New Year, New Site, New…Everything?

Hello my fellow internet bloggers and readers. I decided it is high time I blogged once more. It has been many, many years since I have owned or operated a site. I have missed it. I have missed the companionship I have found in other bloggers, and many other aspects of being a part of the site community.  I can honestly say, it is very good to be back, and I do hope to forge new friendships in this endavour as well as give myself a bit of stress relief in sharing my day to day life, opinions, and experiences.

Just a bit about me, as I have yet to create an “About Me” page, which I will be getting to within the next couple of days. My name is Shannon, but I choose to go by Shanae. I am 26(on the 29th of this month) years old, and currently reside in the southern USA, however, it seems as if I might be moving to another region soon. More on that if it should come to pass. I am studying an undergraduate degree in computer science, and hopefully will be concentrating in software development. I have a 3 year old daughter, and am married to a pretty awesome guy. I’ve been through many hardships in my life, but can honestly say that they really have made me a better person despite sucking beyond all reason.

I’m a pretty “girly girl”, but also can get my hands dirty if I must. I grew up as an equestrian, and have had the privilage to ride both english and western, though that part of my life has been put on hold for many years, as, well, life happened. It’s something I will eventually revisit as soon as I am able. I’ve become quite the console gamer in my adult years, though I’ve stuck to mostly xbox. Lately, I have been venturing into the world on computer gaming/MMORPG…time sucking hobby, that one is. ^__^ I plan to travel within the next year or two, and the places I would like to visit first are the United Kingdom, Japan and South Korea. I love learning about new cultures and customs as well, and always keep an open mind of others.

I also occasionally enjoy creating wallpapers, and offering them to the public when I have time. Anyone is welcome to them, and they may be found on my deviantArt account, which there is a link to in my sidebar =3 You will notice over the next week or two that I will be attempting to add some content for my readers to the site. Nothing special, but more or less a “thank you” for stopping by. I will also give my own opinions and views on any products I try that I feel I must share with everyone. Don’t worry! I won’t spam my blog with a bunch of reviews of random shit.

I will also be posting beauty tips, some style tricks, and many other things. After all this IS my personal blog, but I want to be able to improve the lives of other women as well. If I can help jsut one woman out there with confidence in who she is, no matter her size, shape, color, creed or economic background, I’ll be happy. I know what it’s like to be your worst critic.

  1. Hey Shanae, welcome back to blogging! 🙂 Happy early birthday as well! I think in this day and age it’s the perfect time to start a blog, and I look forward to more of your posts too (I added you to my feed reader!). I love making friends online and of course thought I’d pay back a visit after you commented on my blog. I also wanted to thank you for your comment on my blog – I replied to it on my blog, I am not sure if you got an email about the reply, but feel free to visit the post you commented on to see it. ❤️

    I love learning about new cultures as well. You can learn so much from what people around the world experience (another reason why making friends through blogging is great). I love travelling and getting to know how other people live their lives.

    As for being a girly girl, I am into fashion and doing my nails – I guess we will both like each other’s fashion/style posts! – but not so much into makeup. I also tend to like more “boyish” things like games and adventure.

    Women are definitely a little harsh on themselves especially when it comes to appearance. I personally struggled with body image until recently when I started going to the gym and not just feeling great for losing some weight, but also feeling mentally and physically strong. It is so important for us to feel comfortable in our own skin 🙂

    1. Thank you! I’ll definitely be reading your blog a lot. I’m just now getting into makeup honestly. I’ve learned a lot so far, but still by no means a pro at it! I’ve been a “boyish” girl most of my life. It’s definitely a recent development that I’ve become overly feminine! Don’t get my wrong, I’ll still go out and be “one of the guys” when offered xD

      I’ve always struggled with my own body image. Despite eating healthy and having mostly healthy living habits, I’ve always been overweight to some extent, especially after having a kiddo. I gained over 100 lbs during those 8 months, and still have yet to even get half that off. I’m always self-conscious, but if I’ve learned one thing from other women it’s that I’m horribly critical of myself and as long as I am being healthy, being a bit “fluffy” isn’t the worst thing in the world. I made the mistake of refusing to eat to lose weight, so basically once I started eating again I doubled what had come off. Now I’m doing it the right way, and though it’s taking a while I HAVE noticed a difference this month.
