Experimenting with Instagram

Because what else can go wrong this year

Experimenting with Instagram

Social media is an amazing thing, but it can also be a detrimental place for your self-esteem and mental headspace. So why not experiment with it and see where it takes me!

I have always enjoyed fashion and putting clothes together, so I started a brand new instagram with simply that. Me, putting outfits together and posing in front of a self timer, what can go wrong! My idea here is to post a picture everyday and see what happens. Will hashtags propel me in a good direction or will simple one line captions push me to get more followers.

I think that the whole point of this experiment is to help me get out of the rut I've been in all of quarantine. I haven't ever liked the way I look or the way my body looks. Being stuck inside the house with a mother who judges your every move hasn't been helpful, so I think I've fell into a small hole and am trying to climb out. Maybe this instagram will help me feel somewhat better about myself, maybe this instagram page could lead to new opportunities (that I doubt). But I'm going to try to be consistent and push myself out of where I am comfortable. 2020 is almost over and maybe the next year will bring something greater, but one can only hope.

Maybe I'm putting too much hope into this project. I'm not really the most attractive person (and thanks to Tiktok, I feel even worse about myself!) so this will probably go nowhere. But maybe will a little time, a little faith and a little exposure, I can become something that I never thought possible.

Wish me good luck and hope for what this future leads me down. To becoming a name that's hopefully well known somewhere.

How Not To Go Insane During Summer

Holy cow. If you're like me, you are bored out of your mind taking summer classes all the way until August. Then just to come right back and take more classes for the Fall?

It is like I am going insane.


I mean, I am taking rigorous classes which allow me to devote a lot of my time towards them, but still...it is only two classes. By the time I get done, I have a whole half of the day full of nothing. I end up just sitting on my phone for most of the day instead of doing something practical.

So here I have compiled a list of how to keep yourself from not going crazy!

August rolls around, and school starts again...

Week One of Being A Freshie Again
Dear Freshman Me,

Most of us officially embarked on the journey of college. Yay! more school, how great is that? (Sarcasm people) This past week has been my first week at this amazing university. I've been finding all of the neat little short cuts that save me 10 minutes to get to a class, or just allow me to de-stress a little when I feel over whelmed.
