If you’re up for some one-on-one bonding time over ranting on about our tough lives, you’re in the right place. (We can be frieeennds!) Of course all of us are living extremely blessed lives, but sometimes we just have to let the things on our mind out so that we can move on and be all happy and chirpy again. What are you stressing out over these days? Tell me by commenting on this post(click the title of this post, then scroll down to the bottom of the post. You’ll find the comment box.)
And I know (trust me, I do, I’m in high school) that sometimes you just can’t whine to your friends or the people around you because they’re too involved and continuously complaining about the details of your dreary life to them might chase them off. So why don’t we(yes, me and you. You and Konni.) rant to each other about our daily struggles? I’m willing to talk. Or maybe just listen, if that’s what you want.
(So…let’s feed each other strawberries and have some quality bonding time like the people in this photo..?)
So let’s just sit down here with a cup of tea(ehh. I’ll have a chocolate Nesquik. But whatever works..) and talk about our hardships and the teeny-tiny annoying things that your husband/wife/girlfriend/boyfriend/employer/friend does that you just can’t stand. Let’s talk about trivial things(or crucial events, if you’re up for it) like shallow people at a hair salon. Or like 15 year old girls at a sleepover.
Honestly, these days I’m having a hard time with running a not-your-average-fashion-blog blog. It has its perks, like being able to connect more genuinely with my readers. I also get to do whatever I want whenever I want to. I get to be myself. But the hardships are pressing down on me these days. Typical fashion/style related blogs are usually packed with high-definition photos of pretty girls posing with an indifferent look on their faces, wearing the hottest trends or the cutest little vintage item. Their photos are all over tumblr, WeHeartIt, Instagram, etc. It’s easier for them to get recognized as a ‘fashion blog’ among young teens(mostly girls). But the thing is, I’m raw. Maybe too raw to be the owner of a fashion blog. I take raw photos, I don’t buy designer label clothes, and I don’t make things look pretty. Usually I criticize the current fashion industry or try to prove how awesome fashion is not by posting pictures of beautiful leggy girls in floral dresses but by writing my mind and trying to stay as true to myself as possible. And as lovely as it is for me, it’s so much harder to get noticed by the fashion industry or magazine scouts. This makes it more difficult to get my thoughts across to big crowds of people.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not looking down on other fashion-related blogs. I’ve just observed some differences between the majority of fashion blogs and mine. I’m just stating some thoughts that popped up in my head while exploring Seventeen Magazine’s Style Council teenage bloggers.
Being off the mainstream road can be tough, I guess.

I’m also stressed because of relationships and my emotions. I feel very frustrated when I can’t control my emotions. But then… schoolwork just keeps rollin’ in and I have so much to do everyday, which prevents me from getting a chance to sit down alone and sort my emotions out.
Well, that was me.
