Traipsing Into The Forest

I am experiencing multiple periods of transition at the moment.

X dumped me a couple of days ago, so I'm between boyfriends. It breaks my heart and I miss him like crazy, but I also hate being single. Therefore I'm going to get "back in the game" right away and start dating again. In fact, I went out last night. Perhaps I will share my adventures in romance-seeking... we'll see. It's not like I haven't brought y'all on a first date before.

In addition to monitoring the fluctuations of my love life, this month I am gearing up for renewed academic vigor. The fall/winter semester begins on August 18th, and I have signed up for three classes. The thought of plunging back into school makes me apprehensive, but also very excited. Linguistic anthropology will be fascinating, English 101 will improve my essay skills, and statistics will be horrible in some ways but hopefully also edifying. (Ugh, drawing graphs. Yay, understanding math better!)

More saliently, this blog may be approaching a transition as well. My inclination to photograph and describe my outfits is dwindling. I'm still interested and passionate about fashion, and I don't want to stop updating this space, but I need to figure out some new kind of post that will be engaging, creative, and consistently replicable. It's hard for me to let go of doing a daily outfit post, because that's the content people have responded to most. However, I would rather rework my routine and lose some readers than feel bored with my own journal. I want to be able to put my heart into this.

I am trying to feel things out, not announcing a big change. It's very likely that I will twirl around in front of the camera again, but the frequency may decrease. As I said before, we'll see!

  1. I'm so sorry about the breakup, Sonya. I'm thinking of you and hope you can find a blogging path you love. I used to teach English 101 and I think you are a very talented writer. Maybe you can find some inspiration in the new semester. Big hugs.

  3. So sorry about the breakup *hugs* But it sounds like you've got plenty of things to keep you busy and take your mind off it, I would have loved to take a linguistics class in school! Can't wait to hear about your new adventures!

    Maybe you can share some interesting tidbits from your classes with us? I know that academic stuff curated in your unique style would be awesome!

  5. Sorry about the break up, Sonya. Sending you the best vibes I can from far away, and electronic hugs a plenty. <3
    I can relate with the blog transition. I've been blogging less and less, and a lot of it has to do with my new job and how much time it takes up. I also feel less than thrilled by the prospect of taking outfit photos (though taking pictures of costumes sounds fun).
    No matter what you choose to blog about, I will continue to read because I love hearing what you have to say! I think you're wonderful and I am glad that I know you via the internet. :)

  6. Sorry to hear about your breakup. In a way it's probably good that you're about to start school again, because that sort of flurry of activity (and potentially meeting new people) can be a good distraction. That's how it was in my experience, anyway. And it makes sense to change up your blog if you don't want to do a steady stream of OOTDs constantly. That's the magic of blogging, you can do pretty much whatever you want!

  7. Aw I'm just now seeing this. I'm sorry about your breakup. That's always awful. I hope you're back in the game and finding other cool guys asap! Starting new classes will be exciting too! I loved every anthropology class I ever took. It's a fascinating subject - which is probably why I ended up making that my (mostly useless) minor!

  8. I'm so sorry about things with X. I read your post on Yourself Cared, and it kind of threw me into this spiraling memory tunnel, where all things similar I've personally been through resurfaced. But that's a good sign... it's a strong post. You're a strong writer. You're a strong girl. And for what it's worth, I've been loving catching up on your blog and seeing the transitions you're making.
