Allow me to Re-introduce myself...

My name is Chymere A., a multi-dimensional creative, sports/music/tech enthusiast, and former athlete. I'm also a veteran blogger, self-proclaimed writer, and freelance web designer, educated by the illustrious North Carolina A&T State University.  

Over time, as my personal and professional interest have varied, I've made a point to document the entire journey through blogging, opting to share my thoughts, opinions, perspectives and certain life experiences via the internet. Although I've been M.I.A. for the past few months, it does feel good to be back.

Navigating adulthood along with learning/adapting to the ends and outs of being an entrepreneur is a struggle sometimes and maintaining balance doesn't always come easy. Honestly, one of the reasons why I've dropped the ball on blogging was due to the fact that it's not making me money, so it hasn't been a top priority as of late, which is wild because it's never been about the money - as my creativity and the freedom of self expression is why I carved out a space for myself here on the internet in the first place. Remember why you started is valid advice in most instances. I didn't necessarily lose sight of that but - perhaps - somewhere down the line, the answers to my why have evolved. 

Instead of forcing content during my absence, I simply "fell back" and told myself that, when the time is right, I'll get back to blogging...eventually. After months of nothingness in terms of personal branding and often falling short when it came to writing about sports, it finally feels like the time is right. I think it's important to maintain a space that gives me complete creative control, where I'm not constantly thinking about articles like I am for #TheSkyBoxSuite or reshaping my creative ideas to fit someone else's vision like I do with freelance web design. As much as I love both and the opportunities that have come out of executing those ventures, I'm so incredibly thankful to have a space to express myself freely. 

As far as life updates are concerned, perhaps I'll save the more intricate details for another post. In a nutshell, I'm probably more career focused that I've ever been, my heart is open to love, and every single day, I come up with new/more improved ways to fall deeper in love with my entire self, especially on the days I battle with waves of depression and struggle to get out of bed in the morning. One day, I'll open up more about how hard that is, especially when you have a business to run and deadlines you're hired - and therefore obligated - to adhere to. Despite what is happening, whether it's inner turmoil or circumstances outside of my control, there is so much to be thankful for when I take the time to  stop and smell the sunflowers; genuine gratitude really has its way of putting things into perspective. Simply put, nothing is perfect, but life is good...even on days it could be better.

Those who know me, know that I started on this platform back in 08-09 and I've been blogging ever since. I took somewhat of a hiatus from personal blogging to focus more on The Sky Box Suite (an online pub dedicated to sports and music) but lately, something has been missing from that too, so I needed time to figure out what was lagging in the inspiration department and I think I finally found it. "It's all in meeeee..."

Sidenote: As I'm listening to Charles Hamilton's 2010 'SegaHamilton.blogspot.com' mix tape reminiscing on my OG blogger days, I may even keep the '.blogspot.com' for nostalgia purposes. Iconic.

so yea... I'm excited about all that I have planned and I'm looking forward to what beautiful chaos erupts from it. My heart is racing with all the dope ideas swarming around in my membrane that I cannot wait to execute.  If you're coming with positive energy and #GoodVibes, feel free to join me on this incredible journey of manifestation and living a life by design.

To those of you who are new here, welcome. To my A1, Day 1 members of my internet family, thank you, thank you for your constant support and unwavering patience. It is my intent to keep creating and hopefully my inspiration will follow suit, so that I can continue cultivating this little corner of the internet that is still, very much near and dear to my heart.

-Signing off-
