A nonsensical update.
Unfortunately, as life would have it, I have been unable to spend more time on creative outlets such as this blog. When I do have free time, I am either lethargic, unmotivated or uninspired. Either that, or I feel the need to do extra work and stay even more ahead of schedule for my lesson planning – though I’m slowly figuring out that this becomes redundant as I find myself revising over the prep I had done the other week. Speaking of working in my free time, I don’t think I’ll ever get around to publishing my research in a journal as my access to resources has been completely cut off (due to not being a Monash student anymore – this is when you really appreciate how much free access to information we had as a student). I am completely annoyed with this, despite knowing that I can’t have possibly expected myself to work on a journal submission first year out on a new job and in deep water. Big, fat, URGH.
Term 2 holidays is in sight – my goal is to try and edit my research paper so that it is publish-worthy. I’m 99% sure it won’t happen because I have no resources. But I also want to be 99% sure that I gave it my best shot regardless.
I need to give myself a break.
Anyways, here are some oldies from the Gorman runway show at VAMFF earlier this year. Instead of opting for their more recent designs, I chose to wear an ancient dress I got from their outlet with a unique velvet-textured pattern all over. The dress is quite transparent so it has to be worn with a nude slip underneath.
I recall being completely blogger-struck seeing bloggers I had been following for god knows how long in the flesh. It also struck me quite bazaar how ordinary these people really were…and perhaps their worship and success based on – yes, for some, talent and genuine likability; or for most, an incredible knack at social media marketing, dressed with a gregarious personality and a nice frock. Whatever the case, it was an eye-opener, both inspirationally and cynically.
