asociete

Hey guys!

I know that it’s been so, so long since we’ve been active and it really fucking sucks on our part. I’m sorry for that.

As usual though, I do have an excuse. We are both seniors right now so college applications have been kicking our asses. It seriously sucks major ass that we can’t be here for you guys, updating you on our lives.

On that note, winter break starts tomorrow and my cousin is coming from Atlanta. She’s really into fashion (although she has a different style than I do) and we both adore getting ready and done up.

Expect lots of pictures and trends and OOTD’s.

The picture that is on this post or attached or whatever the fuck you wanna call it, is from a couple weeks ago. I ordered a shirt from www.asociete.com and I got it that very day that my friends and I decided to go out and take pictures. Actually, Amruta was there. Maybe she will see this and decide to get the fuck back on.

Anyways, I really like that shirt. It has a drawing of Audrey Hepburn aka my life on it and it says “Rise up, ladies.” I think it’s very cute.

I wore printed-esque leggings with it. They’re weird. They’re really tight, too. Like, they constrict my airways tight.

I dealt with it though.

Oh, the hat is an ushanka (I think). They’re Russian. I like it a lot. It’s one of my favourites.

I can’t wait to show you guys more shit.

Maybe even some makeup looks.

I’m so fucking excited, you don’t even know.

Lately

I’ve been feeling super reflective on my life, who I’ve become, and where my life is possibly headed. This year is about two months away from ending and to be honest I’m ready to jump into whatever plans God has for me. This year has been a year of struggle, challenges, finding myself, loneliness, happiness, decisions, faith, probably everything and anything in between. Last semester I was so determined to just be bold in my faith and trust God that my time here in Boulder would get better. And, to no surprise he came through for me. Through church I made some amazing friends and made some great memories. Going home for the summer I was so unbelievably excited to spend time with my family, friends, and Tay. It wasn’t that I was crazy homesick but I was ready to add another amazing summer to my list. Then aSociete happened. From watching this vision grow from choosing logos from my dorm to having a team, website, and warehouse it has truly been nothing shy of amazing. As we all know everything worth having isn’t easy. I cried a lot, questioned myself, and had to grow up and get this company off the ground. I felt so dis-connected with kids my age because I felt no one understood what I was going through. While I was worried about turning aSociete into reality they were probably wondering how they were going to get drunk that night or what fun things they wanted to do with their friends. Pretty much normal college kid things. Sacrificing my summer for my company was like being pummeled by a wave over and over again. It was one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to do in my life honestly. Finally it came time for me to come back to Boulder for school. It was one of the weirdest changes going from working 8am-12am to living a semi-normal college student life going to school and what not. I struggled hardcore with myself and the guilt I felt for leaving everything behind. I was trying to hold onto aSociete as much as I could but live a normal college life and it broke me. I started to underestimate myself as a person and I put myself into a hole of misery I couldn’t seem to get out of it. With way too many phone calls from my step-mom, fights with my dad, and a little bit of soul searching I finally started to realize I am truly stronger than I was giving myself credit for. 

With my future hanging on the line everyday I wake up anxious and asking God to just give me a sign and the strength to trust in his time and plans for me. I’ve been accepted to 3 out of 5 colleges so far and I’m hoping I’ll be back in Cali next semester for good so I can help aSociete grow even more. I’m ready to be the person I’m meant to be or at least who I think i’m suppose to be.  I mean only God knows right? I know the life I want to live and I don’t ever want to stop chasing after it. I want to travel the world, ride an elephant, see the northern lights, see the white houses of Santorini, snowboard 150 days out of the year, own a home in the snow, make my parents proud, kind of just to name a few. I’m ready to just make sure the whole world knows who the aSociete team is and that we’re out to change the world. We’re only 19 but like many things age doesn’t matter. So world you better get ready because we’re coming for ya.
