I've been thinking a lot lately about how much I've changed. The phases I've gone through...the fashion trends I've attempted. At one point in high school I was really punk/a creation of Hot Topic- I have no pictures from that error unfortunately. I swear all I wore was my D.A.R.E. t-shirt, black eyeshadow, chuck taylors and pyramid belts with a black hoodie everyday! I'm not ashamed of it. It's still apart of me to this day. Atleast the D.A.R.E. shirt is. Then I turned Cheerleader and GO BIG BLUE! I find this amazing because although I was ahead of the pack then I didn't feel like I belonged. I wasn't being my true self. I don't need to rock heels every day to feel sexy. I feel just as awesome in my combat boots. I'm no longer trying to match the girls in the music videos and impress guys who wear throwback jerseys and Harlem shake til their arms fall off. See Below: Now that I've moved to California, I have the opportunity to be exactly who I've always been without seeking anyone's approval. Just as the saying goes, the cream(cool ridiculously everyday awesome mortals)always rises to the top. What do I mean by that you ask? Well the individuals that are truly there for you and love the "real you" will be there long after you've ditched the barbie doll persona and the relaxed hair or the remi weave. So I guess I want to say thanks. Thank you to my readers, youtube viewers and friends who have been with me along the way! I really appreciate you! I can't say that enough as I type this entire blog in class. Thanks for loving me when I was a scared closeted indie kid! So going a long with the theme of evolution, I'd like to hear some of your stories. Let it out guys! e-mail me pictures if you can of your changes and I'll feature it on MissRiot.com! E-mail all photos and stories to firstname.lastname@example.org I feel like these songs were appropriate: Beach House- "Used to Be" Memory House- "Lately"
