Another thing I wanted to note in this ramble of a post is that although I’ll complain and go off onto tangents, talking about my love of film or the art in fashion, there are such massive things going on in the world. I often think about my contribution. Is talking about fashion and photographing such things a good contribution to the world? What does that do? Does it do anything at all? If I sit in front of a camera talking about my favourite products of the month or books I’ve recently read, does that do anything? Would be time be better served creating poetry that discusses the events of today, but creating a political message online, by further aiding the protests in conversation in order for good to triumph over evil. Of course, I feel my time would be better spent if I did my part in aiding the world. I’m often stuck in a never ending existentialist thought bubble when it comes to the events of today, and how political we can get. Our voices are our most powerful weapons, especially in today’s society, so what am I using my voice for? I know that when it comes to my beliefs I won’t back down, never have. I’m open to what others have to say, but I also know what I stand for and why. I often speak out on social media platforms (specifically, twitter because that’s where all the fights happen) but should I bring that here, to this site. I seem to have come to the conclusion that if I feel the need to speak out about a particular subject here, I will. I’ll speak about what I want to speak about. I also know that these thoughts cannot consume me and that we do need a little bit of light in our world. And perhaps to me, that’s writing about the things I enjoy, because that brings me peace, and calm, and to you, it might be reading about these things. Reading about art, fashion, lifestyle, today’s trends, or even fanfiction. We all need an outlet right, and this site will continue to be a community that we can all share as an outlet. I’ve said before that I’ve wanted to do more than just the usual ‘top ten ways to wear this’ or ‘to do that’, but perhaps I was too harsh when I first suggested the topic and didn’t quite get my point across, as I keep feeling the need to revisit it. I know people enjoy that type of work, and I also know that people enjoy my type of work, as we all need a solace, somewhere in which we feel comforted and happy.
And perhaps that’s why when I’m in a rut I don’t visit my own site. Because I don’t want my negativity invading the place where I find solace.
