Read all of my musings of the world, unedited.
If you’ve been following along with the blog for the past few weeks, you know I’ve had a pretty rough time. School work, unsatisfactory relationships, toxic friendships, the impending doom of being underemployed... the list goes on. I have been VERY gloom and doom on here as of late.
Well, that all stops today.
All of the bad friends, boys who would get into my head, self doubt, regret, pain, suffering, nights spent crying into my pillow (and there were a few), all of it - it ends here.
There are roughly one billion proverbial phrases and cliches about silver linings and greener grass and all the jazz. You know them all, they are ingrained in us throughout our lives. Quite frankly, I think I have spent quite enough time feeling sorry for myself, don’t you?
Now, just because I’m trying to turn over a new leaf of positivity, that doesn’t mean there won’t be dark days/hard times (name that Drake lyric). But from here on, I will make a concerted effort not to air my dirty laundry on this page. I have tried to avoid that all along, but today starts a new era on the site known as brianatrifiro.weebly.com (cringe at the weebly part, I know I know).
To celebrate some newfound light and sunshine, you will notice this page undergo some changes and rebranding. Maybe (just maybe) I’ll actually take the plunge and purchase that domain name I’ve been eyeing.
You see, it has been so easy for me to become enmeshed in this pity party of one. It’s easy for me to feel left behind, or lost, or forgotten. I legitimately feel 10 steps behind everyone else lately. I am still single, living at home, underemployed, no career path in sight, and a crumbling social life. I spend more weekend nights in my pjs watching One Tree Hill with my mom than I should admit. While I recognize that these are not shackles around my hands and feet, these “obstacles” often feel insurmountable.
Maybe it’s an epiphany, maybe it’s the book I’m reading - but I am putting 100% of my time, effort and heart into facing the things that hurt me. And hopefully, fixing them too.
Also, this page will be a lot less venting, and a lot more of the lifestyle content that a lot of you have actually asked for! Book reviews, recipes (lol totally kidding I don’t know how to cook), the 411 on what I’m currently binge-watching (one tree hill duh, trying to fill a riverdale sized hole in my heart!!!). From time to time, I’ll tell stories too. Because I still want this page to be personal. I still want it to be me.
I figure that while I’m playing catch up, I might as well ENJOY the time I am lucky to be given each and every day. STAY TUNED for more branding, a NEW NAME (oohs and ahs), graphics and some fun surprises along the way.
So, goodbye to the doom and gloom of blog posts past. Hello to the future of blogging, and until next time,
