Behind the Name


So, normally when in you are in high school and are assigned a book to read in your AP English class you kind of want to die a little bit. I for sure felt that about Brave New World by Aldous Huxley. I am the type of person that hates the books I am forced to read but love to read when its my choice. So, here I am a junior in high school cursing my teacher under my breath for assigning this dystopian novel hating every second of it.

I really can't explain how the words "scandalously unpunctual" stuck with me as I was reading. Truly the line in the book has nothing what so ever to the meaning it gave me but in the book the line is "These Atlantic services- they're really scandalously unpunctual." Like I said, totally irrelevant. But it stuck, hard.

When launching my blog I tossed around so many ideas but eventually came back to those 2 words that just stuck in my head and truly captured who I am as a person and my style.

If you didn't know me in high school I was scandalous to say the lease. Our school courtyard was made of uneven bricks from at least the 1960s and here I was strutting around in wedges and heels acting like my ankles weren't about to break. I surely was unpunctual too, never going to class although I had only 2 classes a day. And when I wasn't in class I was probably with my best friend Christina  (who also wore wedges to school) getting $1 Arizona green teas and jamming out to Dolce & Gabbana by Riff Raff.

When naming my blog I wanted it to describe not only me but its purpose to the people who would hopefully read a post or 2. All in all, I wanted my blog to inspire you in someway. But hopefully in a way that inspires you to dress and be a little more scandalous and become a hell of a lot more unpunctual.

So, although I probably spark noted the whole book I read enough to find 2 words that have been locked in my head since.

Yep, I'm a nerd. Yep, I named my blog after words in a book. Judge me.
