Just renewed my domain. Weird to think how much can change in a year. A year ago, I had no clue what this blog would bring me. I only did it because I wanted to pursue my passion for fashion. Then, possibly transition to something I’ve always wanted to do. My end goal for this blog,
Getting people to tell their story. Personally, my favorite form of entertainment is personal and real stories. Great examples of this work is Humans of NY, StoryCorps, and Strangers podcast. I absorb that material like a sponge. There is seriously some things out there you cannot write. Might as well get the best stories straight from the source, am I right?
I guess that would mean I need to dive deeper into who I am and tell my stories as well. What’s the point of giving a space for encouraging those to reveal their life tales, if you are too afraid to do it too? I wouldn’t say I am wise, nor am I strong. I try to act those things but I know I can only make that character real for so long. I have had some crazy experiences though. Traveling to different countries starting at the age of seven, still learning to love myself and body everyday, accepting there will be those who you love that will be your enemy someday, losing control of your body and how to cope once the nightmare is over, becoming someone you would hate if you ever met them, the difference between “love” and “in love”, understanding you shouldn’t push those away who will show you what there is to love about yourself, and even more.
The purpose of this blog post is to make a public statement. I will still post interviews about people’s clothes. The whole point of that interview bit is if I compliment people on their outfits, I should get to know them better for rich style could also mean rich personality. However, I shall begin transitioning people telling stories about themselves. It could be their happiest memory, their worst memory, their most embarrassing story, if they only had a year to live what would they do, etc.
I am starting anew because I am moving on to bigger and better things. I have already been accepted as a transfer Communication major student to Cal Poly SLO and UCSB. We’ll see what UCLA and Berkeley decide at the end of this month. Until then, stay tuned for more material. Thank you to whoever has followed my posts so far, I hope it has been fun and entertaining in some form 🙂
