Mana metode | My method

Par savu ārējo izskatu ir jābūt pašpārliecinātam. Ir jājūtas savā ādā, nevar izlikties kaut kas, kas neesi. Bet kā lai paplašina robežas, ja nevar nedaudz izlikties un paekspermentēt? Vajag izmēģināt, ko jaunu priekš sevis. Tas jaunais tad būs komfortzonas paplašinājums.
Man bieži liekas, ka nu viss, esmu sevi izsmēlusi, te vairs nekādi komplekti nesanāk. Un tad ir dienas kad es uzvelku džinsus un džemperi, tās ir manas zemākās dienas. Lai nonāktu pie laba outfita, viss sākās ar vienu apģērba gabalu, piemēram, šo uzticamo second-hand džemperi. Dažreiz, ļoti grūtos gadījumos, sanāk mazo modes skati mammai uztaisīt, velkot mugurā visu pēc kārtas un tad ejot līdz spogulim, un vēl mammai atrādīt. Tas vienmēr dod rezultātus!

One need to be confident about your looks. One have to feel good in your own skin, and can't pretend to be someone else. But how can you expend your boundaries without little bit of pretending and experimenting? I need to try something new for myself. That new thing then can be comfort zone's extension. Which is always good.
It often seems to me that I have depleted myself, there's no more outfit combinations I can come up with. And then comes that days, when I wear jeans and a sweater, those are my lowest days. To have good outfit everything starts with choosing one clothing item, for example, this trusty second-hand sweater. Sometimes, in very difficult cases, I do little fashion show for my mom, I put on everything that could make something and then going to the mirror and to show it off to my mom. This always gives results!

Ir forši | That's cool

Grūti tagad apzināties, ka kādreiz būs vēl citādāk. Pēdējo nedēļu notikumi mani ir izsituši no sliedēm un liek vēlvairāk raizēties par nākotni. Tagad esmu pieaugušais ar autovadītāja tiesībām(!). Bet joprojām turos pie domas, ka man vēl 16 un skolas beigšana, un "īstā dzīve" aiz kalniem. Tā sen vairs nav un es mēģinu izbaudīt visu, ko vēl sniedz salīdzinoši bezrūpīgā dzīve.
Tomēr daudz kas mainās. Un tas ir forši. Šeit kaut kas, kas liks padomāt. Nav par ko!

It's hard to realize that this won't last and someday everything will be different. The events of the past week had pulled out the rug under my feet and made me worry about the future even more. Now I am adult with a driver's license(!). But I can't let go the thought about me being sixteen,when graduating school and starting "the real life" was far far far away. That is long gone and I now try to enjoy what relatively carefree life offers me. 
However a lot is changing. And that's cool. Here is something that will make you think. You're welcome!


Let everything happen to you, beauty and terror. Just keep going. No feeling is final.
— Rainer Maria Rilke



The reason we struggle with insecurity is because we compare our behind-the-scenes with everyone else’s highlight reel.
— Steven Furtick

Good, better, best. Never let it rest. Until your good is better and your better is best. — Tim Duncan




Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can.
— Arthur Ashe 


If you want to succeed in your life, remember this phrase: That past does not equal the future. Because you failed yesterday; or all day today; or a moment ago; or for the last six months; the last sixteen years; or the last fifty years of life, doesn’t mean anything… All that matters is: What are you going to do, right now?
— Anthony Robbins



If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.

Vajadzība | The need

Vēlviens lielisks second-hand atradums. Tam vajadzēja pieskaņot arī bildes. Un jā, es zinu pāris Metallica dziesmas, bet bāc, paskatieties uz to apdruku. Perfekti.
Letāli nepieciešams vairāk laika šādām izdarībām Photoshopā un ārpus tā. Kaut varētu nopirkt laiku...
_____
Another great second-hand find. I need to match the pictures to the shirt itself. And yes, I know few Metallica songs, but, damn, look at that print. Perfection.
The need for artsy stuff like this in Photoshop and outside it, is lethal. I wish I could but time...
