I think it's time to close up shop at The Musings.

After three years of college and three years of blogging, I've been hit by inspiration. Then again, maybe it was the lack of inspiration that caused the change.

I haven't truly written on this blog in a long time. Sure, I can throw together a playlist without even thinking about it, but it's not truly writing. As sad as it makes me, I think I've outgrown this blog. I think it's time to start fresh and move on.

This doesn't mean that I'm not proud of the work I've done. I love everything that has been posted here. I love the connections I've created and the friendships I've made. But right now my focus is the future, and I'm ready to really get knee-deep in my passion: Journalism. I'm now an editor at my college newspaper and want to start branding myself as a journalist. Website, resume, Linked I come.

Someday I may return to this style of writing. I will miss my carefree and opinionated writing, but right now it just isn't the right fit for me. I'm truly ready to start making myself into the journalist that I want to be.

I'm taking a break from The Musings of a Wannabe Star. I don't know how long it will be or if I'll return, but I will miss it. I appreciate every follower, every comment, every retweet and every like. But I think I'm ready for the next chapter of my life. For me, that means a fresh start.

Keep a look out for me; let me know what you think. I really would like to hear from you. You may not like my decision and I may regret it down the line. But right now it just seems right.

Jessi, always a wannabe star
