this has been on my mind for quite some time, and yet i still am unsure of what to do. the fact that i will be moving into my dorm in one week from right now scares me and excites me all at once. it also saddens me that i will be leaving my life at home with my friends and family, and what i am so used to. i welcome change within different aspects of my life, but this change is far greater than anything before.

with the new adaptations to my life as a "college student" and an "art student"; an independent (kind of...) adult living on her own (kind of...) im not sure how much of my old life i will be able to/ will want to hold on to.

of course i will hold on to relationships with my dearest friends and family, and my values and dreams, but there are some aspects im not sure will be able to make the transition: such as my blog.

i have LOVED (in capitals even!) blogging and sharing my sense of style with the whole world (whether they pay attention to it or not). i love doing different activities just so i can post them, and creating recipes and outfits to share with some amazing followers!

however, im not sure just how convenient it will be to do so in college when i dont have a) a personal photographer (aka hannah, my wonderful sister), b) a kitchen (so that rules out recipes), c) much of anything to create (ruling out crafts for the most part), and d) the time...ill be busy trying to keep on up my 936 page novel ill be reading for a seminar/discussion (dont even get me started on how excited i am...).

as much as i love blogging and everything around this place where i can channel my creative energy, im not sure if i can continue documenting it on this site. i will for sure keep my photography blog up, for thats much easier to update every once in a while when i have some beautiful photos to share. i am going to take a "trial run" of being absent from this blog next week as i prepare to move in to college, if i find i am missing a part of me that needs to stay, i will try to find a way to blog, maybe if just once a week or so. im not sure, i will be deciding this as i settle into the college scene.

but dont worry, once i graduate, ill be back, and better than ever to take the blogging world by a storm and be one of the most famous bloggers out there; its my dream and let me tell you, it WILL come true.

love, alaina shea and a butterfly kiss
