thoughts on blogging
there are two reasons for my absence: #1 i have been working my ass off, trying to get a nice portfolio for my university applications together. absurdly, i actually got invited to participate in the aptitude test at the university where i least expected it. i was shocked, to say the least. but since there hasn't been anything decided yet and there are two more to master, i've already put my focus back on creating.
#2 the internet and especially this small, fucked up rubric of fashion blogging have been boring me to death. i refuse to detect another post that is about what someone has just recently bought / someone needs to buy / what's inside someone's fucking bag / contests that force people into liking someone's facebook page / glossybox / ... you get the idea. when did people start to think it's cool to be someone else's advertising panel?
RUNAWAYFROMHOME THINKS IT'S SHIT TO WANT TO BUY SOMETHING ONE DOESN'T NEED.
it is possible to be interested in fashion, without being a dickhead but it's hard and you have to work on yourself and your consumer behaviour everyday. occasionally, i get sucked in too but i'll keep on digging myself out again.
because of all this annoyance, caused by these very unimportant blogs, i was close to shut down runawayfromhome. luckily i realized, i'm not a douchebag (i tend to forget this one) and my blog isn't about buying and consuming. it's about inspiration and awesomness, and therefore i allowed myself to stay.
if anyone knows any recommendable blogs, please let me know. i'm going to sort out my reading list and i doubt, there will be left more than 5-10 blogs.
