2011, The year of being awesome
It's my birthday today! And in honor of it, I'm bringing up something I've been thinking about for awhile now... I call it "Just say NO to boring!" I've realized over the past few months that I've been wearing increasingly less interesting clothing. And maybe it's because it's winter. Or maybe because it's dark. Or maybe just being slightly depressed has done it- but whatever the cause, I'm through with it! I came across this blog by a 14 year old called Style Rookie; and it's pretty amazing. She's going through a phase that I remember going through in my early 20's. Reading the things I used to read (Girl, by Blake Nelson), listening to music I used to listen to (Hole), wearing interesting clothes like I used to, and dressing for specific occasions or moods; and I thought, "Why the hell am I wearing and doing such uninteresting things? What happened to me?" And I was done. I thought, "I don't have a 9 to 5 corporate job. I don't even have a 'professional' type job. Why shouldn't I wear whatever I want to?" So, yeah. I'm making a concerted effort to wear more interesting clothes; scarves, boots, hats, earrings, the works. I'd rather err on the side of weird than be boring for a while. How about you?
