I am starting a new blog. In some ways it will be more personal (it is named after me after all), but in other ways it will be less. i need a space to talk about the things I enjoy and think are awesome, because somewhere along the way I lost a place for me to exist comfortably, on the internet, in the physical world and in my own headspace.
So, I just want this blog to reflect what I'm doing, writing and thinking about. It is definitely not going to be a personal style blog, more a living embodiment of Stuff White People Like. I am proud and happy of what I wrote at Hipster Musings for so many years, but it just feels right to move on. I am both a struggling newbie and a grumpy old woman. Like Charlie from The Perks of Being A Wallflower, I am both happy and sad and still trying to figure out how that can be.
I need a space that can grow with me and let me be myself, instead of trying to be a well-liked 'personality.' My life is more about drinking french press coffee in the mornings and cooking with kale and passively perusing the internet these days instead of frequent comments and likes. I think that as long as I can make writing and magazine publishing my career, and maybe getting laid sometime, I'll be doing groovy.
...and I'm wearing a Marilyn Manson shirt right now.
