Wow. So I'm sorry. I know this will sound absolutely cliche, but I'm sorry that I have been leaving my page so vacant these days. I guess I got out of my book cycle. In laymans terms, I go through cycles in which I am OBSESSED with things. Reading is usually one of those cycles. It always comes back, as it is one of my favorite things, but time to time, I just stop. I just stop reading. I don't know why or even how this happens, but thats just me.
I hope I can get back into reading again very soon. But I need to give a very special shoutout!
I got a notification that you had written on one of my posts. So I went to the page and I felt like I kind of rediscovered it! So thank you Liviania for helping me return to my blog. It means a lot to me!
Anyway, I'm going through some changes in my life.
My grandma, or as we called her, "Granny," passed away recently. We finally sold her condo and we were cleaning it out yesterday. In her house I found a ton of old stuff and trust me, I'm crazyyy nostalgic. So I'm going crazy and looking through all this stuff and I get to her jewelry. She has some kind of useless stuff, but also some very beautiful and valuable pieces. I find this pretty sapphire necklace and earrings and my mom points out that I could have them. But me being the teenager that I am says,
"Nahh, I don't wear stuff like that."
My mom replies, well you could wear it to a formal or something. My teenager self says, "No, I wouldn't wear it." It is at this point that my mom says something that totally flips me upside-down. She says,
"Emily, look at all this *sweeping her arms out*. You need to take advantage of the things you have and use them before your time is out. Your grandmother saved things and never had the chance to use them. Don't let what you have go to waste."
I'm a selfish, ungrateful brat aren't I? I sit around and watch television all day. I'm putting my family and myself to shame. Well, no more, the new Emily is here!
So I am going to take advantage of my multitudes of resources. And live life like there is no tomorrow (:
