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:
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.
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
Today’s post is going to just be a quick update! Continue reading
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
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:
- resume posting on Tuesdays and Saturdays
- obtain a custom domain
- update M.A.N.’s profile
- publish a total of 150 well-written posts/videos
- 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!
Until Next Time xoxo
Now I know I was absent for majority of 2016, but that’s why I decided to share what I plan to improve for the year TWENTY SEVENTEEN! (Trust me when I say there’s a lot of room to improve this year) Continue reading
It’s been a long time, hasn’t it? However, time has truly flown by. This week is my exam week, which means I will be returning to my blog, finally; and, I plan to stay for as long as I can.
For those who did not know, I made an executive decision to take a break from My Authentic Nature, and just focus on school. Although I did not want to make this decision, I was really juggling so much at once in terms of academics, and was having breakdowns left, and right. Furthermore, it was not professional of me to disappear, and reappear without notice; therefore, I decided to just focus on one thing — school (even though some things here and there didn’t work out like I wanted to).
A lot of things have happened since we last spoke, but no worries! Here are a couple of updates:
I got a new laptop!
- If you have been following me for a while, you are probably somewhat familiar with some technical difficulties I had in the past. Long story short, my computer died, and I had to extract my hard drive, and placed it into an external disc. This allows me to access all of my old files, and provides me an extra place for storage!
- As some of you are aware, I do use YouTube on occasion to share some of my content; but, I have decided to use YouTube as a platform for my vlogs.
Although my life is not so glorious right now, I do plan to capture all of the good memories, and hopefully get to share both the big, and small, milestones with you all. I am still in the process of trying to gather everything together, but soon enough, it will be running smoother, and I will be more organized.
I know it’s not much, but trust me when I say that I have been planning for a lot of new content, and maybe a new layout/ theme for my blog. Everything is still in the works, but I do plan to make everything count from here on out. And who knows — by August, I will my finish my research, and have my own custom domain!
Thank you guys so much for your time, and patience… I know I have not been fair, and I know I have a lot to catch up on, and to improve. Also, I would like to thank those who wanted to join the #phamily during my extended leave of absence. I really do appreciate every single one of you~
Until Next Time xoxo
Hello my Loves~
Long time no see! Dang. The last time ya’ll heard from me was August 30. I would like to start off this note and say that I am terribly sorry for disappearing for over a month. I promise, I was not expecting my absence to be this long.
As most of you know, I am currently in my 2nd year of university, as a biology major, and adjusting to the pace has been extremely difficult this year. I am taking a couple of advanced science courses, and for some tragic reason, ALL of my exams are in one week each month.
Along with trying to adjust to my crazy school schedule, I was sick for about 2 weeks from either a sinus infection, or a small cold. To this day, I am still recovering.
To be honest, I was in a creative black hole, and just couldn’t think of any good content for a long while, and it affected me a lot longer than I expected — to the point where I felt like I lost motivation for my blog.
BUT. I promise that I will do better starting today. October is the month were I will turn this around, and make everything work. I can’t guarantee that I’ll be consistent, however, I will try my darn hardest to not disappear like I recently did.
Until Next Time xoxo
