Even though I become a bit more comfortable and confident with myself everyday, I can't suppress the feeling of wanting to be cool person, or at least look like a cool person. You know those people, the ones who look like a walking glossier or madewell ad, the ones who roll out of bed, toss on an outfit and still look better than you, the people who manage to look graceful while eating a salad ( I just shove everything in my mouth and almost always end up with something in my teeth #classy). 

While I wholeheartedly know and accept that I'm not the coolest kid on the block, with the new school year starting I'm taking advantage of first impressions to trick people into thinking I'm as cool as I wish I was. I'm taking an advertising class this semester and right off the bat I knew that my professor was gonna be one real cool dude, and that my goal for the semester would be to convince him that I'm cool too. I'm not kidding when I say that I put together this outfit for the sole purpose of coming off as this girl who is creative and chill and has her life put together. 

I'm pretty sure that my façade was holding up pretty well until I nearly fell down the stairs in our classroom.

But at least the professor knows my name now. Baby steps, y'all. b a b y  s t e p s.
