I’m baaaaaaaaaaaack. And better than ever! Well, that’s debatable.
I can honestly say that having a break from my most important creative pursuit was perfect for me to get myself together and reevaluate what I want SideChick to be and become. When I started SideChick over a year ago, I felt that my life was becoming one dimensional. That I wasn’t pouring my creative energy into anything. I also used it as a way to cope and heal and learn to love myself again. A little corner of the internet where I could go to throw all of my feels into. I didn’t think anyone would read it. I had absolutely zero expectations for it. And then it blossomed into this. It became a place where my real life friends and people I have and might never meet could collide.
You are the reason I am here. You gave my words meaning in a way only you could do. Thank you for allowing me this space. Thank you for bearing with me through this break. I needed it.
As with any creative pursuit, it becomes like a child to you eventually. SideChick is my baby. I have so many grand visions for what it can become, and no instruction manual on how to get it there. I’m just making it up as I go. Faking it until I make it.
Over the next few months SideChick is going to be getting a makeover. So many elements of my life have changed in the past year that I feel my tiny corner of the internet should too. It’s time for a bit of a facelift. For real this time.
SideChick is going to evolve as I do. But please realize that as SideChick has always been, it is a side project in my life amongst many others. As a parent does, I need to give equal attention to all of my kids, or at least try to. I am a full time grad student, I have a full time job, I’m in a relationship, and I need social time, just as I need time to myself (#introvertlife).
SideChick 2.0 will offer some of the same things it did before, but there will also be some changes. Posts will be fewer and further between, but you can expect better content and some other modes of creativity for posts.
Just know, it’s going to be dope.
Thank you for the patience. Thank you for the love. Thank you for the support.
