Oh yes, a return?! She is back!
(ya know who else is back? The 1975… but more on them later)
The past few months have been consistently busy for me. Never-ending work, went to California twice within a month, being more social than usual, and just living life has got me caught up. I take things day by day, because it’s easier that way. A surge of creativity has struck me recently and I just have the need to make something.
So here I am, creating this blog post.
I heard a song the other week that has contributed to this need to create. The 1975 is an absolute favorite of mine. Every EP and album they’ve released thus far is so good; simply put. Ironically I haven’t listened to them in well over a year for reasons too sap to write on here. However on June 1, the band released “Give Yourself A Try,” and suddenly the fangirl in me reemerged from hiatus.
Prior to the song being released, the band teased it by posting pictures and then the lyrics. I hastily read the lyrics and just knew this song was it. By “it” I mean I felt as though this song was presented at a time where I needed to hear something like it. The title itself gave me those feelings and then delving into it more, the themes of growing life and trying to believe in yourself were all so true to me.
As summer commences, I want to give myself a try more.
It’s not that I haven’t been, but I want to do more. Focusing on myself, my health, my goals, all of those things have been in the forefront for me for a while now. As a new season and month starts, why not take it as an opportunity for growth? I think these next few months are going to be exciting and a bit nerve wracking for me. I’m working towards a few big changes falling into place and I can’t wait to see where it takes me.

The summer is yours for the taking, you got this! (Also didn’t listen to the 1975 for such a long time too)
