Happy Halloween from an awkward girl! My favorite holiday. Too bad I will be at work all evening and I have a paper due in the morning that I need to finish. No celebrating for me this year, all a part of growing up I suppose. Anyway, enjoy this picture. Because I laughed for like 3 minutes straight when I first saw it.

Really cool example of tumblr from an awkward girl.

H.i I’m teaching my class how to use tumblr.

style rules from an awkward girl.

Since I obviously have the coolest style around, I figured I’d share with you my style rules and regulations. This way you can dress exactly like me.

1. Layer as many clashing prints and colors as possible. Yes, I do wear purple and yellow flannels over navy and white striped shirts. And I’m proud of it.

2. Next, rip up almost every piece of clothing you own. Or at least cut the neck off most of your tops. About 85% of my clothing is altered from the way I bought it. The really sad part is, when I’m shopping I envision what I can do to alter the things I buy.

3. My jeans will always be cuffed. I don’t care how cold it is, my ankles will forever be exposed.

4. You can never have too many pairs of Wayfarers or slip-on shoes.

5. A good leather jacket is necessary for fall. Get one right now.

6. Band tee’s. Necessary. But don’t leave them as tee’s. Cut off the neck, make them a crop-top, cut them into a tank, fringe them, WHATEVER. They are a necessary staple of my wardrobe. And if you can get your hands on some bleach, it will make them even better.

7. Don’t brush your hair. That’s all I’ve got to say about that.

8. Statement jewelry all day, every day. Chunky bracelets and watches, necklaces with one large charm on them, and obnoxious bobble rings.

9. People are going to look at you. And that’s ok. Especially when you go to college in FratTown USA, people don’t exactly understand me.

10. The last rule is the most important. Possibly the only rule that actually matters. Dress the way you want to. And be happy. Because isn’t that what life’s about?

Now, I know what you’re thinking. HOW WILL I EVER LOOK AS COOL AS YOU, JOSIE?!
Don’t worry friends, I’ll teach all the fine details of looking as awkward as I do.

Still. Seriously. It’s so good. Go listen to it. Right now.

introduction from an awkward girl.

Well, hi.

My name’s Josie and I’m awkward.

That’s me.

I like Clean Linen Glade air fresheners, Gatorade, and listening to obnoxiously loud music in the car.

But enough about me.

I suppose I should explain to you the purpose of this blog. Well, technically it’s a project for my Fashion Journalism class. But since I’m really funny and stylish, I figure it will launch me right into celebrity status or whatever.

I guess what this is really about is being comfortable enough with yourself to not only dress your style, but live your style. I clash as many colors possible and about 85% of my clothing is ripped, but I’m proud of it.

I used to try to fit in. I tried to look normal and wear what was trendy and what every other girl on my campus wore. But I already had too many holes punched in my face and drawings on my skin to actually look normal. And it was super lame.

I also used to be really serious and stressed all the time. My life was all about to-do lists and worrying. Then about a year ago, I realized how much life I wasn’t living. I was a twenty year old that was living a 45 year-old’s life. So I decided to change that.

I ditched my old boring life and decided to actually take a look around and see the beauty in everything rather than worry about it. I ditched my normal girl clothes and I stopped caring about Fashion Week like every other fashion major.

Because for me, being a fashion major actually has very little to do with fashion. Sure, I will forever be addicted to shopping and appreciate that clothing is art. But my real passion is music. I found it to be the one thing that aids me in feeling completely alive. While most fashion majors may thrive on the energy from runway shows; for me, nothing makes me feel more alive than being smashed in a crowd with the bass of the live band running through my veins.

I realized a long time ago, that I was not normal. And that I never will be. And that’s how I choose to express myself.

But don’t think just because of that, I’m some super cool girl with crazy confidence that never gets zits or anything. I run into something or trip on a daily basis, I drop things all the time, and I get tongue-tied when I’m forced to talk to a cute boy.

I’m not normal. But I am so happy.

So hang here for a little bit and learn about dressing and living like me. I promise it’s pretty cool. I won’t bore you.
