Making my way through the first week of my 30 Outfits in 30 Days challenge has definitely been… interesting, for lack of better terms. The hardest part about being the default photographer is trying to find someone to take your pictures. It would probably help if I had a real camera outside of my iPhone. They do the best they can, and that’s all I can ask of a person. Luckily, I had a few people who rocked the camera earlier in the week. I need to do a quick thank you to Courtney, Hilda, Michael, Mike, Heather, and Jeff for putting up with me this week. Why must I be so complicated?

The lesson I took away from this so far is that I’ve felt calmer. I’m not stressing so much over the things that are outside my realm of control and focusing more on bettering myself. The attention I’ve been getting is still taking some getting used to, though. And the posing. And being OK while my picture’s getting taken on the street while stranglers look oddly at me. That’s alright, though. I’m surprisingly used to it.

I promise not put off doing the outfit breakdown posts to the point where I’m back-posting this many outfits at once. While watching the evolution is entertaining, this is way too much info to take in all at once. Especially on a Monday.

If you haven’t noticed, I officially changed the name of my blog to, The Musings of a Distracted Mind. It’s slowly coming together just the way I want it. Next up: post purges and tag renaming. There’s quite a few old posts that need freshening up.

I’d like to take a quick timeout to say goodbye to my pet beta fish, Fish. We couldn’t catch and treat his fin rot in time and lost him over the weekend. Fish, you were one hell of a loyal fish and thank you for bringing a smile to my face every time I came home. I’m going to miss you.
