If by chance you’re reading this, it’s due to one of two reasons. First, because you somehow found me on the corners of the internet or it's ten year from now, and I've just released a sex tape that has catapulted me into the spotlight.
Anyway, you’re probably wondering “what is this shit?” “Why am I on a page called Miriam Amdur, who is this clown?” I'm just a stylish and funny 19 year old (I think).
Next question, why are you starting a blog? That’s complicated.
One reason is because I need to prove my asshole grade nine gym teacher wrong. You see, for the past couple years I’ve been a hermit crab; rather antisocial, funny in my own way, and eavesdropping on 99% on the conversations that occur around me. But throughout my teens I dedicated so much of my time to studying, that I failed to realize that my grades mean nothing since success today is defined by Instagram followers, and retweets from celebrities.
Side note: I’m not in grade nine. I’m finishing my first year of university, and I’m looking for a way to get rich quickly, so that I can leave before having to take second year statistics. (Side side note: I’m really pro education, so I’m probably going to drag myself through the next three years of university so that my mom can frame my degree in our living room).
The message I’m trying to explain is kind of getting lost, so I’ll get back to it. Why am I starting a blog?
I feel like it’s the people that no one thinks anything of that want to do amazing things, and I’m one of those people. For years I’ve been overlooked, I’m pretty sure that most of the people I meet think I’m going to be an accountant and live behind my desk until I’m 45 when I die from cardiac arrest. But unfortunately, my passions can’t be expressed from behind a desk at Ernst and Young.
When I first started telling people that I like fashion, they were shocked. Even my closest friends. Because I spent much of my time studying, and had built up the reputation as being 'smart,' people neglected to believe that I had any other interests that did not involve me sitting on my ass for five hours reading my philosophy textbook. But I did, and I still do. For as long as I can remember my two biggest passions have always been fashion and comedy.
But how can someone have brain cells and still enjoy creativity? That’s one of the things I want to fix with this blog. Being feminine and liking certain things, does not mean that you can’t be smart. In fact I think it’s the opposite. Those who view creativity as a minimizer of intellect are simply scared, and unwilling to accept themselves.
