A picture's worth a thousand words
In a bid to keep you updated I'm posting this, which is basically just to tell you that I'm still alive and haven't died off yet. I know I said I wouldn't post until after Tax Season, but I woke up inspired today. In ten days I'll be twenty-one, and I can't wait! I just learned that I'm going to be getting the amazing Nikon 1 J3 for my birthday to replace my three year old canon point and shoot vlogging camera, and I couldn't be more excited and thankful to my parents. The canon point and shoot was the first big purchase I made when I was eighteen, and it's stuck with me through some tough times, and you can definitely tell. It looks like it's been rolled down a rocky hill and just barely survived, but I still love it. I'm going to display it in my room somewhere to always remind me where I started from. I feel like I've grown more in the last few years, then I have in my whole life, and that it's a testament to the people I've allowed to stay in my life and people I've had to let go of. I had years where I let toxic people dictate the quality of my life, and when I let them go I went through a whole phase of finding myself again, and I think I'm finally getting there.
You got to strut like you mean it
Right now I'm starting to experiment with different styles, and it's fun. I never thought I would ever consider wearing a bodycon dress, at all, but here I am in one. My body has been the source of so much struggle and discontent that I can't remember a time where I was ever truly happy with it (and I doubt that I'll ever stop thinking I'd look better if I could perfect something), but I am getting more comfortable with myself. It's kind of awesome. I looked in the mirror and saw curves I didn't know I have, and realized that I can do a LOT with what I have. I have hips, a pretty good waist, long legs, and my boobs look good in my better bras, so I can work with it. I put in three orders to Asos in the last week, as well as one to BooHoo and another to Forever 21, so I'll be filming a haul video next Sunday as well (I have a few bits from H&M and F21 that I'll be showing in a haul today). Also, can anyone believe that Game of Thrones is coming on next Sunday? I can't wait!
music makes people come together
Last but not least, I wanted to share that I am officially going to Outside Lands this year! Mother Dear and I were able to score some of the Eager Beaver Tickets, as well as shuttle passes. I can't wait to see the lineup and hope to even see a few of you there. This year is going to be full of exciting things. I have two blog photos shoots lined up, and I'm going to see The 1975 on the 21st of April. In my last post I talked about my love of 30 Seconds to Mars, and they're coming to the Bay in September, and I got tickets to see them! This year is filled with impossible things that have suddenly become possible. I have to go now and get ready to film the haul video and eat my toast that has been sitting in the toaster for the last half an hour, so I'll see you all in my next one. Bye!
