We have made it to the official year – Kobe year! Although my birthday was actually on a Thursday, it was only right to extend it into the weekend. It’s crazy to think that I remember my 18th birthday like it was last Wednesday and it’s even more bizarre to think I wasn’t suppose to see 22 (I proved them wrong).
Here we are… In 2019. It’s hard for me to break down what I’ve been through these last couple of years. Not because I don’t remember what’s happened or I’m afraid to talk about it – but I don’t think the English dictionary has words that can explain it. For you to understand. Generalized Anxiety Disorder, losing my sister and best friend, heart failure, CMV, medications, trichotillomania, and depression. Despite all the negatives, I love myself now more than you’ll ever know.
I never thought I’d be doing this… Yet alone be telling you about the hardest yet most rewarding decision I’ve had to make. As I mentioned in my newsletter, I’ve decided to take a different route in terms of my career choice. For those of you that have been with me from the beginning you that becoming a successful Fashion Publicist has always been my dream. I mean heck I went to Iowa State University and studied Marketing and Public Relations with a minor in Fashion Design. But before I come clean with what I’ve been looking into, lets get into the facts. Who and why do people change careers?
The Importance of Self-Care: Backpack Edition
I’ve been sick. Like really sick. And I don’t mean writers block kind of sick. I mean I’ve had lack of self-care, which led me to complete isolation from any social media platform for weeks. I know a lot of you have been curious as to when I was going to upload another blog post; and to be honest I was questioning the same thing.
Fashion may not always make sense. And more than not, it never makes sense – that’s the beauty of it. From the “I’m too lazy to put my jacket on all the way” look, to the sock boots, and lets not forget the oversized sweatshirt look (because your pants are in the wash obviously). Regardless of whatever Fashion Week’s throw our way, fashion is forever evolving.
