Preppy Scientist Playlist: Halloween Edition

Happy Halloween! I love this day and the buildup before it. Though I have no real plans (besides handing out candy to the kiddos), I really enjoy decorating, deciding on a costume, watching horror films, reading horror stories (Edgar Allan Poe anyone?) and listening to classic Halloween tunes!



I put together a fun Halloween playlist perfect for a Halloween night party with friends or a low-key night at home!

On fitting in

Whew,

It has been quite some time since I've been active on this space! I really don't have an excuse other than life being overwhelming as always and unfortunately something having to take the back burner. I really missed blogging. I enjoy having this space to talk about whatever I choose and even better having other people read what I have to say.

I have been active on my other social media spaces, but it just didn't compare to my blog! Today I'm easing back in by talking fitting in. I'm sure many people experience the feeling of not fitting in at some point in their lives. Whether it be at school, work, organizations, blogging it can be tough out there.

Since I was a child, I have never felt that I really fit in anywhere! My interests and hobbies were always slightly out of step with the people around me and it was pretty isolating. Anytime I did find myself comfortable within a group of people, there was at least one part of my personality that was being stifled. Even now, in my adult life, I still don't think I have it figured out. I sometimes envy people with large groups of friends (even though I know that is not for me) because I look at them and think, "they've got it figured out."

I've even felt that way about blogging! I used to stress myself out thinking about where I should fit in as a blogger. Do I join XYZ network? Should I focus on one specific area? Should I censor myself? Hard questions that I still don't have perfect answers to...

What I've come to realize lately is I am who I am, I like what I like and I'll blog about whatever I want. There is no need to stress about finding a place to belong because I can create that place. I've done it here and I know I can do it wherever else life takes me!

Happy to be back
xoxo
