Musings: 10/28/2020

 I remember when I first started this blog...

I kept it to myself

for years.

I used it as an outlet,

a space to post things that interested and inspired me.

a place to yell out into the darkness if you will,

unsure and unbothered by if anyone was to hear. 

I felt that if someone stumbled upon my little slice of the internet it was for a reason 

something brought them here and I was okay with that.

It felt intimate, although I was posting freely onto the world wide web.

I only mentioned it to a select few that knew me.


I feel over the years I have lost the excitement to post

possibly due to life's happenings

living, loving

falling in and falling out

losing interest, regaining and losing it again


I also think that I started to think too much into things

my musings became fewer 

people would question posts

or mention that they checked out my blog

which always felt a little weird 

because I don't always like to feel seen.

it can feel like having someone read your journal and then pick apart the entries

but anyway

I say all of that to say

simply,

I miss writing.

I miss releasing and posting fun things and not overthinking it so much

so here's to more of the former and less of the latter.

*NEW* Inspire the TRIBE x Afro-Dite Puzzle/ Sticker Bundle

 

I love puzzles.
I love that they allow me to slow down 
and focus on what's right in front of me. 
they provide a way to disconnect, 
challenge yourself 
and they are equally as fun to complete on your own or with a friend.

so, I created my own.
(and it's pleasantly and surprisingly harder to complete than I expected)

get yours here.

Happy Birthday Dad!


you were my first best friend.
you taught me what love is.  
you lead by example
and you are a light to everyone who knows you.
hardworking, god-fearing, humble.
you nurtured my creativity from a young age 
and helped me to become the fearless artist that I am today.
you inspire me.
you are the definition of selfless love.
the way that you put your family first is admirable and never goes unnoticed.
the world is a better place because of you.

and I'll never let you go a day without knowing just how much you're loved.

Justice for George Floyd.


“... the young people are the ones who most quickly identify with the struggle and the necessity to eliminate the evil conditions that exist.” 
― Malcolm X


the energy in the world is so heavy right now
I can not knowingly and willingly add to that load
today will be met with introspection and disconnection
from all that adds on

Day ?? of Social Distancing: Passion Projects x Sex and the City Marathons

so,
 after who knows how many days of 
waking, 
working, 
grocery shopping, 
online window shopping,
dog walking,
exercising,
painting,
plotting,
cooking,
napping,
scrolling,
and overall sitting 
in my apartment... 
I've finally decided to dive head first 
into a long time passion project of mine. 
It's something I've been hinting at for years, 
and I finally have the time and the motivation to make it happen. 


today is the day I will finish this project.

it's very personal to me, and
I can't wait to share it with you all.

Daydreamin' And I'm Thinking of You

I found a site where I could create fashion sets again 
(RIP Polyvore).

I promise once all of this passes 
I'm wearing every item that I own, 
and I'm having more fun/ being more experimental 
with my style.

Alina Baraz & Galimatias - Show Me

touch me with no hands
hold me with your eyes
unwind me with your mind tonight

Musings: 3/20/2020

photo via @letssweettalk

imagine having the opportunity to go back in time
five, ten, twenty years,
knowing everything that you know now.
would you live your life the same 
or would you apply the knowledge you've acquired 
to change/ affect the outcome?

the latter, right?

it seems so simple, 
and yet, 
there are people who would rather 
shrink themselves 
to try to make an old way of living, 
old acquaintances, 
situations,
 relationships, 
etc 
- 'fit'.

it is a phenomenon that I could never get behind.
I picture it to be an existence that is so 
uncomfortably steeped in uncertainty/ insecurity.

how can you have learned, 
experienced 
and grown 
so much and expect to still 
be able to operate under the 'guise 
that you have not?

when you outgrow something you'll feel it.

I believe in wanting more for yourself

don't sell yourself short.

Musings: 3/16/2020

a moment to step back,
reflect

my travel plans have been cancelled 
due to the COVID-19 virus...
 while I'm (super) bummed about it
I will use this time wisely, and plan 
for something bigger and better once this all 
blows over

I enjoy being introspective
and this hard pause 
that we are all being forced to take right now 
is the perfect opportunity to get 
back in touch with 
self.

the dreams I have for my life are so vivid
I can't help but to be excited when I think about the future
life is good
