I’m not particularly sure how long this will last, for I have been known to fizzle out on rampages before (slow to amuse on the most part, quick to dampen, unless surrounded by torch bearers), but here it is:
I have made the decision to crossover from my detached and internal ways, and join this manic world of RSS feeds and blogs and…self-help books?
I am going to start researching. Perusing the products of my industry. Surfing the internet for inspiration, and maybe, maybe I’ll even begin listening to audiobooks.
*slight dip in voice due to lack of conviction*
Because I caught myself saying the other day:
“To be honest with you, I write for newspapers that I don’t read and magazines that I don’t subscribe to. Host television shows I don’t watch. Model clothes I don’t buy. I produce content for blogs I don’t check. I’m kind of a useless consumer.”
Which, on the whole, is 1) sort of disgusting and bratty sounding, but 2) a testament to my creative process. Oblivious to the conscious absorption of what the world has to offer, frolicking in the chambers of my insides (yipeee!), manifesting ideas based off of conversations and billboards and memories and travels and feelings. Things I never had to look for. Things that came to me.
But what if I made the effort?
What if I chose to really stick my nose in everyone’s business, scope out what was cracking all around the globe, scroll through lists made by successful people for successful people? What if I read more? Applied more? Just…exerted more?
Would I be even more able, more successful than I am now?!
Cor blimey. If that’s the case, then why not give it a whirl?
BECAUSE I LIKE BEING GOOD AT THINGS.
(Apparently brushing my hair is not one of them. Please excuse the picture.)
I just got me a blog feed starter-kit for rookies. And this is my first non-diary rambling, non-cryptic, non-reblog post….ever(?). Let’s see how this works out, shall we?
A FOR EFFORT!
Alternate blog post title: ”To all the teachers that said I was brilliant but never applied myself…tama nga pala kayo.”
Confetti over — my intern Alyssa Lapid for introducing me to all her fellow fashion blogger friends. I’m not at outfit and event posts yet, but…;)
