2020 update — trying to get my ish together

hello loves~
welcome back to my blog!
i was planning on doing something more “inspiring” for this post, but let’s be honest… we all knew that wasn’t going to happen :’)

instead, i wanted to do something more laid back and chill — hence why i am writing this live on january 17th at 12:30pm.

for 2020 one of my goals is really get back into the swing of things. at this point, i have been out of school for 8 months, and i am dying of boredom and just tired of my daily monotonous routine. when i was in university, i thought the monotony was bad — but i was kidding myself: i am currently living such a repetitive and uninspiring life.

if you would like to hear about my recent life struggles, i invite you to watch my youtube update:

*a/n: someone please help me…*

although you can’t see what has been going on behind the scenes, i have been trying really hard to be productive at the start of this year. i started my bullet journal for the year, started planning for my blog and youtube channel, and organizing my life more efficiently.

in terms of my blog, i think wednesday are the best days to upload because it gives me time to work ahead, get my editing done, finish some last-minute details, etc.

this semester, i am retaking a class that can dictate everything for me in regards to my academic career — so i am really trying to focus and be productive with that class. with that being said, i think posting once a week is the best thing for me right now. it will allow me to prioritize and just enjoy the process of creating without stressing me out, and taking a toll on my mind and soul.

i do plan on officiating my domain, but i need to prove to myself that i can keep up with the pressures of life and maintaining my hobbies on the side. therefore, i will work really hard on getting my -ish together. in reality, there should be no excuse: i am out of school (for the most part), i have had plenty of time to sit around and do nothing, and i am honestly so tired of just sitting around and being an unproductive potato.

i think i will go ahead and wrap up this post because i feel like i can babble for forever and keep repeating the same thoughts — but that’s reserved for my journal :’)

i will definitely see you guys next wednesday with some REAL content! i hope you will continue to be patient and understanding. for those who have stuck around for the past few years, i sincerely appreciate you for sticking in there. i know i have not been the best at this “influencer” thing but i am honestly working on it!

till next time~
with love, joslyn

Post-Grad Update

hello lovelies and happy sunday!
I hope you have been healthy, high-spirited, and caring towards others. It has been a long while since I lasted posted (I believe it has been roughly four months).
Since my last update, many things have changed, and I am excited to share them with you! So, I hope you can take the time to go down memory lane with me! If not, I think I summarized everything in the vlog below, which was posted almost a month ago. If you would like to be up-to-date, please subscribe and follow my social media outlets!

We Meet Again~

Hello Loves~ 

It’s been a long time, hasn’t it? However, time has truly flown by. This week is my exam week, which means I will be returning to my blog, finally; and, I plan to stay for as long as I can.

For those who did not know, I made an executive decision to take a break from My Authentic Nature, and just focus on school. Although I did not want to make this decision, I was really juggling so much at once in terms of academics, and was having breakdowns left, and right. Furthermore, it was not professional of me to disappear, and reappear without notice; therefore, I decided to just focus on one thing — school (even though some things here and there didn’t work out like I wanted to).

A lot of things have happened since we last spoke, but no worries! Here are a couple of updates:

  • I got a new laptop!

    • If you have been following me for a while, you are probably somewhat familiar with some technical difficulties I had in the past. Long story short, my computer died, and I had to extract my hard drive, and placed it into an external disc. This allows me to access all of my old files, and provides me an extra place for storage!
  • I started a vlog channel~

    • As some of you are aware, I do use YouTube on occasion to share some of my content; but, I have decided to use YouTube as a platform for my vlogs.
      Although my life is not so glorious right now, I do plan to capture all of the good memories, and hopefully get to share both the big, and small, milestones with you all. I am still in the process of trying to gather everything together, but soon enough, it will be running smoother, and I will be more organized.

I know it’s not much, but trust me when I say that I have been planning for a lot of new content, and maybe a new layout/ theme for my blog. Everything is still in the works, but I do plan to make everything count from here on out. And who knows — by August, I will my finish my research, and have my own custom domain!

Thank you guys so much for your time, and patience… I know I have not been fair, and I know I have a lot to catch up on, and to improve. Also, I would like to thank those who wanted to join the #phamily during my extended leave of absence. I really do appreciate every single one of you~

Until Next Time xoxo

Hello Beautiful!

I felt obligated to take the time to apologize, again, for being completely absent this past month. As most of you may know, I just completed my first year of college, and I was really stressed out. All I could think about was studying and doing well my first year.

Regardless, that’s no excuse to completely leave you guys hanging. But, no worries – as i mentioned on Twitter – I have a ton of projects planned out, and a lot of ideas to the point where I feel like I will implode if I don’t share them with you guys!

As always, if you ever have requests, feel free to let me know in the comments, or on any of my social media platforms. Expect to see me soon~

Until Next Time xoxo
