Let's Be Real.

Praesent commodo cursus magna, vel scelerisque nisl consectetur et. Curabitur blandit tempus porttitor. Fusce dapibus, tellus ac cursus commodo, tortor mauris condimentum nibh, ut fermentum massa justo sit amet risus. Cras mattis consectetur purus sit amet fermentum. Cras mattis consectetur purus sit amet fermentum.

 

Let's Be Real.

Erik Engstrom

It's been awhile. 2018 is among us. Resolutions were made, and I may have already failed... whoops. 

As you can tell, I've taken some space from this blog for awhile. I wanted to start the new year well and with high hopes. I have however been thinking a lot about this blog. What is this? What is it used for? How do I express myself to you, the reader? 

I think there is always the risk of having a psuedo-personality when portraying yourself online. There is the risk of masking your true self before hundreds of people. And I am longing to be one that does not do that for you. 

If there is one lesson I've learned from 2017 it is to be authentic. I'm not talking about Instagram's #liveauthentic. I'm talking being myself and being real with you all. I celebrate the fact that I can be a serious, deep thinker yet a goofy, wild child.  

So as we look towards the future I promise to be me. I promise to be silly. I promise to laugh. I promise to tell real stories. I promise to share my authentic opinion on products. I promise to be Erik.

This is me.
