Alright so, I feel like most of the time about me's are pretty lame. I am going to try and not be THAT lame. There are two ways I could do this. I could describe to you how I view myself, but then you wouldn't get the whole picture because it is just my perspective. I could tell you what other people have said about me or have told me about myself. I think with that option you also don't get to see the big picture of who I really am. So I guess I'm just going to do both.
I think I view myself as someone that has a lot of anxiety when I am not doing something productive. I am very sensitive to situations that happen in my life, not in an emotional way, but more of an empathetic way (If that makes sense). I really like old things, and some things that have lost their importance in the world. I think its because, if I didn't no one would care about these things. I don't care about what other people think about me, the things I do, or wear (I wish more people were like that). I don't mind being called weird, because odds are the people that call me "weird" are normal and at least I am not normal like them. I really like doing wild things and just doing things that don't really seem like they are supposed to be done. Don't get me wrong though, I definitely don't do a lot of stuff because it feels wrong, I suppose it kind of just depends what it is. I don't typically "hate" people (hate is a super strong word) but I do dislike people if they give me reasons. I vibe situations and people out, and a lot of the time I can tell within the first couple of minutes if I like or dislike something. I love music, and try to actively look for new music. I really don't enjoy being mean, but I will stand up for anyone that needs it (I love helping people). I am an artist, but I am my toughest critic. I am someone that believes that you can do anything that you put your mind to, and anything is possible, even though I get down on myself sometimes. I have a zero tolerance for stupidity.
I have been told that I am "one of a kind", that they will "never meet anyone that reminds them of me", that I am "a weirdo". My friend told me that she tells people that ask about me that I am "an awesome person and that I am sweet and fun to hangout with." In high school a bunch of people thought that I did drugs a lot because I was "very skinny, and hung out with all the other kids that did drugs". (I didn't really do drugs, have before, not to into them.)My other really good friend told me that I am a "very individualized person with a unique sense of fashion taste unlike most. Beautiful, caring and not afraid to be the different one" (he's so sweet <3). I've been told that people "don't understand how I think", that I am "intimidating" (I promise that I am nice!). There is a lot of good and bad I guess.. As there is with much gossip.
I started this blog in May of 2013. I started it because I needed an outlet. I had went to art college for a year and was taking a year off before I moved to London to change schools and continue college. For most of the year, I didn't have much to do, and my anxiety took me to some dark places. A friend told me that I should do something that makes me feel empowered so my anxiety wouldn't rule me. Applying to a fashion school made me feel like I should start a blog to show my individuality and to make me look more professional. It became the most empowering thing for me. It made me realize so many good things about myself, and talents that I didn't even know that I had. You (my readers) will never truly understand how much this blog means to me, and how much I love each and every one of you. I would love to hear back from you guys, in anyway possible. You guys make this experience so great for me.
