Hey 🙂 My name is Izzy and I guess this is my blog now!
Well welcome! This blog is more for me to use to grow and expand as a person. I’ve already got a very bubbly and outgoing personality, but sometimes it’s easier to express yourself when you’re not face-to-face with someone else.
I’m not sure where to start, so I’ll guess I’ll just start from the beginning!
I was born in Newport Beach, california, and I was raised alongside my younger brother by my parents until my sister was born in 2013 and became a part of the family.
We lived about thirty minutes outside of the city in a town called Lafayette that I adored. To me, it was your picture perfect town; a local sushi place, Noah’s Bagels, several phenomenal restaurants and family-owned business, and of course, my home.
When I was eleven, my family moved across the country to North Carolina. While I was excited to live near my aunts and cousins, I wasn’t excited to leave behind the friends I had, the barn and horses I adored, and, above all, the place I had grown up. Although I had traveled out east before, and even spent several weeks at a sleepaway camp I love, I didn’t want anything to change permanently.
Easily, the hardest thing about moving was finding friends. Although I am loud and expressive, no one seemed to have the same energy, and I immediately felt out of place. My mom and I agreed; we just wanted to go back to the familiarity of home.
If there’s one thing I’ve learned about starting over somewhere new is this; you won’t feel alone forever. You have to focus on the positives instead of the negative; you will find friends that have similar interests and you will adapt. If I could go back and do it all over again, I’d tell myself that the worst parts are behind me, and that I will be okay.
This blog, for me, is a place where I can reflect who I am just because I can. Every post will be about something I enjoy, whether that be a collection of tv shows, music, food, traveling, friends, horses, etc.
Personally, I don’t care anymore what people think of me. Even if there are days where I feel like I stand out too much, or that maybe someone is right, maybe I’m weird or annoying, I’ve learned that I shouldn’t look at someone else’s opinion too deeply; for every person trying to tear me down, there’s at least one person building me up.
If there’s only one thing you take away from this blog, let it be how to live as your best self 🖤 You can always try to fake-it-till-you-make-it, but trust me; life is so much more beautiful when you’re living it the way you want to.
