It’s been a little bit since I’ve updated Avocado Thoughts. Today I’m going to briefly touch base with you all and let you know some of my internal questions about the blog and my life recently.
As many of you know, I’m a high school senior this year and will be heading off to college this summer. As the end of the school year approaches and all of the activities I’m involved in have been winding down, I’ve been feeling pretty overwhelmed with decisions and – it might sound dramatic – my psyche.
Quick PSA: Go check out Arena from the blog From a stranger to you for inspiring me to make this post. I’ve been reading the beautiful poems she writes and the deep meaning of her posts and have fallen in love. To put it simply; I wanted to copy. Haha, I’m just kidding; if I attempted to copy that eloquence I would fail miserably. BUT I decided I would like to attempt my own version of her style of art.
I love reading the type of posts that describe a memory with feeling and emotion. I love it when I can imagine myself in the exact scene described and I love it when it makes me feel nostalgic. I’m excited to share my loves with you guys so let’s go 🙂
A little life update before starting; …did I make a spontaneous decision and cut bangs for myself this last week? Potentially yes. Do I regret it? No, I actually love it. My reasoning behind this impulsive act was that we are in quarantine.. so who’s going to see me for at least another two months? We are about to enter into the summer months (I just submitted my last assignment for school today THANK GOD) and if I ended up hating it I could grow them out a good amount before potentially seeing anybody. Anyway, I did make that drastic change to my hair – and in this post I urge you to try something new out that maybe you’re a little scared of during this quarantine! Maybe you’ll love it, like me ❤
Anyway, my month and a half long experiment has finally come to an end. If anything, this experience has given me something unique to say about what I did during the global pandemic; I didn’t wash my hair with shampoo or conditioner! Here are my concluding thoughts:)
I really appreciate you taking the time to read my ramblings, experiments and thoughts. I don’t voice my appreciation enough.
To be truthful, I’ve been a little hesitant to post about quarantining. I did… one post about quarantining on Avocado Thoughts, I believe. For some reason, in my brain, I think of posting about quarantine like I’m acknowledging it to be something worthy enough to post about. When I post something on Avocado Thoughts, it makes it very real.
I guess today’s post is gonna be about some of the first world things I’ve realized/learned while social distancing and just staying home with myself. I feel a little weird doing this as there are many people dying and losing their jobs because of Covid and I’m just here posting about some things I’ve learned from it. I hope that even though what I’m sharing here pales in comparison to the loss and suffering of the world through Covid19, my post today can help you realize some things of importance.
