As some of you have pointed out, I am not a writer. I graduated with a Bachelor's in Psychology. After that I went to Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising (FIDM). I didn't feel that I was fulfilled and proceeded to get my Masters in Social Work (MSW) at The University of Southern California (USC). I was lucky to meet some really wonderful friends while I was there. And yes, I miss them. After working for a non-profit organization for children in threat of being taken from their home for a couple years, I decided to go into fashion again. I worked retail for a few years at two women's boutiques. I loved both of my careers and miss them terribly.
I am now a stay-at-home mom, recently transplanted from The West Coast to be closer to family and for my husband's job. I love my son more than anything in the world and would gladly be his pillow for the next ten years. I take him to music class, gym class, and play dates. I am not just a shopaholic that sits in her closet all day. I am a mother, a wife, a daughter and a friend. Those classifications are the most important things to me.
This however, is not that important. I had no idea that people would reach out just to brutalize someone they don't even know. That people actually spend their time criticizing others publicly. My original post was a stream-of-thought that I wrote for ParkSlopeParents.com. I was the one who was feeling like I didn't fit in, not the other way around. I am in no place to pass judgment on others. I am a mom who understands what it's like to not sleep all night and feel like all you want to do is wash the peanut butter out of your hair. I know how it feels to not be able to do anything for yourself. That's why I started this blog, I thought that it would be something fun that I could do for me. Not to fight, or start a 'blog war' (with someone named sassy?).
Yes, I love clothes, and bags and other frivolous things. Seems like that's all you blogger critics are focused on. Please, if you don't like what I have to say move on. I don't expect everyone to like the things that I talk about. If you don't, engage me in an open and mature discussion. The thing is, I just moved here, I wasn't trying to ruffle feathers. I'm just trying to find my place. I hope you are happy in yours.
