I’m literally sneaking into this editor right now because I feel as if y’all are going to come for me. *sigh*
But in all honesty, it does feel good to be back though. So where have I been? Hhm, let’s say somewhere between fighting laziness and feeling down for no actual reason plus writing my first semester exams (Ohh my God!! they were fantastic by the way). It’s obvious though that I’ve been struggling to keep up with this blog. However, I believe it’s safe to say that I am back now and for good this time.
Is it just me or January literally flew by, because I feel like 2019 just started yesterday and all of a sudden we’re down to the first week of February already. Damnn!! Either way it’s been a breeze, January was wonderful (I hope it was for you too!); I successfully wrapped up my first semester in university, discovered a SIDE HUSTLE that ACTUALLY PAYS (let me know in the comments if you want to know about it), I started my FITNESS JOURNEY which is a big big major for me (follow my instagram which I will link down below to see sneak peeks), made some new friends (I suck at this btw), what can I say God has been faithful through it all.
Part of why I couldn’t blog actually is because your girl has been revamping –sort of. If you haven’t already noticed, you can see that my blog’s name is no longer sunshinestreak.wordpress.com but now thrivinglightinthestorm.com. You may be wondering why the switch. Well, the name “sunshinestreak” doesn’t really resonate with me anymore. Although you can tell they are both similar (“sunshine”, “light”), I wanted a name that gave me and my blog some more purpose if that makes sense. I had a few other options though, but this one did it for me so yeahhh sister we thrivin’ and we shining no matter what storm life throws our way. We’ll light it up and shine whatsoever!! It hasn’t really been easy though, changing it up and all but I’ll pull through. So far I have a matching instagram account(@thrivinglightinthestorm) please follow me on there so we can keep in touch and you can see what I’m up to outside of this blog (: PS- It’s new so don’t judge too much, thanks
Hopefully by the time this post is live, I would have been done designing the logo (for the blog). Yess this whole blogging thing is really bringing out the art savvy side of me I never even knew existed lol. I’m designing with Canva by the way. It’s a really cool and beginner friendly designing tool, most bloggers and even I myself use it to make blog graphics and stuff like that.
Sigh, constantly I just pray for grace to carry through and really up my blogging game because I honestly want to do so much better. Wow this is such a chatty blog post; I’ve never done anything like this before. Let me know in the comments if I should do more stuff like this, it could be a monthly feature or something.
It’s about time I wrap this up *tears* I could go on forever believe me, but I doubt y’all are that interested in what goes on in my life lol. But I am interested in you and I do really want to get to know y’all. So spam my dms on instagram (@thrivinglightinthestorm), I’d really love to hear from you. I’m getting a twitter soon so y’all can also hit me up on there. Let me know how January went for you and if you have any plans this month of February *wink*
You mean a lot,
