Change is good...

Hey, guys...

Today's post is a little different (I find that I've been saying that a lot recently). If you follow me on Twitter, you may have noticed that during the short periods that I was active this week, I mentioned that I'm reevaluating this space and what I want it to be. 

For the past three years, I've been looking forward to having the time to run my own blog where I'd document bits of my life and look back at it in 10 years and reminisce. Why not just post on Facebook, you ask? 'Cause this blog will teach me skills I need in the real working world. I'm a business student so I need to practice time management, writing, dedication and effective communication. Got it? 

SO anyways.. I've gained inspiration from thousands of blogs but I found myself almost imitating rather than "doing me". The past 6 months running From 18 To Life have been fun but it's not the vibe I was expecting. As mentioned in my mini Twitter rant (you should just follow me on there, tbh) I feel like blogs these days are about blogging tips and how to be successful and how to make money and how to gain followers and what not. That's okay...but what's not okay is having every single post I come across be about the road to cyber success. And they usually say the same thing. Social media. Pictures. Consistency. Contacting brands. Like, bro...some of us don't want to make a serious living out of this, we just wanna have fun *cue Cindy Lauper* Okay so....I'm digressing from my main point.... 

The whole point of this post is to say that this space has undergone and will continue to undergo some changes! As you can see...new header and new color scheme. I feel like this one is more grown and sophisticated. agree? I want to change the direction of this space and give it a purpose and push me to grow and to inspire others. (CHEESY). But for real. So. *exhales* I just want to keep it real. Forget scheduling, forget planning 6 months in advance, forget stats (btw thanks for 200 followers! lol). But seriously. From now on, I will focus on: 

Life

 This being the most random things, bits of style, things I'm loving, me out and about and not scheduled posts or anything. If I want to go to the tube station that day and take pictures of the trains and post them. Then I shall do so. I don't care if it's not "engaging" enough, but it's what I felt like. Hopefully I'll stop being a couch (or bed) potato.

Music

 Playlists, songs I'm loving, songs I'm hating, apps, etc. 

Books

 As you can see, my summer reading list is my most popular post *proud moment* I want to share more of what I'm reading on here. 

LOL

the usual banter. 

Home

So ever since I got lost in Ikea and had several panic attacks trying to find my way out, I've grown a love for home decor, interior design, call it what you want. So I'll be sharing new in's and a few snapshots of my space irl. 

Food

You know I love food too much to stop! 

So those are my main focuses, and I hope to make this space more "me".  This has been on my mind for quite some time, but I decided to go ahead with the changes. If you feel like you need to change something about yourself (like in real life), I urge that you do it! You'll feel much better! 

So...what do you think of the new design? Yes? No? 
And please let me know if you agree with anything I've said! 

Until Next Time, 
Peace and Love.
