Shit Happens

25 January, 2018

I can't believe it's been a full 5 years since I've ventured into the dark corner of the internet that is the blogger.com CMS.

A lot has changed since I last wrote - first and foremost,  I'm hanging on to my last year as a 20-something for dear life! Career-wise, I'm now 5 years into the Social Media/Online Content game, a full-on digital "professional", ironically enough during this time my hopes of becoming a blogger have gone down the drain.  I've travelled and travelled and travelled, discovering new parts of America, finally adding a new continent to the hit list with a 2016 visit to Singapore while making repeat visits to what has become one of my new favourite places (cough, cough Lagos - I've had more visits there than I care to admit).

If I had to sum up the last half-decade in two words they would self-discovery and disruption. I've gone through the normal shit you go through in your mid to late 20s and watched the world around me both near and far change in ways I could never imagine.

However one thing that has been at the back of my mind through all of this has been this little old blog of mine, unbeknownst to me at the time it was a much-needed creative outlet, something that I would never have thought I would have need after entering a job in the creative field but probably needed more than ever.

So I stepped into 2018 with one word on my mind - change. I have no idea what this change is going to be - ok that's a lie, I know what I want to happen but no idea how I'm going to do but the thought of going in blind excites me.
And if it all goes wrong, it gives me a chance to embody my new motto - shit happens!
