE I am that excited.
For the rest of the summer, I don't have any other concrete plans. Days out and catching up with friends and family for sure, but no more trips for now (I don't think ;)) sadly. I am just going to try and make the most of life, my family and Sheffield before I move to Derby in September. I am going for Uni, and I am really looking forward to the change. However, I am eager to make the most of my summer before that change and all the studying and stuff that goes along with it. Plus, I am so stoked to go homeware and stationery shopping! Yay.
I am going to leave this post here before it gets too long, but I hope you liked it!
Bye for now,
