When I first started this blog, I knew I wanted to do something with it. Something that I would be passionate about, something that maybe one day would help someone. And that passion fueled me, fueled my YouTube channel, fueled my drive and want for this, but it’s no secret that I’ve been slacking on here lately. I think it was because I wasn’t passionate about it anymore, because I felt like I wasn’t doing anything for anyone.

I also think I am so passionate about so many things at once. That fire tends to burn out or burn very very low, so I’ve been taking a little time, focusing on one thing, and then all of the sudden, as I was looking back on my Instagram (am I the only one who goes back and looks over my photos and captions? No, right?) and I realized that a lot of my recent posts have been about being me, and having no problem sort of saying ”Hey this is me, this is who I am, if you don’t like it, oh well!” And then one of my best friends wrote an essay about how one show sort of changed her perspective (you can read that here!) and how she sort of had a personal self growth in the past couple of weeks (months really) that I have kind of been able to watch happen and it’s been amazing! I’ve known her for about two years now and a year of that we’ve actually spent living in two different cities, but to still be able to see that change from where she was when I first met her to now, it brought that passion of mine to the forefront.
All this goes back to my original passion for this blog — to show people that it is okay to be you, it is okay to be yourself, to be weird or geeky, to love tattoos, to be a fangirl, to love something so much and to be able to express it without fear of getting judged. That’s all I’ve ever wanted to see and to show people.
So here I am: introducing the “Unapologetically Me” series, inspired by that same best friend’s essay and recent instagram post and one of my favorite YouTubers. Every month (or every other week, depending on how well this goes), I want to open up this little space to anyone who wants to write about being unapologetically themselves. I’ll start it off so it doesn’t seem so scary and then Kace volunteered to write one as well. We are opening up our hearts to y’all in hopes that maybe we aren’t so alone in this world because we’re being unapologetically us and we don’t care who knows it.
