"GROWN UP THINGS"

I love posting on The Designer Rat but it seems that I lost inspiration last week.


Can you believe that it's already November? It seems like it was just yesterday that I entered high school but it's actually already been 2 months. In less than 2 months it will be 2016, last week I was speaking to my sister about how the older you get, the faster time passes. My mom would constantly tell me to not worry so much about time because as you grow, time just seems to fly by. Of course, when I was younger, I couldn't believe it, simply because I was so anxious to grow up and do "grown up things". Although, I'm not going to lie, I'm still excited to grow up and do "grown up things". There is a certain excitement to always being busy on doing what you love the most. Last week, the week that I didn't post on here, I thought on many ideas, one being that I'm going to launch a youtube account where I post interviews with different people in fashion, people that I have a strong connection with, Lady Gaga being one of those people, I don't want to mention dates simply because I'm not sure when It'll be happening. It can be tomorrow, next week, in a year, who knows.

Lady Gaga is an icon to me, I grew up looking at her fashion, listening to her music. There is this time, when I was in elementary school, that I was walking around with my friend (who I deeply miss but is long lost) and we talking about design outfits for Lady Gaga, one of the outfits being a "aquarium dress". Basically, the dress was customized to fit your body only and it was made of bulletproof glass and had to layers so that you would pour water in there and actually have fishies just swimming around. Looking bad at that idea, it probably wasn't a bright one, simply because it probably weighed, a lot.

Besides being a fashion icon, Gaga has empowered this generation's youth to be themselves. Accepting yourself and understanding that different is okay, you don't need to be a carbon copy of the rest of the kids and she did that all while being emotionally unstable. She has really helped me to listen to others, even if I don't understand their situation, that's the way everyone should be, it's the "grown up" thing to do.

p.s. it's pretty ironic I used being a grown up as this post's theme simply because some grown ups are complete fucking idiots.
