It’s been a minute since we’ve come on here to write a piece like this. As we inch further into fall, closer to the election, and nowhere near towards the end of COVID-19, I have had a lot on my mind. The first is that this isn’t what I thought my content would look like in 2020. We were supposed to have too many weddings this year. So much so that before the pandemic, I had to make a spreadsheet of where my money was going with regards to weddings and all the gifts I was purchasing for them. I discovered that working 100% remotely is not a lifestyle I aspire for.
Like many of you, I am tired, burnt out and frustrated. Every week, there is a new event or happening to be upset over. I don’t always share this and it’s not because I’m turning a blind eye to what’s happening in the world. In fact, I sometimes feel much deeper in my feelings about what’s going on that it would be detrimental to express. If there is any place where I’m more open about my feelings, it’s here. For me, it’s not appropriate to be popping off on social every chance I get. It’s also not very healthy both for myself and the viewer.
If you’ve been following for awhile, you know my content hasn’t been that much different. However, during the pandemic, there has been more emphasis on TikTok, K-dramas, and now BTS. In lieu of expressing rage for world events, I’ve chosen to share the things that brought me light in those darker moments. These are things that distract, bring me joy and make me laugh. I recognize they may not resonate; that it looks like I’m going into strange territory, but they are the things that keep me going. When it comes to content, there isn’t a right answer really.
We’re all just doing our best, aren’t we?
