I'd rather be hated for who I am, than loved for who I am not.

joannaladrido 's Thoughts:

On Having A Little Fun: Here's the thing... my tendency to always strive for something more, to achieve something more and to be more than I can potentially be has always been a struggle. I was venting out about how I never really just let things be... There's always something I am working at- a goal I need to reach and once I've reached it, it seems to be not enough and again the cycle continues. I was discussing my options earlier with someone who probably see things in me that I often tend to overlook (aka. one of my mirrors) and this person suggested that I let loose. He made me realize that life doesn't always have to be in perfect order and sometimes, it helps to just be... a useful piece of advice, and perhaps something I could work on...so here it goes...
I'm trying something new. I'm letting my hair loose and instead of the traditional outfit post, I tried something a bit more risque this time, and well, I had a blast doing it. It was fun to act like a fool and try to be creative and less stiff... granted I probably would still revert back to my neurotic self (26 years of being how I am isn't going to change overnight) but give me credit. This is something totally not "me" all glam-ed up, fierce and fabulous. I went onto the edgier side and went all punk rock grunge and what better way to represent that than to pay tribute to the '90s, where plaid was cool, 90210 became more than just a zip code and when rock music was somewhat considered a soul-scarred catharsis. If any single group embodied what 1990's music was all about, it was Nirvana. You see, when they entered the music scene, all bets were off and '90s rock became more vital, more jaded and perhaps more reflective of the emotions and concerns held by the emerging generation of hood rats reaching adulthood aptly labeled Generation X, a far cry from the baby boomer quality and shallow hair metal. Nirvana created a completely different genre called "grunge" and they made it look so effortless... and while the legion of flannel-wearing, distortion pedal stompers made sense to those seeking thoughtful musings and moshpit soundtracks, few bands could articulate inarticulately so well in a manner that rocked so hard as Nirvana. I know that most people think I listen to pop-glam music but a random thing about me is that my taste in music seems to have drastic shifts (and I am rarely one to admit to my secret love affair for punk rock) but in this case I am making an exception and as a tribute to that, I took my friend's advice and gave in to chaos and what better way to do it than in a baggy flannel shirt and combat boots which are ultimately, as stated, fashion pieces that are representative of the "anti-JL."
