To be honest, I don’t know what to do here anymore. I’ve started this in my head about a thousand times and today it just felt right. What used to make me tick, fashion must haves, the bombest food, hot men, doesn’t necessarily do it for me anymore (okay, food and men are still relevant and always will be!) but my content has evolved just as I have. I used to feel a need to tell you everything I knew, I used to feel a need to share my opinions and thoughts, now fast forward a handful of years later – I’ve grown even more comfortable and deeper into my skin, and that intense desire to share, share, share all the time no longer exists. From my point of view, Tumblr, Instagram (My name is Vicky, and I am an IG addict), and Facebook has caused this oversaturation of sharing that most of the time, holds no substance. It’s the constant sharing of fake fluff that has me uninterested and disconnected. Everyone is so…lame haha! Well except you. We like you.
There are days when I want to write so badly about relationships, Instragram etiquette, or the annoying things people do – and I will do that, when the moment calls for it. But the daily timed posts are stopping as of now. So yes, that’s correct – Vickyloves isn’t dead, but it’s taking a turn for the better – back to what made me start it in the beginning – the writing. Instead of chasing the next big thing to write about, I’ll be pulling content from my life. So expect a post of 2 about eating Oreos off my belly. I kid I kid.
What got me to this point, you ask? (yes, you asked). My happiness, my growth! I didn’t like writing with an agenda, it stopped flowing freely a few months back and my content began to feel forced. It just wasn’t fun, the fashion events were always awkward (everyone is a cow but the goodie bags were my favorite!), and I hated ruining other people’s dinners with my camera flash haha (for all the food photos I’ve taken, FML). It was all … blah.
My daily goal of being happy and true to myself outweighs all – because when those first 2 things are running on full, it lets me love that much more. And you already know, I love to love! It really brings out the best in all I do (that was me tooting my own horn, did you hear it!?).
This used to be an outlet for the younger Veeezy, somewhere to speak my mind and share my stories, it truly was such a fun time for me! Seriously, the best part of it all was having people connecting with my material. The “omg, that’s so funny – I sooo feel you” type of comments were my favorite, it made me feel like I was doing something right. And folks, I’m going to do right by you and not be some annoying blogger that just reposts the fuck out of everyone else’s post and then pretend they experienced it. oh no, oh no.. we gon’ get gully. (that’s slang for “real” for those that grew outside of East Van.)
So to wrap it up, I just wanted to say thank you for being here – it really means a lot. It would mean a lot more to me if you stayed for Vickyloves 2.0 (but you don’t have to, but I think you should… hehe). And for those who don’t want Vickyloves to change – build a bridge, and get over it!!! *insert my chicken head and finger waving.
I guess I haven’t changed that much. I love you!
See you here in a little while.
**shit this is my 999th post, meaning my next post as Vickyloves 2.0 will be my 1000th. How crackhead coincidental cray is that? Totes meant to be.
