well, it’s been a while… but I’m back!

Heyyy there! (ayy I’m still at it with the cringy intros) Welcome (back) to Sparks of Ara! You may not remember me (who does?) since I haven’t posted on here in almost 6 months… and looking back at the most recent posts I’m cringing so hard… I have definitely changed quite a bit since my last post, so I guess I’ll recap where I’ve been, what’s changed, and what’s up for the blog! Which will hopefully start up again! I’m also very sorry for unexpectedly leaving with no notice (that seems to be a trend for me)

So, let’s start with me? (not the most exciting or wanted topic but that’s okay) (also there may be a bit of self loathing on here but I’ll try not to because I don’t think anyone will want to read that lol) (and I have a thing with parenthesis and saying “and”) I’ve just finished my freshman year of high school, which is exciting! It went by really quickly, which I definitely wasn’t expecting given covid. Speaking of covid, I’m vaccinated now, which is very exciting because that means I’ve been able to go out a bit more now! (not that I have much to do with or without covid) …and I’m starting to ramble…

I’m going to try to be more transparent and honest on here! A lot of the content I had before wasn’t “me”, I was just trying to create what I thought others wanted so I’d be more liked, which is why I got burnt out easily. Here’s some types of stuff you can expect from me: (most of it’s similar to what I had before, there’s no huge changes here)

  • lifestyle (which is what I’ve always been doing)
  • a bit of fashion (?)
  • wellness/mental health/self care (since mental health is very important and I want to encourage y’all to focus on yourselves!!)
  • books (I love reading but don’t read much, so we’ll see where that leads)
  • lgbtq+ stuff (I’m excited for this, hopefully y’all are too)
  • pretty much a whole bunch of different categories that can be meshed into the word “lifestyle”

A bit more about me/what I’ve been up to…

  • I cut and dyed my hair… several times! I dyed it pink and then purple (which its currently at) and I’d say its around my shoulders! I love changing things up, and given my impulsive-ness it was really fun doing that!
  • I shared the blog with some irl friends (not my proudest moment, but I don’t think any of them are reading this) (if you are, HI, please let me know that you’re reading this haha it’d make me really happy)
  • I finally figured out that I’m an INFP
  • …and maybe an enneagram type 4 (though I could be a 6 or 9 I’m not 100% sure)

I feel like I’m oversharing even though I’m… not… anyways, I’ve been listening to a lot of music lately, so be sure to look out for a “playlist” type post lol. I’m planning on posting once or twice a week (really depends on the week haha but more likely once a week because I’m that type of person)

Anyways if you’ve read this far, thank you so much for reading! I promise I’ll be more consistent and start interacting with your posts too! I want to catch up with you all too, let me know how you’ve been doing in the comments!

Once again thank you so much if you’ve read this far! xx

  1. So happy to have you back Arabella! Congratulations on finishing your freshman year ☺️ I’m looking forward to the direction your blog will take. We’re here for any and all authentic content you’re wanting to share. If it makes you happy and proud, go for it. It feels like tons has happened in my world. Mostly I’ve settled into my second trimester of college. I’m predominantly online now with two of my three classes each week not on campus. This has worked well since we’ve been put on lockdown twice since I started this new trimester just over a month ago! So I’m at home just reading, organising my wardrobe, trying to revive my fiddle leaf fig plant as I think it has root rot.. I think you get the gist.
