Not really been a huge fan of Instagram lately. Haven’t had the desire to sit and scroll, haven’t had the desire to type out my thoughts accompanied with pictures that don’t really fully encapsulate the moments that they represent.
I have actually been writing a lot and thinking a lot and doing a lot. This week I’ve been scrambling to wrap up my first feature article that will be published by a magazine I’m not going to name yet, but I am very excited about (If you know me well you’ve probably heard me blabbing about this project for almost a year now). I’m dreaming and starting the preliminary research for new projects and adventures. I’m 8 weeks out from graduating from college.
So with all of that, I think it’s fine to take a break. To step back from this little app and put my energy where it is much more needed. In the people around me who I love, in my work for school and my job and my passions. Into curiosity and what comes next. When I have something worth sharing, I’ll be back. Not that, really, any of this matters, and anyone really cares. But that’s the beauty of social media I guess, just putting words into the world, for the sake of words.
Ancestral land of the Nlaka'pamux and the Puget Sound Salish people. It’s important to recognize the land for where it came from, not just what we can do with it today. I’m constantly learning about what it means to occupy stolen land and what we can do about it. The first step is just to learn and recognize.
