I thought I’d open up to you all a little bit more about what my work days are like at HQ. Over on Instagram, I mentioned that I just completed my first product launch at VidCon. A lot of you then messaged asking me what it means to launch a product and what it’s like working at YouTube. So I figured I'd take some time to do just that.
I don’t know if in the blogger book of rules I’m supposed to maintain my cool, but I’m going to have to break the rules for a hot second because 1) I couldn’t be happier to partner with one of my ALL TIME favorite brands and 2) for a cause that I hold dear to my heart.
1) The brand? Banana Republic
2) The cause? LGBTQ rights [even though I just really want to say love.]
So, I have to thank all of you- for reading, subscribing, commenting, liking-all of the things. You all not only make this way more fun and fulfilling, but you make me, this blog, this space, feel validated, and for that I’m forever grateful.
The truth is I’ve started this blog post many times over. I have so many thoughts and follow ups after my last post, but I simultaneously don’t know what to write. So after quite a few drafts, I’ve decided I’m just going to make a list of some of the things that have been running through my mind as of late. A quick check in if you may. Okay? Okay!
A lot has also been going through my mind as of late, and I feel like there hasn’t been a good place for me to share all of those thoughts with you. So with that, I’d like to launch real talk. real talk will be a new corner on the blog for us to, well, talk. For some time now, I’ve wanted to create another place for conversation that sometimes doesn’t necessarily pair well with sartorial photos.
To celebrate, 3 APMMS [all of whom are rotating from SF- insert crying emojis here], my 2 roomies, the boy and I escaped to a cozy airbnb home in Oakland [for those non bay area readers, that’s across the bridge.]
Several pro’s & con’s lists, some restless nights, and loads of soul thinking later- it has all come to an end [thank god!]
In truth, I held back some tears [I know I’m so dramatic], and my first words to Sarah were, “It will all be okay.”
