Happy New Year!

I hope everyone has had a wonderful holiday this year and wish everyone all the best in 2012.

I am unsure about whether or not I will continue to blog on here.  However, I will most likely continue to use my tumblr, so if you are interested in the girlier side of me, please feel free to follow me on tumblr, being a [bored] girl.

I have done a lot of thinking these past couple weeks as the year has come to an end and I must say that 2011 has been a year of growth and understanding of who I am.  If it weren’t for blogging, or my friends, or the experiences I have had, I would never be where I am today.  I am always thankful and grateful for all the things that have happened to me and I choose to live a life without regret.  Sometimes, I may feel like I regret something that I have done or not done in the past but I come to the conclusion that there is no point in regretting what you cannot change.  It is best to learn from those mistakes and move on.

I have always known to follow my instincts but I often fail to do so and end up wishing I had but in the end, I take it as a lesson to be learned.  Trust my instincts.  Eventually I’ll get it right.

I have learned many things in 2011 but most importantly for 2012, I believe my motto will be “alone does not have to be lonely”

And with that, I leave you all till next time whenever that may be.

Some places you can find me, where I will for sure be posting will be:

❤ I will continue to write but maybe not in such a public format.

Lots of love from me to you in 2012 ❤

What do you want to be when you grow up?

What do you want to be when you grow up?

Have you ever thought about what you said back when you were asked that question as a child?  “What do you want to be when you grow up?”

A few days ago, I asked my friend this question since I felt like he had lost interest in everything and was a little bit lost himself.  I remember when I first realized that I was lost and unsure about what I wanted to do with my life and such, I had asked myself this question.

My answer to this question as a child was that I wanted to be a writer.  I remember it started off with songwriting, then poetry, but always something to do with writing.  I don’t know why I wanted to be a writer as a child, maybe it’s because I loved to read but that was what I wanted to be when I grew up.  I stopped thinking that I could be a writer when I realized I wasn’t that good at writing.  I just didn’t feel like I wrote as well as other people.  I somehow just couldn’t express myself the way I wanted to and so I gave up my dream to become a writer.

I guess I never did give up completely because I always kept journals on and off all my life.  Writing was my outlet as was many other things but it helped me through a lot.  It was like a friend that was always there no matter what.  And it still is my friend that helps me through anything and everything that comes at me.

I started this blog before I had asked myself that question but while I had been blogging, I had asked myself this question.  I realized that in some way, I’m living out my childhood dream of being a writer by writing this blog.  But now, I really want to improve my writing and since I use to have a hard time updating this blog on a regular basis, I have decided to start writing stories or just random paragraphs here and there to practice.  My friends have always told me, my life could be a TV Show or Movie, maybe it’s time to try to write out my life story.

So, I would like to introduce the category of writing.  It will have random paragraphs, maybe some short stories, etc.  I hope you will enjoy them and I welcome any and ALL feedback.  I’m trying to improve here.

Now, I throw this question back to all my readers.

“What do you want to be when you grow up?”

Please comment below and let me know what you had wanted to be when you grow up and what you are doing now.  It’ll be interesting to see if people kept to their childhood dream.

Re-Introduction to a little bit of everything 

Hello again,

It has been awhile and I have surely missed this blog.  You have no idea how much I have missed writing here.  When I first started this blog, I was lost and well I still am, but I feel like I have slowly found my way again.  Writing here had really helped me get to know myself better.  So, I have missed it and wished I never had to stop but now I’m back.

Maybe it was a good thing I had stopped, since I have changed my blog around a bit.  Before it was a lot about my own personal journey, which really meant that I only wrote when I was struggling and who wants to read the depressing?

What’s staying the same?

I am still just a bored girl blogging a little bit of everything.

What’s different?

My interests have changed just as I had predicted when I first started this blog.  However, I have revamped the blog to have a little bit more focus or maybe I mean organization.  I use to be everywhere because I blogged with my emotions and my often scattered thoughts.  Now that I am not so lost anymore, I feel like my blog needs to be more focused because I am.

I’m not going to waste any more time here.  I will slowly reintroduce you all to…well…me!

sometimes...

sometimes, you need to stop looking back and start looking ahead.

❤ sarah
