Social Media Popularity.

Social Media Popularity. So let's talk about it. How does one acquire such a popularity? Does it really depend on your content or honestly your pure popularity? I for one have never been very social, in my real life or my "internet life"... not that I knock those who are.. You go Glen Coco! It is mind boggling though, how does a person who has a total of eight pictures have over 11K followers on instagram? How does someone who has tweeted maybe twenty times have over three hundred followers?
I really don't want to sound bitter or jealous, that's totally not my intention... I honestly just want to know the secret! I am for one not the best blogger.. Heck I'm hardly here, but in the event that I dedicated more time to my blog how could I generate readers?! If one posts content, it's usually in the hopes someone will read, relate and be able to give feedback, correct?
If I'm being totally honest, which I usually am that's one of the main reasons I'm such a crappy blogger.. pure fear that no one cares about what I have to say/ show them.. I hope I'm not alone in that sense. I love to put out content in hopes there is some weirdo's out there that can relate to this lone weirdo right here! So if you know this sanctified secret please do share! I would love to be able to reach out to a wider audience... Honestly just find some lone wolves like myself.

Seldom and Sporadic.

Hello, anyone who reads this.
I know I suck at blogging on a daily, well monthly basis for that matter. I won't make up anymore excuses, my last three posts probably have a bunch of crappy ones for reference. I am alive though! I do want to continue blogging, as it is a creative outlet, an outlet I desperately need. 
I won't lie and make up dates I'll consistently blog, because c'mon.. who are we kidding?
I honestly don't have much to ramble about today. Much has changed, but I would prefer to actually dedicate more time to a post describing my life changes... I would however like to share a song and band I am currently OBSESSED with.  
The Ceremonies are absolute music goodness! Give them a listen. Until then my lovely two and a half readers. Have a lovely weekend. c:

Sunday Funday: Thrifting DIY

I once was lost, but now I'm found. Yes yes, although no one, EVER reads my blog I would like to say I'm the event that someone, an actual human is reading this. Life happens ya know? Kudos to all the people who blog on daily/weekly basis, on top of their every day life happenings.
Any who I bring you a DIY. It's been seen many a times, Youtube, Pinterest, Blogs, you name it it's been there.. Even so decided to take a wack at it and violah ! (Totes. butchered that word, I know, I know)
But hey look! (I hate started off sentences with but, it's grammatically incorrect.)
The front of the finished product.
You know what they say though, business in the front, party in the BACK!
Pair this bad boy with a colorful bandaeu and your good to go for a summer day. Although summer is coming to an end, don't stray away from your summer pieces until the weather completely forbids it!
P.S. I'm sorry I didn't include step by step photographs and instructions... I was new to DIY-ing and hadn't prepared to blog this, ahhh ya live and ya learn.

Yeah, not the most grand of blog posts, but for someone whose just sticking their toes in the water I would like to give myself a pat on the back. 
Look out for new blogposts. I just recently discovered two online shops I HAVE to tell you about. I also have to tell you guys about The Fault in Our Stars by John Green, have you read it? Let me know! ALSO, a sister turned TWENTY-ONE on August the 6th, *Raises the highest of roofs.*
Until then, have a great night, or morning depending what time it is in your country and have a fantastic week!

Hello old friend.

Because I can be vain, well at times I can be, here's a huge picture of my face playing coy.. lol.
Oh goodness where to start, a sorry wouldn't even begin to be able to cover it.. but indeed I am. Sorry for going over a month, wow, A MONTH!!!! With no posts... Gees I was doing well too, but alas I hit a rut, writer's (blogger's) block and strayed away.
I am however back, with some new exciting changes happening in my life. First and foremost I have a new job! I'm overjoyed with that newest change to my life. Some financial woes will be healed with this better paying job. c: I look forward to being able to fund a giveaway in my near future.. first one hundred? Who knows, but I'll definitely be looking into that!
In addition to new job, I also got my learner's permit, such an overdue task! I had ranted about being chicken and leaving the DMV, due to my fear of failure, a while ago; but know that that deed is done I HAVE to learn how to drive! I've set myself a goal for my birthday, which is August 6, to know how to operate the darned car, if not have my actual license at least know how to go to the corner store!!!
Wow, those changes seemed a lot more exciting in my head, ha well they're new so that's somewhat exciting? SHE'S STEALING YOUR PENSION in the comments if you've read this far! I've missed this interaction and can't wait to dive back into the swing of things. Looking forward to hear from my fellow bloggers/readers and seeing what's a going on the interwebs.. leave me a comment saying hello! I'd love new blogs to read as well, just drop me a line!

A fear of failure might as well be a fear of flying.

Hello my lovelies. Wow, this feels odd, I haven't posted in a little over two weeks, my longest hiatus since I've started blogging. I do apologize, which sometimes feels in vain, as I say I'll be better, I'll blog more, but can't seem to stick to my word. Sorry guys. :c
Failure. Failure is a grand fear of many of us, today I'd like to speak a bit on the subject. Yesterday, I went to get my learner's permit; if you've been following me since the beginning you'd know driving was big on my list of accomplishments of this year. Well guys, I'm shamed, and pretty darn embarrassed to say I didn't get my permit. For those of you who don't use the same driving regulations as we do in the States, before actually getting your drivers license you get your learners permit, unless you're eighteen or older, in which case you can get your license without a permit... I think. Either way, I don't have either. 
Yes, a twenty year old who can't drive. Embarrassing right? Did I fail my test? No, I didn't. I didn't even  take it. My father took me, and for one, the line at the DMV was literally out the door, which set my nerves on edge... and I honestly didn't feel ready. It might've been all the practice tests that shook me up, I don't know.. maybe I'm just making up excuses, which I probably am... either way I was too nervous to take a forty question quiz.
Again, to touch on the subject of failure. Yes I was feeling every bit of self doubt imaginable, which, more than likely is the real reason I didn't have the guts to take the test. I feared failing a simple quiz most fifteen year olds ace without the need to study. (If you've read this far comment SHE'S STEALING YOUR PENSION down below, Misfits obsessed, as always.) So my question to you my lovely readers, is how do you overcome any self doubt, fear of failure or any such experiences?
 I'm all about positivity, happiness and good vibes... I'm still beating my self about about not spreading all those good vibes yesterday! Alas, yesterday is yesterday, today is today! Upon the embarrassing tiddle I experienced yesterday I decided to keep studying my handbook as well as using my online resources to muster up my confidence.
With this kind of embarrassing tale, I bid you adieu!

“For this I would have been damned forever. For this I would have given up everything.”

Hello my lovelies, my sincere apologies as I've been such an absentee blogger as of late. I am however, back now! c; A little update/excuse: LIFE HAPPENS. Not that I don't love blogging, but ya know, life catches up with you as well as time. 
One of the main culprits for my absence:
I'm an avid reader, and once a good book has a hold of me there's no getting me back! Clockwork Princess, the last book in The Infernal Devices trilogy just came out last week, and you'd better believe I was at my nearest book section it was available! 
Some might argue that my taste in literature is juvenile, as I've read at least four YA novels that will become movies this year... to those people: Sorry I'm not sorry!
I love getting lost in a great adventure, a sort of getaway from my blandly normal life. I'd love any other book recommendations. I'm not all teenage novels, as it would appear; I love to read things with depth as well! So my lovely followers what are you reading? Anything good I should pick up?
I've missed your feedback dearly!
