Yes yes, I know what you’re all saying ‘here’s Shannon with her once in a blue moon blog post before she disappears again’ - well, do you know what? Yes it might be, but hear me out and then we’ll see how it goes.
Back in March this year, I was so excited to revamp my website and make my blog a focus point. It’s literally always been a dream of mine to have a successful blog. I was very much set on posting every other week and starting to build that ‘dream blog’. Alas, life got in the way… or, actually, not so much as it didn’t get in the way, I didn’t have a lot going on… at all. I was working a job I didn’t like, which was dramatically affecting my social life, so I couldn’t go out with my friends, I couldn’t date, I couldn’t go to gigs. I’d taken a break from making music and because music had been such a huge part of my life for as long as I can remember, that felt incredibly strange. Amongst and due to all of this I felt incredibly lost, unmotivated and quite frankly I didn’t have a creative bone in my body.
You’ll notice I’m writing in the past tense, supposedly incorrect, as I am still doing all of these things (apart from the creativity, that’s starting to make its way through again) BUT, things are about to change, for the better I feel. I’m going to be leaving London and moving to Liverpool, this is something I have been fighting against for a loooong time now, because I absolutely LOVE London and the life I’ve made here. Now, I’ve come to the decision, it feels absolutely perfect and I literally can’t wait to get there, on a pros and cons list between Liverpool and London, Liverpool was a ridiculously loud winner. This was something I had never realised until very recently. The reason I am telling you all of this, is partly because I want this blog to be like my diary, I want it to be an open book of my life, but also because I want to take you on this journey of moving with me. Of moving to a new city where I don’t know many people, of leaving my friends and the last 10 years of my life behind, of living alone for the first time (who knows this could become a home decor blog, because let me tell you I can’t WAIT to decorate my first solo home).
This is quite possibly the biggest life change I will have been through in my nearly 30 years, it feels so much more momentous than leaving home. In relation to me documenting on this blog, I’m not going to tie myself to any schedules, any specific topics, I’m literally going to write what I want, when I want. This could be 3 times a week or once a month. Let me tell you though, in this next month, I have ALOT to look forward to, so keep a check over here!
Well, I’ll be honest, I’m absolutely terrified for what’s to come but I’m also incredibly excited for this change, this new chapter, this fresh start. The future for me is sooo unfamiliar right now but that feels so exhilarating. I have a really, really good feeling. Who’s ready to come on a rollercoaster of a ride with me?!!
GREAT! See ya soon!
All my love and magic
