🌈Every time I go on a date with a man, I learn something new about myself. What insecurities I've been holding onto, what ideas I've created about them or myself before hand, and what I can do to move forward and make successful steps towards a fuller life. Yesterday I learned that I don't smile on social media or show "joy." It has been my goal to share a part of myself that feels it needs to be expressed and sometimes my persona is based on ideas from fashion and the magazine world. I grew up looking at fashion magazines and wanted to look like the flawless men who got to wear amazing clothing and be photographed. I've been to modeling agencies seeking representation in the past and haven't had any reactions, so I take it into my own hands to create the images that I want to create of myself. The way I want YOU to see me... edgy, artistic and passionate. There are some days when I don't feel that way at all and creating a staged photo shoot gives me excitement and makes me feel like I've done something that day to express myself and create. If I come across as Bitchy and moody, part of the reality is, I am. My Instagram self is only one version of who I really am, but it's the only side I'm really willing to let people see right now, the other parts are under construction... always. Be proud to be you, moody or happy, and express yourself. This is my version of PRIDE. Proud to be me, blue eyeliner and all... a fashion loving weirdo who loves color!
