Silly Inspirations

Did you know my old blog was named Silly Inspirations?

I now have a self- titled blog but who am I kidding? I am still silly, and I still get silly with my inspirations. A few weeks ago I stumbled upon a design, graphic and DIY blog while looking through photography articles on the net. Few days after I started added graphics, texts and clip arts to my blog pictures (like in my posts here and here). I also almost bought a web host so I can customize my blog even more (I hate being so limited so I might still do that). I love the design and contents of Shrimp Salad Circus, Her New Leaf and Pugly Pixel. After being so pumped up with my new blog interests, I was updated with new outfits by Camille Co, Kryz Uy and Tricia Gosingtian (to name a few), and, for the nth time, I wallowed in my desire to do serious fashion blogging. Then I saw new rendering techniques from Alex Hogrefe and Nomeradona and  I wished I have more time to do Architecture outside of my own regular job. I want to produce new designs and renderings that I can call my own!

So being inspired is a good thing. The bad thing? I did not know which to do first or which to concentrate on I ended up doing nothing for almost two weeks.

I guess I am trying too hard to make everything right that I never got around to accomplishing something. I left my old blog because I want to leave behind traces of myself with bad taste for photography and photo editing (which is also the reason why I MOVED TO A NEW LOOKBOOK ACCOUNT). I also want to dissociate myself from the girl who kept on ranting about thesis 90% of the time. Well, that and I just want to start anew. I already have a new camera but I am still not satisfied with the outfit photos I am producing. I have my own domain but I am not satisfied with this blog – contents and design. Being a perfectionist sucks.

Then I saw an article from one of my favorite blogs to date, Shrimp Salad Circus. It gives tips on how to live a good life.

The  message I would like to share, because it stuck to me more than anything else, is simple:

Remember that beauty isn’t the same thing as perfection.

It makes a lot of sense.
