I'm Areeba and I blog

Almost 2 years ago, I created this blog. I had no idea what I was going to write or do with my online space. I kept writing, writing and now whenever I look at my old posts, I feel a little bit embarrassing + funny. Like, really dude? I used to write like that? But it's totally fine. In those (almost) 2 years, I ran out of ideas, I cried over getting less response to a post, I had an ugly internet, I had no motivation to write but me and this blog survived. We're still here and second blogaversary is near. I was planning to write something very special for my blog on its second birthday but honestly, I have no idea. Last 3 days for me were no-internet-for-you-babe kinda days so I thought what I'm going to do with my baby blog. And I think I've decided, I won't stop doing what I'm doing. Blogging is simply a thing I LOVE to do, so I'll keep up with it no matter what's up. I know there are a few people who read me and that's enough. I do think about my blog. I think of having a successful blog, a pretty blog that I love, a blog that will make people's day, a blog that spreads a smile on my face and a blog to keep memories. That IS why I blog. And I'm proud to say that I'm Areeba and I blog.

So here we are, a little bit emotional and a little bit of motivated. Let's do blog more often and stay happy. And there are a few things I want to share with you all right now. I am SO excited for my college, let's hope it turns our more fun than high school. I need SO many tips how-to's and do-and-don'ts for college because I'd just be a noob for that big-girl-goes-college world.

There's a line I found from my old journal and I LOVE it, it says "My name is Areeba and I am made of thousands of stars", isn't that simply so lovely?

I saw this quote on Pinterest and fell in love with it. And luckily took this perfect photograph too. She.

  14. Hi Areeba! I know exactly how you feel about blogging, sometimes it can be so hard to stay motivated especially when life seems to throw the whole lemon tree at you, haha. Congratulations on your 2nd blogaversary and on starting college soon!
    I did a short series on preparing for college, not all the typical bits, but a bit more practical from what I've experienced. I hope that it can help you. Make the most of college, because you can't relive it!
