Long time no see!
As clearly evident, I haven't posted in a while and haven't replied to blog comments in months. To be completely honest, I don't think I am going to blog anymore.
It's crazy that I have changed so much since when I started blogging. When I created this blog I had so much more free time and thus had a lot more energy to put into blogging. I loved blogging so much that at the time I had a hard time believing that I would ever be burnt out from it. But I did.
Additionally, this blog was created in a different place in my life. Although my last year of high school wasn't terrible, it wasn't particularly pleasant. It's amazing how much happier I have been since coming to uni. Although uni has created quite the workload for me, the experiences I have had since I've been here and the friendships I have made have made it all worth it.
I had a feeling going into uni that I wouldn't have much time to blog. Along with being burnt out, I decided to stock pile posts I had already written and take a break. I had originally intended to come back to blogging at some point in uni, but that didn't happen.
I still love beauty. However, the way I love beauty is different now. It has definitely become more minimalist. I have stopped purchasing as many beauty products (although I have sneaked in some purchases here and there), and have become more picky about what I buy. I have also started finishing up makeup (I've finished four concealers since coming to uni!!!!)!
I also exclusively watch Youtube videos now. I used to love reading blogs & interacting with the bloggers, but with uni I no longer have time for doing so. I believe I also was overwhelmed by how many posts I had to read and felt consumed that I would never be able to have an empty Bloglovin' feed.
Perhaps someday I will return to blogging, but I don't see that happening in the foreseeable future. Nevertheless, I had a great time in the blogging community and appreciate everyone's kindness.
