It has been a while since my last blog post, and I’m really sorry! A lot of it is because I really haven’t been motivated to keep up with my blog as well as a lack of confidence with my writing. But I have come to realize that everyone has something that they don’t like about themselves. Weather it’s physically or mentally, everyone has something they wish they could change, and if you don’t then I envy you. What I’ve also come to know about this is, we cannot let our insecurities define us. I think it’s important to realize them then learn to accept them. So while I might not be the best writer I do have a passion for sharing my thoughts with others and eventually my writing will get better in the process.
Anyway, I’ll stop ranting lol. A lot has happened since my last post. I’ve had a few gigs this summer and have written a bunch of original songs. Originals are really new for me, while I started writing about two years ago, this year I was able to really get in to it and make some songs that I’m super happy about. I have also met a great group of people who I could not be more thankful for. They’re the people that I honestly needed at this point in my life and already I know that they’re the type of people I want to keep in my life as well.
I have also been very focused on my social media. This is honestly difficult for me to do. I do love sharing with you guys, but I hate taking pictures!! Not because of my confidence, but because I’ve never been the one to post pictures of just myself as the main focus. Which sounds ridiculous because that’s kind of a big part about being a musician. But along with that, I’m also really awkward when it comes to posing! So it takes me a while to act normal, so I look like an actual human being. So I really hope that as I keep doing it I’ll continue to get better!
Over all this summer has been really great! It’s been filled with great adventures and friends. I’m not ready for it to end, but I’m ready to be able to see my friends and continue with theater and track this year.
