The style I had 10 years ago? First thing to mention here is that I was 11 years old and in between 5th/6th grade. The second thing of importance is that my style was pretty much a lack thereof. Who really knows how to properly dress at that age, though? It was before a flat iron, before a tweezer, before makeup and before sports bras. Before boobs, even. Actually, I was going through the awkward early stages of developing some, and I remember one day wearing a t-shirt with a Volkswagen Beetle on it. A boy I was working on a project with in the library pointed out that the wheels were right over my nips. It was awkward for everyone involved, but mostly for me because I went home upset I was becoming a real girl and embarrassedly asked my mom to take me for my first trainer. During the winter, I wore fleece pull-overs from Old Navy that I decided I hated a year later because they weren’t from one of the boutiques everyone at school shopped at (when I went through my two year JAP phase, which then segued into my two year Hot Topic phase). I had a horrible periwinkle blue button-down with a skirt for graduation, and an even worse purple dress with a… wait for it… short sleeve, purple, MESH coverup for 5th grade prom. I shit you not. There are pictures that have yet to be burned.
So I may be corny for quoting a (wonderful, award-winning, life-changing) Broadway musical. I may even be cornier for wanting the words ‘forget regret’ tattooed across my wrist since I’m thirteen years old. But it’s taken on a whole meaning in my life, to live without regret. It’s inevitable that I’ll make mistakes but focusing on them and wishing things went differently will only draw negative energy into my life. We accept our follies, learn from them and move on. Even more so, if you step on the side of caution constantly, you’re hindering yourself from getting to experience everything you possibly can. In an ideal world, I’d live completely on the edge and try it all. I’m still learning to get there. Oh and I passed out early last night, which is why I am posting this today, so you get day 5 and 6 all in one! Hoorah!
According to iTunes, my top played song is “Bad Romance” by Lady Gaga but I wouldn’t call it my favorite. It was a toss up between this and “Let Down” but I finally went with “Karma Police” by Radiohead since it’s helped me out through some very tough times. Pretty sure everyone has heard this, but I included the mp3 just cause.
i think i will get back into writing real things instead of just reposting pictures i find cute or funny or awesome or inspiring. not that pictures don’t mean anything, but i want to let the words bubble and boil over the pot because they’re so full and ready to jump. but i will still reblog some pictures, just because that’s what tumblr is good for.
