If you check my page on a semi-regular basis, I'm sure you will have instantly noticed many changes to the site. There are several reasons for the changes. The first reason, is because I feel like I've been going on a personal journey recently. I've been trying to figure out exactly who I am, and what I want. I noticed that my blog didn't really match who I am. It reflected the person I thought I was. The person I wanted everyone to think I am. But I'm not the bubbly, optimistic, rainbows and daisies person everyone probably assumed I was. I'm a much more complex individual. I can be a lot darker and deeper than the superficial smiles and perfect flowers, and peppy pop songs I so frequently posted. So I wanted the images on here to be edgier, and so far the new layout feels right. Who knows, give me a few months, and this site could easily look completely different. I'm constantly changing as a person.
For the record, just because the site looks a bit darker, I promise I'm not going through some crazy bout of depression. I'm a very happy and fulfilled person. I have the most incredible people in my life, and I'm so thankful for them. The images on here now, I find artistic and creative. I'm inspired by so many different things. So I don't want my page to feel like it only fits into a single mold. I certainly don't fit into any one mold.
I removed pretty much all images of my face. This is honestly for my own safety, not insecurities. I realized how easy it could be for someone to steal the pictures of my face right off these pages and use them for their own sick and twisted ways. The Internet is such a corrupt place. I don't want to find an image of my face photoshopped onto a porn stars body at any point in the future. That would just be disturbing.
I hope the new layout doesn't turn anyone away from reading what I have to say. I have a voice within me that is constantly screaming to be heard. I think the updated site fits me at the time and place I am currently in at this stage of my life. I'm right on the brink of my 20th birthday. I'm trying to mature, and figure out who I'm going to be as I grow into a woman. This is such a crazy and crucial time in my life, so the change feels right. I think the site is going to start doing a better job at truely expressing who I am as an individual.
I hope you all continue to check out my page, and read my work. I hope it continues to inspire and make everyone stop and look at what's going on around and within themselves. Peace and Love.
