There is something therapeutic about coffee houses. I’m not sure if it’s the drinks, the chill atmosphere, or the eccentric music in the background, but I always feel creative and introspective. For the last few days I have been thinking about what kind of blogger I want to be. I take inspiration from some of my favorite bloggers like Kyrzayda Rodriguez and Audrey from LULU LINDEN. What drew me in to their blogs was that they don’t sugarcoat everything. There is something to be said about the power of candor. By just reading their posts I feel we’re alike in many ways, and they make me feel like I am not the only one going through certain trials in life. It is easy to pretend everything is fine and beautiful like nothing goes wrong in your life, but that is simply not real. One of my goals on here to make connections with you all, not just through clothes or makeup, but just with life in general. So I thought I would share some things you might not know about me.
I DO NOT LIKE TO BE THE CENTER OF ATTENTION
I know that might sound kind of funny considering this whole blog is about me, but this is my safe place. These photos that you see on here might look relaxed, but honestly I always feel so awkward having people take photos of me, especially in public. I’m always wondering if I look funny or if I am trying too hard. But I fake it till I make it.
I AM A EXTROVERTED INTROVERT
While I love my people, I love my me-time much more. I always fluctuating between two moods, I’m either a social butterfly or completely anti. There is literally no in between. Like I’ll go from being at all the events to acting like a complete vampire in my room. I know y’all can relate to that feeling.
I LOVE PINEAPPLE ON PIZZA *INSERT EVIL LAUGH*
I know this one seems a bit random, but I am always seeing people down my TL slandering putting pineapple on pizza. First of all, it is BOMB. I always get pineapple and pepperoni ( I call it P squared, get it lol). I just love the sweet and savory flavors mixing around. I feel like Remy from Ratatouille when he had the little flavor rainbow going on in his head.
I’M REALLY INTO ASTROLOGY
I eat, sleep, and breath my sign. I am a Sagittarius, so that speaks for itself. I know a lot of people don’t believe in astrology but I have found that it has a lot of truth to it. Now I’m not saying I am one of those people that read their horoscope everyday but I definitely believe in the compatibility part of it. It has been tried and true for my relationships with people, so hey.
I ONLY HAVE MY LIFE TOGETHER 50% OF THE TIME
This drives me CRAZY, ugh. I try my hardest to be organized and put everything in its proper place but what can I say I’m human *shoulder shrug*. At least I’m not the only one, right? Since I’ve gotten to college, I discovered that all of us are trying to get our s#@t together. But I can say that many of my best experiences have been unplanned and serendipitous, so there’s a silver lining.
Those are just a few things I thought you might find interesting about me. I hope as my blog grows, I can get to know you all too! As always, thanks for reading!
