Dear loves, I know my absence was unannounced, but I hope you are still here joining me on my blogging journey! :) These past few years have consisted of ups and downs when it comes to my blogging and I guess it all depends on a couple of different, but very important aspects such as time, inspiration and in my case, other priorities. This blog has mostly functioned as a photography, travel and fashion platform and occassionally I have given you insights in my life, but I have never put my daily activities in the centre of attention. First of all, I am a little sceptical about pouring your heart out on the notorious world wide web, second; I honestly don't think my life is important enough to create daily content around it. The same goes for Facebook, I don't feel the need to share my personal life with everyone, I'd rather talk to people in person about my thoughts. However, my situation has changed these past couple of months. As you might know, I am a Human Geography student at Utrecht University. This might be meaningless to you which I totally understand, Human Geography is an abstract term and often doesn't ring a bell. In short, I study Geography but only the human aspect of it. So NO volcanoes, earth layers, water cycles and tsunami's, thank god! But what dó we do then? We basically observe, research, analyse and (try to) clarify how people interact with space. Examples of themes which we keep ourselves busy with are migration, tourism and city development. I often describe my study as Psychology, but then linked to a geography, a location or a spacial element; 'Why do companies establish themselves in Asia?' and 'Why do people prefer to live in the city or in the countryside?' are just two of the thousands of questions which can be discussed. This explanation is probably still a blur to you all, but if you are interested I could 'dedicate' a post to my study area. Why am I telling you all of this? Almost every study at university has its own student association which organizes activities such as excursions, parties, lectures etc. for the students. Human Geography also has a student association which is called V.U.G.S. (Vereniging der Utrechtse Geografie Studenten) As of the start of September, I am a fulltime member of the V.U.G.S.-board. This means that, together with five other board members, I spend every day from morning till afternoon (and often evenings as well) managing the association; if you want to know more about my daily activities, you can check out my page on the V.U.G.S.-website here. This brings me to the main point of this post. I always spend a lot of time on creating my posts, what can I say? I am a perfectionist and not easily satisfied. This year, managing V.U.G.S. is my number one priority which leaves little time left for leisure. I simply don't have the time to create the same content regularly as I have done the past few years. Sure, occasionally I will be able to shoot an outfit properly with attention for detail and location. But sadly, I must say that this will be less often than I want to. Therefore I have decided to manage my blog a bit differently for one year; short posts to share moments, thoughts and inspiration with you and posts to give you an insight in my personal life alternated with more time-consuming and constructed posts every once in a while. Lets see how it goes! Love Aimee
