Blogging can feel fake to me sometimes so I wanted to borrow Kaelah Bee's idea and write some posts periodically without that stereotypical blogger filter. Real talk (anyone get the reference?) will be rambly and unfiltered and will completely reflect my feelings on various issues. Here it goes!
Thought 1: I admit to being a but indecisive about this blog. I have struggled to update it regularly because of my workload with school and have attempted to lure myself here with blog makeovers and changing the name (which worked temporarily). The thing is, I'm in love with the concept of a blog. I love instagram which is essentially a mini blog (much easier to update quickly and on the go) but the concept remains the same. I cherish the records of life and I know I will look back on these posts lovingly one day, but as of now I struggle to find the motivation to post. Recently I grappled with the idea on whether or not to stop writing here but a lovely reader (hey Veralynn!) sent me the sweetest email that reminded me why I love to document my time as a nursing student. Thank you Veralynn!
Thought 2: Regarding the name of this blog. Some of you may remember that I changed the name here from The Antique Pearl to Dotti Dee to match my IG name a few months ago. Everytime I post here though I think about that name and I realize that even though I love it on IG I still feel like it's not a good fit for this space. I may be changing things around here soon in terms of the name (or I may learn to love it) but to be honest (awesome readers) I'm afraid of being obnoxious with all these switches.
Thanks for reading this slightly neglected space week after week. You guys make my day with every comment ♥
