Sleeker. Simpler. More sophisticated. 

When I started this blog, I was starting my first year of college. My niche was different then; I posted about other things like books, school and less significant fillers. This blog was tailored to fit an audience I had imagined: younger girls, girls in high school, girls who needed another girl to talk to. Obviously it was easy for me to write about those things, because I was going through similar experiences, but as I've gotten older, and as I've grown into a more complex yet strong woman, I've realized that there are some necessary changes that need to be applied.

I left this blog unattended for months because of personal reasons, but during that time, I thought about where I wanted to take this blog. My interests have changed. My passions have become more intense. My vision has definitely become clearer. 

While I enjoyed blogging about those old things, I feel like this blog needs to change with me. If I want this to continue being a blog that's honest and that reflects my personality, I will have to change how I do things. I will continue being the sassy and opinionated girl that opened this blog, but just... better. Improved. More of those things you and I have learned to love.

I will still have my usual musings, advice and essays on life, but I would like to introduce something that I've become interested in: lifestyle. Having just started "lifestyle blogging", I might have some mistakes, but I hope you'll support me as I start this new category of my blog. Trust me, it isn't the usual "lifestyle" blog that you know.

Here's to a better Hey, it's Gail.

There's Always Something

I was a bitch back then. Correction: I was a judgmental, antisocial and outspoken as hell bitch back then. Sorry, I had to make the distinction because I still am a bitch (my definition: someone strong and knows what she wants, and goes after them by being a #girlboss), but nothing like who I was before.

I've made it clear on this blog that I've been through a total bitch phase for, like, most of my life. It wasn't until recently that I managed to break from that behavior and turn into someone more... humane, if I had to put it so bluntly/accurately. 

Stop Gossiping, Girl

I want you to raise your hand if you've never gossiped about someone. If your hand is up, I thank you for being honest, but if it's not, I want you to go and find a mirror and take a good look at yourself. Come on, darling, we've all gossiped about someone at least once in our lives. Now, I want you to raise your hand if you ever felt good talking shit about someone. Again, I thank you for being honest.

Probably one of the greatest lessons I've taught myself in my unimpressive time on Earth is to stop spending too much time invested in the lives of others. Yes, I used to talk shit about other people, especially in school, but that's just something we all get to do at some point in our lives. The important thing is to know that you should stop because honey, it isn't good for you.

On Giving People a Chance

Wednesday, December 28, 2016
For most of my life, I hung out with the same types of people. The calm ones, the smart ones, the "restrained" ones -- basically, people who were like me. With them, I felt safe, and while the time I spent with them was fantastic, I never got the chance to expose myself to different kinds of groups. Because, honestly, I was kind of a judgmental bitch back then. 

I'll admit that I once believed in stereotypes. I would quickly turn my head when I'd hear something about a certain someone, especially when it would contradict my "standards". Looking at it now, I was a pretty frigid bitch when it came to "assessing" people. I'm more than happy that it's not that way anymore.
