Last November, during my first semester of college, I decided to create a blog called “Good Girl Problems,” inspired by my reluctancy to partake in “the college experience” (i.e., frat parties, drinking, hooking up, and yadda).
By the end of my freshman year, there have been many people who shared me their stories, thanked me for this blog (and for my existence, lol), and even criticized the context of the posts. Overall, I never thought that GGP would even get noticed. But I’m grateful that there are other “goody-goodies” who felt the same way I did…
Unfortunately, I feel obliged to admit why I haven’t released anything new in several months. And no, it’s not because I turned into a “bad girl,” haha. (Then again, no one can be at either extremes…)
I tried to be subtle about it in my previous post, “What Makes a Good Girl”. But here, I will be explicit about it: I don’t feel that I can continue this blog. The feeling is uncertain, but maybe it’s because my perspective has changed since entering college. “The college experience” doesn’t sound as terrifying as I used to think (but I have not gone through it yet, haaaah). Still, I keep true to my own standards, that I don’t need to fit into a certain mold for everyone to like and respect me. Like I mentioned in that post, I am content with who I am, and I ask for nothing more.
This isn’t me saying that I will leave. This blog is for you. From time to time, I will add something here that relates to the blog. But no more problems will be added. I think all the problems have been listed, hehe.
So this is where it ends.
Thank you all for bringing this blog to life (this wasn’t just a one-woman thing). Remember to stay lovely, because that is what you are all.
