introduction from an awkward girl.
My name’s Josie and I’m awkward.
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.
