Pretend you're a character in an indie film.

Pretend you're a character in an indie film.

I have gotten way too obsessed with online shopping which obviously isn't productive, so I decided to channel my shopping addiction towards making Polyvore sets. I'm not really great at making them, but I thought it would be fun to try anyway. This set features two trends that I've been really into: red and raw hems. I already have a black button-up denim skirt, but I've been itching to buy one with a raw hem like the one above. I'm also looking for some sunglasses with red lenses. I've never owned a pair of glasses that I have liked, but this trend is too cool to pass up!

So... pretend you're a character in an indie film. What does that even mean? Well, I really only named the set that because there's an "admit one" ticket, pencil shavings, and a paint-swatched background. With the latter two elements being artsy, I thought I would go through that "indie/tumblr/hipster" rout to name the set. However, I think the title could just be simplified to Live like you're in a movie, meaning that you should avoid living stagnantly! It's so incredibly easy to accept your current conditions. "Oh, it's not that bad." Never settle for less. You only live life once so you might as well make the best of it, right? Of course, you don't want to romanticize things too much, but it's important to go outside, try new things, and make mistakes. That way, you'll experience new things and learn from them.

This has been something I have been struggling to keep in mind lately as recent events have given me second thoughts. More often than not, many situations do not have one right or wrong way to act. It's really important to tend to your needs as while keeping up with your responsibilities, so don't just work to feed your family or gain a particular status in society or give up on your hopes and dreams for the sake of being "responsible." Only you know your situation, so don't act on the opinions of those who have never stepped in your shoes.
