This past week was kind of an odd one! I spent Sunday of the previous week, Monday, and Tuesday quarantining in my flat after being exposed to Covid-19 by a couple of people.

In fact, when I was a senior in high school, people would often ask me, or even assume, that I would want to study fashion in college. Obviously, I took a very different route by studying criminology and geography. I started college wide-eyed and undeclared, but I always knew fashion was on the list of things I did not want to study. When people asked me again during my Graceful Rags tabling event last week whether or not I wanted a career in fashion (or if I would ever blog full-time, if the opportunity presented itself), I was not surprised to find that my answer was still a quick and unequivocal “no”.
