Recent Rambles: A blogging crisis

                    So after 9 months of blogging, I have finally reached 100 posts, of which this is the one hundredth and this really crazy when I think about it because that so many posts. I started this, not even knowing where it would go and now we are here. It is quite mind blowing. 

          The thing about this is I don't actually know if I like a lot of stuff on my blog. I mean sure right now what my favourite song is on a Thursday or the top 5 books that I was spoiled for are fun but are they actually the stuff that when I look back in five years time and go, "Wow I'm am making some good content." Short answer no. I feel like memes - e.g. Top Ten Tuesday or Top 5 Wednesday- are good for so long, they are great for you to build and grow your blog but they are not the best content in the world. I am not criticising anyone who does memes because let's face it I do them. I do them because they are quick and easy and they can be done in like 20 minutes and for a Uni student, they are great but are they really what I want to create? Not really... 

        At the beginning of the year, I said to myself that I want to give myself more freedom to create what I wanted but I guess this has not happened. At all in fact. OK, so I lie because my A-Z of YA Mental Health books is something that I have wanted to do for a long time and am so proud of but for a lot of my content not really. 

        I guess what I am trying to say is that I want to make content that I care about and I like writing and even if this means that I don't post as often as before then that is OK because as long as I am creating stuff that I care is all that matters. 

        I think that if there are still topics that I care about then I will still do the memes but this may not be every week. 

I hope you continue with me on this blogging journey with me. 

See you soon, 

Amy

PS I am still going to be talking about books! You don't have to worry about that.

Turning 21?

You see I have put this blog post for such a long time but tomorrow the inevitable will happen and I will turn 21. I don't know why I decided to add and to keep a question mark in the title because it's not like it is going to happen it will but maybe it's because I just don't feel like it. Queue all the age is nothing but a number talk but I  guess that this is not what this blog post is going to be about. 

Being 21 has always been the number that I have aspired to, the one that has been in the back of my mind for the longest time. When I was 18, I knew that at 21 I would be in my final year of university, which I am, and that I would graduate this year and on to the future. But am I right?

I feel like so much has changed it want this magic number must be, given the bears with keys in their hands as if a sign that this would be the time that we would get keys of our own and would gain so much independent. But this is it, it is just a dream. 

That's not going to happe…
