I suck at goodbyes. But I feel like we all kind of do. Goodbyes are either awkward or painful, and besides, you never truly know what is the right thing to say in that particular moment. Same case with hellos. Well, not with hellos itself but with all the things that come along. I’m talking about those weird introductions that usually happen on a first day at school when you don’t know anyone yet and you are asked to tell something about yourself in front of a whole class. And the worst part is that it sounds so easy when it’s actually a real pain in the ass. I’ve never been good at that. Every time I’m forced to tell someone a little bit about myself, I feel this urge to come up with something super interesting, super cool, super catching and efforetless sounding that at the same time would actually show people who I am as a person. In other words, I want to leave a nice impression. Because that’s the point of introducing yourself, right? But, of course, it never happens. I always mess up. It’s like a pre-programmed travesty. I always end up saying something stupid and irrelevant. But at the end of the day how can you decide which things about you are the most important? How can you sum up your whole self? I think that we as humans are too complicated for simple introductions.
So I’m skipping all the introduction crap and kicking things off with one of my favorite casual outfits to wear this season. It has denim, it has stripes, it has docs, so it’s basically perfect.
