Is this thing on?

Do I even remember how to blog?
It's been a FULL YEAR since my last post.
I never intended it to go so long.

I bought (yes BOUGHT with money....okay it was only $6 but still!) a theme to totally revamp my site.
I have been brainstorming a new blog name for OVER a year now.
Clearly the desire is there.

I WANT to blog. There are tons of things I want to talk about.

What I've been up to. Makeup. Politics. Etc!

Sometimes depression takes all motivation out of you.
And sometimes you're so hung up on revamping your blog that you can't see beyond  the fact that you hate your blog name and need a name change STAT.

And then you get overwhelmed with how difficult it is to actually revamp your blog from top to bottom.


I want to do it though. By the end of summer vacation (yeah, more on that later!) I WILL have this blog up and running again.
It's my only goal haha

For now...I leave for seattle in 8 days and I couldn't be more excited.

More to come.

Wondering if I should abandon my pen name and embrace my real name in this online space. We will see.

Where have I been?

Let's not pretend you even noticed I was gone ;)

But the disappointing fact is that I have been away for quite a while!

I won't waste time giving you all my reasons & excuses. They aren't that great anyway. Pretty run of the mill and boring!

But I really, really want to get back into it. I have been MADDENINGLY behind on blog reading so that takes away from the motivation for blog posting.
But it's time to say screw it and just dive right in again.
If I keep waiting for "the right time"- I may never  come back!

Another reason I have been hesitant to start again is because I really want to change the name of my blog. So if I suddenly switch it up on you- don't say I didn't warn you!
*starts singing Taylor Swift in my head*

Anyway, I'm back bitches!
Well, almost.
I have to wait for my laptop to get out of the shop (I told you the reasons were boring!)
But once that happens- I am really not holding back anymore.

Blogging makes me happy, and I want to be happy again. So I hope I still have at least a few readers out there!

See you soon!
Ember aka Amber aka Nicole......have I mentioned I am having an identity crisis??
(I currently use a pen name and am considering doing away with that when I rebrand my blog- what do you think?)
