First off, I'm in varsity/uni/college now. I no longer permanently live in Johannesburg. Cape Town has adopted me - slowly but surely I'm getting better at dressing for its temperamental weather, I know a few cool places to fix my cravings, and I have a pretty good sense of direction/distance/location. Uni is turning out to be a right bitch, and I'm very nearly wishing I didn't wish high school away so eagerly. "Nearly" being the operative word. I wouldn't trade my new found freedom for anything *heart eyes* Still, uni is seriously dampening my spirits. If you've known me a while, you'd know I'm very creatively/artistically inclined. I'll take art > business (read: anything really) Sunday to Sunday, 365. And yet, I've found myself sitting in lectures where words like "ceteris paribus" get thrown around all willy nilly. I could punch myself at the misery of it all. But this is my life now.
Plans for the re-up of Oh Kenzo could maybe be described as regressive. Not very exciting, but bare with me. When I started blogging, I was suuuuper into "curating" content, as opposed to creating my own. I was probably most authentic then, and not to say that I haven't been authentic all this time, but with this blog I've definitely been influenced by the direction the blogging community as a whole (#OOTD). When I started out, I was a little kid who knew nothing else but what she liked - fashion, art, photography and music - and that was literally the sum of my blog (which you can find here for a laugh). I found that all throughout last year I'd refer back to that and this blog looking for cool artists for my school art assignments. I thought it was pretty cool that I was interested in such cool stuff so long ago, and I'm still so into it today. That's a lot of so's.
Point is this: I'm going back to that sort of vibe. More reflective, more curating, more documentary, more personal, more self-indulgent I guess. MORE RAMBLING. I'm also hoping to switch up the look of the blog in due time, so stay tuned for all that good stuff.
P.S Notice how good I've become with limiting my use of ellipses! I wasn't even conscious of it while writing this post, and not one ellipsis in sight. Proud. I'm still a slave to the parentheses though :/
P.P.S. Follow me on Twitter which is where I do my rambling in small doses if you can't take all this heat, and my Instagram is pretty dope sometimes. Also, Snapchat is a biggie now: @kenzolm
