Instagram Numbers Getting Me Down + 5 Facts About Me
Helllllllo. So, there are around 1500 of you guys following me on instagram at this moment in time. It’s no secret that I did not grow overnight, obviously…if you look at my post number next to my follower number you will quickly see that I have a little over two followers for every post and, not gunna lie, this messed me up for quite a while.
I continued to see people with ever 10,000 people saying “I’ve stuck with it consistently for a year and this is where I am” and I was just like…I have too (actually, longer than that) and it feels like more people unfollow me than actually do and am I writing and creating for no one to actually like or even look at any of it?
But honestly, that’s bs because I have gotten to make connections with actual people and now I have relationships with people all across the U.S. because I am small and I was able to. And every time I am inches away from giving up someone reaches out, I find inspiration somewhere or I get that “eff it” motivation that’s like “YOU control this…this is one of the only place that YOU get to make 100% of the creative decisions and frankly, you can control how you let this make you feel” and honestly, I think that’s damn cool that I have a space that’s MY creation that has probably impacted at least one person.
Anyways, I am NOT wanting to rant-complain on this post! This IS a big milestone for me. I am so happy with my little corner of the internet and I want to thank you for following especially if you take the time to read what I write. That is seriously SO special to me and everytime someone says they even read something of mine I’m like mind-blown. That’s rewarding.
okay, so here are some facts so we can get to know each other even better! If you’ve made it this far be sure to leave one about yourself in the comments below because I’m nosey!
I am graduating with a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts with a degree in Theatre with an emphasis in acting and directing in December (which is a semester early)! Although I have been taking dance classes steadily since under 2, my theatre interest started quite late…I was a junior in high school! I did have a bit of a learning curve jumping into this degree full throttle, but I’m hooked (and frankly, basically caught up (; )
I’m a huge foodie, and although my favorites change weekly, I will ALWAYS love tortillas, croissants, chips and dip and fresh fish!
I think I have the biggest variety when it comes to music. I love just about everything and am constantly impressing people with just how many songs I know the words to. Something that will always be in my favorites though? Prince. Obsessed.
My boyfriend and I (who actually hit seven months yesterday!) are long distance, and at this point have been for over half of our relationship! It can be trying at times, but we’ve grown a lot and it’s forced us to be amazing communicators, which I love!
I am HYPER competitive and basically beg people to constantly play board games with me all while I shake the entire time because I hate to lose. My entire family loves to play them and we can hardly go to a family event without staying up all night to play.
