[dropcap]I[/dropcap] feel like all I’ve done on here lately is moan about how uninspired I am, or how tired I am, or how life has kinda taken over and I haven’t really paid enough attention to the whole blog thing. Well, surprise! I’m at it again. Hopefully this is the last one. Term has officially ended, I’ve officially graduated, and I’m pretty free and easy for the next few months. I’m talking little trips away, hanging out with pals, and blogging my little heart out.
I am, for now, super uninspired though. This blog photo was taken months ago, my idea bank is running dry and I’m still a little frazzled. After Paris, Durham seems a little meh for content creating which is such a shame because it’s such a beautiful city full of amazing people and fabulous places. What I need to do for next term is sit down at the start, with a massive cup of tea, and create a little action plan/mood board for keeping Durham fresh and for keeping my content exciting and interesting, for you and for me.
But Durham can wait for now. I’m back home and ready to do nothing for a little while.
I think part of the reason that I’m so uninspired lately is social media. It’s such a drain. I’m just really bored with all of it. Partly because I’ve actually made some amazing friends this year, and so spend less time by myself scrolling through instagram, and partly because it’s just so bad for the old self-esteem. The less inspired it has made me, and the less time I spend practicing the art of instagram, the less I want to post/engage and less inspired I am. It’s a vicious cycle. My feed has also suffered because of the dreaded ‘Durham brown’ which is beautiful in real life, but falls incredibly flat on instagram.
Basically, instagram is just really annoying. Hopefully my little trips this summer will cheer me up a little bit and I can get it back on track. Meh.
Another issue is that I have no real aspirations for the moment. I have no set personal goals or blogging goals or anything like that. Graduating took up all of my time, and so did the whole masters application/finding somewhere to live next year/etc., so now they’re all done it’s all a bit empty. Summer is obviously a time to have fun, but I need to sort something out. I’m away until the start of August, so I won’t worry about it too much ’til then, but I really should find myself something to do. I’ll go get a job and maybe go to Paris for a weekend, and as with the Durham issue, I’ll sit down with a huge cup of tea and figure out what the hell is happening in my life and what needs to be done.
I’d like to have all the drive that I had for completing my degree back. It was nice to care about something. As I’ve said for the last few weeks, now I’m just really tired.0
