Go Outside an #ootd

It's not a breakdown, it's a breakthrough.

Roll with the punches an #ootd

I've very lucky that I'm taking on a 4 year bachelors degree program, in a field that I've been passionate about since I was a child. I realize that some people who don't go through this have a harder time with routine or might not be as disciplined. This also has to do with who they are and how they grew up. This doesn't mean that people who don't go to school can't be as successful because that's not the case at all, but recently, I was reading #GIRLBOSS and Amoruso was talking about how she wishes she could have had the will power to go to university (but her not going allowed her to build her empire). This made me think about how stressful school is right now, but also how the grades that I'm getting and the work that I'm assigned is not the be and end all of my fashion career & how one technical outerwear jacket does not define my capabilities as a fashion designer.

M.A.S.H & more an #ootd

My creative identity is not defined by numbers or letters. It is uncovered though a journey of mishaps and the everlasting lust for imagination. When the realization of potential coincide with my values, my dreams then become a foreseeing goal. The mind is set by beliefs which I look into the universe for.
Paths widen, doors open and the future doesn’t seem so far away.

Positive thoughts only an #ootd

I'm not exactly a natural born net-worker, but I've recently began to pull together different moments from the past three years of my life that have happened due to the connections I've made with my peers and faculty. Sometimes I think people pursuing an education forget that their professors are the first connection to industry and that their peers are second. I was lucky enough to make a friend who connected me with an industry level job this summer, I have a good shot at getting my work practicum placement at the 1st company of my choice because of another amazing friend and earlier this summer I got to experience an educational adventure in New York and Italy because of a faculty suggestion.

The other day my friend said to me, (loosely phrased like this) "It's because I'm friends with you that I know people in all 4 of the years of this degree." I feel so accomplished when I receive comments like this. I just feel like i'm meant to do this even more.

Check off your days

I have a whiteboard calendar in my bedroom, uni schedule, work things, family stuff, birthdays, due dates and anything else that needs to be scheduled are written down (I can be miss.forgetful at times). I look at that board every time i'm in my bedroom, which is a lot, and several months ago I noticed that I crossed off the days with an X and something inside of me question that. The X suggested a thought like "finally, this day is over" and when I looked at my calendar mid way through the month, it was kind of sad looking because of all the X's, the crossed out days. The optimistic side of me was asking myself why don't I check off the days to suggest a thought like "today has been completed". This was a very small change that I made in my life and it was something that I shared with my friend who remembered this change I made (and reminded me of it yesterday) and told me that it had an influence in her life. Made me feel pretty darn good about myself. 

So I guess what i'm saying is, don't X cross your days off, check them off.  

Obsessed with this sweater weather

My camera was on and this was the shot and it's cool okay?

Aesthetic, am I right ladies?

Lot's of hard work happened this weekend...

A very important prezi was created

work in progress an #ootd & more

Play hard. Everything in life is a process; it’s possible to achieve anything you want in life just by asking yourself to believe in it. Give and take, for example: if you give nothing to the universe, it won’t want to give back anything to you. You may not believe in the powers of God or the Universe or anything for that matter, but give and take doesn’t just have to do with the belief in a system, it has to do with the belief within one’s self, YOURself, and after having regular occurrences of struggle followed by success you will realize, a) how much you have to offer to society, and b) how much the society has to offer to you. Have you ever just sat down and thought about your self-worth? Where you’re going in life and how it is affecting and effecting everything (it’s a load to think about, I know). Well, I can say I successfully tried to plan my future and this thinking has lead to a process of sadness, crying and forgiveness. People deal with most life situations in different ways, for example if something has to be said, I suggest ripping of the band-aid – just do it. Might as well say how you really feel instead of walking around with a dreaded burden on your shoulders. Now, I know several people who would disagree with this because they don’t want to hurt other peoples’ feelings but, when it comes down to it, sometimes, you’ve got to be a little selfish and think about your needs before someone else’s. It is your life after all, take yourself out of the situation, look inside and do the right thing over the easy thing.
Processing your future and paving a path for your future plans is frightening to think about. I think the main reason we get so caught up in planning our future is the realization of possible failure, associated with anger or sadness, associated with money and basically uncertainty.

All wrapped up an #ootd

You learn a lot about someone by what kind of music they listen to. Do I even need to mention the Hotline Bling video?!? It's interesting what certain people listened to a couple years ago and what they listen to now, or what songs can make a person be an instant good mood, and what can make them vulnerable.

A song I was obsessed with a year ago:

I look directly at Kate and say, "This outfit needs a purse" SO credit to Kates bag that she basically thrifted

"The only thing I smoke is my competition" an #ootd

Title of this post is credited to Mrs. Sophia Amoruso, a fashion maven, empire builder and #girlboss

The ruthlessness of an ENTJ spirit isn't necessarily a bad thing. I think it acts as a strength, I look at idols in my life such as Kelly Cutrone or Sophia Amoruso and think, they really didn't know what the future would hold for them, they saw a path, created opportunity and took it. I've been trying hard not to plan too far ahead and to create opportunity and use who I know and what I know to bring me further. That's my current thought bubble.

Classic pink shirt. 

This is the first late night of the semester. If we talked on the phone tonight, thanks for keeping me procrastinated.
