Refresh (verb):

give new strength or energy to; reinvigorate.

I’ve slacked off.

Almost every day for the past six months, I’ve said to myself, “I think I am going to blog today.” But, I didn’t do it. I’ve experienced one of the worst cases of blogger burnout. It’s not that I didn’t do it because I don’t like to but because I have struggled to stay motivated to do it.

It seems that people on social media only share the good and not so much the bad or the ugly things that life likes to kick at us. No matter how perfect I’d like my Instagram to look … a picture perfect world does not exist.

Today I ask myself: What is my purpose in cyberspace and why would anyone care?

I’ve thought long and hard about this, and my answer is simple. I want to share my photos, videos, and experiences with young adults like me, meet new people, learn and grow.

Since I took a break from cyberspace, I applied to graduate school and struggled with deciding the next best step to fulfilling my life goals. I’ve worked long hours to maintain a reliable reputation at work.

On the flip side, taking a break from blogging has allowed me to enjoy my friends, D.C. and other places, and develop an archive of content I’d like to share with you!

So recently I hit the refresh button and made a new video and added new #Summer16 photos
My advice to you is to live a happy life being a thrill-seeking adult trying to figure it all out.
