Introvert

“You always see in movies and in books that an introverted character eventually breaks out of their shell because one person changes them and if I’m being honest, I hate that. I hate the idea that something is wrong with introversion. Yes, socializing is good, but not a lot of people understand how physically and emotionally draining it is to be in crowds of people or to be told to “let loose” and “have fun.” As an introvert, my idea of fun is sitting on my couch reading a book, and listening to the rain as it hits the roof. If that’s boring to other people, then that’s fine, but I shouldn’t have to feel bad just because I have a different way of having fun. No one should.

Introversion shouldn’t be scolded, it should be embraced and celebrated and people who are introverts shouldn’t have to feel bad about it. There is no need to try and change something about us we can’t help.” – yatoofthedawn on tumblr

A little something I read a while back on Tumblr and decided to share it because I wish everyone I know would understand this.

 

TV SHOW: Marvel’s The Defenders Teaser

Last Tuesday we were lucky enough to come by a little short teaser disguised as an elevator camera footage showing us the four heroes from Hell’s Kitchen (Matt Murdock/Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Danny Rand). Even though the video was rather short for my taste, I can’t complain over my excitement after watching this four characters finally in the same space.

Jessica, Luke, Matt (who is not very good at hiding his identity to be honest) and Danny enter the elevator and wait while Jessica spots the camera and breaks it.

But there’s more to it. On the right corner we can see a date of release and on the upper left corner the numbers 23.253.120.81. that if you write them on the browser it directs you to the New York Bulletin, Daredevil’s Karen Page (and Ben Urich on the first season) place of work.

But what interests more about this page are the covers archive were we can see some news that apparently viewers missed.

Fashion: The Man From U.N.C.L.E

The Man From U.N.C.L.E (2015) provided such a great costume design by Joanna Johnston (Love Actually, Forrest Gump, and Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade.) I loved the fashion in this movie so much I decided to talk about it over a collection I created in Polyvore.

30’s, 40’s, 50’s, and partially 60’s were really problematic years when discussing social rights. Racism, sexism and discrimination were alive and pumping. But if there’s something I would save from those years (besides some great movies) is the fashion. I have always been a fan of the classic vintage style.

The famous movie that recreates the famous TV Show of the same name is settled in the 1960’s. Joanna Johnston talked about the many inspirations she took from Vogue issues from 1966 and 1968 as well as specifics such as Victoria Vinciguerra’s style referenced by Marisa Berenson and Veruschka.

While Illya Kuryakin’s famous turtlenecks also appeared in the movie being used by Armie Hammer (I love him so much!) the hat, for example, was inspired by Jean-Paul Belmondo’s hat in À bout de souffle (Breathless).

The movie displays a variety of colors commonly used in the 60’s even though a lot of what Johnston used to dress Elizabeth Debicki (Victoria) and Alicia Vikander (Gaby) are pieces of clothes you can find nowadays in your local extra expensive brand shop. Gaby’s earrings, for example, are Marni and her sunglasses, House of Holland.

Both women style is also very different. While Gaby, a communist young mechanic from East Europe dresses in these very clear, fresh, young colors with a young style. Victoria’s wardrobe is almost exclusively black and white throughout the film.

A while ago after watching the movie I felt terribly inspired and decided to do a collection based on the movie. I’ll leave you with it!

When you want to do everything but you can’t do nothing

I always considered myself to be a very creative person, or at least someone who wants to carry that trait. That’s why, in some way, I love social media. It allows you to express yourself in any way you want to. I love taking pictures in instagram, creating themes, having fun with the colors I use in my pictures (even if I’m not so good at it). I also love commenting about stuff, I love joking on twitter, upload screen caps or creating gif of some random tv show I’m currently watching, or simply just retweeting someone else creativeness. I use Tumblr since I’m 16 years old, I think it’s an incredible platform for inspiration, as well as Pinterest. I also love YouTube and I have some favorite youtubers myself (I have always thought about creating a channel). Last but not least I love reading and writing in WordPress. Even if I don’t do it often.

But usually in these platforms I take the place of spectator. I like following people who show their work, inspirations or self to the world. It’s something I would like to do without being so worried about what people think, a characteristic social anxiety feature.

Sometimes, I can’t even blame social anxiety because I think it’s something deeper than that. Something in myself and how I can never seem to be able to create things even though I feel inspired and my mind screams about it. It’s never something specific. Just the pure thought of wanting to create something, to do something. I wish I could put a name to the feeling.

When I started university I chose journalism over cinematography because I loved movies but what I loved more about it was to talk about it. I wanted to be able to do something about it and now that I’m studying journalism I think that somehow I have lost that. I love talking about entertainment. I would love to work with something like that and lately every time I get an… let’s call it art attack (lol yeah, like Art Attack from Disney) I found myself wanting to create something related to what I’m studying.

I’ve been thinking about how to approach this idea but honestly, I don’t even know. Because apparently a job doesn’t seem to be an option since I can’t seem to get one. My aunt told me that I should take it by my hands. If I want to do journalism about things I love or interest me I should do it myself. Experiment. She told me I should create a YouTube channel and to be honest the idea always tempted me but I can’t get my head around the idea because I’m really conscious about myself and others. I can’t stand the idea that people from my university or people from high school might see it and laugh about it. I know it’s something stupid. I shouldn’t care what other people think, everybody tells me that but I simply can’t? That’s the way I am. I can’t allow myself to be the way I like because I’m too self-conscious about others and what are they thinking.

Anyway… There’s no point in this post really. I stopped going to therapy a couple of months ago and I just needed to put my feelings down somewhere.

Have you ever felt so self-conscious that it stopped you from doing thing you really wanted to? Let me know in the comments, I’m interested in reading you 🙂
