Good Morning Darlings,
Do you want to know what is so strange? Sometimes I get down on myself for enjoying the things that I enjoy. Sometimes I truly believe that all of my hobbies are silly and girlish and that maybe I should grow up and enjoy hobbies such as, well I don't know, birdwatching or something.
You know sometimes people make me feel bad for being the way that I am and I have to tell you that I think it is not very nice and I also have to tell you that it is just dawning on me that I should make no apologies for who I am.
It's not that I like to eat and wear clothing. It's about so much more than that. It's about the process, the ideals, and the growth of the mind while doing these things. I'm not a dumb girl, I graduated from college magna cum laude with a freaking 3.8 GPA. I love to read. I love to write. And I can read and write about things that aren't so "superficial," but those are the things that I happen to really love.
In fact, if I could make a living writing about fashion and food and creating and cooking and dining and designing, I would drop everything and make that happen.
For a long time I really wanted to go to law school, I wanted to be a trial lawyer and prosecute the bad guys. Growing up, people used to tell me what a great lawyer I would be and even now, my ridiculous persuasion skills get me further than most. And for a while, I felt really guilty and sad about not having the funds or the state of mind to go to law school. But now I kind of realize that all I wanted was for people to take me seriously.
I guess what I mean to say is that I can't help what I am passionate about. I live to learn about new cooking techniques, new ingredients available to me, new designers, and well yes, new Bravo shows. And really I shouldn't feel bad about that. I should enjoy what I enjoy and let others enjoy what they enjoy. I am happy to share my passions and sarcasm tinted life with you and I would hope that if we ever meet and hang out, you would do the same for me.
So today here are the things I'm passionate about:
1. A new beginning
2. A slicked back, but very bushy ponytail (which I'm rocking today out of laziness, but WOOHOO it looks great)
3. A simple weekend in Maine turning into a "OMG what do I pack situation," (tune in tomorrow for that blog)
4. White anchovies. I can eat them by the pound. If you live in Spain, please send them to me.
Now, darlings, what are your passions? Do you ever feel under appreciated for your loves?
