I’m going to make this post real. I’m going to make this post without added pictures or the usual soundcloud links I always add in. Because individuality is something that is of more importance to me than any fashion, hair, makeup, or photography could ever be. Let me ask you this, HOW are you supposed to make a difference in any of those fields if you don’t know how to be yourself. You physically cannot. It’s easy to look at something someone else has done or is doing and say “I can do that too!” Sure, physically you can, but is that being you or is that being a product of someone else? There’s a huge difference between being inspired by and between blatantly copying. Personally I believe the most important thing in life is being able to look in the mirror and know that the person looking back is 100% you (sprinkled with the people in your life you inspire you and the things you love to do of course). What’s the point in trying to be someone else. Honestly I’ve contemplating playing SPORTS just because other people do. Then I have to sit back and think, is this really me? Absolutely not.

Ever since elementary school I decided I would try as hard as I could to not dress like anyone else. Some days I would be terrified to go to school because I was afraid someone would have a comment to say about my striped tights under my shorts. The point is I worried for no reason. Those classmates didn’t care and the important thing was I always stayed true to myself. I’m going of on a tangent here, but always remember do things because you want to do them, not because someone else does them.
