With the elections right around the corner, I wanted to take a moment to talk about how we address and represent ourselves, politically.
Representation in politics. Being political. Both terms that can be presumably defined out of a history or government class’s textbook. I know I am not the only one who was intimidated by history class, all the terminology and broad concepts going right over my head. I know I am not the only one who felt intimidated by the peers around me who absorbed and understood concepts, events, important issues, etc. so quickly. I know I am also not the only one who never considered themself political until this year (even when I was more politically involved than I presumed). Politics are intimidating.
There are plenty of standards and expectations around attire, from what you are expected to wear at work – no exposed tattoos, colored hair, and earrings – what is decided to be “feminine” attire versus “masculine”, what types of bodies can wear certain types of clothing, etc.
There are so many struggles creators face beyond the ones that I listed, however these are a few I wrote down out of a thoughtful moment. Every career path comes with its challenges. These are just a few that I face in mine. However, being able to create is something I will never give up, and it is something worthwhile. I hope you all are able to hold on to that same creative hope and energy, even when life is trying to hold you back.

Getting ready for the day looks different for everyone. For some people, getting ready for the day begins with teeth brushing, face washing, and a good glam session. Makeup and hair can take TIME and LESS SLEEP, which is one of the reasons I stopped wearing makeup. However, I have minimized my makeup routine, making it easier, less of a time commitment, and it is also lighter on the skin. It can easily be adjusted to more or less, as well.
