I've got spring fever all right...

May I just say how horrible of an idea it is to make projects and tests happen the week before spring break. I had a chem and a world unit test, trig and algebra quizzes, and a rough draft of an essay all due this week in addition to various band practices and the beginnings of training for leadership auditions (to be a marching band section leader). Between it all, the three of us have been trying to work out a new blog design (as you could probably tell and it's still a work in progress), manage to get some blog posts up, manage social media (we made a twitter account for TPF but we lost close to 40 followers on Instagram in one day), and I ended up coming home to find that I had a fever of 101.2 degrees on Thursday yet still made it to school on Friday #dedication. This week has been pretty awful and the only thing that has kept me sane is the knowledge that I'll soon be on a beach and away from all the stress for an entire week. A few upsides have been my new running routine I've established, my new high-waisted swimsuit, and not failing my chem test. However, my thoughts keep straying back to the blog. I've started to question if my style is even impressive enough to have a much as I love clothes, should I really be sharing my  style with the world? Are my efforts poured into this blog worth it? Lately I've been dressing simply; a button down and jeans or a skirt is dressing up. My style isn't super original or revolutionary. I pay for my own clothes, my parents refuse to allow me to buy a bag that costs $100, and I've re-evaluated my wishlist at least 20 times. I think my problem is that I can't keep up. I can't do all of my band practices and all of my classes and keep up with media and shopping and trends and style. On my 100 in 1001 list, one of my goals was to start a real journal and as hard as I try, I can never seem to keep a written journal for long. Instead, I think I'll use this blog as more of a journal showing those who choose to read, insight into my life. I may post something here and there about style, but I'd like to use this page to share and expose my opinions and personality to the world. I need to stop caring about how many people read these words and care more about what I get out of them. 

What do you think about my conundrum/blogger crisis?


  1. I really love your blog! The three of you write well-researched, well-written, and fresh posts. I was reading a blog post yesterday by a girl posting where to find in-expensive preppy clothes but had never used half of the places. It actually makes me mad sometimes; I really love the authenticity of your posts. By the way, I see you at school and I'm "oh I hope she doesn't see what I'm wearing" - I always think you're dressed so nice and so fresh. Please, please, please, keep it up!
    All the changes have been great, I just made sure to follow your twitter!

    1. Well thanks! We do our best but it's just getting harder and harder with school and auditions and I'm sure you know from experience, but a tee and yoga pants (gasp) has become more common than my "cute" stuff. Thanks for such positive feedback and sticking by us and of course, following us on twitter ;)
