My Preface: Okay, first of all, this is why I'm not a fashion blogger. Number 1: I love clothes but I have nowhere near the fashion sense of lots of fabulously-clothed ladies out there in blogland. Number 2: I don't plan ahead enough. I just tell my husband, in the spur of the moment when we're running late for a hockey game, "hey, take a picture on my iphone quick!" And number 3: I do not do my hair + makeup perfectly everyday to correlate with the clothes + accessories I'll be sporting. In fact, sometimes I don't even do my hair + makeup at all if I'm running late. I love clothes. And fashion. And accessories, big time. I'm just not a fashion blogger. And I'm okay with that :)
Either way, it's finally the right time and weather for some of my favorite fall fashions - boots, sweaters, and scarves:
I'm a really sarcastic person, and the older I get the more I think that sarcasm comes out. Personally, I don't think I can help it because I come from a family that is very much like that, too; and it's an attitude that I find funny. Each and every person has their own sense of humor, right? Well, mine happens to be extremely dry and might come off as bitchy to someone who doesn't understand the sarcasm. Sometimes I feel like people completely don't get my sarcasm and when I might say something to be funny, people instead interpret it as negative, or snotty, or just plain mean. So I was explaining this to P the other night and he says, "Sam, sometimes even I don't understand your sarcasm."
It made me realize that, although we definitely don't need to always worry about what other people think, we need to be conscientious of how our words (or actions) might be interpreted by other people. Although I'm certainly not trying to sound like a complain-y little biotch, I need to be aware that people outside of my circle of close loved ones might not completely understand who I am, where I'm coming from, or the joke that I'm trying to make. In which case, I should probably be careful about the words I say or the attitude I have when I'm around other people. I don't know; this is hard for me because I also think it's important to be yourself and not change who you are just to please others. What are your thoughts on this?
So I guess keep this in mind when you're visiting my bloggy blog, too. I might sound like a Negative Nancy with a stick up her hoo-hah, but I'm probably just making a joke :)
