Needed to post some updated pics lol so here’s some from a month ago...close enough. The rest of this is a long ass update abt my life since I’ve been away, and why it was necessary. So.. stop reading here if u don’t care 😅 OKKK SO after having issues uploading my return vid, I had so much panic over it, which made me realize I was still jumping the gun on coming back, not to mention a diagnosis of sepsis (which I’ve finally almost beat now). I decided to spend time completely offline away from my identity on social media. No ig or twitter or even TEXTING ppl. I put away my phone entirely. It helped me realize how tied to social media & other peoples opinion of me I really was. I’m not quite ready to start uploading again but I’m getting so close. I’ve begun plans to get new cages for every single reptile, most being around 120 gallons or more. I’ve gotten really into resin work and acrylic pour painting- and art in general. Art has been a missing piece in helping me battle addiction, it’s been an outlet I’ve needed badly. On another note, my red hair is actually changing colors this week & it’s grown sm💖 I’m blessed to have been given this platform. it definitely went haywire for yrs as I struggled to find myself. But I’m confident I can create things I love & am proud to share going forward. Ps, all animal babies are doing great ❤️ This time entirely offline was key in stopping the cycle of trying to handle my platform & continually failing. Lastly, & most importantly, I’ve never wanted to make my platform political, fearing I’d “lose” part of my following & start arguments. but after the last 4 years, I’m happy to lose anyone offended by my political views. I’m privileged to even have the choice to voice my views or not. So, that being said, I share your tears of happiness that Biden and Kamala are the President and Vice President elect ❤️ I went out & voted, & am so proud my vote went towards something so vitally important. I hope 2021 is a year of healing & kindness in our country, & that the voices silenced the last four years are heard loudly going forward. I miss you all. Love you all. Keep taking everything one day at a time. One breath at a time.
