Adulting

Hey guys—sorry for the long posting hiatus. Admittedly, it’s been a while since I found myself behind a screen typing a post, and for that, I apologize. I would like to blog more frequently, but lately, I’ve been at sort of a block.

I started this blog two years ago, during the summer between junior and senior year of high school. It started off with a variety of purposes. One—to help me along as I found my way back to making my faith strong again, after a particularly shaky period that lasted from 9th grade through 10th. Two—I hoped that it would encourage others and help them along in their own walks, as I shared what I’ve learned so far. Since then, this blog has evolved a great deal, and I’ve made a great number of friends in the Christian-blog-o-sphere.

Nonetheless, as I’m navigating college and adult life, I suppose I’m trying to figure out where to bring this blog next. In the past, I’ve always mostly gleaned from my life and what I’ve seen and heard around me. Lately, things have been a little slow (Yet, oddly still busy—the joys of adult life…), which is why I’ve had trouble finding things to blog about lately. I suppose I’m going through a bit of a transitional period, as I try to figure out what adulting looks like. I plan to maintain this blog for at least a couple more years, but I’m sure I’ll need grace for slow periods like these. College is a bit of an awkward period of life, and slowly, I’m trying to discover how to mature my writing voice while staying true to my blog’s purpose.

The good thing is, we’re all in this together. Some of you here may be close to my age. Others of you may be older or younger. Regardless of our age, we’re here to encourage each other, and on some level we all deal with some of the same trials—especially as Christians.

I can honestly say that I’m thankful for where God has taken me and I trust that He has plans for my future. Right now, it’s still a little blurry though, and because I believe in the power of transparency, I felt led to share this with you.

On the bright side, I would like to do more vlogs in the future, and hopefully, find more nuggets of thoughts from my brain to share with you soon. I look forward to seeing where God takes this in the next couple of years and I pray that you journey along with me.

Until then, I hope to see you back here regularly for more quirky, awesome discussion and blog posts.😉

  1. Courtney, my name is Byron (obviously). I too am an adult (21) and my main focus is sports related items (as you may see on my site, should you decide to visit it). I have decided to include writing blogs about places I’ve hiked and what I thought about them. I actually just went on one Sunday and I have yet to write about it. If you want ideas, feel free to ask. 🙂

    1. Thanks bserfling! I doubt I’d be able to do sports topics justice considering I don’t really keep up with them, but I’ll definitely check out your blog! And suggestions are always appreciated.🙂

      1. No problem. Sorry about the previous other four comments. I downloaded the wordpress app yesterday and the comments weren’t showing up. I have yet to figure out how to remove them. 🙂

  2. Courtney, I too am an adult (21). I am currently writing about sports, especially football. I am going to include places I have hiked and reflect on them. I will blog the one I went on Sunday in a little bit. 🙂

  3. I’m 21 and I write about sports, with a focus on football. I am going to include places I have hiked and reflecting on them in the blogs I share. I’ll blog about my most recent one in a little bit.

  4. Dearest Courtney! Great honesty in this post. The best part of it is that it speaks the thoughts of many people- me inclusive. Always remember that it’s always going to get better- keep hope alive. We’ll talk more via DM. We all love you and can’t wait for you to bounce back! xx
