Happy 20th birthday to me! Besides having to change my age on all of my social media, today marks a new chapter in my life (the end of my teen years and the beginning of my twenties/real adulthood) and I am both excited/nervous as all hell for it. But bring it on ?
Sometimes when a city speaks to you, you have to listen. And lately, when it comes to fashion, I feel like Barney Stinson’s motto of “new is always better” isn’t really what Cape Town’s been saying to me. Sometimes old is good. Sometimes something so old that it’s not even yours is better.
Hello friends! Like Bryson Tiller, I’m back and I’m (hopefully) better. Since we last chatted: school is back, JHB is out, CPT is in, stress is also back in, and there was a weave that didn’t get to see this blog at all (oops). I also took my plan about 2016 as written here more seriously – I have a budget that can make the Excel Gods cry, I’ve said “no” a lot, I’ve only missed one lecture (it was Friday at 3pm, give me a break), I’ve written a bit more for some upcoming posts and I’m working with more creatives! Most notably, the amazing Samsung Social Media Star, Sibu Mpanza, who’s been taking lovely pictures of me recently!
After a year of effectively living by myself in a new city, I feel like I’ve got this whole adulting thing on lock.
And that was the single greatest joke I’ve told in 2015.
“Black is modest and arrogant. Black is lazy and easy – but mysterious. But above all, black says this: ‘I don’t bother you – don’t bother me.’” – Yohji Yamamoto
This was alternatively titled, “Why are you wearing all black?” “I’m mourning myself”, but I found that a little too long, albeit incredibly apt for the last few weeks. Although my <a href="http://www acheter viagra chine.instagram.com/foyinog” onclick=”__gaTracker(‘send’, ‘event’, ‘outbound-article’, ‘http://www.instagram.com/foyinog’, ‘Instagram’);”>Instagram has been all happiness and sunshine, my Twitter has been a better indication as to how I’ve been lately, filled with melodramatic postings accompanied by memes to maintain my carefree aesthetic.
