brb // atypicalnarrative is on hiatus until winter 2017

Hello everyone!

This is just a quick announcement for those who don’t follow me on my various social media accounts that atypicalnarrative will be going on hiatus for the rest of the summer/fall. 

I won’t lie, I’m somewhat sad I’m already taking an extended break as this blog has only been live for four months, but it really is the best decision for me at this point in time. Between saying goodbye to my best friend, getting a new three-month old pup, planning for my upcoming wedding, having my out-of-state nephew visit for two weeks, and all the other nonsense life is throwing my way, I just don’t have the time or energy to fully commit to this blog. And though this is just a hobby, it’s one I don’t like to half-ass, so no content over shit content is key.

But don’t fear, I’ll be around! I will still be producing content for the blog during this break (I just won’t be publishing it until I’m back) and remaining active on my Twitter and personal Instagram accounts. This community is too good to abandon completely so if you still want to chat, don’t hesitate to say hi.

In the meantime, I hope you have a lovely summer/fall and I look forward to entertaining you with my nonsense content once again in a couple of months. Take care!

Welcome to atypicalnarrative

Well hello there! Welcome to atypicalnarrative, my (life + stories + art) blog. I’m excited to launch this personal creative endeavor with you and I hope after reading this little introduction you’ll be persuaded to stick around.

But wait, haven’t we seen you before?

Yes! Though this blog is brand new, I’ve been blogging for many, many years. Most recently, I made a home within the book blogging community at Oh, the Books!, a joint effort with one of my favorite friends who is still kicking ass and taking names. (I definitely recommend you stop over and say hi!)

While I loved my time blogging at Oh, the Books! with Kelley, I ultimately caved into my own spiral of self-destruction as I failed to meet the high blogging standards I had set for myself. While I originally planned on taking a hiatus and returning to Kelley’s side, I decided after careful consideration a fresh start was necessary. (Luckily for me, Kelley didn’t take this personally. She’s the best.) Continue reading “Welcome to atypicalnarrative”
