December Instagrams

Happy Saturday Loves~

I know that I’m posting super late, but one thing led to another, and here we are. One of my goals for winter break was to try and take the time to up my Instagram game, and I think I’ve been improving.

To track my progress with editing, and my brand’s amount of quality, I’ve decided to share my IG feed each month!

My biggest issue was getting posts up on time, but I discovered Buffer. I promise you this app is a total game changer! Not only does it send me notifications to remind me to post, but it will let me schedule and preplan my captions and edits! Thanks to this useful app, I was able to manage my Instagram feed better.

Follow me @myauthenticnature to get updates on what’s going on in my daily life!

Happy New Years Loves~

I’m going to give 2018 everything I have, with little to no excuses. This past year wasn’t so bad, but it was a year of compromises. I compromised my creativity for my education, and I felt incomplete. I compromised my friendships and college experiences for meaningless work and unnecessary commitments. 2017 had it’s pros and cons, and I feel like I’ve managed, however, I want to thriveContinue reading

Happy December Y’all!

Once again — long time no see. December is finally here, and that means my fall semester is coming to an end. I don’t know how many times I’ve apologized about being absent, and I honestly don’t know when I will stop.

Life has been crazy, and it’s been a constant and vicious cycle. But, I am hoping to get back into the groove of things soon. Here’s what I’ve got planned:

  • Vlogging:
    I think this will be the easiest way to just create content, and it will also help me capture the moments as a college student
  • Writing Shorts:
    Before blogging, I was really big on writing my own short stories and novellas; and recently, I’ve been getting an itch to write and read more. Again, this will help me create content when I’m just in a bloggers funk.
  • Filming:
    Aside from vlogging, I’ve also been craving the need to film Youtube videos again. Currently, I have some content that just needs to be edited, but overall I really want to film and editing something really nice.
  • Designing New Layout: 
    For the longest time ever, I really wanted to create a custom domain for My Authentic Nature, with an elevated look. As you can tell, from the list above, my blog is a place for me to be creative. Therefore, there isn’t just one “theme” or subject content. My Authentic Nature is my digital playground.

Overall, I just really want — and need — to be creative. I am just burnt out from the requirements of my degree and pre-requisites to get into graduate school. I am still figuring out a better posting-schedule, but once I get it finalized, I will let you know. It is likely that I will adjust my schedule based off my school schedule, so it will vary from time to time. Of course, I will keep you updated with everything!

With Love, Joslyn Pham

Hello loves!

I know it’s been a while since you last heard from me, but I can assure you that everything is alright! I am currently on a flight back home from a cousin’s trip, and that was the main reason for my absence as of late.

I also had summer school before this trip, but I’m finished with that too. I didn’t get the grade that I wanted, but I was close! Regardless of my absence, I did manage to get a lot of things done for M.A.N.

I currently am working with a friend for an official logo for our family, as well as a new layout for M.A.N. I am still planning on updating the blog this coming August, so be on the lookout! Once everything happens, I will blast the new launch on social media, as well as notify you with another note.

At the beginning of August, I have another trip, but rest assured, I am catching up on blog posts as we speak! I am still transitioning from my school year hiatus, but I’m working on it, I pinky promise. From now until the start of school, I am dedicated to get myself together, and to spend more time on M.A.N., and my other platforms.

Thank you for all your patience, and support! I love you~

With Love, Joslyn

School Overview: Second Year

To say this past school year went by without any major bumps would probably be the biggest lie in my entire life. This past school year was rough, to the point where it was effecting my health: physically, mentally, and emotionally.

If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you probably noticed that I took a HUGE hiatus this school year; and, I sincerely apologize for doing that to you guys. There were just too many things going on that made me doubt every decision and step I took.

Let’s take it a semester at a time:

Good evening loves~ (or morning…. or afternoon)

I just wanted to pop on, and say that I’ve missed you guys a lot! I’ve got a lot of things to catch up on, as you guys know.

By this Thursday, I will be completely done with all of my exams *internally explodes with happiness*, and I will be able to focus on more pleasant things — like creating content for you guys!

I have a couple ideas for posts lined up, but I would love to incorporate what you guys would like to see/ read/ hear from me.

I hope that by the end of the summer I reach these short-term goals:

  1. resume posting on Tuesdays and Saturdays
  2. obtain a custom domain
  3. update M.A.N.’s profile
  4. publish a total of 150 well-written posts/videos
  5. get to know you guys more

By August, My Authentic Nature will be established for two years, but I feel like I haven’t lead my blog to it’s fullest potential, and I would love to make it up to M.A.N., and you!

I would love to know any kinds of requests that you might have, whether it be: a video idea, a topic to talk on, my views on current events, etc.

So, please leave any requests or suggestions down below, and I will see you Saturday for another blog post!

Bye-Bye~


Until Next Time xoxo
