August S(h)ocks



(tunic: H&M Young - socks, shoes, blazer: H&M - scarf worn as headband: vintage - belt: TW)

Summer is gone and I know that's a fact I just gotta accept, but I fucking hate it. It was shockingly cold today (about 15°C; I removed leggings for the photos which resulted in my legs almost freezing) and I realized I'd have to fight as hell to prevent depression from creeping back this winter.

I can't fucking stand pretentious people with their fucking pretentiousness, their fakeness written all over them and especially their idiotic writing in the "Noun. Adjective. Adjective. Adjective." manner. I despise it so much I can't even begin to express it. It makes me wanna puke.

I finally finished reading Absurdistan by Gary Shteyngart. Highly recommended!

It still happens to me sometimes that some little, seemingly insignificant words or actions shake me for a moment and make me wonder about things that should come naturally, like my self-esteem and confidence. I have a history of not being happy, of not feeling good about myself and having zero self-appreciation, despite the whole bunch of qualities I could and should appreciate about myself (but hadn't been aware of them before). I've only recently learned to feel good (no, great) being myself, to love and respect myself; this might sound strange to "normal" (ha) people, but yes, I actually had to learn it. And that's probably why I treasure it even more and guard it with a force that's stronger than Chuck Norris.

Why am I writing about all this personal stuff here? Why would anyone want to read that?

Actually, I don't care if anyone reads it. I just wanna say it.

Oh yesss, today I was freezing walking home with bare legs. I was angry at the whole world. I can see it coming, freaking autumn. You and me should move to Thailand or something, we'd be happy in summer forever (at least I would:)). I like this combo, shoes are so cute and I love knee high socks. Just wore them the other day (hello strange stares) for the first time.

It's harder to love ourselves than to love others. Find your strengths and focus on them. Then you can progress towards your weaknesses.
