I'm Back

 

Well, well, well.

Fancy seeing you around here, as it’s been quite some time. I finished my final exams last week, so I’m pleased to announce that I’m d-o-n-e with junior year. If you talk to any other person who has gone through this treacherous year, they will firmly agree that it’s akin to Dante’s 9th Circle of Hell. The absolute worst. It’s only recently hit me that I’m going to be a senior come September, but let’s not rush life. We have a full summer ahead before we even have the to cross the bridge to the land of stress, college, and my final year of high school.

During those crazy weeks of finals, I made an executive decision to take some time off from blogging. The main reason I did this was because I simply had zero time to focus on anything else other than school. The other reason, which I think is crucial to bring up, is that I wasn’t feeling inspired or motivated to blog. I know this could be seen as some ~saucy~ news to both readers and fellow people of the interweb, but yes, sometimes I just don’t want to post. After (almost) five year of blogging, I’ve realized that it’s okay to not be “on” all the time. A break is exactly what the digi-doctor ordered. 

So, at this point, you may ask… “Sloane, what’s next?”

And to that my friend, the answer is that some changes will be aflutter around here this summer. In the near future, STSS will begin the process of changing from a blog to an online portfolio with a blog component.  

Now, now, I don’t want you to think this is just for the sake of college applications or because I’m lazy. This is a decision I’ve been planning for awhile because as I grow and change, I feel like my own digital space should reflect that growth. 

Continuing on, in the next month or so, you will witness some design changes being born. To be honest, I’m not exactly sure if these changes will be happening overnight or… Forever and always winging it. Additionally, I have a plethora of digital back-logged posts from the past few months that deserve a spot in the online universe. Keep your eyes peeled for those. 

Now that the we have the nitty-gritty out in the open, time to dig into the goof stuff. What else is in store for this summer? I’ll be dancing the day away at Gov Ball on Saturday, followed by some time out in Montauk for quality surf and sun. No doubt that you’ll see me in the great Ocean State. Both Texas and California are on the horizon in July, so I’ll see you there. Finally, thank you for sticking with me this year. I’m completely aware that content has been up and down and back up, but I’m back.

Until next time, folks. Signing off.
