Reviewing my life on the Internet.

Hello! I'm Clo, in case you've forgotten. It's been a while. 

I can't believe it's December already! This year has flown by. I'm currently in Euston train station (London) waiting for a train and decided it's time to put pen to paper (or thumb to phone) about my internet silence, hiatus, disappearance, call it what you will. 

I can't pin point at what point I stopped contributing to my 'little space on the internet' but I know that events in my personal life contributed to my sudden radio silence and therefore protection of my thoughts and actions. Going offline was my way of keeping myself to myself, my Twitter, Pinterest, tumblr and Instagram became dormant and I didn't miss it. Internet life needed a time out.

In my silent time I've also gone from 'single' to 'in a relationship' (oooo, ahhh) and out of respect and privacy for him have wanted to keep it on the public, social down low. Despite him being totally amazing and fully supportive of anything I want to apply my creative eye to, some things are better just kept private, right? 

*I've just looked up to see the man opposite with his hands down his trousers, oh London.
-This guy clearly has no privacy issues.

Being back at uni, studying hard, working hard, having a boyfriend and a so called 'social life' ( falling asleep in front of a movie with a friend) life has been full on and it seems that the future is ever edging closer. I find with each payday my responsibility increases and with each lecture, my future becomes all too real, which made me question my online presence: past, present and future. 

The Internet is written in ink and can't be erased. Do I want an ill advised, I'll thought opinion of someone or something to let me down further along the line? Perhaps I'm thinking too much, but when people don't know you in 3d, how you talk, move and sound, they judge you by the 2 dimensions of your words. 

With this in mind, I've decided that in future I will definitely be more selective about what I post on the Internet. I feel like I've just watched one of those 'don't talk to strangers' online videos they made you watch in school. Anyone remember those? Ah, school nostalgia. Things were so simple back then. 

So the long and short of it is, I still want to blog and create fun, life experience fuelled, playful content and if someone happens to read it, has a chuckle or smiles, it's been of benefit to someone too. 

So with my train departing, I'm all done for today and I'll speak to you soon. 

Happy weekend!
