For those who don't know, I have been creating videos on YouTube for the past seven years now. It sounds crazy to even admit but it's nothing compared to some of the more original YouTubers who have been on YouTube for over a decade - wow!

    Making art on YouTube was a way for me to let my guard down for a change and embrace who I really was; a creative person who often felt out of place. The more I dedicated myself to YouTube, the more I developed as a person because it helped me overcome many of my own faults like not investing enough time into getting to know myself.

    After six years of making art videos consistently, I began to desire to make different videos. As much as I loved art, I had grown tired of making art videos because of the lengthy recording process and the time consuming editing. In 2021, when I moved into my first apartment, I knew it was time to make a change.

    I made the decision to record Vlogs for my YouTube channel and to also document my experiences through Blogging. I knew my channel would need time to adjust so I slowly introduced my audience to the fact that I would no longer focus on uploading art videos, and it sure was scary!

    Even though I was much happier uploading Vlogs and trying something that I wanted to do for so long, my views on YouTube dropped drastically; it also didn't help that the world was in a state of crisis. I often worried that I was making a bad decision but I pushed those thoughts to the side and continued doing what made me happy. 

   Now that 2022 is here and I have had a full year to upload Vlogs and create a great amount of articles for this Blog, it has really helped me get closer to myself. Like any change, it can be uncomfortable because you aren't sure what to expect, but I'm excited to see what another year of Vlogging and Blogging has to offer.

First snow!

     I want to be able to share not only my creative side with my audience, but also my life experiences so that I can inspire people from all over the world to be strong when faced with difficulties. I want to also document my life because for the majority of my childhood I felt awkward in my own skin, so documenting my life is now a way where I can open up and find myself.

    I don't claim to know much, but if there is one thing I know for sure, it's that following your passions - no matter how long it may take to see the results - will always result in a happier you. 

Until next time! xoxo - Sarah
