I mean that in the most uplifting positive way ever. For some reason? These last few days, on my blog have been very successful! March 26th, I hit my all time high for number of blog likes :). Thank you allll!
And when I feel inspired with feedback I feel the need to expand my knowledge on blogging, so I connected through a twitter chat last night with other fashion bloggers from 9-10. It was so inspiring, these people are experts on publicity and staying true to your blog. I feel asleep while studying fashion stuff for college, and it was on a good note because I just had style on my mind constantly.
As if it couldn’t get any better?! I don’t know why, but it did. I decided after the chat to contact someone I saw on twitter, @PrettyMeBlog, that wanted a guest blogger. And I got that too! She’s going to be in touch by the end of the month :).
I went in to my fashion class this morning, looking less than delightful.. because these late nights focused on fashion are catching up with me, but the good news continued.
My quiz was rescheduled. My teacher gave me back another one, with a 90 on it :). And the women that needed to get back to me about setting up the fashion camp this summer? E-mailed me about my ideas because it’s being finalized this week! She also wants me to help chaperone a Hip Hop class during the summer at night? No, dance is not my forte, but I’ll make it work for the higher than minimum wage pay check.
I went to highschool after, not realizing necessarily how great my luck has been. I had to quickly grab a meal from McDonalds, not exactly my norm.. And rush over to the next thing on my agenda, but when I finally had the chance to breath? I realised something. Sometimes you just don’t focus on the stuff that’s going right in your life, when you should.
I had to get a temporary filling put in, due to my never ending teeth problems. I sat in the waiting room writing up that e-mail for the women involved in fashion camp. The tooth was a pain -still in- but I got through it and still enough feeling in my face to talk, so it’s all good.
The phone rang and it happened to be a writer from the Evangelist. The Evangelist is the paper for the State capital’s Catholic Diocese in New York. They’d contacted me before because I went to a National Catholic Youth Conference in Indianapolis, in November, but I couldn’t dream of why they’d need me now..
The writer, it turns out, remembered my strong opinions on modest fashion. I personally, believe it comes along with the preppy territory… I can’t help but hate on exceedingly low necklines and love simple classic trends. She wants to interview me Monday all about my opinion, plans for college, and blog!
HOW DOES THIS HAPPEN?
I JUST SUBMITTED MY GUEST BLOG TO FROCKSTOCK AND GUESS WHAT THE TOPIC IS?
“Modesty is the best policy.”
It will be published on www.frockstock.blogspot.com on March 30th, please check it out. I plan on sending a copy of it to the writer at the Evangelist as well! I think what I’ve learned anything today it is that even if in 40 minutes I have to show up at work, in an annoying navy polo and uncomfortable black pants.. smiling as if K Mart is the place I always wanted to be… it’s okay. Because there will be things that happen, past K Mart, that make this all worth it. The things that happened to me today, could change my life. Or maybe they won’t. But the big Guy has a plan, it looks that way to me. And I’m thrilled that writing, fashion, and religion can be part of it.
