Hello everyone, I have finally returned to Tumblr! :) I made a last minute decision to delete my blog in May when I realized that I felt like I needed to share everything on here and I found myself feeling increasingly negative towards myself. I believe this was because by writing about “me” so much (that’s what personal blogs are for, I guess) caused for more scrutinous self inspection, and I felt like I was becoming more and more self-centered in real life. I didn’t like who I was becoming and needed a break! I had every intention of returning at some point, because I really do love Tumblr and I love following all of my favorite blogs and seeing what you guys are doing daily with your amazing lives!
Life without Tumblr was surprisingly normal, and I felt like I was more connected to my friends and family. I didn’t analyze every bit of myself daily nor take daily selfies. I just lived in the moment and went with the ebb and flow of life, and thoroughly enjoyed my last summer home in beautiful Arizona before moving to Philadelphia (!!) next week!
I was planning on returning after I’d moved and was settled in, and making this blog more about my next chapter (postbacc masters program in Philly), but now that my boyfriend has officially left for medical school, I need a) something else to occupy my mind, b) another outlet for emotion and expression, and c) to (ironically) begin focusing on myself again, in terms of being my best self and organizing my life. What better place to do that than Tumblr?!
I’ve missed you all!! Can’t wait to go follow everyone and see you guys on my dash again :)
I’ll post a “life update” later with pictures!
