I Have (Finally) Returned!

Look who’s made a choice on coming back! Me!

It’s definitely been awhile and I have most definitely thought a lot about my blog…

I thought a lot about whether I wanted to continue with it or if I wanted to say goodbye to Collinswoah’sCorner. And the decision has not been easy. On one hand it’s been nice to not have the pressure of thinking about what to write and coming up with content. On the other hand, I really feel like part of me has been missing and I missed producing content.

With that being said, I am going to continue with Collinswoah’sCorner BUT I will be cutting back the amount of times I am posting a week. I plan to now only post 1 to 2 times a week and only post content that I’m super happy with as well as super proud of, which is what I should always be doing regardless.

My time off has been good but definitely rocky. I had a tough time with my health physically and mentally. I’m happy to say I’ve been working hard on sifting my focus and reorganizing my way of thinking when it comes to me and my approach to certain topics. It is, of course, a work in progress but we all are. It’s part of life.

I plan on going into more detail about the kinds of things I faced in my time off in my next post, this one I just wanted to keep sort and sweet. Don’t worry, I didn’t forget about you guys or the blog. I’ve honestly missed this part of my days and my routine.

So I’m back! Good content about me and writing coming your way so stay tuned and be hyped. I know I am, which is great to say…

Stay classy and sassy just like always<3


The Latest and (Not so) Greatest

Explaining a bit of what’s going on with me.

Monday evening I went to see a psychologist. And I needed it so much. Honestly, more than I even realized. Which we all know, I know I needed it quite a lot.

I’m not going to go into it too much because I have to draw a line somewhere, ya know? But what I am going to share is that I ended up talking about things that I just didn’t realize we bugging me. Obviously they were more subconscious but still. I also was more honest with myself and my psychologist than I feel that I have been about these types of issues.

One of those things being, I hold myself to a very ridiculously high standard. Like stupid high. And I need to stop that. Which won’t happen immediately or all on its own but with work and time, hopefully I can. I also blame myself too much and put pressure on myself in ways I really shouldn’t and ultimately are unhealthy for me.

I’m sure you guys know where this is leading…

I’m taking a break. A real, real break. I’m going to try to learn to relax, focus on me and rest up.

Right now, the high standard that I put on myself with my blog is not helping things. It won’t be too long but it won’t be too short.

Though I’m looking forward to this break, I’m looking forward to working on no pressure writing and just see what blossoms when I come back.

Goodbye 2017!!

Reflecting on the year as a whole

This is my last post for 2017! Oh my goodness, I can’t believe it’s about to be 2018. It really is true, the older you get the faster time seems to move. And yes, I know I’m only 24.

I wanted to take some time to reflect on good ole 2017 for a moment. All the good and some of the bad. 2017 has been one of the biggest years for me to date.

In 2017 I was able to travel to more places than I would have ever imagined and I got to do it with my best friend by my side. We went to Illinois, Indy, Tennessee, Kentucky, Mississippi and all over Ohio!

Mathew and I also had the pleasure of attending many cons during 2017 which is one of my favorite things to do with my free time.

I was able to make many new friends this year, strengthen relationships and let go of some other relationship, that last part sucked at the time but I’m (almost) okay with it now.

Unfortunately I almost lost my grandmother this year but she’s a strong, stubborn, fighter so thankfully we still have her with us. And she’s still living at home which is an even bigger blessing.

One of the biggest 2017 moments is that my divorce was finalized! It was such a huge and terrifying day but one I’m so glad to have had and have behind me.

2017 marked a new and big step in my career for me as I got a new job! My second full time job! Woo! And I absolutely love ever second of this new job. Plus I also opened NerdCentral13, my Etsy shop, this year! And I hit my goal of 10 sales in the first year! Yeah! Collinswoah’s Corner also got upgraded and hit it’s first birthday! Big milestones!

I bought my first car and love her to death. Her name is Vivian and she is my nerd-mobile.

I had many dark and troubling days this year but I got thought each and everyone of them. I won’t get into this too much as I want to keep this as happy as possible 🙂

Lastly, for those interested, my GameCube collection has grown tremendously. I am over my 30% goal for 2017 and actually have achieved 44.32% completion for 2017 which I am completely shocked by still.

I hope you all have had a great 2017. Here’s to an even better 2018!

I’m Back!

Hello, it’s me

I am back. Which is so weird. Why?


I have been working a ton of overtime at my job which has made me just completely lose all concept of time. So essentially it feels like I haven’t blogged in months when in reality that isn’t true. But hey, living at work, am I right?

I’m doing better overall. The days lately are very up and down, hit and miss, stop and go, you know all those things. So it’s a work in progress but I feel like it always is.

Christmas is almost here and with that I’m very thankful. It’s been a weird year for me with the holidays, I don’t really care too much for them this year. The spirit isn’t quite there and I just am looking forward to them getting here and passing just to breathe that sigh of relief that it’s done.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m very much looking forward to spending the time with my family, Mathew’s family and my friends but just getting ready for it and getting to it has been so built up and stressful. I just crave some me time, and some real true relaxation.

I really wish that I could bring some writing to my post today but I’m lacking in that. Everything in my head has been so jumbled up that it’s been difficult to try and work any of it out into any kind of writing.

Thank you all for your patience and understanding. I can’t wait to get back into the habit and swing of this. As well as bring some more writing to the world.

Stay classy and sassy

And happy holidays to all<3


Road Blocks and Guilt

See what I’ve done to myself now

Sunday afternoon I threw my back out. Pulling laundry out of the hamper. I swear it wasn’t anything more exciting than that. Plus this is like the fourth or fifth time in my life that I have done this. And I’m 24 years old. Terrible right?

Well it seems that every time that I throw my back out it gets harder and harder to recuperate from it. And this time it’s the longest it’s ever been. It’s Wednesday and I’m still struggling but it is getting better every single day.

Of course this can’t come at a worse time for me personally. I’m trying to prepare for the holidays, working overtime at work, making new products for my shop and trying to make my products for the sales I’ve been making! Plus this time of year really tends to get me down for personal reasons I’m not going to air right now. I hope you all understand.

This also has been taking it’s toll on my writing. I have pretty much just been living in my bed and watching TV or reading after I get off work because it’s the only thing that can take my mind off the pain.

The guilt that I have been feeling lately is not helping either. I feel guilty because I psychically can’t do something or need help and it sucks. I know I shouldn’t because I can’t help it but I do. Thankfully my mom has been wonderful in helping me where she can with things to make it a little less but it still sucks not being able to do something.

I put so much on myself and try to put so little on to others that when I do need help because I’m in a position where I physically am incapable it brings me way way way down.

So I’m taking a few days and I’m going to rest and get better and help heal my body and mind. That way I can come back better for my work and hopefully come back with more new and great things.

Trying New Things

Directional shift of the blog!

Hello and welcome back y’all!

Let’s take care of a little bit of business real quick here. So Monday I hit a milestone… 100 POSTS! What?! 100. Posts. Holy crap that is so many. Wow. I can’t believe it. I would have never thought that I would be at this point. Especially because I was terrified to take the leap to start this blog. But I’ve done it. Here we are! And I want to thank you all for it. I couldn’t have done it without your support. You guys reading my content are the reason why I continue to do this. So thank you.

I know that lately I’ve been doing more creative things instead of my “typical” content. To be completely honest I’ve been enjoying it a lot more. It’s been a struggle but in a completely different way rather than what I was doing before. It’s causing my creative juices to flow and to flow a lot more. With that being said I’ve been wanting to try some new things in the creative sense.

I officially want to try to being a creative blogger. I don’t know exactly what that is going to entail but that’s what I want to be. I want to challenge myself creatively. With my writing, my crafts and drawing.

Woah, wait, crafts and drawing?


I want to start drawing more and sharing those with you. Good or bad. Hopefully they’re good. For my sake! Ideally I’d share my drawings and either together or completely me, make a short story or poem or some sort of writing along with it. Or it be stand alone work. These are all just ideas being thrown out here.

As far as crafts go, I’d really enjoy sharing my journey of making things and exploring new crafting types, like crochet, refinishing things, sewing, cross-stitching, etc. It’d be fun. Or terrible. I will be showing my success AND my fails. So be ready for some frustrated posts! 😛

What do you guys what to see? What do you suggest I do or try? Like these ideas? (If I hear nothing I will assume you all LOOOOOVE these ideas!)

Stay classy and sassy ❤
