A few months ago, I had a quarter-life crisis. I realized that I was turning 20 soon and felt little sense of achievement. What was I doing with my life? Why was I just letting the days pass me by quietly?
And that's why I started the blog. To do something. Although at the time, I wasn't quite sure where I was going with this.
It was somewhere along the lines of a documentation for my days, and to see what kind of a response a little blogger with no experience like me could get. Being a communications major (nerd), I was interested in seeing how my blog would spread.
Dear readers, you've already given me more than I could've imagined.
It's been a while since I've dreamed big. I found it perfectly acceptable to be going through the mundane notions of life. I've never really been passionate or excelled at anything in particular. But now, I've got something to call my own. Something to look forward to. Something that I look forward to watching grow.
I've met so many incredible people and have been inspired by what they do. I'm enjoying this quirky fashion circle that makes it okay refuse blending in with the crowd. I'm enjoying how people are using fashion to convey their politics. I suppose I've always had a sort of whimsical sarcasm to me, but being told that my writing is my weapon inspires a new way of thinking. Thank you for helping me to want to dare to think outside the box, and express those opinions.
I have a certain pride in being a walking paradox. I'm a chameleon in my styles because I like to continue surprise people. Let's face it- people do judge on appearance and dress, but if my appearance chances, I'm a little harder to figure out. There's honestly a certain thrill in being a different person than my first impression gives off.
My 20th birthday just passed, and I could not feel a greater sense of accomplishment and pride. Having a blog is undoubtedly one of the best things that has happened.
