But the truth is that I had never planned to grow so distant.
But the thing is, as soon as I stepped outside to “live the moment”, be present and live my experiences through my own two eyes instead of through a screen, I realized just how much I missed doing that thing I did when I was little and technology was a stranger to me: to live.
I realized that the craz around numbers were numbing my creativity. That even though my self-portraits got a lot better (here’s my first OOTD post and this is one of the latest), none of them were channeling the vibe I wanted to send to all of you. I was taking pictures because I had to post, because this space has all of its photos taken by me.
These last couple months I spent not uploading much to Instagram, I got in touch with the old, little Florencia from 10 years ago, who used to take photos just for the sake of capturing the moment and sharing them on the internet to interact with friends and family, not giving a damn about followers and random people becoming my “personal fans”.
To be honest, I have no idea what’s going to happen to this blog. I don’t dare to close it and say good-bye. But if I have to be brutally honest, I neither want to put the effort requited to make it grow. I just want to write and express myself, inspire you and then get out there and send the rest of my day outside, living the life I built for myself brick on top of brick, hardly worrying about the stats.

So these pictures are some that I took a couple months ago, when summer was just starting here and I was, obviously, still living at my parents’ 🙂
