Extreme Makeover: Blog Edition Version 2?

So in the past two weeks, I think, my blog has gone through two extreme makeovers. From Caffeine and Ink Pens to Technicolor Dreaming, and then from Technicolor Dreaming to Life Unscripted. At the very beginning, this was going to be a "lifestyle" blog. It was, in hindsight, half success half disaster. Like, the blog got views and follows and stuff, but it was just weird. I didn't like it, not sure why. Then, I decided this was going to be my fashion and beauty blog or something, but I quickly abandoned that idea, mostly because I kind of don't really have a clue about neither fashion nor beauty.

Then I just kind of sat down and wondered what I should do with this thing. I started it, and I wanted to continue it. Everything I was trying just didn't feel very much like me. It all felt forced and awkward and bleh. And then I realized the issue was that I was trying to label my blog in the first place. I seriously don't do well with labels. So I decided I'd just write about me and my social misadventures. Or whatever. I'm always complaining about how nobody ever listens to me , so why not have a nice place to word-vomit on my feelings?

So basically, I'm not going to try to put a name on what this is (except for Life Unscripted, I thought it was cute since I want to be a screenwriter...), I'm just going to write. So, if you have plans to read this... I wish you good luck and I apologize in advance, haha.

Music Monday

In order to get the ball rolling on taking this blog seriously (but not too seriously), I've decided to do a few "themed" days here and there. The first of these is "Music Monday". I think it's a perfectly light-hearted way to keep up with your blog, and share something you love with others. 

Anyways, this week's song is The Way by Ariana Grande Ft. Mac Miller.

I've always adored Ariana Grande. Cat was my favorite character on Victorious, and when I heard her sing for the first time I just about died. Her voice is powerful. My excitement at the fact that she worked with Mac Miller knows no bounds. At one point, I was completely obsessed with him. While I still adore him (even though I feel like his music has lost its touch), he's not my all-time favorite rapper at the moment. The song is catchy and fun, and Ariana hits some notes I could never even dream of attempting. All in all, it's a really good song, and I've been singing it all day. I can't wait for he music video debut tomorrow! Listen to the song below.

Hope you enjoyed the song!

Extreme Makeover: Blog Edition

So I've pretty much completely abandoned this blog in the past month and a half. It mostly had to do with personal issues and a bunch of ridiculous things going on in my life, but I also think I got lazy. On the whole, blogging wasn't exactly number one on my to-do-list. But for some reason, this morning, I set my mind to blogging again. I browsed through Blogspot for some new blogs to follow, read some seriously inspiring posts, and kinda sorta got my muse back. I wanted to blog again.

When the time came to start posting again, I was really turned off by my old layout and almost everything about my blog. While the posts overtly dark (aside from a few seriously pessimistic "facts" about me), it was created at a relatively dark time in my life. It was kind of a glaring reminder of that time. So I set my mind to revamping the entire blog. I got a new url, a new blog title, and made a bunch of fancy pants graphics (I'm far from a web designer though). With my now neat and kinda professional looking blog, I'm ready to start posting for real. Looking forward to sharing my journey with you all.
