Okay so here's the deal with cold weather. Most people I know always lust after warm, sunny summer days, and when they finally come, everyone tries to savor every bit of them. It's so much appreciation that normal everyday things get neglected because people want to be out in the sun for as long as it's shining. They hate when they have work to get done, even more so than usually, because "they could have been outside in the nice weather".
I think I finally put my finger on why I like the cold. I always knew that for some reason cloudy and chilly is the right environment for me to work in, but I never fully understood why. It's because in the cold, people drop the weather talk and the excuses that come along with it. They no longer rely on an unstable factor to dictate to them what they should do today. So in a way, the cold makes them more productive - which in turn lets me get the job done faster too.
If you've been reading my blog for a while you can't not have noticed that I've had a little obsession with Rihanna ever since I saw her on tour in July, just a few days before my birthday. It was one of the best presents ever. She was one of my favorite pop stars when I was younger, but the hype died out for some time,. What happened is that I grew up, my taste changed, or better said - I started understanding that I don't need to like what's on the radio. From then on I accepted and embraced my rather alternative taste in music.
And then she put out the Anti album and it was unlike anything else I've listened to before.
I started respecting her so much as an artist from then on. When I saw she was going on tour I almost couldn't find anybody to go with me, which by the principle of wanting the things you can't have only made me want to go more. And when I finally saw live, my obsession became official. And it's all documented here.
I'm back! And I'm so excited to be. I'm so glad that I have a blog where I can put my spare time to purposeful use. Meanwhile, other aspects of life have been demanding too much of my attention, and I always regret not being that type of organized person that gets all their work done under pressure. However, let's not forget that there are people that don't get that work done at all and I'm happy to know I don't fall into that category. Even so, I don't regard writing posts as work, much more as something to take my mind off tasks and deadlines and to relax. So here is my ootd :)
I love the feeling you get when you start a new project. To some people, this project may be some sort of huge lifestyle change, "the beginning of a new era" so to say. To me personally, I get more easily motivated if I think about even little things as a fresh start. I call it "the beginning of a new year". Whenever I use the my little, made-up term, I start getting a certain feeling of spring - this is probably why it is my favorite season. Whenever I get the spring vibes, I also feel the need to portray them on he outside, and what is a better way to do that than my outfit?
Btw, it's almost the beginning of winter over here in Europe. Still, I found a day warm enough that it was appropriate for my spring vibes outfit, and I used the opportunity.
Hi! I'm back. It has not been an easy few weeks over here. A lot of times the question comes up about whether or not to give up a few things in order to be able to concentrate on others. After all, I'm always somewhere, doing something, signing myself up for new experiences, perfecting my older hobbies and the excuse it always that it helps me grow as a person. While it might be true, getting three hours of sleep each night definitely isn't promoting growth in any way.
As with a lot of other things, my blog is taking a hit from my decisions too. What happened to regular posting for instance? There are only 24 hours in a day...
And so, in the process of accepting the fact that I cannot make time and cutting down on activities, I know the one thing that I will not let go of - my blog. It took me so much willpower to overcome the anxiety of creating it and I still feel uncomfortable when someone I know asks me about it. In the few moths that I've had it I've learned to own up to it and to be proud, instead of getting all shy about it and thinking the others might take me for weird. I remember I had the website set up in February already, but I only summoned all my powers to write my first post in mid April. However, when I finally did it, it felt so great. It was the feeling of accomplishment after years of only dreaming. I'm sure everyone that has dared to do something they were scared of knows the feeling I'm talking about.
Anyway, on a brighter note, here is a cool new outfit that I put together:
