Reflecting on 2015


First of all we can all agree I've been a crappy blogger. It wasn't meant to be this way but it's like I jinxed myself by saying I was going to commit. I made than post and my blog because a wasteland. I just completely fell out of love with blogging. I wasn't interested in fashion blogging or vlogging anymore. It's like that Essena Oneill video about social media got to me or something. Over the past two years I had slowly been falling behind on my instagram feed and tumblr dashboard. To contextualise things I was pretty obsessed with instagram. I was one of those people who would scroll back in time until I found a post I had hearted from hours ago. I fell out of love partly because I was working full time so keeping up took a backseat and also it didn't give me the same rush as it used to on instagram. With tumblr it was depressing. I used tumblr as my online newsfeed. That's where I found out about social issues and problems happening around the world but that just got so depressing. Call me shallow but sometimes I just wanna see pretty pictures of the ocean and quotes that inspire me. I believe there should be way to group the blogs you follow and create separate dashboards for these groups. GET ON IT KARP. I type this like David Karp reads my blog or cares about my opinion on his multimillion dollar website.

Looking back on my goals for 2015 I did achieve one: I got a DSLR. I also got a lomography camera in October but that is another matter. Did I reach my goal of reading 15 books in 2015? Nope but I did read 7 books. 7 is better than none so I'm going to pat myself on the back for that. I could've done a lot better but I want to read at least 8 books in 2016! (I would say 16 but I'm trying to not put so much pressure on myself).

Blogging Goals for 2016

1. Keep at it! 2016 will mark two years in the blogging world for insidesai. Active or not I'm going to count it as two years.

2. Try prompts. When experiencing writers block or lack of inspiration maybe giving up that control and using a prompt will help keep me consistent and unleash some creativity. Who knows! 

3. Post at least once a month. Keeping it real, once a month will give me time to create beautiful images or create interesting content.

Life Goals for 2016

1. Get a job! I quit my job two weeks ago and now I'm kind of floating... Part of me wants to find a part time job and give myself time to dedicate to my blog even though it usually doesn't work that way. In the past the blogging job path started with blogging while having a full time job, slowly building up readers, getting sponsorships then transitioning to full time blogging when the income flow was substantial enough. But who says I have to follow the path of those before me?

2. Get modified more. This is dependent on getting a job (a job with chill managers who would allow facial piercings) and my ability to save but I have been itching to get pierced or tattooed for months now. I only got tattooed twice in 2015 and that sucked so I gotta get back to it. I love body modification and I need more love in my life.

3. Shift this weight. I have been trying on and off to get rid of excess weight on my body since I started university. I started university in 2009. *sharp inhale* I know what I need to do, eat healthy food and move my body for 30 minutes a day every day. I think I can get on top of the eating part and if I can integrate daily yoga practice and go to the gym twice a week I can make it.

If you were a reader and I've disappointed you with my lack of posts, I'm sorry. I will try better in 2016. I hope everyone has a great year in 2016.
