Welcome to my blog! I have written so many different versions of this welcome post, and that’s the best I could come up with but, here it is plain and simple. I’m joining the trend of being a blogger. If that’s cliche, oh well!
This is something I’ve always wanted to do. I’ve been going back and forth with what I wanted my blog to be centered around. I could never settle on what I wanted it to be. Lifestyle? Beauty? Advice? Experiences? A collection of writings? All of these topics have swirled around in my head for years, and finally, I’ve decided to do all of them!
I’m in my early twenties, and I’ve been out of college for over a year — wow that’s weird to see in writing. This probably one of the most frightening and exciting times of my life and I want to document it. I thought I had found my true self in college, but I have only just begun. I wanted to start this blog while I was in college but, it just wasn’t my time yet. I want to be able to look back on memories and experiences while helping others who are riding this crazy roller coaster called “your twenties.”
I’ll be sharing subjects from simple stories of my life experiences to beauty. I’m 23 and still learning to do makeup, I’m an awkward black girl (Thank you, Issa Rae!), and I’m still finding my style when it comes to clothes – don’t tell anyone but, I still wear some items of clothing from high school, oops.
My first passion was writing. I always had a notebook with me, I still do. I would sit under the pew at church and write “novels” ( a.k.a five pages because in my 9-year-old mind I thought that was a novel!). Don’t worry I paid attention in Sunday school. Since I’m going through this new self-discovery phase, I wanted to go back to my first passion.
I’ll also be using another passion. Video. Also known as YouTube. I know everyone does YouTube now but once again… OH WELL! I fell in love with YouTube back in 2006, and I tried to do it a few times once I got in college, but college won that battle. Now it’s time to return to where it all began for me.
So here we go, come along on this journey with me and welcome to the world of Raven Nevar, Finally!!
