Introduction

June 16, 2010

I never know how to start a very first entry in a blog, so I’m going to just wing it. Haha.

For those of you who don’t know, my name is Melanie. I’m an 18-year-old that lives in Miami, Florida. I suppose you could easily assume that that combination of teenager and beach always produce some sort of joy, but, not quite for me. Being a recent high school graduate, I’m heading off to Providence, RI this Fall to attend Rhode Island School of Design. I’ll finally be outta here! (:

So anyway, let me explain the purpose of my blog:

Being an artist, I try to expand my knowledge in several media. I love to draw, paint, photograph, and everything else in between. I love finding new uses for things, and I love breaking out of my comfort zones, which I actually have trouble achieving more frequently than I’d like to.


Fashion is also something that I regard as an art form. It is, however, something that I’ve pretty recently started dabbling in. I don’t have a particular style, and I’m ready to experiment until I find it. A little something that I’ve realized is that I gravitate toward dainty florals and pastels, but at the same time, appreciate the edginess of black and hardware.

Thosethingstheysaid is a blog dedicated to the documentation of a girl trying things out. It represents seeking out anything unconventional to find an identity within them. It is an art and fashion blog, not the whiny ramblings of a girl who wants to “find herself.” I know who I am and what I like, and I want to piece those two together.

So as far as I am concerned, I’ve been told that my personality is gravitational, in a way. I’m loud or quiet when appropriate, I smile a lot, and I find joy in making others happy. People often annoy me, but I enjoy seeing how they react in certain situations. (That probably sounded like I think that people are like science projects. I suppose I kinda do.) Both stereotypes and hypocrisy amuse me, and I live for coincidences. I’m often indifferent, and I appreciate every thing as an art form. I’m sometimes confident and sometimes self-conscious but all-in-all I know myself and I’m okay with myself.

(And by the way, this is my old blog, that I moved away from and then back to. So for those old followers of mine, this is what you were seeing before at Imaginary Me— just more consistent and better organized. & Sorry for writing so much, but I love the feeling of starting fresh!)

I really hope you guys enjoy my posts! I look forward to blogging regularly, haha.
